This 1931 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe features all those attributes we prize most in a well-configured streetrod. Its steel bodied exterior carries loads of vintage visual magic, amplified by a great looking set of aftermarket wheels. A comfortable, well-appointed interior waits inside its doors and a potent drivetrain operating in top form stands by to propel this classic forward with authority.
With its thoroughly authentic overall configuration - complete with a nicely detailed rumble seat area that raises into place in its sloping rear end - this Chevy really represents its era well. An all steel body helps make it well suited to the demands of frequent driving - its construction is much more impervious to both time and gravity than its fiberglass counterparts while also immune to the stress cracks that can often detract from its appearance. True to form, the exterior shows a strong alignment here, with nice, even gaps surrounding all the body panels and a pair of doors that open and close with no issues. From the signature front grille and headlight casings on back to the rear bumper, the assembly of chrome on board seems very solid - you won\'t find any pitting or blemishes anywhere and just a thorough polishing session will take things to a noticeably higher level.
Take your position behind the wheel and you\'ll be surrounded by a tan interior with an awful lot to offer. There are some nice details on display here, starting with a pair of modern-era buckets covered in a combination of tweed and cloth that blend nicely with their surroundings while providing all the comfort needed for even the longest of excursions. Farther forward, a great looking aftermarket steering wheel on its tilting chrome column stands just in front of a well detailed dash area that sports a collection of white-faced VDO gauges on its tweed-lined instrument panel, with a JVC stereo recessed into the center, teaming with speakers in the custom center console to fill the interior with sound. A pair of vents have been seamlessly incorporated at both sides of the cabin and, with the aftermarket climate control system performing at its best, you and your passengers will ride in comfort.
Coupling with this Coupe\'s vintage streetrod persona is a drivetrain that\'s wielding abundant power to provide an exhilarating experience behind the wheel. Beneath the vented, folding hood is one very clean engine compartment, at the center of which is a 350 cubic inch V8, dressed to the nines with a full complement of polished components on board. It\'s been armed with a pair of aftermarket aluminum heads and a 4-barrel carb and is really running strong - step into the accelerator and prepare to be pushed back in your seat with some serious force. Custom exhaust cut outs have been added, so the sound this vintage Chevy sends out of its dual tailpipes has to be experienced to be appreciated. The powerplant teams with a smooth-shifting 4-speed automatic 700r4 transmission with an overdrive gear to equip this attention magnet with effortless cruising ability at highway speeds. Courtesy of the added Mustang II front end, power rack and pinion steering makes handling precise and easy, front power disc brakes join the pair in back for low-effort, fade resistant stops while coilovers make for a smooth ride. This well configured Chevy rides on a set of 15 Cragar wheels wearing Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires.
The visual impact of this 1931 Chevrolet 5 Window Coupe is undeniable, and its eager drivetrain and comfortable, well-detailed interior put it in select company. Call today!
