Chevrolet Series V Landau 1926




Chevrolet introduced this car two years before the Model A Ford, but in many ways it was a more advanced automobile than the Ford. It has electric start, runs quietly, and provides a surprisingly smooth ride. This car is unrestored and runs great, not bad for an 89 year old car.

  3. I LOVE it. Bud and I went to an antique car show this weekend and I have some fabulous pictures of an old Ford truck. Can’t wait to post it for you and the other that appreciate the vintage vehicles. A beauty.

  5. Makes you wonder why the Ford was apparently so much more successful (or at least recognizable). Better marketing maybe?

  9. Electric start with a crank start? And is that the carb side? Not gravity fed, is it venturi?

    Awesome looking car, one of the first examples of American public preferring mass produced Model A verse more expensive and more advanced?
