WE HAVE ENTIRE HISTORY SINCE THIS CAR WAS PURCHASED BRAND NEW! PURCHASED BRAND NEW IN 1931 BY BERYL ROE OF MILAN, OH. THIS CHEVY WAS PURCHASED AS A SECOND VEHICLE AND DRIVEN SPARINGLY, WHILE GARAGE KEPT FROM DAY ONE. IT WAS PASSED ALONG TO BERYL'S BROTHER, CHANT ROE OF MILAN, OHIO IN THE 1950'S. CHANT DROVE IT PERIODICALLY WHILE MAINTAINING IT FOR SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE LEAVING IT TO HIS DAUGHTER, HELEN LANDIS, OF CANTON, OHIO IN 1967. HELEN DROVE IT MINIMALLY THEN PARKED IT IN HER GARAGE, STARTING IT AND DRIVING IT PERIODICALLY OVER THE YEARS. IN 1980, THE CAR WAS PASSED ALONG TO HELEN'S SON, BRUCE LANDIS OF ROOTSTOWN, OHIO. BRUCE PARKED THE CAR IN HIS GARAGE, ALSO PERIODICALLY STARTING ITOVER THE YEARS AND DRIVING IT VERY SPARINGLY. WEACQUIREDTHE CAR FROM BRUCE'S WIDOW IN SEPTEMBER OF 2016.

Check out our unsolicited feedback fromsatisfied buyers. The feedback speaks for itself!
Pleaseremember our cars are classics and most of our inventory is over 40 years old. They're built to drive and do develop drips from long periods of sitting due to expanding and contracting seals and gaskets. It's seldom that we come across a classic that's completely drip free. We do our best to describe our inventory in full detail, to include pictures and video; however, due tothe age of these cars, we're unable to offer a warranty. While we only deal in vehicles that are in quality condition, we always prefer the buyer take the time to check the vehicle out in person or arrange for a third party vehicle inspection. We strive to make our customers happy and prideourselveson positive feedback.
