1926 Chevrolet Capitol

1926 Chevrolet Capitol Coupe

In the latter part of 1926 Chevrolet was gearing up to make some changes due to information they had about the eventual launch of the new Ford Model A to replace the Model T that was on an 18 year run. They changed the name of their Superior V model to the Capitol AA coupe, which was a smaller car, soft top, and rumble seat. A compact car per se.

NO TITLE-SOLD ON A BILL OF SALE ONLY

Here we have for consignment a 1926 Bowtie Capitol Coupe which at one time has been run through the restoration process. Aquamarine body work with black curvaceous fenders and running boards and body matching artillery solid steel wheel. This car is fairly buttoned up and ready to go and show. Roar-ing.

Exterior
Rust free steel panels painted in aquamarine are looking straight and true on this 2 door coupe body. In front, a black radiator surrounded with black encased headlights flanking on either side and tubular black steel front bumper. A cowled hood, flip out windshield, framed doors and roll up windows are all presenting nicely with the aquamarine. On back a rounded trunk magically opens up to reveal a rumble (mother in law!) seat. Running the length are black painted curved fenders which frame 21-inch solid steel artillery wheels which are also in aquamarine. Rubber covered running boards bridge the gap between the fenders and have a chromed edge. On the back split dual tubular black bumpers are on either side of the attached outboard hanging spare tire, which is wrapped in black vinyl. On top is an older canvas top that has sustained some tearing at the seams, and has a nearly opaque yellowed rear plastic window. Just below the top in front is a long black sun visor, hanging above the windshield.

Interior
Brown vinyl covers the smooth unadorned door panels that have the door actuator and window crank. In front is a metal dash in its original shape as it was from the factory, now in aquamarine metal top and front. In the center are 2 oval gauge panels and a central circular speedometer and odometer, along with a dash light above. Brown smooth faux leather pattern vinyl covers the front and only bench seat. This covering is also used for the rear rumble seat and goes nicely with the aquamarine. An original bakelite (now covered with tan leather) and metal spoked steering wheel fronts the dash and has some paint chipping but retains the advance and front vent levers, as well as the turn signal setup. A black rubber floor is covering the bottom end of the car, and a long shift lever reaches for the driver directly in the center.

Drivetrain
Under the neatly folded hood, is a completely restored engine bay, all nice and shiny. A like new engine sits within these confines and it is painted black with a red valve cover and fuel canister. What you are looking at is a 171ci inline 4-cylinder with a 1-barrel up draft carburetor and a 3-speed transmission on back. A rear axle ratio of 3.82:1 is installed on this car.

Undercarriage
Also, a beneficiary of some of the cosmetics that come with a normal restoration, we note solid black covered framing and new paneled running boards can now be seen bolted on. These panels have been sprayed with a black paint rattle can. 4 wheel leaf springs for the suspension and mechanical drum brakes only on the rear axle.

As we roar into the mid 20's with this nice color combo two tone coupe with a rag top, and artillery wheels and a rumble seat in back grab your straw hat, bob your hair and let's go swillin'. Que the Charleston, Line Up the Flappers...
