1931 Chevrolet AE Independence
Its Wise To Choose A Six!
As the 1920s continued to roll-on, Chevrolet abandoned its attempt to compete head-on with Ford's Model T.
Ford was able to drop their prices annually, whereas Chevrolets steadily rose. Chevrolet continued to move their product mid-market and possessed a degree of refinement lacking in the Model T.
In 1929, Chevrolet introduced its new range powered by the famous 194ci (3.2-liter) Stovebolt overhead-valve six-cylinder engine.
The 1931 Independence received a higher, larger radiator along with a bowed tie bar carrying the headlights. Its hood gained vertical louvers on the raised side panels and wire wheels were now standard.
Power and performance were continuations of the year before but with considerable refinement of the new-for-1930 six-cylinder engine that was refined and brought up to about 50 horsepower for 1931.
Chevrolet maintained its market segment with stylish designs in a range of colors and a growing list of options.
