When you want a '20s-style classic that's more distinct than a
Model A, the Chevy is the right way to go. But nearly 90 years
later, we are reminded that not all were created equal or treated
the same. That's why we get excited about this 1926 Chevrolet
Superior. It's a vivid two-tone classic that even has some awards
under its belt.
The blue and black are perfect complements, especially in their
high-gloss finishes. It's a well-done color package with the blue
sandwiched in-between the black fender/running boards and the roof
section. There's even a red pinstripe at the window line for added
distinction. The restoration on this sedan happened a few decades
ago, but it was truly top-class that's why it took home Senior
first prize at the 1989 AACA National. And when you do something
high-quality, the value endures. That's why this car continues to
impress, right down to details, like the Chevrolet step plates,
windshield overhang, intricate bumpers, and wood wheels.
The blue interior is full of handsome fabric that looks quite
period correct but has the look, feel, and atmosphere of something
far fresher. It's quite handsome in its simplicity with the bright
real wood steering wheel, and the right gauges in the center of the
dash. There is no radio, but when you roll down the window and hear
the chug of the motor, we're willing to bet that on every road trip
you'll create a mental soundtrack of sweet jazz tune.
Just like the rest of the car, the engine bay impresses with its
tidy and correct appearance. This 171 cubic-inch four-cylinder
warms up to be a smooth runner. So you know you'll just love
lifting the side of the hood at car shows just so you can showcase
the mechanical action of the pushrods and valves. When you get this
one out on the road, the three-speed manual transmission has a true
mechanical feel you'll love. Leaf springs, wood wheels, and bias
ply tires are far from modern, which makes them perfect in this
time capsule Chevy. The full experience of being behind the wheel
is to feel rolling history.
The full picture file (especially the undercarriage photos) is all
the proof you need that this was a careful restoration. It's an
authentic part of history that even comes with the owner's manual.
