In addition to delivering legendary durability and efficiency, Chevrolet’s mid-1930s models featured sleek, Art Deco-influenced bodylines that stand today among the finest designs ever conceived. While it is difficult to improve upon the original GM design, the designers and builders of this incredible ’35 Chevy 3-Window coupe did just that – with multiple show-winning results and a recent Street Roddder magazine cover to its credit.

Beginning as a 56,000-mile original car located in California, the Chevy received a full-on restoration, customization, and top-level, show-quality build performed by the pros at Showtime Customs and Hot Rods & Hobbies. The original frame was set aside in favor of a new and modern 116-inch wheelbase unit that was pinched two inches at the back and fitted with beautifully finished, polished, and plated underpinnings including Kugel Komponents independent front and rear suspension systems, Total Cost Involved Engineering coilover shocks, and Wilwood calipers and rotors. A Street & Performance-tuned and incredibly detailed GM LS3 V-8 engine, mated to a GM 4L65E automatic transmission and Havasu Speed driveshaft, delivers outstanding power and performance. Engine cooling is provided by an all-aluminum radiator from Mattson’s and spent gases are removed by a two-inch exhaust system fabricated by Havasu Speed utilizing Flowmaster Hushpower mufflers.

The factory steel ’35 Chevy body was subtly customized by master metalsmith Marcel De Ley. Tweaks include a wedge chop running from two inches up front to 2 1/2 inches at the rear, widened running boards, bobbed rear fenders, narrowing of the grille shell, and a wedge cut of the steel Rootlieb hood. Further bodywork and finishing was done at Show Time Customs and Scott at Hot Rods and Hobbies applied the stunning PPG Lamborghini Yellow paint. Schott Americana billet wheels, 7×17 front and 10×20 rear, complete the Chevy’s exterior presence. Finishing touches include headlights by Steve’s Auto Restorations, Lokar taillights, and brightwork by Clayton Engineering. The interior work is consistent with the rest of the car, including the striking factory dash, Classic Instrument gauges, Vintage Air, a floor shifter and center console, recently updated leather upholstery, and more.

The cover car and the subject of a four-page feature article in the September 2014 issue of Street Rodder magazine, this outstanding ’35 Chevy has also garnered many top-level show awards following completion of the build. Among them are:

  • 2014 Del Mar Goodguys d’Elegance, Top 5 Runner Up
  • Goodguys PPG Paint Pick, Scottsdale AZ
  • Pismo Beach Platinum
  • SuperNationals Sweepstakes Rod
  • Grand National Roadster Show 1st Place Class Award
  • Cruising for a Cure Best Outstanding Chevrolet
  • SuperNationals Best in Class, Outstanding Paint
  • Route 66 Rockin’ Rods Weekend – Best of Show

Simply put, if you are looking for one of the finest and best-equipped hot rods combining the today’s performance engineering and build quality with classic Chevy style, this show winning magazine-featured ’35 Chevy truly ticks all the boxes!
