Production slipped significantly from over 600,000 cars to 313,395 as the Great Depression continued, ut was still sufficient for Chevrolet to retain first place in the American car sales table. Specification The Series BA carried over much from the Series AE and the main external differences were the sloping of the windshield and the removal of the external visor above. On either side of the hood the previous louvers were replaced by opening vents, inished in a distinctive chrome on DeLuxe models It remained powered by the "Stovebolt Six" 194 cu in (3,180 cc) six-cylinder engine, ut now upgraded with a downdraft carburettor and a higher compression ratio to produce 60 hp (45 kW). A three-speed synchro-mesh transmission was fitted and a "Free Wheeling" mode was standard, hich permitted the car to coast when the driver's foot was lifted from the accelerator. The electrical system was 6V Positive ground, ual front (referred to as "Town and Country") horns and a passenger side Brake and Parking light were options that could have been added on at either the dealership or factory.
