1938 Chevy sedanCreamsicle

Often there is a “defining element” that catches your eye when you first see a car. It might be the styling, custom body work, flames or unique graphics, or it might be the paint itself. Although there is much about Dave and Brenda’s ‘38 Chevy two-door sedan that is noteworthy, the paint definitely is eye-catching. The color is listed in the book as “Creamsicle,” an apt name.

Information about the 38 ChevyFor those not familiar with the orange Creamsicle, it is a Popsicle with a vanilla ice cream center which gives it a distinctive “creamy” color that is caught very well in Dave’s Chevy. When he saw it at the Roamin Angel’s car show three years ago, it caught his eye and it was for sale. The previous owner was building another car and his wife said one of them had to go. The rest, as they say, is history. It was chopped 2 ½ inches and all the chrome was shaved (removed and filled), giving it a sleek look. It had a slightly punched-out Chevy 350 CID engine and a Turbo 350 auto trans that turned a nine-inch Ford rear end. The front suspension had been replaced with a Camaro one with disc brakes. Dave has done some minor changes since getting it, like redoing the upholstery and adding pin striping, but has had a trouble-free ride for trips with fellow Roamin Angels to places like Coeur d’Alene, ID, and Scottsdale, AZ. Although he is now building another car, Dave and Brenda plan to keep this Creamsicle as well. This one doesn’t melt.
