The best part about the hot rod era is the sheer diversity of cars that were transformed from basic transportation to show-stopping custom vehicles. This 1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Coupe is a beautiful example of a classic hot rod combining the vintage looks of the Chevy with a flashier look and added power under the hood. If you like what you see, this cherry-red hot rod is being sold through Auto Investors of Dothan, Alabama.
This steel-bodied Chevy received a frame-off restoration, which is immediately obvious once you start examining this car. The bright red color looks amazing thanks to a two-stage paint job and high-gloss finish, and everything from the chrome trim to the glass has been replaced for a flawless appearance. The body gaps are all perfect and even the undercarriage is show-ready with red paint on the body and a high-contrast black paint on the chassis. The lowered stance and 17-inch chrome wheels finish off this Chevy's custom look.
Inside, there's even more to enjoy with tan leather bucket seats, power windows, air conditioning and stylish Dolphin gauges, while the car's bright red paint job carries over into the interior on the dash and steering column. Even the trunk of this car is impressive with fully finished trim to match the cabin.
Under that long, red hood sits a 350 CID V8 as well as an engine compartment that is show-ready as the rest of the car. The engine has an aluminum intake, Edelbrock carburetor, HEI distributor and long-tube headers, and power is sent to the rear tires through a 700R4 automatic transmission and a 10-bolt Chevy rear end. The chrome engine accessories and valve covers finished with complementing red fins add a nice touch under the hood, while the Nova front subframe makes this car more of a cruiser with power steering and power disc brakes.
If you want a unique hot rod that isn't all chopped, channeled and shaved, then this custom 1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Coupe is a great choice. Auto Investors currently has this '40 Chevy listed for $44,995, but you can click HERE to make an offer.
