While Ford''s V8 stole the spotlight in 1932, Chevrolet was pouring on the steam by building an upscale car that''s perfectly embodied by this award-winning Confederate cabriolet. Polished and carrying the look of a much bigger, more impressive car, the Chevrolet looks and acts like it''s in a separate class altogether-which maybe it is. This car won all the big awards when it was finished in 2006, and since then it''s been driven a bit, but nothing diminishes the handsome good looks of the 1932 Chevrolet. Beautifully styled with upscale touches like the two-bar headlight support, fluted fenders, and chrome hood doors, it looks a lot like its bigger, more expensive cousins over at Buick and Cadillac. The three-tone paint captures the fun and upscale attitude that Chevy was trying to emulate, and even though it''s been a few years since it won all its awards, it still looks fantastic. Pinstripes highlight the wonderful design elements on the leading and trailing edges of the fenders and even utilitarian parts like the rumble seat steps and horns became beautiful styling elements on the Chevy. And as a former show-winner, you know the chrome is excellent, with plenty of it on the grille, bumpers, and even the lovely little cowl lights and landau bars on the top. Unlike the Ford, this Chevy looks nothing like a bargain price. Simple brown leather makes up the interior of this Chevy, but as a cabriolet with roll-up windows instead of an open roadster, it has a few upscale design details. Note the color-matched dashboard, the beautiful door panels with map pockets, and a beautiful engine-turned instrument panel with a full complement of gauges to monitor the engine. An accessory temperature gauge has been mounted under the dash, but it is discreetly hidden and doesn''t detract from the overall presentation at all. Low-mounted windshield wipers are still vacuum powered, neatly installed on the woodgrained garnish molding below the chrome windshield. The seats, including the rumble seat in back, remain in excellent condition with minimal signs of use and that big steering wheel gives fingertip control without the need for power steering. The tan canvas top folds easily and has an opening rear window so that you can converse with back-seat passengers without putting the top down. The genesis of Chevy''s famous "Stovebolt" six can be found here. While Ford was building the rugged but basic 4-cylinder Model A, this silky smooth inline six with overhead valves was powering the Chevy competition. Rebuilt and restored, the engine fits neatly under the hood and includes an original downdraft carburetor and oil bath air cleaner, as well as an industry-leading mechanical fuel pump to replace the primitive vacuum tank. Corporate gray paint on the engine belies its affordability, but the engine is smooth and torquey and renowned for its ruggedness. A 3-speed manual transmission shifts easily thanks to the adoption of synchromesh on second and third gears, and the rear end has gears tall enough to make driving around town a shiftless affair. Pretty painted wire wheels affixed to either end of live axles make up the rolling stock, and wear 5.25/5.50-18 whitewalls to really add some flash. Far more unusual than a Ford and arguably even more attractive, this Chevrolet offers a unique combination of style and practicality that were its hallmarks then and today. Call now!
