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

A Great 32 Chev to Restore or Drive As Is with A Little Bit Of Work

I found this beautiful 32, my favourite model Chev, on Ebay, in Melbourne. So close but yet so far. If only!!!!!!

And the posting reads

Up for auction is a very rare and desireable 1932 Chevrolet Confederate Tudor. These cars are very hard to find, and this one is very original having been kept in a barn for many, many years. It is a very straight and solid car with minor rust bubbles in some lower panels. The wood seems nice and solid and the windows all wind as they should. The car starts up first kick and runs very well. It pulls like a train and rides smoothly. Trans and diff are in great condition and the mechanical brakes work okay but pull a bit to the right. The interior is original from 1932 but needs to be redone due to hungry mice and old age. The car could do with a full resto but would also look great as an original car with it's old paint. As far as I can tell the car has been painted once in the last 80 years, and still shines fine after a quick cleanup. There is a small dent in the upper rear roof panel and the right rear guard has a split in the bead. This would be an awesome hotrod or a super nice restored car, the style on these Confederates is really something else. Check out the cool doors in the bonnet sides!
