1934 Chevrolet Master Sedan

All Original and Complete

Only 64965 miles

Good Running Condition

This 1934 Chevy Master is a complete and fully functional piece of automotive history. We purchased it in 1959, with around 62000 miles on it. It now has 64965 miles on it.The car has been garaged every night we have owned it and not been driven in winter.

This car starts reliably and runs well. It does not burn oil or have any significant fluid leaks. It rides well and feels solid, with no rattles or shaking. The doors close with a satisfying click.The windows, doors, and lights are all intact and all work.The original roof insert is still in place and in good condition, with no leaks.The tires were on it when we bought the car.They have plenty of tread, with no cracks or dry rot.

We don’t know its history prior to 1959, but given the excellent condition of the car when we bought it,we presume it never needed or had any major repair work.During the time we have owned this car, no major overhaul or mechanical restoration work has been done on it.We did have the valves ground and the carburetor professionally rebuilt 10 or 20 years ago. We also repainted the car in 1976 and had both bumpers rechromed 30 or 40 years ago.

The interior is the original mohair, although moths got inside 20 years ago and damaged much of the upholstery.There is carpet in the back seat area, but it is very deteriorated.The steering wheel is not cracked.The speedometer and odometer work well.The ammeter, oil, and gas gauges all work, although they may not be reliable.The water temp gauge is not working.The vacuum-operated windshield wiper no longer works.The seals around the windows are not in good shape, so we keep the car out of the rain.The cowl ventilator works.

*Front and rear chrome bumpers

This ‘34 Chevy has a clear title and current registration.The VIN is 21DA05 23696, which matches the code stamped on the ID plate under the floor mat just inside the right front door.

Multiple sources show this probably means:
