There’s just something about the handsome lines of a pre-war business coupe that make great custom cars.
Somewhere between the flowing fenders and a moonshiner history lies an attraction that we can’t help but make all our own. So with its sleek look, upgraded interior, updated suspension, and added V8 power, this 1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe is the custom car you know you want to take home.
Streamlined and sleek, the swept-back grille and rounded fenders give this ’39 Chevy a substantial, important look. Surprisingly, none of the bodywork appears to have been altered. So every time you feel how the doors shut with confidence, it’s truly a testament to how they could really built them right. Of course, the classic look retains a modern level of appeal when they take the time to give this a well-done dark cherry paint job. It’s a quality application with plenty of luster that really lets the light show off this Chevy’s curves. There’s loads of classic appeal in details like the Chevy badging, chrome bumpers, and Deluxe hood ornament. That’s joined by more modern sporty pieces, like the clear headlights, large dual exhaust tips, and American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with an extra meaty set of rear tires.
The full dark package continues inside with the custom interior. You’ve got a nice deep black on the carpets, door panels, and headliner. Even the large trunk was re-done in black, and it has cool details like the Chevy bow tie and flames embossed in it. And our favorite dark pieces are those upgraded bucket seats that really turn this 1930s machine into an all-day comfortable cruiser. The Lecarra sports steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column. That gives you a clear view of the whole dash, including the AM/FM/cassette stereo and full gauge package with a large speedo and tach.
Cruising is easy with the right powerplant, and the 283 cubic-inch Chevy V8 means this classic now has robust small block power. It has some nice upgraded polished pieces like the valve covers, Moroso air grabber, and alternator. But what you’ll really like are the components that make this a better powerhouse. This includes a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD coil, double belts, and an electric fan. Out on the road, you can appreciate the full package that includes the comfort of a Mustang II style independent front suspension, rear sway bar, three-speed automatic transmission, front disc brakes, and power steering. So now you’re starting to get the picture on how versatile this custom Chevy really is.
