1936 Chevrolet Sedan
This was the 25th Anniversary of Chevrolet, and, with sales 70% up from 1935, Chevrolet regained the #1 spot from Ford. Our vehicle is the standard sized car, with a 109 inch wheelbase. The Master DeLuxe series was longer. The Chevy featured a number of significant developments, including the low priced makes first use of hydraulic brakes. They also had all metal "turret" roofs, finally abandoning wood altogether. The Fisher made bodies introduced "No Draught" ventilation as well. The car has a 79 HP 6 cylinder engine with a five speed transmission.
