If you like your Hotrods with beautiful bright red paint, an aggressive stance, and you like to be able to drive them anytime, anywhere with comfort and reliability, well then, take a good hard look at this
beautiful 1940 Chevrolet Business coupe. The business part of a business coupe if you don't know,
means that rather than a back seat, you had an area to store your catalogs, and/or wares you were selling.
Of course, that was in 1940, and today the traveling salesman has a different approach. Of course, so do we when it comes to taking a car that was designed for the salesman, and turning it into a super cool, easy to drive Hotrod.
That is exactly the case with this particular coupe, as it now combines all of the desirable traits we expect in a comfortable Hotrod that retains the aura of the past.
Very vibrant paint with a subtle contrasting tone on the trim make this clean, uncluttered, classic car stand out from the rest.
The smooth running 350 with the 3 speed automatic transmission means you have proven reliability, and ease of operation.
Comfortable, fresh bucket seat interior finished off in a soft sculpted gray color combo surrounded with easy to read gauges and controls. Power steering and power front disc brakes, and updated independent suspension make for an always pleasure-to-drive classic!
This '40 drives so nice down the road, you'll never want to get out of it. Drive it to a car show, take it on a road trip, park it outside the restaurant and look at it while having dinner...This is a Hotrod for all occasions.
