1936 Chevrolet Master Deluxe
1936 Chevrolet Master Deluxe
The 1936 Chevrolet Standard and Master DeLuxe enabled Chevy to reclaim first place from Ford during 1936. Sales were up nearly 70 percent over the 1935 Chevys. Unlike in 1935, the 1936 Chevrolet Standard and Master DeLuxe now used the same 79-horsepower six-cylinder engine; that meant an increase of five horsepower for the Standard, and a decrease of one for the DeLuxe
For consignment we offer up the 2-door coupe in the form of the Master Deluxe. This car is in average condition, with some TLC needed in the paint department, chrome re-plating department, and possibly some creative input on the interior department. An older restoration still showing some spark with a nice restored engine, and interesting interior, as well as color combo.
Bathed in Coffee ice cream tan, the older respray is showing some cracks, crazing, and minor rust underneath. Chrome needs attention particularly on the headlight areas that have sustained damage as to denting. Remainder of chrome is rusted and pitted. Red wheels are all around, and this car has 2 taillights and turn signals in front. A red metal sprayed, and chrome trimmed spare tire cover sits neatly into the rear bumper, and still allows access to the rumble seat. Opening this and we are met with dark brown faux alligator skinned upholstered bench seat.
Swinging the doors, and we see cherry veneered plywood as the door panels. This also has been used throughout as a covering on various parts of the interior. It presents in a natural color with no stains. A custom bench seat with the framing of it covered in the faux alligator, and the cushions in a striped cloth. Dash is original and maintains its luster. Nice carpet in dark tan covers the floors, and broadcloth in wool makes up the B pillar and headliner trim. Noted is a new windshield which is in the split style, and it has new weatherstripping.
Based on a totally rewired 6-volt system, a restored 206.8ci inline 6-cylinder engine is within the bay. As noted, it is very clean and rust free. A 1-barrel carburetor is on top, and a 3-speed manual transmission is on back, which pushes power back to a 4.11 rear.
An overall rust-free environment has undergone a restoration at some point as well. There is no presence of rust and all underneath seems structurally sound. Independent knee action front suspension and leaf spring rear suspension can be seen under here as well. Also noted are mechanical drum brakes, and a glass pack style exhaust.
A quick starter, smooth idler, and nice driver. All mechanicals appear sound, and engine runs as smooth as it looks!
The beneficiary of at least one restoration and looking much like the beginnings of number 2 going on. With a clean undercarriage, restored engine, but exterior paint and chrome needing attention, I'm led to believe they just did not complete round 2.
