    Default 1926 Chevy Boattail

    Hello Everyone,

    I wanted to reach out and see if anyone knows or has any info regarding this car.
    image0095.jpgimage0094.jpg

    Only info I have is it is a 1926 Chevrolet Series V Superior. Apparently the boattail back was a dealer installed option. The boattail was made by a company called Mercury Body Company.

    Im looking for any info that has dimensions or if anyone has an image from the side or from straight on. I want to make a scale model of it but with no info or dimensions it will be hard to make it accurately I only need basic info like wheelbase, wheel diameter, width, height.


    Thanks in advance for any help,
    Bret

    Ok so I still havent found a whole lot out about the car but I did find a plan for a Auburn "Boattail" Speedster car in Wood magazine that is similar. I think I can reshape it to look more like the Chevy.
