1935 Chevrolet Master Deluxe 4 Door Sedan © 2011 antiquecarnut.com

This is one of two 1935 model sedans I have ever seen. This picture was taken at a VCCA rally in Rapid City,S.D. in 1996. The other was owned by Mr. DeVaney of Waynoka, Oklahoma, who had bought his new. As we know 1935 was right in the middle of the 1930’s depression and very few people in my end of the world could afford to buy new cars and in addition to that suicide doors just were not well received by the buying public. Consequently Ford overcame Chevrolet in sales for the first time since 1930. Previous to buying a new 1935 coach, my Dad had driven a 1930 model Chevy and one day here he came driving up in this new beautiful green 1935 with yellow wheels. What a change from the old 1930!! And what a surprise!! That is one of the great things about the old days-styling changes were obvious and car companies made so many immediately identifiable changes!!
