Great looking Chevy! Congrats and welcome to the Bowtie group!
answers regarding mechanical stock problems , you should go to VCCA CHAT and post in the 1933--1936 section.
Nice lookin car!
I very much agree with your plan. There are plenty of roads here in the west where that thing would be a lot of fun to drive.
I keep coming back to check out your car Lou ,
It really is nice , wouldn't change a thing A+
Do you guys know if the majority of a 1933 5 window wood kit would fit my 33 4 door 7 window car? I know obviously I’d be short the rear doors pieces but wondering if the rest of the kit would fit for the most part.
Wow, what a great body, I'm onboard. This is a 35 Standard frame, 35 Master is different with 'K' rather than 'X' member. 34 Standard has parallel ladder frame with no 'X' member.

Pensive Scribe pretty cool 29 Chevy truck build! I just found this 1929 Chevrolet AC International Blue Pickup Truck 194ci l6 Manual on Ebay here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1929-AC-International/143107995560
Just a thought that maybe it would help you with some ideas on your build!
Here is a 1934 Chevy Master with the K frame posted for sale on Hemming's online, plus a 1934 Chevy Frame drawings! Rory
Thanks For The Tip And It Is Appreciated...Love Those Chevy Coupes...
Nice find RoarsRods. I'll be doing some referring back to that one a few more times for sure. Thanks.
The cowl and possibly the front doors the wood will fit , pretty sure the 5 window coupe and 4 dr share the front doors . Main sills in the floor should be the same or at least very similar .
But that is about it .
I just bought a 34 Master coupe with pretty decent metal front fenders and nice fiberglass rear fenders. I'm not going to be running any fenders at all. I'd trade it all for a usable 34 master grill surround.
Keep watching ebay , sooner or later they show up, 1934 CHEVROLET MASTER ONLY. Expect to pay $200---500 and up for a nice one just needing replating only. the master outsold the standard 7---1 so you have a good chance of finding one.
Who has the dim for the side rear glass for 35 Standard sedan 2dr.Seems mine is to short to reach the felt from frt to back.Had them cut at Vintage Glass a few yrs ago.About 1/2 to 5/8 short after install window channel.Thanks for help.Frt windows were fine ut these rear side are not
I dont think you will find a grille for 2 to 500.00 bucks these days , I have watched the chrome suround go for almost that much ,
500 and up Im sure !!!
Flatmotor, I measured front to rear outside edges at centerline at 23 1/8" and
Top outside edge to bottom flat part of window channel at centerline at 14 7/8"
Hope that helps.
Bowtie the one I have on the 1/4 window measures 30 7/8 but the inside to inside the channel felt is about 31 1/4 or so.Will call Vintage glass today and talk to them.Thanks
Can I join your splinter group too?
I own a 34 Master project car that needs heaps of loving. Have a mate (previous owner of the car) whose way clever and will sort my mechanical, engineering, panelwork and auto electrics. My job really is to figure what I want at the end, pass on the plan, buy the parts and fund everything.
Guards are pretty stuffed, so I figured I would get the chassis sitting low and run it fenderless, as Im not a fan of fenderless with a huge gap between bottom chassis rail and the road
Have 9 doors but only a few hinges so figured it could evolve into a two door sedan
Decided a rear door is necessary on a sedan delivery so one got cut out last week. Looks good too
Decided that a fenderless hot rod needs a Henry V8 axle setup, rather than a 34 Chev IFS
Used a 32 front cross member and split wishbones
Got some 15*5 Halibrand copies for the front and 15*10 copies for the rear. BFG 285/75/15s are just under 31 tall so I can have a hot rod rake on it.
So theres the start point and theres the HAMB photoshop version of how the finished car should sit. .
Just saw a post in the VCCA CHAT that was posted by an employee of LEBARON BONNEY, that they have gone out of business owing a lot of unfilled but paid for orders.
Looks like a really cool build. The photoshop version looks great.
Although it was innovative for 1934, the 1934 IFS is rather primitive. The original Knee-Action IFS on my 34 Master was replaced with a axle and springs from a 50 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup.
So let us understand what you want to do to your 1934 Chevrolet master 4 door sedan. You want to convert a 4 door to a 2 door sedan somehow. You also want to open up the rear panel and convert that to a sedan delivery door. Dumpster the fenders and running boards and go high boy.
INTERESTING AND FANTASTIC UNDERTAKING. Theres a TV show on DISCOVERY channel called Bad Chad Customs. You might get some inspiration from his shows. Hope you won the NZ lottery.
heres a 1932 ford 4 door sedan that's made into a high boy.....outstanding great 8 contender. Has quarter elliptic springs front and rear, Y block ford with F I.
Flatmotor, my extreme apologies!!! The last thing I want to do is provide disinformation. I've got a couple cars apart in the garage and some non-labeled glass was nearest the '35 Chevy 2dr and I just assumed it was the '35 glass. I do have the original '35 glass, although I apparently will have to go through some stuff and identify it, shud you still need those dimensions.
Bowtie made another pattern and the glass they cut seems to be 5/16 short frt to rear to stay in the channel felt.Sent the new pattern back to Vintage yesterday and they will check there measurment with my pattern The quarter glass on my car is 31 1/8-1/4 but the glass I got was 30 7/8.It is a 2dr sedan Standard.Thanks for help but if you have that glass what is the size.
Gassertodd Just had seen a 1935 Chevrolet Sedan HotRod on Ebay listed to somewhat very similar to your new build! Rory Here is the link: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1935-Sedan-HotRod/113695376063?hash=item1a78c5c2bf:g:9CoAAOSwtpFclecv
Flatmotor40 just a thought you can make your new glass pattern out of cardboard to fit perfectly and then transfer it over to the new glass piece! That is how I did it with all of my glass on my 36 Ford 3 window coupe! Rory
My 1935 Chevy Standard Three Window Coupe Made It Home This Week And Thanks For The Support And Advice From This Great Group...
Roarsrod that is what I did but the people at Vintage Glass has the org patterns so I went with them since I had no glass to start with but the 1/4 were 5/16 short but the frt door and vent glass were perfect,so I sent them a pattern yesterday and they will check the pattern they have no file not too many 35 Chevy out there as they are Fords.Will get it fixed this week hope but a long way from finishing.Not in no big hurry.Thanks
You were correct. I bought one and it was more than $500 but it looks good and I'm happy. Thanks!
