Rumble seat classics are always in style. Not only does this 1931
Chevrolet Coupe have one, but also there have been solid
investments all around this car to deliver a great-looking total
package with a strong six-cylinder under the hood.
GM and Chevrolet entered the 1930s as the sales king over Ford.
This quick rise to power was because these cars delivered what the
customers wanted. So while this burgundy and black two-tone isn't
exactly what General Motors applied nine decades ago, it showcases
that same spirit of attractive variety you got when buying a Chevy
all those years ago. Of course, not everyone at the car show gets
to hear this story, but the glossy presentation tells this tale all
on its own. And this idea of style is really in the details.
There's a premium flair in the way the cream-colored wire wheels
(including the rear-mounted full size spare) coordinate with the
full-length pinstripe. There's also a thin black pinstripe below it
to go with the color on the fenders and roof. Even the windows are
nicely detailed with burgundy outlines. So people will be impressed
just by the full color package. Of course, you'll love it too. But
as the owner, you will just appreciate the paint as part of the
larger full quality presentation that has a quality steel body with
well-done panels and doors that close with confidence.
The first thing you notice when you open the door is the well-done
bench seat. It was recovered in 2019 to give you a fresh and comfy
velour. There are nice classic display pieces, too, like the heater
and intricate gauge panel. Ventilation is also much better than
you'll find on many classics. Not only do you have roll-down side
windows, but also an added roof vent and roll-down rear window let
air flow through the interior. Plus, that open rear window is a
terrific pairing with the rumble seat. It was reupholstered at the
same time as the front, and so it makes for a quality presentation
of this hallmark item.
Chevrolets were not only stylish, but they also offered you
six-cylinder power when the Model A only had four. And while that
made the Chevy's desirable in the 1920 and 1930s, what makes this
one so great today are the right upgrades. For example, the motor's
internals were cleaned and then switched to synthetic oil. There
was also a new gas tank, separate oil cooler, and upgraded water
pump added within the last few years. This still even runs on a
6-volt system. The three-speed manual transmission was given a
newer clutch to help keep this a smooth shifter. So it all makes
for a car that has a classic but confident feeling going down the
