Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
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. Don't miss out, call today!
