How rare is my car ?

Hello, I just got a 1935 Chevrolet Master Deluxe. I knew nothing about the car when I got it 3 days ago except that it was a Chevy 3 window coupe with suicide doors, the price was right, and looked like it would make a cool Hot Rod. After a few days on in net I now know its a 1935 Master Deluxe. From what I have been reading this is a rare modal. The car has no drivetrain but I don't need that. The body is all there and in good shape. I have about 90% of the accessories (headlight, taillights, front and back bumpers, Etc. Etc.). I will try and get some pics on soon and start a Project Journal when I start the project. If anyone can help me with more info about this car it would be great. Thanks HDman.

I redid the driveline in a 35 Master coupe in the late 70s for a guy. It was a drag car with a mint low mile, no rust ever. I lost track of the owner & car many years ago.

Keep a google search going, there is tons of info on just about every car...if you have the time to open all the links.

Hey HD they made 346,442 Master Deluxe and 201,773 standard cars in 35. The Master was advertised as the first all steel chevy and had suicide doors where the standard had regular doors. It was the first year since 1930 that Ford out sold Chevy. I tried to post a link to info. but had no luck.

Pictured below is my 1934 Master Sedan (4 Door). It is fully street rodded....350/700R4, ford 8" rear end, mustang II and rack and pinion steering. The '34 body was all wood underneath, the '35 had less wood, the '36 was the first year with NO wood. There are LOTS of web sources for parts, I kept the body stock except for side mirrirs and I cut a third brake light in the belt line in the back. A couple of my favorite resources other than those named include:

i and i reproductions http://www.iandireproduction.com/

chevys of the fortys http://www.chevsofthe40s.com/ (They go back to '35/'36)

Very cool,
I have been working on my 35 Chevy Master. I am re-doing the wood in the doors right now. It has a MII w/ power rack, SBC power and a Ford 8.8 in the back. Going for a very subdued look. It will mainly be a nice family cruiser. Can't fit them all in the 914.
I have only seen one other 35 Master, and that was at Dream Cruise

Mark
Where I am at now:







What it will be:

I like the rendering......of course, you can tell I'm a fan of two toning our bigger cars.

I have a good friend who runs a '35 Chevy two door STANDARD. Main difference is that car looks more like my '34 Master than your '35 does. Chevy was sorta into that 'promote this years 'Master' to NEXT year's 'standard' body style' etc. Of course, '34 Master and '35 Standard parts are NOT interchangeable....... couldn't have THAT !!

Great looking project.....keep us posted !
