50 HP, 194 cid, Overhead Valve In-Line 6-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission Chassis No. 569137; Engine No. 2318874; Body No. 4854 By 1931, Chevrolet was taking a sales lead against all competition including the Ford Model A. With its advanced in-line six, better brakes and electrical systems and smart styling there was no shame in owning a Chevy. General Motors had established itself not only in the USA, but also in Canada, where this smart Two Door sedan, often referred to as a "coach", was produced. Given a high quality restoration a number of years ago, this is a rather pure-stock car finished in a medium tan with gloss black fenders and wire-spoke wheels in a light yellow on which are mounted a fairly fresh looking set of wide whitewall tires. Extras found on this car include a chrome grille guard, a large trunk mounted to the rear fold-down rack, side-mount spare tires and rear view mirrors attached to the doors. The interior of this car is fitted with a full complement of factory gauges and a period hot-water heater mounted under the dash. Covered in brown mohair are the two front bucket-type front seats which can be raised to allow passengers access to the rear seat. One of the most interesting items we spotted on this car is the gear-shift knob which appears to be a clear plastic orb with a vintage miniature Chevrolet grille badge placed inside on a green base. As with a number of cars in the collection, this vintage Chevy looks like it is a complete vehicle that needs just a bit of TLC to make it road-worthy. This is a very unique opportunity to own a very important piece of automotive history.
