1927 Chevrolet Capitol

HIGHLIGHTS: Here's something you don't see very often! Chevrolet's Model A competition! An older restoration in good driver condition, this Chevrolet Capitol is a great find!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, showing that this car has been cared for since it was restored. This is a solid old car that looks pretty darn good for being nearly 100 years old!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The black and gray two-tone paint is an excellent choice for a pre-war car, and it really sets it apart from the typical fully black pre-war Model As so many of us are used to seeing. The paint is in good, glossy condition with a deep shine and will catch your eye even in a room of more colorful vehicles! There are some minor imperfections to be found here and there, but overall the paint is well-kept.

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: Climbing inside this 1927 Chevrolet Capitol is like stepping into a time machine! Even the action of positioning yourself in the driver's seat is a reminder of how things once were. The seats are in good, usable condition but given that this car is an older restoration they are showing some wear on the upper edges and could stand to be recovered if you wanted that fresh restoration look. The carpet is not factory correct and could also stand to be replaced. Otherwise, the interior is in good condition!

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Pop whichever side of the hood you prefer, and you'll see a period-correct 171 cubic inch Chevrolet 4-cylinder open pushrod engine. This is one cool engine to see in operation! Hooked up to a 3-speed manual transmission, this Capitol won't be winning any races any time soon. This car was driven to our location.

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The simple fact that it's not a Model A Ford!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're looking for a freshly restored show car, as nice as this one is it is simply not that.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? While this car has seen a restoration, it appears to have been quite some time ago and it wouldn't hurt to go over it before putting it on the road. Additionally, there is no ignition key, so the ignition is currently wired to an ON/OFF switch.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for an unusual, affordable, classic American car should consider this Chevy!

Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Vehicle availability is not guaranteed and subject to prior sale. Regardless what is agreed to verbally, we cannot guarantee a vehicle will be held for a potential buyer without a non-refundable deposit collected to hold the vehicle.
