Three Window Barn Find: 1935 Chevrolet Coupe

1935 Chevrolet Coupe

At one time South Dakota was the place to go to find classics. Every once in a while I will still see a car advertised as one of those good South Dakota finds. I’ve spent a lot of time in South Dakota and never really understood why that was such a popular marketing technique, all the cars I’ve ever found over there were super rusty. That being said, here we have one of those South Dakota finds! It’s a 1935 Chevrolet three window coupe that hasn’t already been turned into a hot rod. I probably don’t need to say this, but it has rust issues. After being found in this barn, it was pulled out and shipped to Wisconsin. Three window coupes are pretty hard to come by these days and I’m sure someone would love to have it to restore or hot rod. You can find this SD Chevy here on eBay in Appleton, Wisconsin with a current bid of $6,800. So what would you do with it? Would you restore it or hot rod it?

    I see only surface rust.

    Love the vintage AC!

      If the car was a life time resident of South Dakota that fan mounted on the steering column was a lot more likely an attempt to keep the inside of the windshield from icing over in the winter than it was to cool the passengers in the summer…

    Not that I’m anti hot rod, not at all. But glass bodies are made just for that and there simply can’t be many 80+ year old steel bodies of anything left.

    Looks like a genuine Stovebolt (pre-’37 motor). This is a MUST restoration, not a hot rod. When they’re this complete, they’re an artifact and should be treated as such…

    Restoration or Hotrod-the only determining factor is the person spending the money

    So I guess whoever is the winning bidder will take possession of it still parked in that small storage space. C’mon, what did the seller do ship the container with the car still in it back to Wisconsin? Seller, please post some relevant pictures that help a prospective bidder/buyer know what in the heck they’re in for once they get going on the project.

    Definitely restorable. Just surface rust shown, still wondering about floors.
