The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

  1. Is it still for sale

    1. To the best of my knnowledge it ended on 6th december, and was not sold. Suggest you try making contact with the seller. I know if I had the funds, I would have checked it out by now.

      Good Luck.

      Thanks for the comment and let us know what you find.


    2. No, I purchased this vehicle and look forward to picking it up after the New Year.

    3. Well Done,

      I am sure by the look of the photos and the ground work done so far, you will be a happy buyer. Please drop a line from time to time and let me know how the project is proceeding.



  2. Hi Ray, Almost 12 months down the track and the Sloper has been progressing all the doors, guards, trims etc has been taken back to bare metal and primed. Absolutely no rust in the car anywhere... amazing! Carby and fuel and water pumps rebuilt. Has some damage to the worm drive in the steering box (for knee action shock model) and am trying to source a replacement new or 2nd hand parts do you have any suggestion where to look?

  3. Hi John,

    Can I suggest Chev Parts in Sydney, or The Filling Station in USA.

    Good luck with the resto, please let me know how its going.
