1926 Chevy Boattail
I wanted to reach out and see if anyone knows or has any info regarding this car.
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,

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.

You'll find a great buch of toymakers in this section of the forum, very helpful & knowledgeable blokes & ladies for the most.
Make sure you show off your handiwork as everyone loves a photo, especially WIP photos with build notes.
Do you have a photo of the 1926 Chev Boat-Tail Roadster on the farm in Virden, Manitoba, please.
Enjoy the forum...
Enjoy your woodwork.
