The Pick of the Day is a 1934 Chevrolet coupe that comes with a wonderful story of family ownership.
“Our father bought this car when he was a senior in high school in 1942 from his best friend,” reports the private seller, which turns out to be four sisters. (The car cost $485 new; Dad paid $144 for the car.)
“Our parents dated in this car, and then drove it for a few years before starting a family.
“Then Dad dutifully stored the car away with the idea that someday he would restore it,” the sellers continue. “In 1999, nearly 50 years later, Mom talked him into tackling this project. It took them nearly two years to rebuild the engine and mechanical parts of the car and then to restore the body and interior. We have the written info and pictures that explain what was done in the process.
“The end result has brought tremendous joy to our families as it was driven in various parades,” the sisters note.
“When Dad passed away, we loaned it to the Montana Auto Museum where it has been on display and enjoyed by thousands of others through the past 10-12 years.”
Now, however, the sisters have decided it is time to sell the car, which is being offered for $38,500 through an advertisement on ClassicCars.com.
The car, which appears in the photos with the ad and from the museum to be in immaculate restored condition, is in Helena, Montana, and is a two-tone green coupe with tan interior.
According to the placard displayed with the car in the museum, it is equipped with a 181cid inline-6-cylinder engine rated at 60 horsepower. The engine is linked to a manual transmission.
The advertisement notes that the engine has been rebuilt and is running, that the exterior of the car is in “very good” condition, and that the car has a cloth interior.
