350CI CHEVY, 700R4 TRANS, MUSTANG II FRONT END, VERY CLEAN BUILD THROUGHOUT

This 1938 Chevrolet two door sedan is an all-steel rod that gets big points for style and comfort. Far less common than Fords, this bowtie cruiser will stand out from the crowd and not just because of the brilliant copper paint job and chopped top.

Look closely at this 1938 Chevy and you'll see a ton of cool original details like the body line that comes off the front fenders and extends into the doors, the wrap-around grille, and the trick louvers in the hood sides that all help define this rod. Of course, the chopped top gives it that traditional hot rod rake and was so neatly done that it seems to emphasize the car's lines rather than overpowering them. And without a top-quality finish, it's all academic, and fortunately the guys who built this one were pros. The body fits together beautifully, with tight gaps and excellent shut lines all around, surely even better than it was when it was new. Much of the factory trim remains intact, although the door handles, bumpers, and taillights have been shaved and the headlight buckets themselves have been Frenched. On top of all that, it has been bathed in that eyeball-searing copper paint, which is called Sunburst, and this Chevy wears it well, giving the car a unique look that bridges the gap between 1938 and today.

Inside there's a beautiful tan interior with comfortable bucket seats up front and a custom rear bench that makes this a comfortable cruiser for four. The dash has been fitted with Dakota Digital gauges fitted into hand-made aluminum panels with a matching glove box lid. The center stack contains an air vent for the Vintage Air A/C system, which also feeds through some subtle eyeball vents, as well as an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit with speakers in the kick panels. Pleated door panels maintain the retro feel on the suicide-style doors and the elegant tan carpets make it feel upscale and polished rather than hot rod basic. There's plenty of room for even tall drivers and despite the chopped top, visibility is very good in all directions, making this a rod you can drive with confidence. You'll note that the trunk lid now swings to the side and the entire cargo bay is upholstered in tan carpets with plenty of room for gear, despite custom enclosures for the battery and spare tire.

Road trips are easy with the 350 cubic inch V8 living under the hood. Dressed for show with a ton of chrome, it delivers great power and surprising economy, making this a first-class highway cruiser. There's a billet accessory drive that makes for neat packaging, and an Edelbrock carburetor and intake manifold handle the fuel mixing. Some credit for that highway performance surely goes to the 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission as well as the 10-bolt rear end with highway-friendly gears inside. Up front, an independent Mustang II type setup allows that low, raked stance, while the rear is held up with reliable and comfortable leaf springs. A custom dual exhaust system features mellow-sounding mufflers and the large capacity fuel tank allows this Chevy to cruise all day. Stylish 17-inch aluminum wheels offer a high-tech look that works rather well, and they're wrapped in recent Goodyear Eagle radials.

This awesome Chevy represents a huge bang for the buck, a fully-sorted rod that's ready to rock for a fraction of the build cost. Call today!
