Wayne MacIsaac’s 1938 Chevy Master Deluxe

Pics are of my 1938 Chevrolet Master Deluxe. I traded a 1930 Model A hotrod for the Chevy in 1999. At that time the car was in black primer. I had the car painted pearl white along with purple flames on the hood.
About 12 yrs later as I was putting the car away for the winter I scraped one fender. At that point I decided it was time for a different color. Over the course of that winter I was trying to decide a new color.
Since I had been in the US Army for 3 years, I decided to have her car painted OD green with a matte finish to make it a tribute to an Army staff car. I decorated the inside with many Army items such as a mess-kit, helmet, etc…I even used 2 of my original fatigue shirts as front seat covers.
People seem to enjoy the theme at car cruises…It currently has a small block chevy motor (305) with a 200r4 automatic tranny, mustang II type front suspension with rack/pinion steering, later (80,s) chevy 10 bolt rear end…
