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

What a beautiful 1932 Chevrolet - $44,995 USD




The internet posting reads............................................

For sale in our St. Louis showroom is a beautiful 1932 Chevrolet Phaeton. The odometer on this 32 Phaeton reads 932, which represents the miles driven since the restoration was completed nearly 20 years ago. Options for this 1932 Chevrolet Phaeton include: Manual Convertible Top, Vinyl Interior, Manual Turn Signals, Windshield Wiper, Wide White Wall Bias Ply Tires, and Wire Wheels. Powering this Chevrolet Phaeton is a 3.2L "Stove Bolt" 6 cylinder engine, which is believed to be original to the car. It is a naturally aspirated engine that features 2 valves per cylinder and produces 60 horsepower. A 3 speed manually transmission transfers those horses to the rear end, which houses 4.10 gears. This Phaeton was restored 20 years ago, and still looks fantastic. The blue exterior paint against the tan top, tan interior, and orange wire wheels produce a very unique look that does not disappoint. The tan top and tan vinyl interior are both in very good condition, free from any rips, tears, or serious wear. The Phaeton body style differs from a convertible in that it does not have a winding or sliding windows in the doors nor does it have a permanent, fixed roof. Due to the lack of a rigid or fixed roof, the Phaeton was much lighter than a convertible. The Phaeton body style was faded out after the convertible style became much more popular with its ability to be driven in all types of weather. The last Phaeton to be mass produced by an American manufacturer was the 1948 Willys-Overland Jeepster. To view this 1932 Chevrolet Phaeton in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our St. Louis showroom.
