Description:

It''s always great to see a new take on an old classic. The 1940 Chevy was a slam-dunk in terms of styling, but this beautiful cabriolet street rod adds a few tricks that maybe you haven''t seen before and creates something that will definitely stand out at shows. The most obvious upgrade is relocating the headlights into the lower fenders, using units that look like they might have been borrowed from a 1941 Willys. Regardless, the look is striking and sleek and totally unlike anything else you''ve seen at the shows. The bodywork around those headlights (well, the whole car, actually) is quite good with straight sheetmetal and decent gaps all around, which is critical in a convertible. Other mods include the hood vents that replicate the original stainless, with the rest of the trim being shaved and smoothed out of sight. Custom tubular bumpers front and rear hug the body''s contours, with the rears wearing original taillight housings relocated to fit just right. The black paint looks lustrous, particularly with that slash of purple accenting the curves like Buick''s famous "sweepspear" and it looks just as good here. It''s been driven a bit, so it isn''t trailer queen perfect, but that''s not what you''re looking for anyway. A custom-made grille is still distinctively Chevy, and for safety there''s a high-mounted rear brake light that''s nicely integrated. The impressive interior brings OEM-grade materials and workmanship that make this Chevy a pleasure to drive. Power front seats appear to have been borrowed from a late-model and finished with a bowtie emblem on their backs, and the look is quite appropriate in the full-sized ragtop. Matching door panels were created and nicely detailed with a combination of original handles and late-model switches for the power windows. There''s more custom metalwork on the dash, with polished aluminum gauge panel, center stack, and glove box door, with instrumentation by VDO. A/C vents are neatly integrated into the design so they look like they''ve always been there, right above the great-sounding AM/FM/CD stereo with speakers throughout the car. Black canvas covers the power top overhead and there''s also a tan vinyl boot for when you''re running alfresco. Even the trunk is neatly finished to the same standards as the interior and includes a handy storage pocket. For power, they borrowed a fresh 350 cubic inch LT1 V8 and dropped it between those fat fenders. Although the car was built a few years ago, it shows only 3415 miles on the powertrain, so it''s fresh and ready to rock. There''s enough chrome inside for a fleet of Buicks, and with 300 horsepower on tap, it''s more than just pretty. A custom serpentine belt drive system powers the accessories and obviously someone spent some time making sure the wiring and plumbing was neat. It''s backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, so it''s just effortless on the highway. The 10-bolt rear end hangs on air shocks, so you can easily adjust ride height, and the custom Flowmaster exhaust system gives it an appropriate hot-rod soundtrack. Flashy chrome wheels wear 195/60/15 front and 235/70/15 rear Cooper radials for just a bit of rake. One of the best-looking pre-war cars only gets better with these tasteful upgrades and I guarantee nobody will every show up with the same car. Call today!
