1940 Chevy Special Deluxe coupe.

This is a must see, "Time capsule" street rod built in Turlock California in the late 60's by a meticulous Porsche mechanic. He bought the car in the late 50's. It was said to have been in the American Graffiti movie as a back drop vehicle, I can't verify that but we have autographs and a statement from Bo Hopkins and Candy Clark.

This car looks like it could have came out of Rod and Customs or Hot Rod magazine from about 1965.

This is a rust free California car with a 40 plus year old Black lacquer paint job that is more than presentable. The exterior is arrow straight and bondo free! Very nice chrome. Full custom interior with bucket seats, chromed dash and garnish moldings. A little LOUD for my taste but, period correct.

The chassis is as detailed as the rest of the car featuring a chrome, dropped, straight axle on polished 4 bars with Corvair steering and coil overs. Built, NOT bought, by the owner. Original Hurst Air hart disc brakes with new calipers. GM rear axle on leaf springs. An early 283 V-8 with a solid cam and Muncie 4 speed and 4:11 gears. New carb and intake as this car had a Corvette fuel injection on itbut was removed just before we bought it. Runs and drives great.

If you enjoy period correct street rods and attention to detail you'll love this car. This car deserves a "Care taker," some one whounderstands its history and will enjoy it for what it is and not some one who just wants to cut it up... its Hot Rod history...
