Bob's Cars: '52 Chevrolet
scan really doesn't do this car justice. I got it from the second owner in
1971 while I was living in California. The first owner must have been the
prototypical little old lady from Pasadena. The car was in pretty good shape, with
about 60,000 miles showing on the odometer.
But the glove box was the real treasure!
A nearly complete set of papers came with the car. The original sales
invoice, the instruction card for the jack, the warranty for the battery, and of course,
the owner's manual. When I sold the car I kept all the paperwork.
With splash lubrication the oil
pressure on this "Cast Iron Wonder" generally read 5 psi. After I rebuilt
the carburetor it got 15 mpg.
