1940 Chevrolet Other Deluxe Supercharged

This 1940 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Supercharged is a very cool blending of vintage and new. After all, the first impression is a classic body with a modern presentation. But as you dig deeper, you find distinctive supercharged V8 power. And everything from the overdrive transmission to the suspension was beefed up to handle this street-eating power.

Sinisterly dark and seriously custom: that's the first impression this Chevy makes. With the expertly deleted bumpers and the custom rake of the chopped windshield, this one takes 1940s steel and makes is look like a modern speed machine. Of course, it also helps that there is a modern deep purple paint. It has the right amount of gloss to really show off the curves of the fenders and the classic trunk lid. The dark paint also instantly draws extra attention to the contrasting bright pieces, like the distinct grille, clear headlights, and the large Torq Thrust wheels. But those who are really paying attention will be pointing out details like the supercharger peeking out from the side of the hood and the nicely integrated side exhaust tips. So this Chevrolet isn't timid about its power, but it does a good job of integrating it.

Door poppers get you into the interior, and your first impression may just be of a well-restored classic setup. After all, you have two classic-style wide benches covered in a comfy tweed cloth. But then you slip behind the wheel. There's a sports steering wheel on a tilt column (power steering) and a floor-mounted Lokar shifter. Plus, the dash is dominated by a dozen professional-grade AutoMeter Sport-Comp gauges. So while this one has an AM/FM/CD stereo upgrade for driving tunes, you already know your real favorite soundtrack begins under the hood.

The engine bay is a bright setup brimming with power. This is a 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 with go-fast goodies like a Holley double-pumper 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, and headers feeding those growling side pipes. And while that's already plenty of power to move most of us down the road, this special coupe has a Vortech supercharger added on top! There are also nice supporting pieces, like a Pertronix ignition, dual alternators, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. The full package is rated at about 500 horsepower at the rear wheels, and so the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission was built to handle up to 600 hp. And this isn't the car's only beefy component. The undercarriage photos will show you the strong Currie 9-inch rear. Plus, while you're down there, check out the Mustang II-style tubular arm front suspension by Chassis Engineering, the four-link rear w/adjustable coilovers by Competition Engineering, and four-wheel disc brakes.

Complete with build receipts and restoration photos, this is a serious speed machine done to an awesome level. You know you don't want to miss this supercharged Chevy. Call today!!!
