Chevrolet Standard Coupe
For 1934, horizontal streamlined ribs on the sides of a longer hood were the most obvious visual differences distinguishing the Standard from the Master series on a Chevrolet. Finished in the correct Code 163 Admiral Blue, this is one of the best California black plate examples to be found. Fine, pale yellow pinstripes flow over the body and match the wire wheels. The exterior trim and brightwork is above par, as is the correct mohair-type cloth material that has been utilized throughout the very clean interior, in addition to quality gauges and the wood grained dash and window sills. Lifting the hood panels reveals a clean drivetrain with modern spark plug wires. The doors shut like new, and the undercarriage is well restored. It is a lovely automobile that is dressed to impress.
