THE CHEVROLET

By the early 1920s Chevrolet had abandoned its attempt to compete head-on with Ford's Model T - Ford was able to drop its prices annually whereas Chevrolet's steadily rose - and re-positioned itself as a 'middle-market' manufacturer whose products possessed a degree of refinement lacking in the Model T. Formerly relying on four-cylinder cars, Chevrolet introduced a new range powered by the famous 'Stovebolt' overhead-valve six in 1929, these highly popular six-cylinder Chevrolets helping GM's mainstay out-sell Ford for most of the 1930s. Chevrolet's top-of-the-range model was renamed 'Master Six' for 1934 and featured revisions to the modern 'Airstream' body styles introduced the preceding year. The chassis incorporated Chevrolet's 'knee action' coil-sprung independent front suspension, four-wheel mechanical brakes, and a three-speed gearbox. Introduced for 1935 on the Master Deluxe, 'Turret Top' all-steel bodies were the next big innovation, appearing on the standard series the following year.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Acquired by the vehicle's owner in the summer of 2007, this hot rod Chevy features a 283 Small block motor with a single 4 barrel carburetor delegated to the job of fuel delivery. Modernized with a bevy of components to not only make the vehicle keep up with traffic but blow past it, the powerful motor is kept cool with a modern radiator and electric fan, while front disc brakes ensure that deceleration is as rapid as acceleration.

Inside, a classic look has been maintained on the dash with round gauges, yet a modern radio has been installed as to ensure its occupants plenty of personalized tunes when cruising. The bench in the cabin has been upholstered in a brown cloth along with the door cards. The exterior has been finished in a metallic blue and with chrome bumpers, wheels, and hood trim. This Chevy is ready for any stoplight grand prix or Sunday night cruise and will surely provide endless automotive adventures for its next owner.
