Here’s another find from the photo album. It took me quite a while to nail this down as a Chevrolet—I’m not that familiar with early post-war cars, and the hood badge sent me down the wrong path. The 1946 model was actually a pre-war design (the grill was the most noticeable change for 1946) powered by the venerable 216 cu. in. (3.5 L) “stovebolt” OHV six engine making 83hp. Given the car weighed over 3,100 lb., “stately” is probably the term best used to describe it’s fleetness of foot.
