This Chevrolet Business Coupe is offered for sale on the St. Louis, Missouri craigslist. First and foremost, it looks like the to-do list would be fairly short with this one.
Plus the color is unusual, looks like it could be original and somehow works well with the body style. As V8 engines came into vogue, it seemed the six cylinders were looked upon somewhat derisively, but in recent years they are finally beginning to regain the respect they deserve. The body looks great and so does the interior. The trunk treatment, although not original, is very tastefully done and is probably quite functional.
Well, all except for one thing. The wheels on this car are nearly a blight on humanity. They probably made the guys down at the discount boat trailer parts store very happy though. Since the rest of this car is so right on and wheels are the easiest mistake to correct, I still have to give this car a thumbs up.
My own preference for this particular car would probably be Coker wide whites and hubcaps. Everything else looks okay.
The seller is right on for throwing out that price. My 70 Chevy half ton jammed up once in awhile too on the one two shift even had to teach my wife how to unjam it by shaking the shirt rod under the hood never did get to the root cause.
As for the car what an old beauty but the wheels have got to go, maybe the seller still has the originals. Light colors of this era were rare and usually appeared only on convertibles. I would go with stock steelies and a standard dog dish hub cap, maybe, maybe not on the whitewalls. As a side note if the cover only covers over the lug nuts and wheel bearing hub it is a hub cap, if it covers the entire wheel it is a wheel cover. Not nit picking on terminology, just thought I would throw in some car trivia.
Not a bowtie guy, but this is a great vehicle. Would make a great hotrod! Why would you hot rod this beautifully restored complete car. There are plenty of incomplete unrestored cars out there that would make better blank canvases. She now has low profile wide-walls all the way around with chrome smoothies, looks much better. Thought about wide white walls but could not source them that were low and wide.Create an account Click here for recovery or learn your account.

Headlights slowly moved into the fenders, as seen on this Master DeLuxe. See more pictures of classic cars. There were three series this time. The Master 85, Chevy's price leader, retained the I-beam front axle and was characterized by a relatively spartan level of trim. Next up was the Master DeLuxe, featuring independent front suspension and better trim.
The third series, new this year, was the Special Deluxe. More sumptuously appointed than any previous Chevrolet, it was distinguished by stainless steel hood and beltline trim along with such amenities as dual wipers, dual air horns, a hour dashboard clock, and a deluxe steering wheel with horn ring.
Perhaps surprisingly, the newcomer proved to be, by a wide margin, Chevy's best-seller.
