12 Cars of Christmas – #6 CRUZN38
Editor’s Note: We’re getting into the Holiday Spirit this year! Sometimes the littlest things can bring a big smile to your face, and that’s exactly where this 12 Cars of Christmas idea came from. I was scrolling through some of my favorite social media outlets and Christmas-inspired hot rods kept popping up in my feed. I decided to reach out to some of these owners, do a little investigating on my own, and bring you (in no specific order) 12 Cool Cars that really took the holiday festivities to another level!
12 Cars of Christmas – #6
Like hand-written letters, or receiving print magazines, Christmas Cards bring a warm feeling of nostalgia to your mailbox every December. That’s what Darryl and Julie Sandhurst delivered this year wishing their friends and family a Merry Christmas with a Christmas Card featuring their 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe Coupe. The High Octane Red paint that adorns their ’38 Chevy offered a perfect opportunity to mix in some green and white from the snow-capped trees to combine the colors of Christmas for a festive scene.
A little more on the Sandhurst’s ’38 Chevy: first off, it’s a driver! The rear fenders were widened three inches, the rear quarter windows were filled, drip rails removed, and the door handles shaved. Power comes from a GM350 topped with a Holley Sniper EFI unit and is backed by a 700R4 transmission. A 12-bolt posi rear end rides out back with a Heidts Mustang II setup up front. Disc brakes are on all four corners and the Foose Knuckle wheels are wrapped with BFGoodrich tires. Dakota Digital gauges and a Vintage Air unit highlight the interior. Expert Auto Body and Restoration handled the restoration and fab, J&S Upholstery finished the interior needs, and John’s Automotive did the mechanical and engine work.
