This 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Restomod is a full uniform custom build. It's the kind of thoughtful layout where not only do the interior and exterior coordinate, but even the engine bay and undercarriage, too. And there are so many unique details that you're sure to take home some trophies. That's why you're already hooked on this one even before you check out the fuel-injected V8, comfy features (including A/C), overdrive transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and adjustable air ride suspension.
Sapphire and silver make a terrific two-tone that's perfect for a car like this. After all, this Chevy's steel body has been treated like precious metal. These quality DuPont paints have been laid down with a professional hand and plenty of clearcoat on top. So while the investment in the paint alone is often more than what others spend on their whole car, the result is an award-worthy shine. Flowing fenders, mirror-like bumpers, and an Art Deco grille show off the best of a classic vibe. But the more you look, the more you'll also notice some very unique features that you won't find in other street machines. For example, the headlights are a hand-crafted custom utilizing Harley V-Rod headlight buckets. This also has a one-piece windshield, custom engine covers, and a cool eclectic cowl vent. The 18-inch Billet Specialties wheels really set the one apart as a true restomod build. And because all eyes will be on you wherever you arrive, the adjustable air ride suspension lets you dial in the ideal stance on demand.
With only about 7k miles on the car, the interior has a fresh look that lets you fully appreciate the full custom build. This was created by Steve Holcomb at Pro Auto, and the full light gray package inside looks like an extension of the exterior's silver. So your first impression of the interior is a thoughtful setup even before you see the detailed quality of the leather. There are all the best comfort features, including cold blowing air conditioning, power windows, and an AM/FM/CD stereo mounted in the headliner. There's plenty of comfort for everyone, but this one remains a driver's car at its heart. That's why your bucket seat power adjusts to the ideal position. The leather-wrapped Billet Specialties "Hole Shot" steering wheel is on a tilt steering column. And beyond that is a full set of Classic Instruments All-American Limited Edition gauges.
The engine bay is part of the full showcase, too. The inner walls and firewall are smooth, and the custom overs hide all the wires and hoses of this modern heart. It's a fuel-injected 5.7-liter LS1 V8 that was borrowed from the final-gen Pontiac Trans Am. It's supported by the right pieces, like a Street & Performance Billet front accessory belt system, a Walker trans cooler, an electric fan, and the battery relocated to the trunk. This V8 fires up with a terrific tune as ceramic-coated headers feed the glasspack style dual exhaust. Take some extra time to check out the super-clean undercarriage. Not only will it have you putting a mirror under this one at the shows, but it's also built with terrific components. This includes a strong Fatman chassis, a tubular A-arm front end, four-link rear, rack & pinion power steering, and Wilwood four-wheel disk brakes with drilled & slotted rotors. It makes for quite a solid custom, and so they also made sure it was easy to take everywhere. That's why you have a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive.
This '38 Chevy has been given all the best in thoughtful details over every inch of this build. So the only thing missing is you. Call today!!!
