A slick build from every angle, this 1935 Chevrolet 3-window coupe is nothing but bright red, chrome, and leather over every inch even the undercarriage! But while you’re going to be impressed with the award-worthy details, don’t forget to enjoy the big block power and fully independent sports suspension. That’s why this is an all-around, cut-above custom build.
This machine is truly red hot, that’s why it’s painted an unbeatable shade of Torch Red. In fact, the paint is already so slick and shiny, the coupe can forgo some chrome in the usual places with its shaved door handles, painted headlight surrounds, and a bumper delete that lets you see the flowing lines of the quality Outlaw body. Plus, the clean design makes the brightwork on the billet grille, sport mirrors, and Boyd Custom wheels really standout. And everyone will pick up on that cool swan leading the way. This follows the best hot rod qualities, including chopping inches out of the height, forward leaning stance with the big rear tires, and flowing fenders to fit the new performance image. But the coolest custom touch to this Chevy is unquestionably the custom painted front. Cleared-over flames always look terrific on a well-built machine, but this one takes it to a new level with graphics of other iconic hot rods. It reminds us all that this Chevy belongs in elite circles.
When you pop the remote door openers, you’re treated to a world of custom touches. It starts with a pair of tan leather bucket seats that have modern bolstering for all-day comfort. The color of the seats nicely coordinates with the door panels, dash, headliner, and carpeting for a very thoughtful and uniform atmosphere. This one has all the right features you could want, including a full Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo system, tilt wheel, power locks, power windows, power steering, three-speed automatic transmission, and provisions for air conditioning. When you slip behind the leather-wrapped Lecarra steering wheel, grab the chrome floor shifter, and gaze at the full VDO gauge package, this all instantly tells your senses to get ready for some horsepower.
With the car that’s so nicely customized inside and out, you know there is going to be a great engine bay to show off, too. That’s why this one is always on display for the world to see. With the valve covers, air toppers, alternator, brackets, pulleys, and so much more shining so brightly, we dare you to find another component that can be polished. And when you look beyond the flash, you’re going to see the serious substance of a 454 cubic-inch V8. More than just big block muscle, this has been further enhanced with dual four-barrel carburetors, a hi-rise performance intake, MSD ignition, and Patriot Tight Tuck headers. So you know this one is bringing serious power to the streets, and its growl lets everyone know it. But don’t just listen to the dual exhaust, follow its path in the undercarriage photos. There you’ll see that this one impresses in a place where few people see. After all, it’s not only amazing to have a fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes, but to also have it all polished so nicely reminds you why this has already won Best-in-Show awards.
When someone puts this much time, effort, and money into a build, you know it can take home the trophies. But the first step to winning awards this weekend is calling us today!
