Oh that may be a problem , I got it apart and there are two different frames , one with odd front suspension and one with leaf springs.it dose have the cowl tag , it is also made in Canada and I don’t think we had master or standard actually model names in those years here.

It's not just model names, It''s a whole different car. I do not recall the details. The engine is about the same, but not much else. The wheelbase could be a clue.

 

The funny front suspension is a Master for sure. Masters could be had with a straight axle, but they didn't build many that way.

GM Canada had a different coding system to GM USA, but possible to correlate

1936 standard 109"

1936 master 113"

The 1936 Master Deluxe was the only coupe model with a rumble seat in 1936 as far as US production goes. It also was the only 3 window coupe. The Standard and Master business coupes were 5 window.
The Standard series has two dials on the instrument panel and the Master has 3. The Standard has 5 stud wheels and the Master 6.
There were less than 11,000 rumble seat coupes made and almost 1,000,000 1936 cars produced.
The info. I have shows just the Master rumble seat coupe was made in Canada but it was available in the "regular" and Special Master series. There should be a plate on the firewall. The reg. would be a model 1087 and the Special a model 2057.

I also got another odd model chev 1928 roadster no rumble seat few years ago (that I actually found when I was 10 years old and took years to buy)and have been trying to swap out better parts that I find here and there on farms , but this car seems to be wider than the say 4 dr bathtub style convertible .i got a real nice complete windshield frame off a 4 dr convertible and it’s a few inches narrower than the roadster needs, also found a better trunk lid and it also seems too tall of a curve to fit.

This is a great forum, but you may want to also ask your questions on the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America (VCCA) forum in the 1933 - 1936 section.
