1928 Chevrolet: Which One To Buy?

Prewar Chevrolets

The Yellow Chevy is listed on eBay and hasn’t been registered since 1972. It looks stock and unmolested but appears to have been restored at some point. It’s in Santa Rosa, California, so perhaps there’s not much rust. There are already over 20 bids with the current high bid of $6,000 not meeting reserve. If the yellow one is just too bright for you, there is a green Chevy listed here on craigslist and is also a California car in Orange County. It appears stock and unmolested, but it also might have been restored at some previous point. They are asking $8,000 for it. How much would you be willing to pay for either of these Chevys? Can you tell from the information which on you would look at first if you were shopping?

    The green car is the better choice. It’s a coupe not a sedan as listed. The thing to look out for on these is the wood in the body. All the structure is made of wood and subject to rot after nearly 90 years. BTW, the price on the green car dropped to $7250 yesterday.

    I’m a firm believer in paying a little more for the car that needs a LOT less work. Imagine what it would cost to do the body and interior work the yellow car needs.
