Have you ever wanted a sleek and sinister hot rod of your own? Check out this black 1939 Chevrolet Master 85 Hot Rod Coupe at MotoeXotica Classic Cars that is equipped with modern power and cold air conditioning!
Finished in black, the car’s paint and trim are in very good order, the steel bodywork is straight, the engine bay is very tidy and the chrome bumpers are in fine shape. This is the first model year after the Diamond Crown Speedline of the past two model years. The car sports a 112.25-inch wheelbase.
This coupe rolls on radials, size 165/80R15 in front and size 225/70R15 in back. Each tire is mounted on an Eagle five-spoke alloy wheel. The tires and wheels are all in good order. Under that hood is a 350 CID V-8 engine upgraded with performance headers and dual Weber 4 barrel carburetors. The motor is married to a three-speed automatic transmission. Driver convenience features include Vintage air-conditioning and a tilt column.
Inside, the bucket seats are a black and gray vinyl and in great shape. The black carpet is in great shape, as is the neutral gray headliner. A late ‘60/early’70s Chevrolet three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver. The dashboard has been upgraded to digital with ancillary gauges. A Sony AM/FM stereo with CD player and Boston speakers completes the interior.
The Master Deluxe was now the JA, while the base model was renamed the Master 85 (JB). Not for the first time or the last, Chevrolets in 1939 borrowed styling inspiration from that year’s Cadillac models. The grille and fenders provide a longer, lower look. The major chassis change for 1939 was a new front suspension with coil springs and A-arms. There was also improved, shockproof steering and Tiptoe-matic Clutches.
Competition to this Chevrolet in 1939 included Ford’s Five-Window Coupe, Hudson’s Coupe and Plymouth’s P8 De Luxe 6 Series.
