The Chevrolet Master series of full-size automobiles ran between 1933 and 1942 and were available in a variety of body styles. Over time, many fell by the wayside, but some were cherished over the years, restored, enhanced, and even went on to win a few trophies, as is the case with this 1940 Chevrolet Master 85 2 Door. If you're looking for a vintage Chevy from the Thirties, this car is the ideal ticket.
Black is a very pre-war color, and this 1940 Chevrolet Master 85 2 Door is more or less a pre-war design, so it fits the bill to a tee. The car looks absolutely stunning with its chromed hubcaps sporting the CHEVROLET lettering in red, red rims, whitewall tires, and chrome embellishments on the body. Lighting lenses appear clear and free of damage, and you'll notice the intricate detailing along the side of the body, such as the red pinstriping and MASTER 85 script. At the rear, twin chromed tailpipes allow the upgraded engine to exhale easily. Inside, we're told that the interior is a custom job, and it certainly looks stunning in red. You'll find a bench seat with some space for cargo right behind. The instrument cluster appears stock, with some auxiliary gauges added, plus a pair of fuzzy dice for that whimsical look. There's no air conditioning, as reported by the current owner, but you can roll down the windows and let plenty of wind envelop the cabin for cooling.
This 1940 Chevrolet Master 85 2 Door has a 291ci six-cylinder engine that's reportedly punched out to 302ci. It's got Offenhauser intake manifolds with dual carburetors, a ¾ race cam, and sends drive to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission and a 9-inch Ford rear end. The current owner reports a heavy-duty truck clutch and Hurst shifter linkage as well. Furthermore, there's no power steering or power brakes, so you'll be really giving it your all when driving this car in a sprightly fashion. Who needs digital distractions when you're getting a good old-fashioned physical workout?
