Dear Mr Kapur: Your Chevy appears is reasonably good shape for its age!
It is indeed 1936 Chevrolet. These were made as Standard & Master , difference being in trim, yours being standard. The master had a outside trunk.
Six cylinder, 79 hp engine was standard. As was common in those times, it was desirable to have two spare wheels ( Complete with tires) hence the term dual cowl. Your Chevy is right hand drive, which means it was built for India and imported fully assembled.
This model (minus the protruding trunk) is rare. From the looks, you have the correct 17inch rims but the tires (?), they are undersized.
The six cylinder engine was a real work horse and saw many decades of service in Chevvies even as recently as the fifties ( of course with improvements). As I was growing up in north India, Chevvies were a common site hence my interest in them. Having moved to the States, I have owned at least ten GM cars, five being Chevvies of different years.
If you Google 36 Chevy master, a whole slew of info & pictures are available.
Good luck with your restoration project.
