Rare 1942 Chevrolet Used as Sign for Auto Parts Store on Far S. Congress Ave.
Only 258,795 Chevys were built in 1942 due to war mobilization. Some were Blackout models without chrome or stainless steel trim. Cannot tell if this trim is painted over, or is a Blackout type. Cost $799 new. Used a 216 cu.in. Stovebolt straight six OHV engine to produce 90 hp. This basic engine powered Chevrolets from 1929 into the 1960s, or beyond.
