1940 Chevrolet Deluxe Coupe Street Rod For Sale

1940 Chevrolet Deluxe Coupe Street Rod
Mileage: 15,750 Miles
First off, This is a Real, Steel 1940 Chevy Coupe,
Not a Fiberglass Reproduction, and
That gives this rod an integrity and a feeling
You just can't duplicate with fiberglass,
no matter how high the quality.
Built by Zimco Fabrication in South Windsor, Connecticut,
The original body lines were left largely unaltered,
Which gives this car a Vintage Elegance
that you don't get from one that has been chopped and channeled.
The body is All Original Steel
Except for the running boards and rear fenders,
which were supplied by Chicago Fiberglass.
The bumpers have been removed and
the door handles shaved.
Horsepower is compliments of a
502 cubic inch Big Block GM Performance Parts Motor
Making 440 horsepower,
It's more than capable of snapping some necks
when you stand on it.
Holley supplied the 750 CFM 4-barrel
And since this car was built to cruise,
You''ll also notice Smart Upgrades like A/C,
Power Steering, and
A big alternator to power everything.
Up front, there's a custom 4-core Radiator from Brassworks
that's cooled by a custom SPAL Electric Fan with Thermostat and
An Edelbrock Aluminum Water Pump.
Bitchin Products supplied the smooth firewall,
which really cleans up the entire area.
Highly Detailed with Polished Stainless, Brass, Aluminum, and Chrome,
It's a well-designed and arranged engine bay
that makes servicing the big block easy
(ever tried to change the plugs on, say, a late-model Camaro).
The big block is ably backed up by a TH400 3-speed Automatic Transmission,
which is about the most bulletproof Automatic transmission
Ever conceived by the mind of man.
Out back, there's an equally tough 9-inch Ford Rear
that carries 3.73 gears on a limited slip, and
Has been narrowed to handle those large-by-huge Hooser Tires.
Denny's Drive Shaft supplied the Custom Stainless Steel Drive Shaft,
That is more than up to the task of handling all that torque.
There's an Independent Mustang II Front End from Fat Man Fabrications,
While the differential is held up with a Modified 4-link Setup
that makes hard launches possible with a minimum of fuss.
Disc Brakes live at all four corners
behind those super-traditional Weld Convo-Pro Wheels
that wear 205/60R15 Cooper Touring radials up front and
A set of massive 3321.5-15 Hoosers out back.
I have to give two big thumbs-up to Al's Interiors
for creating this very traditional and authentic driver''s environment.
The power seat is a split bench,
which tilts forward to allow access to the back seat area.
Done in red and white leather,
it looks very appropriate to the 1940''s style and era,
and the work was beautifully done.
The original dash has been smoothed and filled,
then stuffed with a complete set of Modern Stewart Warner Gauges.
A fresh Billet Steering Wheel is wrapped in Matching White Leather,
and sits atop a Tilt Ididit Steering Column with Borgeson U-joints.
There's a Hurst Shifter on the floor,
and the seat has been skillfully molded to clear
the Mini Console constructed to hold it.
Overhead, a matching red leather headliner
has been stitched up, and
matches the red carpets underfoot.
Controls for the Vintage Air A/C and Powerful Entertainment System
are in the center console,
while vents have been discreetly installed under the dash.
Billet touches abound,
tying the interior into the engine compartment,
and the doors, windows, and locks are all power actuated.
The remote pops the doors open,
and if you happen to lock your keys in the car,
a hidden switch opens the window for access
for obvious reasons, we'll show the new owner
where the switch is hidden, but will refrain from mentioning it here.
