1940 Chevrolet Street Rod


Redesigned with modern, streamlined styling and choice engineering updates underneath, the 1940 Chevrolet lineup easily outsold its counterparts from archrival Ford. In addition to their sales success, a 1940 Chevrolet business coupe was driven to victory in Argentina’s 6,000-mile Gran Primo Internacional Del Norte race by none other than future Grand Prix World Champion, Juan Manuel Fangio. Featuring sleek, modern styling, this 1940 Chevrolet Street Rod is an eye-catching custom ride retaining its excellent original styling with the unmodified OEM body sporting eye-catching Tangerine and Blue-accented custom flames to the front end and hood over a super-clean White paint finish. Ample power is delivered by a small-block Chevrolet V-8 engine equipped with a polished aluminum intake manifold, Demon carburetor, serpentine-belt accessory drive, and headers feeding a full-length dual exhaust system. Other highlights include MSD 6A electronic ignition and 12-volt electrics. In addition to power steering, the Chevy is equipped with power steering and power front disc, rear drum brakes via a modern dual-circuit master cylinder and vacuum booster. Supporting features include the OEM chassis frame, an aluminum radiator, electric cooling fan, and transmission cooler.

A Lokar-shifted GM 3-speed automatic transmission delivers the power to the road via a GM 10-bolt rear end. Other updates include a modern Mustang II-type independent front suspension system including an anti-sway bar, disc brakes, and precise rack-and-pinion steering. The Chevy’s highly inviting interior compartment includes late-model front bucket seats in Burgundy cloth and vinyl upholstery, a custom center console and Lokar floor shifter, and Burgundy carpeting. Desirable passenger amenities include modern r134a air conditioning plus a Kenwood AM-FM CD stereo head unit. A leather-wrapped Le Carra 4-spoke steering wheel, Beige custom headliner, and a full complement of Stewart-Warner instruments, and a Quartz clock round out the sleek Chevrolet’s luxurious and highly functional interior compartment. The trunk features a Chevrolet “bowtie” motif and includes a battery charger. Riding on a set of attractive Billet Specialties 5-spoke wheels and low-profile radial tires deliver an aggressive stance. Ready to cruise and enjoy, this 1940 Chevrolet Street Rod is a high-quality custom ride.
