For Sale: 1928 Chevrolet AA Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia

Vehicle Description

Motorcar Studio is pleased to offer this 1928 Chevrolet Capitol Express 1-ton pickup truck. Introduced in 1927 in both car and truck versions, the Capitol was far more advanced than the Ford Model T - in fact, competition from GM is what led Ford to cease production of the Model T and introduce the all-new Model A in 1928. Chevrolet took full advantage of Ford's production gap in while retooling for the Model A - in 1927, Chevrolet was the best-selling vehicle in America for the first time (although Ford overtook Chevy again in '28).

This example has a known history dating back to the early 1980s; it was a solid and rust-free Iowa truck before being acquired by a retired master mechanic in Washington State who undertook a multi-year, frame-off, nut-and-bolt restoration. All of the original drivetrain components have been rebuilt, including the engine, transmission, starter, generator, etc. This is not an assembled built from catalog spares - the only non-original body or drivetrain components are the rear fenders, which were new old stock. Professional paint job with hand pin striping executed to a much higher standard than you typically see on a truck from this era; attention to detail abounds throughout with all switches, lights and gauges working as they should (including the speedometer and odometer, and we believe the mileage at just over 27,000 to be original). Driven fewer than 500 miles since the restoration, the paint, body, wood bed and interior still present in beautiful condition.

Under the hood is Chevrolet's 171 cubic inch overhead valve-in-head four cylinder engine (Ford was still using a a flathead / sidevalve configuration). The late-1928 series LP trucks came standard with a four-speed manual transmission (which also has a power-take-off coming out of the side to propel a variety of implements). The LP Utility Express was also the first Chevrolet truck to have brakes standard on all four wheels.

This Chevy starts, runs and drives remarkably well, consistent with what you would expect on a truck that has only been driven 500 miles since it was rebuilt.
