1939 Chevrolet 4 Door Master 85

Built by GM February of 1939.  Originally had 216 cu. in. 6 cylinder in line OHV engine, 3 speed manual transmission and hydraulic brakes.  No power options, not even a Radio.  Fresh air, compliments of Cowl Vent ! The summer of 1998, she looked a lot like this... 1939 Chevy Master 85 4 door Found at  the 1998 Louisville Street Rod Nationals, 15,000 cars registered in one big beauty pageant.  She's coming home with us, we'll call her SADIE. Sadie came modified with the installation of a 3.8 liter Buick V-6, Turbo 350 Automatic Transmission, and a Buick Rear Axle.  The car had been fitted with Power Disc Brakes, Independent Front Suspension, Air Conditioning, Cruise Control and FM Cassette Stereo. This car had no prior body damage, no rust, and was 100% original as far as the coachwork goes.  The interior sported a GM tilt column from a 1977 Olds Cutlass and the original seats recovered. Yes, it is now 4 years later, but as all Street Rodders know, there were other projects before SADIE.  Got to get in line at the Memmolo Garage.
