1928 Chevrolet AB National roadster


This sharp-looking Pick of the Day is a 1928 Chevrolet AB National roadster, which the private seller in Farmington, Utah, says in the car’s advertisement on ClassicCars.com is “museum condition throughout.”

“Fantastic car to show and drive,” the seller adds.

Chevrolet enlarged its cars for the 1928 model year, adding four inches to the wheelbase as the Capitol AA series was replaced by the National AB.

The car has burgundy body with black trim and fenders, black leather seat and the 62,265 odometer reading is believed to reflect that actual mileage.

Power comes from a 35-horsepower, 171cid four-cylinder engine linked to a manual transmission.

“Features and accessories include Chevrolet ‘bow tie”’ floor matting, finished trunk matting and siding, Chevrolet wings hood ornament/radiator cap, electric gas pump (mounted under car) and original vacuum gas pump (so you can use either system), key lock for steering wheel, hand crank, 1928 Utah license plates, original vintage promotional/advertising material and spare parts,” the seller notes, adding that the car has been entered in only one show, where it won best of show honors.

The seller also notes that standard equipment for 1928 included an inside rear-view mirror, rear light and brake light, parking lights and a gas gauge.

“Bumpers, however, were still optional — but purchased by the original owner of this car.”

The asking price is $24,950, but the seller would consider a trade for a 1930s-vintage car or a 1955 model.
