Debuting in January of 1928, Chevrolet’s National Model AB introduced new features like four-wheel brakes, a thermostat, indirect instrument lighting and Alemite fittings to make chassis lubrication easier. Powered by a 171-cu.in. four-cylinder engine rated at 35 horsepower, the Chevrolet National was available in a total of eight body styles, ranging from two-door roadster through four-door imperial landau. This 1928 Chevrolet National Utility Coupe, for sale on Hemmings.com, may be among the nicest remaining examples, especially when the asking price is factored in. Described as being in excellent condition with a reupholstered interior, all gauges and lights are said to be functional. The only modern amenity appears to be a six-volt fuel pump, added to make starting a simpler task. From the seller’s description:
Take a long look at this beautiful example of Chevrolet history, this remarkable 87-year-young Chevy Utility coupe is in excellent condition. All gauges work as they should, speedometer shows just under 36,000 miles, which I believe to be original. All lights including the stop light work, also the “ahooga” horn. Interior has been reupholstered, absolutely no rust, and the wood is rock solid. Engine compartment is very clean as is the underside of the car. Last year for the 171-cu.in. engine, and it runs just like it should. I’ve added a six-volt fuel pump to help pull the gas from the rear tank to assist in starting. This is a beautiful car for all you “bow tie” lovers.
