1938 Chevrolet Business Coupe --

This 1938 Chevrolet Master business coupe has all the right vintage charm with a little extra power thrown into the mix. The business coupe was a necessary tool during a simpler America. The salesman needed a large trunk to carry goods city-to-city and door-to-door. Today the long hood and long trunk not only remind us of a different era, but they also have one of the most attractive silhouettes for collectors. And while many have been turned... into hot rods to represent the moonshiner era, this example is more about remembering what the successful businessman of the '30s would drive. The gray paint is a great canvas for the full red pinstripe package. And when we say full package, we mean it. You see the distinctive details in the tall grille, hood vents, and running all the way through the door line. There's even great red details on the bumper caps and correct wheel covers. And we bet you've noticed some of the cool details like fender shirts and radio antenna boldly sitting on top of the roof â€" both reminders of the beginning of the aerodynamic era. When you open the door, the tan cloth interior has a classic pattern and that classic mohair feeling. But recent investments mean this feels far fresher than anything from the '30s. As a true business coupe, storage is a priority. So you get a proper parcel shelf, as well as room behind the forward-tilting seat. This has a great vintage motoring atmosphere â€" from the feeling of the big steering wheel, to the action of the three-speed shifter, to the look of the factory gauge panel. Even the original AM radio is still on display. So it's exactly what you want when looking for a time-machine level of a distinct classic. Under the hood is Chevy's dependable inline six. This is a later model so the displacement is increased to 235 cubic-inches. Plus, this received good attention and investments over the last few years to include bored .40 kit, as well as a reconditioned generator, head, and carburetor. Plus, essentials like the water pump, fuel pump, and radiator all received attention. There's even an electric fan to help you stay cooler in traffic. This means confident vintage motoring. This was the kind of business coupe for the successful salesman who had arrived in life. And that same attitude only gets better with age on a classic like this. So don't miss out, call today!
