Photos in the “1913 Chevrolet Type C - "Classic Six"” Album
Description: This 1913 Type C "Classic Six" is the oldest running Chevrolet. The Type C was Chevy's first car and the only model authorized by Louis Chevrolet himself. (Chevrolet quit when the company's direction shifted to low priced cars). This is a three owner car. It was purchased new out of southern Texas, driven daily until 1936! when it was purchased by the Aldenhaven family, who owned a Chevrolet dealer in Fort Worth. It remained in their collection until 1964, when it was put up for auction. The Alfred P. Sloan Museum's offer (not the highest bid) was accepted, as the the Alenhavens knew their classic would be well cared for.
Two promo shots of Louis Chevrolet and his 1911 Type C prototype close the album.
