"Life is completer in a Chevy..."

This pristine beauty looks like something Dinah Shore might have been singing about.

Another great one. Where's Dinah Shore when we need her? See the USA, in your Chevrolet!

Lots of bells and whistles, curb feelers, fender guides, headlight peaks … air deflector(?)

Good angle too LA.

She's an absolutely gleaming, beautiful gem of a car! Ravishing red!

Wow! I'd like to see that one in person. "If you can make a better deal on a new Chevrolet anywhere, I'll give you five pounds of Hills Brothers coffee." Ellis Brooks, San Francisco. To the tune of the Dinah Shore song: "See Ellis Brooks today, for a Chevrolet, corner of Bush and Van Ness..."

A candy apple with whitewalls. What a car!

I'll bet you could belt out some great renditions of the See the USA, Dixie Jane.

WV: hipho!

That may date pre-Dinah, but I sure do love the colors. That has to be late 40's. That's what I'd call a beast!!!

Ahhhh, but what a ravishing beast!!!
Love the red!!! But then, I'm rather partial to red cars!!!

In the early 60s, for a short time, my mom had a '41 Chevy. They sold it for $50. They should have saved it for me.

Hind sight is 20/20 Mr Earl!!!

My dad had a gorgeous red Austin Healy convertible...it was his dream car, which he had for just a couple of years...he got rid of it before I was able to drive...both my sisters got to...darn it!!!

Now that is a dream machine. Fine looking car!

I spent a long time circling around this car and drooling, er, photographing it. It even had little red dice shaped caps on the tire valves.

That car has some pretty sweet restoration work done on it! It looks great, all slick and sleek as it is, and I bet that a lot of tinkering was done to get the machines under the hood in order. The whole vehicle reflects the dedication of the owner, whoever he or she is.
