1928 CHEVY BOAT TAIL SPEEDSTER
ALL STEEL BODY
Happy Holidays everyone and thank you for viewing my listing. I am offering for sale a custom 1928 Chevrolet Boat Tail Speedster (the car is titled as a 1928 Chevrolet Sedan). This very attractive automobile was conceived and constructed on an original 1928 Chevrolet frame and 4 cylinder motor by a very experienced builder of Speedsters in the Pacific Northwest having designed and built many in the last 30 years. I purchased the car for my wife who expressed an interest in having something very unusual and sexy perhaps a convertible or preferably an open-cowled Roadster or Speedster.
The pictures represent the Speedster as refined and elegant, but she is anything but. This the oldest automobile that I have ever purchased and driven and she doesn't drive like our 2001 Cadillac Sedan. While my wife salivated over the way the car looks and the attention it garners, this 1928 Speedster is very loud and raw, the car does not have power steering and she had a difficult time turning the steering wheel when the car is sitting still or parking at very low speed, the "Beast" also does not have power brakes. I personally do not have any trouble turning the steering wheel or braking, but if you are a petite 95 pound lady with long fingernails, this may not be the car for you.
While driving the car at about 15-20 miles per hour, there was a serious vibration on the front end after hitting a pothole and only ceases when you slow down or turn the steering wheel a bit, but at 45 mils per hour the Speedster seems to handle perfectly. Here in Key West, Florida the top speed limit is 35 mph so I haven't had the opportunity to drive the car faster than 45 mph. The engine has been professionally rebuilt and runs fine, however in the morning the car requires a few seconds to fire up.
Basically, I bit off more than I can chew with this fabulous "Beast", I know absolutely nothing about fixing or maintaining old cars (this car is 86 years old!) I don't even change car batteries, I just enjoy buying and driving beautiful and unusual cars. I do not recommend this, or any nearly 90 year old automobile to anyone who does not understand and work on cars. This beautiful 1928 Chevrolet Speedster is for the purist, not a casual driver like myself. I have owned several Bugatti Replica's with the Volkswagen drive train and I prefer that, a car that was manufactured in the late 1960's but looks very old. I hope that I haven't scared everyone away but the objective and bottom line here is that this car is a rare and fantastic automotive investment opportunity, and the previous owner spent a great deal of money and time bringing this machine functionally into the 21st century, and that was certainly reflected in the price that I paid for this car. I don't mean to sound trite here but as the old adage goes, my loss is surely going to be someone's gain.
Please email with any questions and offers. Happy Holidays.
