1939 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Six Coupé
About the car
The six-cylinder Chevrolet Coupé was the most successful dirt-road racer of the day, its most famous exponent being future Formula 1 World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio, and nowadays this charismatic model continues to be the weapon of choice on long distance rallies such as the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge. With nearly £30,000 spent between 2014 and 2016, all works carried out included rebuilding the engine; fitting an aluminium fuel tank, upgraded fuel filter, and electric fuel pumps; installing a twin-pipe exhaust system; replacing the starter motor; and fitting up-rated tyres, a period spotlight, and coil-sprung suspension.
This 1939 example is the perfect rat rod, hotrod, or rally car, a charming Chevy supplied with sundry restoration invoices and a V5C registration document.
