1939 Chevrolet Master 85
 
An attractive fully restored example of the breed
216 cid I-6 engine
3-speed manual transmission  
Manufactured from 1933 to 1942, Chevrolet’s Master Series was an aspirational model for most customers. The Master 85 was the base model for 1939, which introduced new art deco styling that was evocative of the far more expensive Cadillac. The most important new feature was a coil spring and wishbone suspension, which replaced the troublesome knee-action layout used previously. Despite the affordable purchase price, the Model 85 retained many features from the previous De Luxe model and is valued today for its unmistakable 1930s appearance and impeccable ride quality.  
The Motorcar Offered   This attractive example is the recipient of a complete restoration that has resulted in a car that drives as good as it looks. The 206 cid inline six-cylinder engine runs smoothly and propels the car nicely down the road. Larger rolling stock on custom wheels improve the handling and ride quality immeasurably, making this an outstanding oldie to drive to local shows and cruise-in events.  
Estimate:  $23,000-25,000
