Garrett Classics is proud to showcase this beautiful 1929 Chevrolet "Six" Roadster. These cars were designed by a young Harley Earl, the new head of GM's Art & Colour section (circa 1929). This is a beautiful example that is a pleasure to motor in. This car shows very well throughout. The correct gauge cluster is functional as is the horn & emergency brake. This car is certainly a step up from the base Roadster, with its beautiful wire wheels & full canvas top w side curtains. Chevrolet offered the 1929 AC International Six Series in 10 body types, from the $525 open roadster to the stately $725 Imperial Landau. According to our seller, this is the "Sport" version of the Roadster with wire wheels instead of the base steel artillery wheels. That makes it a bit more rare that other roadsters. The engine matches the title & identification plate is posted below.
The canvas convertible top also has full side curtains & a storage pouch. We also have a convertible top boot, also stored in a pouch. The interior is in exceptionally good condition. The gauges are functional and the steering wheel shows well. The upholstery is in great shape as are the door panels. Under the hood side panels resides Chevrolet's 196 cubic inch line-6, factory rated at 46 horsepower. This was the 1st year of Chevrolet's inline-six, a design that proved so robust it would remain in production until 1954. Not only was this engine design utilized for over 20 years, it was the only engine type Chevrolet utilized during this time period. This example runs smooth and is paired with the factory 3-speed non-synchro gearbox. The trunk is in excellent condition. Also, note the side curtains, convertible top boot, and storage bags.
