Description

Lot #711.1 - Chevrolet introduced its overhead valve 6 cylinder engine in 1929 and capitalized on it on the allure of selling "A Six for the Price of a Four" and Ford's lengthy production shutdown, to transition from the Model T to the Model A, selling 1,328,605 Chevys in that standout year. Chevy's 50 hp 6 proved to be ideal for commercial use, too, and in 1931 Chevrolet built a full line of light duty trucks in the AE-Independence series including this very attractive and whimsical Canopy Express, known almost universally as a Huckster because of its use by roadside and route-driving entrepreneurs. Finished in red with black fenders and a black composition roof, it is upholstered in black and has black rollup side curtains to protect the contents of the 72" long by 45" wide bed. Like many of its counterpart Chevy trucks, it is the deluxe model with front sheet metal shared with Chevy's automobiles, chromed radiator shell and wide white wall tires on body-color painted wire wheels. It carries a single sidemounted spare tire in the left front fender. Very nicely restored and ready to show, it even has an assortment of vegetables and wooden crates for a more intriguing display.
