1936 Chevrolet Master Deluxe 2 Door Sedan © 2011 antiquecarnut.com

1935 model Chevys were not well received by the buying public, so Chevy had to do an immediate turn around-the public said-“Get rid of those suicide doors!!” So, they did!! This was the first year for Chevy and hydraulic brakes!! It is hard to believe old Henry wouldn’t put them in his cars until 1939!! This model Chevy was the best selling car in America in 1936 and Chevrolet had the second best selling year in it’s history!! When comparing the Master Deluxe series with the Standard series, the Master was a lot more attractive although the body styles were virtually the same. The Master featured chromed headlamp shells and hood vents which really set it off! The interiors were more plush and the Master featured a bench front seat as opposed to buckets in the Standard. I well know as my Dad had 2 Standards and I hated the bucket seats!!
