For Sale: 1931 Chevrolet Special Deluxe in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

There are plenty of great-looking Model As out there (we've got some beauties for sale, too.) But when you want true 1930s distinction and upgrade to six-cylinder power, it's hard to beat this 1931 Chevrolet AE sedan. And as you dig into the details, you'll see the right investment that shows this classic was one that continues to be great for driving.

Chevrolets were the "in" cars to have because these cars delivered the extra style that 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. It's the right kind of finish for a nearly 90-year-old classic where it has a good shine, but the right hints of age and use where it looks like it has experienced America's history. In fact, there are even some beliefs and documents that could suggest the odometer represents the full actual mileage. And the vintage style is seen everywhere with the wire grille guard, whitewall tires, windshield overhang, and wire wheels - including the dual fender-mounted spares. It's an impressive classic especially because of its legacy. The early 1930s Chevrolets are often a rare sight. They edged out Ford to be the sales leader in 1931, but both companies were wishing they had the big numbers from the Roaring Twenties. So the AE series sold less than its predecessors, and people kept them for longer. So when we think about the full history, we tend to get impressed by an example like this that has both survived and had the right investments to thrive.

The interior is full of handsome fabric that looks quite period correct but has the look, feel, and atmosphere of something far fresher. So it makes for an inviting atmosphere that can fill this spacious sedan with family and friends. But you are always going to be the one to enjoy it the most. The driver gets an intricate gauge panel, tall shifter, and a classic four-spoke steering wheel with just the right amount of aging to make sure you can feel the generations who gripped this wheel before you. What you'll also appreciate are the little things. We have receipts showing recent investments within the last year for some new window seals. And the updated burlwood accenting the dash and doors really upgrades the stylishness without losing the vintage charm.

Chevrolets were not only stylish, but they also offered you six-cylinder power when the Model A only had four. And while that made Chevy's desirable in the 1920 and 1930s, what makes this one so great today are the right upgrades. We have photos showing a likely rebuild, and there are also receipts documenting investment within the last year that include a cleaned gas tank, new fuel sending unit, cleaned radiator, upgraded oil pump, and a rebuilt fuel pump. The three-speed manual transmission features a new clutch, pressure plate, and throw-out bearing. The brakes were recently serviced, and the whitewalls are new Coker classic units (a $1,600 investment alone.) So it feels like a proper 1930s machine going down the road, but you can feel the added confidence of proper care.

The sale comes complete with an owner's manual, service manuals, maintenance records, and build receipts. This is the stylish Chevy that's been correctly respected to make sure it's ready for Sunday drives. Call today!!!
