1926 Chevrolet Superior K Panel Delivery
The Chevrolet Superior was launched in 1923, manufactured by
Chevrolet for four years with a different series per year. This
chassis was shared with other GM products at the time, including
Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Oakland and GMC products, introducing
the "A-body", "B-body" and "C-body". This policy of sharing
mechanicals across multiple brands led to the General Motors
Companion Make Program in the 1920s.
Imagine yourself in 1926 tooling around the dirt roads of Illinois
peddling your milk or other goods from your farm to the public.
Chevrolet offers up this consignment in the form of a Superior K
series enclosed delivery truck. She's nicely aged, and seemingly
original with plenty of years of use and age on her, but no
invasive rust. This long wheelbase big box truck with its dual
sliding side doors made in and out a breeze for many stops.
Harkening back to a simpler time, this truck was a key tool for the
farmer to get his goods into a more populated area.
All rustic black steel panels cover this truck, and most on the
back section and roof are reinforced with simple wood slats. Curved
fenders and running boards frame the 20 inch wooden spoked wheels
wrapped with thin 6.00-20 tires to make slogging through the
ever-present mud roads a snap. A cowled hood and a large
rectangular box with dual full length swinging doors is the makeup,
and it all works. Noted the drivers sliding door is with this
truck, but not currently installed. Fenders and running boards have
a few areas of rust through, and plenty of dents but all are coated
in the paints black paint.
Save for the newer seat (old coil spring bench seat is retained),
the interior is original. Essentially a wood framed box then
covered on the exterior with metal. It appears all original with
the floor being fairly dirty but no rot areas seen. Same for the
driver's floor which remains solid. The simple dash with its
surface rusted gauges, and wood rimmed steering wheel reaching for
the driver fronts a newly covered black vinyl bench seat (cushion
on wood). Nice shellacked lath forms the roof of the interior and
is supported by metal arches.
Under the cowled hood lies a 177ci 4 cylinder engine which is fed
by a 1-barrel carburetor and moves the truck with a 3-speed manual
transmission. All original under the cowls. We turned the engine
over by hand but did not attempt to start it.
Some surface rust, but overall solid. Just a bit of rotting
underneath on some wood flooring and pieces open to the elements.
Leaf spring suspension iOS all around, and mechanical drum brakes
are on the rear.
A well preserved survivor original truck with a big box back. Door
to door delivery never looked so good...fresh milk!
