Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

Celebrating its 90th birthday, this car is ready to go out and have a good time! It just needs adriver. Might that be you? Its a Sport Cabriolet so its ready to put some wind in your hair and a smile on your face as you head out on the town in 1928 high style. Check it out. This car is one of the first projects to come out of GMs Art and Color studio. They had just created the LeSalle and incorporated some of the lessons learned there into the AB. The hood was longer and straighter than the 27 model, and it had a lower profile. This one is a beautiful two-tone with the body dressed up in Red with Black fenders and trim complimenting it nicely. The Cabriolet was actually introduced mid-year, and the folding roof was one of the things that put Chevy back ahead of Ford in sales compared to the Model A for 28. Yes, they were serious rivals even back then. The difference in appearance is largely in the front with a narrower grill and a different treatment to the front bumper with black and silver presenting a nice look. The black molding running down the side of the car also helps the car look sportier and those Red disc wheels look like they came off of a Bonneville speed record car. Open the door and you will find a nicely restored interior that was considered well appointed for its time, which happens to be the same year that bread sliced and wrapped by machine first became available. The door panels are simple squares of black with a window crank and door handle, although the brass screws attaching it are a nice touch. A nice bench provides a comfortable and roomy perch in the tall and spacious cab. A wooden steering wheel is mounted on a 4-spoke hub with a lever to adjust the engine timing for starting or power in the center, and the shifter for the manual transmission rises tall from the floor. The dash is red with a black oval panel in the center that contains the control lever for the lights, a unique barrel type speedometer, and two sweep gauges for voltage and oil pressure. There is a ventilating windshield that you can tilt open if you wish, or you could put the convertible top down for some open-air motoring. That streamlined hood is piano hinged, so go ahead, open both sides for a good look. There you will find a 171 cubic inch, 4-cylinder engine which, true to the great tradition of constant improvements in search of more horsepower, the factory installed aluminum pistons in to bump the compression up, larger valves for better flow and a revised carburetor to produce 35 horsepower at 2200 rpm. The ignition system has new plugs and wires, the fuel lines are new, and a 6-volt electrical system is kept charged up with an original style generator. That big upright radiator keeps everything running cool while power flows back through a 3-speed manual transmission to a solid rear axle on leaf springs. The front end is a drop axle on leaf springs and 4-wheel brakes were a welcome advance incorporated into this car. The tires are 4.50 x 4.75-21s on those beautiful red dish wheels with black hubs. Top up or top down, this car will put a smile on your face, as well as on the faces of those who see you driving down the road. Come on down and check it out.
