This old 1929 Chevrolet was one of the many variants in the Chevy Stable. There were 3 and 5 window coupes, drop-hoods, 4 door sedans and LDVs (or pickups). 1929 was an interesting year. In Chicago the great gangster shootout now know as the Valentine’s Day Massacre took place. Motorola made the very first car radio. The very first Academy Awards were presented and the Wall Street Stock Market Crash occurred in October 1929. The musical “Gold Diggers of Broadway” was released on 29 August that year. In November 1929 the Museum of Modern Art in New York opened it’s doors for the first time. This oil painting of a 5 door Chevrolet coupe is on a canvas covered board is 9 x 12 in or 230 x 305 mm
