Dodge Series D8 1938 Description

A 1938 Dodge D8 was a car that dared to be different. With better integrated headlights than a Chevy and a more thoughtful sedan body design than a Ford, it has a distinctive appearance that's rare today. Now add into that the full hot rod custom treatment, and you've got the recipe for an attention-getter and award-winner.This 1938 Dodge D8 sedan is distinctive from the moment you catch a glimpse of the front end. After all, the paint has that perfect custom flame job up front that looks so hot, it almost looks like it's melting the deep cherry red off the front end. But more than just a cool presentation, take some time to appreciate the level of professionalism in the paint. The red has enough metallic elements and finished in clearcoat that its falls somewhere between a sparkling ruby and pure candy. Part of this exceptional presentation is also due to the all steel body is in such great condition, and the panels are so uniform that the light loves its gentle curves. The shine of the paint means there's less need for chrome, and so now any brightwork is very purposeful. You can see it in the major areas like the pristine bumpers front and rear, but it's also in the details, too. The chrome wings highlight the Dodge emblem up front, and the trim line that starts at the grille and runs until it meets the trunk line. And of course it wouldn't be a custom hot rod without a great set of wheels, and so the staggered size of these bright knock-off style units gives this Dodge an aggressive stance.Open any the of the four doors to see the custom interior. It starts with gray and red cloth on the seats, door panels, carpeting, and headliner. Not only do they look cool on the interior, but the colors seem to match the tones in the custom flames painted on the front fenders. The driver gets a sports steering wheel custom painted to match the exterior red and the dash. Ahead of that is a full set of VDO gauges. But this is a comfortable car for the passengers, too. Everyone will enjoy features like the AM/FM/CD stereo, power windows, and ice-cold air conditioning that's running modern R-134a for easy servicing. Since the interior and exterior are already show-ready, then you won't be surprised to see the great presentation of the small block under the hood. Chevy's 305 cubic-inch V8 is a great motor to have because there are plenty of parts available to customize it. That's why it not only looks bold and shiny in the engine bay, but it's also backed up by performance upgrades such as a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock performance intake. It fires up easily, and the dual exhaust lets out a growl that will make everyone take notice. But more than just power and sound, this one is a delight to drive, too. With a three-speed automatic transmission, independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes, this Dodge knows how to cruise in comfort.You're looking at a turnkey unique classic that's ready to do everything you want. It's the ideal custom car to drive all day Saturday and then take to the car show on Sunday. So call today before someone else snaps up you perfect weekend machine!
