  • Off the top of my head I’d say very late 1940s, very early 1950s.

    Could be earlier than that – here’s a photo of my grandfather working on a ’41 Chevy Special DeLuxe, which has a similar front end design:

    The best part about are the parallel parking feelers on the rear bumper.

    Why go through the effort of having such a nice clean car only to screw it up by making it’s rear end look like a catfish.

      Those aren’t parallel parking feelers. They were meant to help in keeping two cars’ bumpers from getting locked together when parking. This was a common problem in the days when nearly all cars had exposed steel bumpers.

    Looks like a ’53 or ’54 Chevy my uncle has

    PoP, I hope that is your CaBi that you dismounted to take these photos. Otherwise, someone was not to smart to leave it unlocked in the middle of the sidewalk like that. What happens if one of those gets stolen while in your posession anyway?

      Hahaha, that’s what I was thinking too! (Re. the first two sentences.)

  • spookiness

    I think this is a 1949 Chrysler, not a Chevrolet.
    I though Chevy at first, but something about that grill is weird, and the tail lights are sort of like later Cadillacs, not Chevys.

      +1 1949 Chrysler Windsor. Front parking lamps on the 1950 are a little more square.

    I think POP should do series on sweet bicycles similar to this series. It would be awesome to see all the things people do to their bikes around the city.

    • Prince Of Petworth

      You’re in luck – I have a sweet bike posting tonight!

        I totally saw you taking those pictures… I was like “why is that guy taking all those pictures”, then I thought “That’s something pop would do.”
