39 Chev 2 Door

Greetings,

I am a shade tree mechanic that researched and found my father's first car which he sold in 1951 -- a 1939 Chev 2 door. A local hot rod shop did a lot of the work, and I have had the car on the road for 20 years now. Recently, we replaced the engine and I am now finishing up by reconnecting some of the systems. The car is back on the road.

Be glad to communicate with others -- my area of speciality is car electronics which I will be happy to help others with.


Thanks!

39 Chev Photos

Please find attached photos of my 39 Chev. It was my Dad's first car, he bought it from the parents of a 19 year old guy who bought it new, then went to war and never returned. It had very low mileage, and he used the car up until 1951 when he sold it. I had always admired pictures of the car and set about to try to find it. After a couple of years searching, I was able to locate it in a farmer's field about a thousand miles north of where I live. You can see a couple of pictures of where it sat for many years. Have had it on the road since 1992, and have just built a new engine and transmission for it. Working on getting the A/C back. I really enjoy the car -- my great grandfather rode in it and he was born in 1867...

Diode Dan, I have a 39 2 dr sedan also. But not with a history like yours that is a great story, glad you was able to get it back.

I love the history in a car, even if it's in my own head not actually knowing where this car has been in the past 50-60 years, you know what I mean? But knowing it, and having such a connection, it's like it's part of the family, VERY cool Dan!
