The AD series Chevy introduced in 1930 had a few mechanical improvements over the previous AC model such as hydraulic shock absorbers, a few more horsepower, and the fuel gauge was moved to the dash. There’s nothing special about this Chevy listed on craigslist in West Richland, Washington but it’s a good example of just how little demand there is for prewar cars and how little they are worth. The seller purchased this Chevy from the estate of the former owner. It is completely original except that it was painted and reupholstered in the 1990s. It’s not a show car but it runs and drives very well. Up close, the paint likely shows wear and damage, but it looks nice from twenty feet.
The interior may not be period correct but it looks really nice.
This is the same 194 cubic inches overhead valve six-cylinder engine as the previous model, but horsepower was increased from 46 to 50.
It probably needs tires, but otherwise, this old car looks pretty nice from either end, ready to be driven and enjoyed. These are very driveable cars around town and very easy to work on. If you’ve never driven a car of this vintage you might be surprised how mich fun they are to drive. Hopefully, the new owner won’t cut it up for yet another hot rod.
