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

1926 Aussie Chev Ute (a good Project Car)

Found this on EBay.

The highest bid of $1,625 was not above reserve, and I suspect the seller may be looking for around $2,500 to $3,000. A lot of work has been done, but still a lot to do.

Being a Ute, the amount of panels required will be less and Aussie reproductions are available. I would want to know the condition of the motor, gearbox and diff.

A lot of work has gone into the new tray, but why use pine for the bearers?

This could be a good winter project, Yes? No?

The EBay description reads........
