Classic Car For Sale | 1939 Chevrolet Long Distance Classic Rally Car | Price £75,000

 Price £75,000

Rally Preparation Services is excited to offer for sale this right hand drive 1939 Chevrolet Super De-luxe Coupe.

Chevrolet and Ford battled furiously for market share in the ‘30s (and in fact ever since). The Coupe with only two doors, sometimes with only two seats and correspondingly lower price would be the car of choice for the travelling salesman. Big sales numbers made the Coupes important models for all the manufacturers and new improvements were introduced every year. For 1939, Chevrolet revised the front grille with a more secure radiator fixing, re-positioned the head lamps on to the front wings and a change to the body to provide a slightly larger rear cabin. Depending on the specification chosen a front beam axle or a “knee action” front joint was available but of course the beam axle is the better bet for rallying. The ubiquitous Stovebolt six cylinder was unchanged, so to combat the V8 of arch-rival Ford, Chevrolet adopted the tag line “A six for the price of a four”.

This car was commissioned by its current owner for build in Singapore with very many of the parts and much assistance across its build supplied by Rally Preparation Services. The car is now registered in the UK having been registered by us for the current owner – another service we offer. With a lot of the same specification as one of our “Chevrolet Fangio” versions, this Chevrolet retains its original wings, underfloor exhaust and even chrome bumpers as a choice across the build. The car has now successfully completed and finished three longer distance rallies – the 2018 Road to Saigon, followed by the 2019 Pyrenees 1000 and most recently the 2019 Adriatic Adventure. Rally Preparation Services are world renowned for the build, rally preparation and maintenance of pre-war American rally cars.

The car is currently residing at RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services.
