This 1935 Chevrolet Standard has an upgraded V8 power, a well-done suspension, and an updated interior

That’s what makes this such a cool classic street machine.

When you have an all-steel rapidly approaching nearly 90 years, it looks terrific in patina. So while the body appears in nice shape for you to give this a slick paint job of a hot rod, the well-earned evolved finish it already has will get more attention than any candy-coated polish ever could. This has all the best pieces, like the Eagle hood ornament, waterfall grille, and sleek styling that defined the Chevys of this era. But this is no barn-find time capsule. The newer glass tinted windows and 17-inch Ridler wheels with a sporty stance give this a cool vibe that strikes a distinct line between old school and rat rod.

The interior continues the car’s patina feel but also transitions it to a true driver. So while the dash has the right worn-in style, the carpeting, door panels, and headliner give this a more comfortable and updated appeal. And we like how the driving feeling is the opposite of a rat rod. After all, with those, you’re lucky to get a proper seat and a whole steering wheel. But this gives you a true cruiser attitude, which means a confident and comfortable driving position. The front bucket seats are nicely upholstered, you have a Lokar-style floor shifter for the three-speed auto, and there are auxiliary readouts under the dash. And the wood-rimmed sports steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column ensures you have a commanding grip on this Chevy.

The butterfly hood loves to attract attention, and the ribbed valve covers shining from within give this the right flair for an upgraded powerhouse. This is a 350 cubic-inch V8 with a block that decodes was borrowed from a 1970 Corvette. So it’s the right kind of motor for a fun driver attitude. You also have good supporting components, like the newer power brake booster, a newer alternator, and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. It fires up eagerly as it inhales deeply with the four-barrel carburetor and exhales with a nice tune from the dual exhaust. As you look underneath this Chevy, you’re going to see some nice upgrades like tubular front A-arms, a thick rear sway bar, and front disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors.
