Beautifully long and low, the Master De Luxe is enhanced by the wide windows and doors. A great vehicle that has received a body off restoration and if your looking for a very nice 36' Chevy, this one should be taken into serious consideration. Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present to you this 1936 Chevrolet Master De Luxe.
This 1936 Master Deluxe Sedan was partially restored when purchased by the previous owner. However there were a lot of things wrong with the car, including that it had been in an minor accident at some point. The new owner had a dream of keeping the exterior as original looking as possible but re-designing it with a powerful modern engine, transmission, brakes and air conditioning so that it can cruise the highways of today.
The current owner is a mechanical engineer and working with an award winning custom car mechanic in Austin, they created this dream car. A complete body off restoration was done. The frame was bolted together (common before welding became popular). It was straightened where needed, a larger channel created for the larger driveshaft and the frame was welded to handle the larger engine, torque and higher speed road stresses.
For rust protection and beauty the car showcases a metallic grey paint, that is in very good condition. A two tone Chevy can attract anybody in the streets and this one is no excception. It rides on a set of Weld Racing wheels wearing P215 /65 R15 front and P245 / 60 R15 rear that give it a nice look to the car.
There is something about late 30's GM that just ideally scream customization, and the original details like that slash coming off the back of the fenders and going through the doors of the factory body. The electrical system was converted from a 6V to 12V, and the battery which was used to hang from the frame under the front passenger seat was moved to the trunk.
This nicely built 1936 Chevy Master Deluxe is very appealing, and with a big back seat therefore there is no excuse not to take the entire family out for a ride. The interior is usually one of the last places this type of cars gets done while restoring. This one features a grey color and a silver dashboard to match the exterior of the car.
This interior is fully finished with bucket seats that were changed out from a heavy split-bench seat to a bucket seats from an Oldsmobile Calais. The bench seat in the back was left. Custom gauges to keep that classic look but still with an air of a hot rod. The original '36 Chevy did not have turn signals and so they are not required on the vehicle but for safety reasons the owner wanted them installed.
An aftermarket Sony radio was installed in the glove compartment and a set of speakers are in each side of the car. The door panels have been custom made to match the seats but still keeping the original moldings. A new small block V8 engine Chevy 350 was installed. It is a 4 barrel, dual exhaust with more power that will ever be needed.
The owner has not found top speed on this vehicle but it sure can be over a 100mph. Looking underneath the car, the amazing attention to detail continues as you can see all of the pictures below.
