When you google 1918 Chevrolet ,in the images is a touring car with 3 apples on the running board, I can get the apples but would really like the purple paint color, maybe a vcca member car. I'm a couple months from paint and reassembly and would like to end up with a car that looks like that !

My 1918 490 is black exterior and interior. Canhardly tell it from a Model T. At least that is what most people that see it think it is. Yes even if it has Chevrolet Bow-Tie emblems.


How Sweet the roar of a Chevy four!
