Wouldn't you love to have it.









When was the last time you saw a 6 volt battery?







You'll LOVE this one. What got me was the seat



covers... Remember??? Well you youngsters



won't, but us oldsters will, betcha!!!







The oil filter is the blue can with yellow top,



you could stick a roll of toilet paper in there.



The air filter is the oil bath type, the bottom



portion is filled with oil and when you cleaned



it you replaced the oil and clean the sump and



mesh wire filter This is awesome!







1950 Chevrolet Club Coupe, 437 original miles,



only three owners. Check out the dealer installed



"oil filter", the rusty carb, and you can even see



the spark plugs if they need to be changed.







Purchased new by Mr. And Mrs. Jessie



Trueblood of Modesto , CA . Shortly after



purchasing this car, Mr. Trueblood took a



day off to go fishing. While waiting for



the "big one" to bite he witnessed a



woman fall out of her boat. Mr. Trueblood



jumped in to help, only to fall victim of a



fatal heart attack. Mrs. Trueblood returned



the car home and placed it in the garage for



the next 12 years.The odometer reading at



that time (1962) was 413 miles.







Mrs. Trueblood lived next door to a used car lot owned by Mr.



William E. Wilson (now 81 years old). Mr. Wilson spoke with



her frequently and often told her he would like to buy the car



for himself to keep. In 1962 the time had come. Mrs. Trueblood



told Mr. Wilson she needed a car for her bookkeeper who didn't



really care for the old Chevy and would prefer a Rambler. No



problem - Mr. Wilson went down to the local Rambler dealer



and bought a brand new one for $1,650.00 ($100.00 over cost)



and made the swap.







He then took the Chevy home and parked



it with 433 actual miles. And there it sat



for the next 45 years, occasionally being



started and moved in and out of the garage.



In 2007 Mr. Wilson decided to sell the car



and started spreading the word around



Modesto that the old Chevy, with 433



miles on it, was for sale. Many had heard



about the car, but hardly anyone had ever



laid eyes on it. In fact, according to Mr.



Wilson, he only showed the car to about



five people in 45 years. Word spread



quickly about the car and soon a buyer



arrived ready and willing to pay the



$60,000 asking price. When Mr. Wilson



told the story of this car he complained



heavily of the "capital gains" tax he was



required to pay and wished he had never



sold it. As of this writing, Mr. Wilson is



still alive and well in Modesto and can



verify the miles and originality of this car.



Simply put, this is a true 100% factory



original survivor (that includes the air in



the tires). This old Chevy now has 437



original miles and is most likely the



world's lowest mileage 1950 Chevy.
