Description

1926 Chevrolet Superior 2-Door Sedan

By 1926, Chevrolet had begun to seriously challenge the dominance of the Ford Model T. The Chevrolet Superior series was more mechanically sophisticated, and buyers had a choice of a variety of colors. Chevrolet introduced the Superior, series V in mid-1926 and was marketed into the first part of the 1927 sales year. Powering these cars was an overhead valve four-cylinder engine with cam operated oil pump, belt-driven generator, three-speed floor-mounted manual transmission, semi-floating rear axle and external contracting rear brakes. Total production of 1926 Chevrolets reached 486,366 units.

For consignment a barn find condition 1926 Chevrolet Superior Model V- 2 door sedan. All surfaces of this car have faded and slight surface rusted paint, a dulled front radiator surround, and surface rusted floorboards. A canvas top is installed and has some cracking along with aging going on up top. Very simple box style construction with no real invasive rust seen on the body. An unrestored 4-cylinder engine resides under the cowled hood.

Exterior
Faded dark green adorns the cowled hood doors and lower rear tub of this car. The upper part (front doors north) is black painted steel with the very top being canvas as the technology of the day did not allow for such a large panel to be formed in 1 piece. This canvas is cracked and faded but there are no holes or tears in it. Simple fenders curve around the surface rusted solid steel 21-inch wheels with thin tires and are painted black. They have a running board in the center attaching them to each other which is literally a rough sawn wood board. On the back is the fuel tank which has a bit of surface rust and a scissoring spare tire holder. All glass is there and in good condition.

Interior
If you adore mohair, then this interior is just for you. Door panels and seats are covered in it, as are the pillars. The headliner may have been as well, but now has bare canvas only with no mohair covering the canvas. Front seats are simple low back buckets which were originally covered in mohair but now have a triangle pattern broadcloth covering with plenty of gaffers tape to hold it together. The rear seat is in this triangular pattern as well and has nice tuck and roll stitched puffy panels with plenty of staining on them, but no tape. The dash is metal and original to the car and has 2 oval gauge clusters and centrally located circular speedometer and odometer along with a warning light above. A wood steering wheel in good condition fronts they dash. Floors are covered in rubber which has accumulated lots of dirt over the years.

Drivetrain
171ci of an inline 4-cylinder is under the hood. There is some paint peeling throughout this engine bay and on the valve covering. A 1-barrel carburetor feeds the 4 popper, and behind it is a 3-speed manual transmission.

Undercarriage
Plenty of surface rust, but structural integrity has been maintained. Save for the running boards which have been interpreted literally, and now have actual unsurfaced wood to cover the span between the rounded fenders. Simple leaf sprung suspension is all around, and mechanical drum brakes are on the rear. It appears that the passenger rear wheel has a seal leak.

Drive-Ability
The engine turns over by hand, but no attempt was made to start it

All steel, all patina, some surface rust, and TLC needed on the interior. You have a blank slate to work with, and the possibilities are endless as to colors and interior finishes. When refurbished these cars are real award winners. Could this car be a future award winner? Up to you!
