1922 Chevrolet Other Additional Info:

1922 Chevrolet Model 490 Touring car, recently restored. Previous owner kept this car garaged in the Riverside, California area for many decades, and accordingly it is rust free and in great condition. Upholstery is in great shape, and the car is in excellent condition for a 99 year old vehicle and nearly all original. Runs very well, does not smoke, knock or make funny noises. Paint is good, with a few imperfections here and there but the flaws in the paint do not detract from the generally nice overall condition of the car. Stewart speedometer does not function, but the odometer does work. Please note that the 1922 Illinois front and back license plates in the photos are not included in this sale, I will remove those from the car upon its sale.
