New Styling

1935 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Coupe © 2011 antiquecarnut.com

Styling for 1935 was certainly a change in that it included doors rear hinged called suicide doors by us laymen, radiator cap under the hood, solid steel bodies including the top and knee action!! Of note, if one did not want knee action, solid axles were still available. The picture of this coupe was taken at a Vintage Chevrolet Club of America rally in 2006 at Grand Junction, Colorado. I did a little research and found that options included wire wheels, right tail light, wheel trim rings, a clock and ash tray combination on the glove compartment door, or a clock on the rear view mirror, fender skirts, left side spotlight, horn button color to match the window knobs, radio, heater, hood ornament and tutone paint if desired. The basic hood ornament was zeppelin like looking and I hated it! My Dad bought a new 1935 coach with that basic hood ornament and even at age 7, I disliked that ornament! At age 7, I personally bought with my money, a horn button to match the window knobs!!! The local Chevrolet dealer in our town of 1800 was one of my mentors and gave me a real good deal on the horn button!!
