The Model: For 1935, Chevrolet lead the sales race with all new styling which was reflected in the entire General Motors lineup. Offered in two levels, the Standard Series EC models and the upgraded Master Series ED, which offered a full line of body styles and a long list of accessories, it is no wonder Chevrolet was the car to beat. Among the many improvements seen for 1935 was the introduction of the “Turret Top” all steel body construction which meant longer lasting vehicles, more comfort for the occupants, and a quieter ride for everyone with the Master Deluxe models featuring front-opening, rear-hinged doors for easier exiting and entering of the passenger compartment. Also introduced this year were improvements in the suspension by combining coil springs with “knee-action” shock absorbers.
The Car: The subject of a recent restoration, this Master Business coupe has been finished in a period correct color combination of Brainherd Blue with Gloss Black fenders, complemented by a set of ivorycrème wire wheels. The interior is appointed with professionally crafted tan mohair fabric and all of the garnish moldings have been restored to their factory appearance. The dashboard including all the gauges and knobs, were also brought back to like new condition. During restoration the engine was upgraded to a 1950’s era 235 cid inline six which provides a bit more power, but looks right at home, as well as converting electrics to a 12-volt system. One of the most desirable options of the day is the rear deck mounted spare tire which cost a mere $6.50 when new. Described as “turnkey” and ready to enjoy, one can see why it was No. 1 in the sales department back in 1935.
