1937 Chevrolet Master Deluxe
1937 Chevrolet Master Deluxe
The 1937 Chevrolet Master and Master Deluxe was touted as "The complete car, completely new" in ads. Retooling had cost $26 million, an astronomical figure by the standards of the time. Not since 1929 had Chevrolets been altered so completely. Impressive new styling of the 1937 Chevrolet Master and Master Deluxe was the work of Jules Agramonte, who had designed the stunning 1934 LaSalle.
This Master Deluxe Coupe presents in a hot-rodded version with a smart color combination, nifty interior, and sporty 350ci crate engine. Overall very nice condition, a turnkey car that you can use to go or show or both, just pure enjoyment as it is a smooth runner, and a nice build.
With some dapper graphics and use of the two-tone paint colors of Pale Pastel Green, and Vanilla Cream, and just a smattering of red pin striping we have an aptly named “Creme De Menthe” custom rod. With its classic coupe lines, high front grille, bullet headlights, and voluptuous fenders connected by a running board, it all comes together as a cool skate. Straight lines and dimple free steel (we assume as our magnet stuck!) panels and well minded gaps, it is a great shower. Bling on all 4 corners courtesy Billet Specialties ribbed twist pattern wheels.
Total custom here with Mint Green speckled tweed buckets, same pattern headliner, and a rear storage area with a padded embossed bowtie, and some snazzy door panels also embossed ion foam bowtie and '37 graphics. Swing our eyes inward and we are met with a tilt column padded rally style LeCarra steering wheel, fronting some art deco sexy horizontal ribbed aluminum panels which house a VDO gauge cluster, temp controls (Vintage Air) and a glove box door, all embedded in a minty metal dash. Flooding the floor is a dark green plush pile carpet also in very nice spot free condition. Climbing skyward from the carpet is a Lokar shifter, ergonomically placed at the perfect driver's height.
Chevrolet provides the 350ci crate engine in V8 format and backing this is a 350 TH 3-speed transmission. Atop is a 4-barrel carburetor to feed the mill. All tucked neatly under the dual side cowled hood, and pristine engine bay. Attention to detail comes out with the color way matching ignition wires…neato.
We've had the pleasure of hosting several of this consigner/builder's cars, and not unlike any others the underside is simply showroom. No dirt, splashes, certainly no rust, and pure black, and in this case mint. A Mustang 2 rack and pinion steering/ suspension in front and a leaf spring in the rear offer up a smooth ride and good handling. Power steering allows easy drivability. A Ford 8” rear, and front disc brakes and rear drum brakes are also noted. Sparkling.
Certainly, a very nice build, rock solid, interesting visually, and a beautiful Agramonte design and line on this car. I guess one could say “minty” condition, tongue firmly planted in cheek!
