Vehicle description

1931 Chevrolet 5-Window Coupe Everybody craves the finer things in life. It's human nature. Even in the depths of the Great Depression, many of the people who could afford a new, low-priced car had their sights set high, wanting a vehicle with a bit more style, power and refinement than the run-of-the-mill economy offering. In the early 1930s, those people often turned to Chevrolet, and drove off the dealer lot in a 1931 Independence or a 1932 Confederate. General Motors' volume brand had been working towards taking the Ford Motor Company's best-selling crown for almost two decades, and with Ford's four-cylinder Model A aging and its yet-to-be-proven V-8 still in the wings, the six-cylinder-powered Chevrolet stepped in as the most popular car in America in 1931. What happens when you take an all steel '31 Chevrolet body, add in some fiberglass fenders, drop in a modded Chevrolet V8 and pile on a list of mind blowing parts for good measure? You get one incredible street rod that instantly becomes the center of attention wherever it goes! Featuring a traditionally clean appearance, a custom leather interior and a nice level of detail, this stunning 5-window coupe is a compilation of top-notch components. And what's better: it's a fully sorted, finished cruiser that was built by our consignor, above all else to be driven and enjoyed. If you're the kind of enthusiast who wants an impressive classic that you can hop in, turn the key and go cruising with, your chariot has arrived! Exterior The all steel body draped in Key Lime Green with great curving fiberglass 1932 Chevy fenders connected by black rubber coated running boards and almost edible shiny chrome, announce the arrival of a real head turning monochromatic rod. The paint does show some orange peel and could stand a good color sanding and buffing but these flaws are not noticeable until up close. A 1932 Chevrolet grille with its fine chrome wire mesh is framed by stalk mounted headlamps growing from either fender. A '32 hood is on as well and displays nice heat extraction vents on the sides as well as being center hinged. 14 and 15" Cragar chrome wheels, front and rear respectively, are wrapped by newer radials on all 4 corners. With a gleam that it could be a fishing lure, a truly fine example from way back in 1931...chrome bumper to chrome bumper. Even the custom tinted rear dual stop lights and the halved rear bumper are outstanding additions. Interior Comfortable late model tan overstuffed leather buckets occupy a pristine interior, all in tan with a peppering of polished aluminum knobs, cranks and chrome bezel gauges. Tan carpeting envelops the floor, and meets up to truly custom padded door panels with padded oval inserts, broken up by billet style window cranks and door releases as well as a padded armrest. The tan steel dash houses all the essential gauges centered above the automatic shifter and to the left is a large chrome bezel tachometer. A wood rimmed Pilot sport steering wheel sits atop a late model column that is equipped with the tilt function and both work together for easy access in and out of the car. A roof mounted AM/FM/CD stereo is top dead center for all your auditory pleasures. Drivetrain Peeking under either side of the front cowling your eye is caught by a massive 350ci V8 with a 700R4 4-speed automatic with a TCI manual lock up bolted to the back. This combination sends power back to a 10-bolt rear axle with unknown gearing. Custom Parr Automotive valve covers, a chrome air cleaner housing, as well an Edelbrock aluminum intake and Edelbrock 4bbl 600cfm carburetor dress up the engine bay nicely. Silver painted rams horn exhaust manifolds finish off the engine bay and this is one of the few classics that the mill attracts as much attention as the car. Undercarriage One word could be used to describe the underside of this rod, and that is showroom! Dual exhaust works their way back through glasspack style mufflers and sports chromed dual exhaust tips. Beautiful front suspension in the form of a Fat Man Mustang II independent unit and disc brakes are seen, as well as in the rear a 4 bar and coilovers with drum brakes. Drive-Ability A pop of the door and a twist of the key and I'm in street rod heaven. The V8 has a great rumble but not so much as to drown out my favorite tunes. Taking a tour around the often imitated but never duplicated Classic Auto Mall test track I was cool as a cucumber and my ears had a perfect mixture of exhaust notes along with tunes on the radio. Power was more than adequate, shifting smooth, and braking was exceptional and bias free. One issue with most street rods is lack of interior room and comfort, this car has that problem solved and then some and we noted all functions were operational. A well sorted, well thought out hot rod that will let you cruise in style and comfort. Many of the creature comforts of a modern car while retaining the look and style of days gone by. Beautiful complimentary Key Lime Green with a tan interior, snappy chrome Cragar wheels, and custom touches in all the right places. This lime won't turn your face sour, but it will turn your car friends green with envy.
