1939 Chevrolet Master 85
I love spotting these oldsters and just happened to spot this driving by A & W. It didn't take me long to turn around and take some photos for all you Antique car lovers out there. My personal opinion is that "back in the day", these people really knew something about designing cars. It seems today they all look alike with their slopped backs, darkened windows and ugly headlights (again, just my opinion).
There were essentially two vehicles, the 1939 Chevrolet Master 85 and the Master Deluxe. Both cars had the same body dies as the earlier models, but they were reworked just enough to give them a fresh look. These later models received a new front clip that gave them a distinct resemblance to the contemporary Cadillac. Extra passengers in the sport coupe sat in the rumble seat. The rumble seat became increasingly unpopular and was dropped from production during the model change year. When I look at these olde beauties, I think a drive in the "rumble Seat" would have been quite an adventure, but then weather elements would have to be in my favour too. In that respect, I can see why the popularity dropped off.
