The Fords might be more popular, but they certainly aren’t any prettier than this Chevy.

40,203 original miles. Shiny black paint believed to be original, fantastic factory interior. Great-running 207 cubic inch inline-6. Handsome styling with a desirable 3-window coupe body. A great little Chevy ready to show and tour!

The odometer on this 1935 Chevy shows 40,203 miles and we’re inclined to believe that’s an authentic reading. The interior is certainly original and there’s evidence that the shiny black paint is largely original as well, although we suspect the fenders have been repainted at some point in the distant past. Whatever the case, it has a fantastic vintage look that is comfortable and authentic, but not tired. Our detail shop managed to bring up a wonderful gloss in the black paint and aside from some very minor micro-blisters on the doors, it’s in great condition. The styling was an evolution of the 1934 redesign, but the deeply raked grille and chrome-rimmed headlights make it look far more upscale than a Chevrolet should. Other new details include the horizontal vents on the hood that are similar to those found on contemporary Cadillacs, a metal spare tire cover, and bright red pinstripes that emphasizes the car’s 107-inch wheelbase. The chrome sparkles against the black paint, giving the car a very polished look, leading us to believe that some of it might have been restored at some point—it’s just too nice. The Fords might be more popular, but they certainly aren’t any prettier than this Chevy.

We believe the brown mohair interior is completely original, including seats, door panels, and headliner. Even the rubber mat appears to be 90 years old and in remarkable shape. The wide bench seat remains comfortable and supportive with only minor wear on the driver’s side, and it’s important to note that the camera’s flash actually makes it look worse than it is—the interior looks better in person, not worse. The big steering wheel makes this slick little coupe easy to handle and for 1935, all the gauges were set into a woodgrained panel in the center of the dash. All the gauges work properly and the rest of the controls are very simple: knobs for the headlights choke, and hand throttle, a cowl vent lever, and, well, that’s about it. There’s plenty of space in the 3-window coupe body and the seat adjusts to suit just about any driver. The massive trunk will carry all the gear you need for touring and shows no issues with rust or rot.

For 1935, Chevrolets received a 207 cubic inch OHV inline-6 engine rated at 80 horsepower—competitive with the Ford V8. The silky smooth six makes great torque and pulls the lightweight coupe around with ease. It’s nicely tuned so it starts easily once you get the choke just right and idles so smoothly that you might think it has stalled. Again, completely unexpected for a car in this price range. On the road, it pulls eagerly and makes pleasing 6-cylinder sounds but otherwise stays in the background. It stays cool, makes decent oil pressure, the generator keeps the battery topped off, and the detailing under the hood suggests someone has been in there doing some recent work. There’s correct corporate gray engine enamel, proper hose clamps, a big oil bath air filter on top of a single-barrel Carter W-1 carburetor, and correct hardware throughout. There’s time and money invested here and it shows.

The 3-speed manual transmission offers synchromesh on 2nd and 3rd, so it takes no special skills to drive this Chevy, and gear ratios make the most of the engine’s torque. 4.11 gears were standard equipment, so it’s perky around town and doesn’t mind cruising at 45-50 MPH on the open road. The floors are extremely clean with no issues, even in the trunk pan where trouble always starts. Brakes are still mechanical drums, but they’re effective and stop the coupe without any drama, so don’t start thinking you’ll have to upgrade to hydraulics or discs, because it’s just not necessary. The exhaust system has the a newer muffler with just the right tone, not loud but not invisible, either, and the Chevy sounds polished at idle or under load. 17-inch wire wheels carry flashy 5.25/5.50-17 wide whites that really make it sparkle.

Look at this pretty little car and then look at the price. With wonderful road manners, excellent preservation, and an easy-to-handle demeanor, this is an ideal tour car for the first-timer looking for something a little more substantial than your standard Model A. Call today!
