Rally Cars for sale

Rally Preparation Services is pleased to offer for sale this beautifully presented 1939 Chevrolet Master Coupe classic car for sale, currently located in the U.S.A. This long-distance endurance rally car is a proven turn key ready to go package for anybody who wants to go endurance rallying either as a novice or experienced competitor looking for a win.

 

The 1939 Chevrolet Coupe was the most successful rally car in period (for “rally” read American dirt-road racer) and campaigned most famously by Juan Manuel Fangio. The Coupe was available with three alternative front suspension configurations; A fully independent but fragile coil sprung axle, a curious knee action unit and Fangio’s preferred bullet-proof leaf spring version.

Moving forward to the current day the Chevrolet Coupe continues to be the weapon of choice on long distance rallies with success on the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge.

 

This car was commissioned by its present owner to compete in the Vintage Cape Horn Rally in 2013. With a very methodical build the car only needed some minor repairs to the front suspension halfway through the event, other than that the car ran perfectly from start to finish. The owner is reported to have said on the event: “All we did was pour gas into it ….and that was done by an attendant”.  Regretfully, after a change of plans the car has not been used since, and hence why the car is now up for sale.

 

Although the car is registered and located in the U.S.A. Rally Preparation Services can arrange shipping anywhere in the world. If the car is to be kept in the UK, RPS can organise importation, registration in the UK, storage and ongoing maintenance. Rally Preparation Services is world renowned for the preparation of pre-war American cars for Endurance rallying.

All viewings and test drives are clearly by appointment. All enquiries please to Martin on martin@rpscvm.com or telephone +44 (0)1993 358009.
