26 HP, 171 cid, Overhead Valve In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 1427865 While Ford's Model T might have been the best selling car in the world, a strong contender was coming up that offered a who lot more for not that much more money. Chevrolet offered as standard equipment such "extras" found on other cars as electric horn, speedometer, ammeter, oil pressure gauge, lighted dashboard, an ignition theft lock and for closed cars, window regulators, outside visor, plate glass and door locks. This wonderful example of Chevrolet superior automobile is fitted with its original engine with the exposed push-rods, all of the factory equipment, plus whitewall tires and running board mounted cast aluminum step-plates from the original dealership. It appears to have been given a cosmetic restoration a number of years ago but displays well with it black exterior finish and gray-stripe cloth seats. As a bonus, two period aftermarket items are included such as a genuine Clymer Spot light mounted in the windshield, and an original Chevrolet logo Moto Meter radiator ornament. Chevrolet's didn't survive in the same numbers of the rival Model T, but those that have are always welcomed at vintage car events wherever you go in the world, and with a little care and patience, this car will take you there in style.
