Authentic, affordable, and absolutely stylish, this 1940 Chevrolet Deluxe Business Coupe knows how to turn back the clock with true vintage motoring.

This pre-war Chevy makes a great first impression, and that all starts with the paint. The Kingston Gray is the factory-correct color, and it feels like the kind of color you get with an art deco kind of style. The paint was refreshed later in life, and so it has a good mix of proper shine and aged-in classic. We also love the details in the paint, like how you have a full-length red pinstripe, and that coordinates so well with the red wheels and whitewall tires. The grille absolutely goes with the art deco style, and it's part of a complete and classic brightwork package that includes the hood ornament, two-piece wheel trim, and bumpers with detailed overriders.

The time capsule presentation is continued inside. You have the classic mohair fabric on the seats. It's part of a later restoration, and just like the exterior, it has the right amount of age to give you originality without staleness. Also, just like the exterior, there's more great art deco style. So lovers of vintage will love the full display on the dash. This is a business coupe, and so the rear was about deleting the seat and having more storage for vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, or whatever was going door-to-door in this Chevy.

Chevy's inline-six was the backbone of the company for decades, so it's great to see a year-correct 216 cubic-inch motor correctly presented in the engine bay. These were known for a mixture of durability and smoothness, and the way this motor fires up and runs upholds that feeling in modern times. And you'll love the classic feel of the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission as it gives you proper control over this classic powerplant.

Complete with owner's manual and service manual, this is an attention-grabbing cool cruiser. So when a pre-war classic is affordably up for grabs, you know you need to act quickly to get it home. Call today!!!
