Classic Auto Mall
6180 Morgantown Road
1936 Chevrolet 2 Door Coupe
"Mamma always said life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get!" In a way Classic Auto Mall works on the same theory, in that one never knows what is coming through the door, but most times its sweet!
For consignment a real sweet treat and a maroon and champagne colored morsel. Very tasty looking and tastefully crafted from some original metal and fiberglass parts, and custom with a hand fashioned tail of this car complete with custom taillights, a shaved bumper and of course those 15 inch Colorado Custom Wheels wrapped in good all season rubber. It is just dripping with visual flavor and all packaged up ready to be gifted to its new owner. All in hot rod form this 36 is a head turner.
Already starting with a gorgeous design, the builder of this car decided to make some improvements, taking liberties with fiberglass fenders, a shaved rear bumper, custom taillights, nerf bars, and tri bar shiny chromed headlights hanging off of either side on the cowled hood. Turn signals have been snuck in directly beside the headlights, which very nicely compliments the long oval front vertical ribbed grille. The radiator surround is bathed in maroon which rises to the hood where the maroon tales over the top of the car from the beltline upward. Below is a champagne metallic which covers the curvaceous fenders, running board and lower doors. Between the two colors, is a nicely curved airbrushed fade painted spear which fades from the champagne to the maroon. Tinted glass is reserved for the rear and side glass, and custom curved modern rear view side mirrors are attached to both doors. To further sugar coat this car, 15-inch Colorado Custom Wheels with curved spokes are wrapped with 195/60R15's in front, and 31 x 18.00x15LT's on the back. Even more foil wrapping is provided by dual tailpipes peeking out from under the rear custom roll pan. Cherry!
Digging a bit deeper into our box we swing the doors and find gray and black zig zag pattern upper door coverings in broadcloth, a billet styled armrest/door pull and a shiny door actuator. Below is more smooth gray vinyl with some stitched accenting panels. Moving inside we see high backed buckets adorned with velour zig zag in black and gray and smooth vinyl gray bolsters all bordered by some gray piping throughout. A tasty faux black leather covered dash front houses a trio of large round cream faced gauges all fronted by a shiny drilled surfers cross styled rally wheel. Sitting atop the dash is an aftermarket Sport-Comp tachometer for the world to see what kind of RPMs you are turning. On the rounded inner roof is a very tight and seamless fuzzy broadcloth headliner in very dark gray. Black carpeting floods the floors and a B&M shifter is noted in the center. Power windows and vent windows, cold R-134 Vintage air is in. A shout to the trunk which is all fixed up and has a custom fabricated cover for the fuel cell that resides in the center of the trunk. Suh-weeeet!
With some cars we need to sugar coat the description to make it sound better, but this car is fully enjoyed right out of the box. Some of that enjoyment comes from the 350ci V8 engine now stuffed under the cowled hood. It is all shiny and polished with neatly organized wiring, ceramic coated headers, and an Edelbrock intake grabbing fuel from a Holley 750cfm carburetor. On back is a turbo 350 automatic transmission. All beautifully appointed and even a ceramic coated and smoothed chrome firewall is highly reflective of exactly what this car is made from!
No rust, just a perfectly painted and restored undercarriage consisting of straight steel. Up front a Mustang II suspension is now on and on back a 4 link with a coilover setup installed. On back we see a Ford 9-inch pumpkin with 3.55 gears and a shortened axle to accommodate these big rear tires. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners, and a Flowmaster exhaust is noted ending in dual pipes out the rear.
Not unlike its candy references I've given it, this car is difficult to only have 1 ...lap around the test track so I took several and enjoyed the flavor of plenty of power, smooth as silk shifting, and tasty handling. Driving this car is definitely a sugar rush!
A beautiful job with all stones turned over on the restoration, interior and power train. Excellent color combo, some yummy shaving and frenching (antenna), nerf bars, Colorado Custom Wheels and massive rear rubber, just reach in and sample all of it right here in the hallowed halls of Classic Auto Mall. MMMM...MMMM Good!
