|1946 Chevrolet 4-Door Sedan (3 views)||M60 Home Restorations Gallery|
In its day, this was without a doubt the sort of car that the general public wanted. Solid, dependable, comfortable, it got the family where it wanted to go, the father and mother to work or wherever their day might lead them, the kids to ball games. All that, and it was attractive, too.
The styling of this postwar sedan was pretty much unchanged from the last of the pre-war Chevrolets. Ditto for the engine, but who would want to mess with that Chevy six? The car was big, it was roomy, and it was a chance to get out of the car that had had to struggle through the war years and into something new. New tires, too -- no more Maypops! And no ration sticker on the windshield.
Elliot needed just such a car when he bought this one in the 1980s and restored it from the ground up. He and his family had it in California, Georgia, Canada, and all points in between. It served them well for many, many years, and has helped them build quite an album of memories.
Nice work, Detroit.
