1237 Central Park Drive, OFallon , IL 62269 View Map


For sale in our Nashville showroom is a stunning example of a very rare 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe convertible. A very limited production and a very low survival rate have propelled this 1940 Chevy for sale to the pinnacle of collectability. Extensive research has revealed this to be only one of two 1940 Chevrolet Special Deluxe Convertibles advertised for sale in North America. A true survivor of the pre war era, this Special Deluxe for sale offers a host of modern upgrades and conveniences that make this car truly one of a kind. This old school beauty hosts a 350 CID power house with a stated horsepower rating of 430 which would make any old school cruiser jealous. The power plant is married to an Edelbrock intake, three Rochester two barrel carburetors, and Mallory headers, sparked by an MSD ignition box all providing proven and dependable F.U.N. With lots of chrome and steel braided hoses, this Chevy rocket for sale left 1940 way in the past. While making incredible power, a smooth comfortable ride was certainly not ignored. Equipped with front air ride and the bullet proof 700R4 four speed automatic transmission, this Convertible cruiser for sale will glide down the road like a song in the wind and stop on a dime with polished Willwood brakes. Now, while you are gliding down the road on your Halibrand Speedway wheels wrapped with radial tires like a song in the wind and the wind in your hair, let me sing the praises of this beautiful Convertible for sale. Bathed in a brilliant metallic green complemented with the original chrome grill and matching chrome trim this beautiful and rare Special Deluxe has retained all the style and grace of a bygone time with just a few subtle enhancements. With all steel Smoothie running boards and a complementing tan power convertible top this Chevy is truly elegance and power in motion. With all that said you canâ??t just stand out there and stare at it, get in it. Once you step in and sit down you are engulfed with the marriage of old and new. The modern conveniences of power front bucket seats dressed in a gorgeous tan tweed cloth with matching rear seat and thick pile carpets far exceed the comfort levels of 1940. The interior is further enhanced by a custom painted dash with the same color as the exterior detailed with custom pin striping and a gauge cluster by Classic Gauges. Sitting behind the wheel, which is a wood grain â??Banjoâ? style fitted onto a modern Ididit steering column and conveniences such as vintage air, power steering and power brakes, this rare 1940 Convertible is truly ready to Show or Go. Donâ??t miss this opportunity of a lifetime to own a rare and classic piece of history.
