Most convertibles simply have a presence that many people notice when the car’s top is lowered and it’s a nice day.  As rare as they are, four-door convertibles raise that allure even more.  This restored 1938 Chevrolet four-door Cabriolet, originally listed in July 2022 on Craigslist  in Sarasota, Florida, is said to be one of only two worldwide.  You’ll need to confirm with the seller whether that means only two exist today or, in fact, Chevrolet only produced two such models in 1936.

Currently offered for $55,000, Classic.com, the analytics and search engine for the collector car market, confirms the ask is slightly below the five-year rolling average of this guide’s summary for all body styles and trim levels of 1936 Chevrolets.  By clicking on the green dots in the graph below, you can navigate to each comparable car sold as a way to help you evaluate the price of the car featured here:

Chevrolet introduced the Master & Standard series of cars introduced for the 1933 model year. Originally, this new family of cars was launched as the Eagle and Mercury, but by the middle of 1933, Chevrolet renamed them, Master and Standard, respectively. Chevrolet offered this family of cars in sedan and coupe body styles powered by a 3.4L version of the Chevrolet’s well-established ‘Stovebolt Six,’ engine. The Master represented the top Chevrolet offering at the time, while the Standard served duty as the base offering.   For 1936, all Chevrolets took on an upgraded streamlined appearance as Chevrolet sought to take on a new and modern appearance called Art Deco, and Chevrolets shared bodies with the Pontiac Deluxe.

The US Auto Industry YouTube Channel features this 1936 Chevrolet video showing how the brand manufactured its vehicles in the 1930s:
