America’s Great Depression was at its height when Chevrolet introduced the Series BA Confederate for the 1932 model year. The Confederate replaced the Series AE Independence and drew a great deal from the previous model both mechanically and cosmetically. While suffering a huge sales decline of almost fifty percent from 1931, the slightly over 300,000 units sold kept Chevrolet in the number one position in American car sales.

Changes to the 1932 body included a sloped windshield that allowed for the elimination of the external visor utilized on previous models. Vents that could be opened and closed on the hood replaced the louvers found on previous model years. On Deluxe models those vents were finished in chrome. Mechanically, the Confederate continued to use the company’s venerable “Stovebolt Six” engine which was fitted with a new downdraft carburetor and an increased compression ratio to improve performance. The transmission was a three speed synchronized manual with a free-wheeling provision that allowed the vehicle to “coast” when the driver took their foot off the accelerator. The electrical system was a six-volt negative ground and numerous lighting and accessory options were available through both the factory and the selling dealership.

According to production records found in the Encyclopedia of American Cars only 419 of this model were manufactured in the 1932 model year. Appointed in a two-tone tan and black livery with red wheels wrapped with whitewall tires, the car bears evidence of an older restoration that has aged well. The interior is finished in tan leather and is in very good condition.
