Chevrolet introduced a new six-cylinder engine in 1929, featuring an overhead-valve cylinder head design and excellent cooling system. Over the years, the engine was continually improved resulting in extreme durability and earning the nickname 'Cast Iron Wonder.'

For 1935, Chevrolet streamlined its model lineup, focusing on the closed models. The more upscale Master Deluxe series models were given a new all-steel 'Turret Top' body and a slightly longer wheelbase with fashionable 'suicide'-style doors with rear-mounted hinges.

This example is a Two-Door Standard Sedan that has been given a complete nut and bolt restoration. The engine is a 206.8 cubic-inch overhead valve inline six-cylinder engine capable of producing 75 horsepower. There is a three-speed manual transmission with four-wheel mechanical drum brakes. It is paint in a tan body with a darker tan beltline and black fenders. There are painted steel wire wheels, whitewall tires, chrome plated bumpers and a rear-mounted spare tire. The interior features tan broadcloth upholster and wood grain finish.

In 2009, this car was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $28,000-$35,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $17,050, including buyer's premium.
