DescriptionDrawing for an advertisement
InterpretationIn 1922 Chevrolet featured standard transmissions, an oil gauge on the dash, a supplementary hand control for the throttle, and triple-baked enamel on both body and fenders. This model was introduced in May 1922. It had a 14 cubic foot rear luggage compartment, which could comfortably accommodate a 36-inch steamer trunk. Because of this storage space it was recommended to salesmen and professional businessmen.
