Description

1936 brought major styling changes to the Chevrolet Motor Division. The windshield was now V shaped, the radiator cap was hidden under the hood, the fenders were more rounded and added was a waterfall grille; steel-spoked wheels were standard and wire wheels were optional. The frame was changed from an X design to a lighter and stronger box-girder design. The wheels on both series were 17", and an optional Knee-Action suspension was popular, but only offered on the Master series. Gone were the numerous small gauges set into the instrument panel and new were two larger tan-colored instrument clusters that included the basic information for engine operation. The master series was stretched by 2" and now had a new steel turret top replacing the old-fashioned fabric roof. The senior series was re-named and called the Master Deluxe, carrying a 113" wheelbase. The Town and Sport sedan now had a built-in trunk which was a convenient option. Another major change was the addition of hydraulic brakes added to both Chevrolet series.

 

Prices for the new models ranged from $495.00 to $665.00 depending on series and options offered. Chevrolet again took first place in sales from Ford by posting a 70% increase in sales over their 1935 models.
