Chevrolet In 1924 –  William S Knudsen became president of Chevrolet and joined the GM Board of Directors.

The first non US or Canadian assembled GM vehicle arrived off the new assembly line In Copenhagen, Denmark on January 7th . . A Chevy Ute.

 

In the Shareholders 1924 Annual Report. The Chevrolet strategy of “A car for every purse and purpose” was announced

Chevrolet turned out plenty more cars like this nicely restored example of a 1924 Chevy car. It is great fun driving a little bit of history around with great people at a great location. . On a fine day. Nice car Bob. . .

    Thanks Tubby for your beautiful photo of a beautiful Chev. Tourer. This advert. was placed in a Melbourne paper, when my Uncle, John Pascoe Dalliston, sold up in the 1950s to move to live in Canada. Now I’m off to find a Whippet with a dicky seat and a Morris Minor that we owned in Ipswich when I was a pre-schooler. My Dad, Tom Dalliston, was a spray painter in at Evans in Ipswich (and later at Cresswells Ford dealership in Warwick) and he painted the Whippet ‘puce’. One school holidays, Dad and Mum drove us kids to the Atherton Tableland and back in the grey Morris. We camped at road stops I still can’t find on maps! I hope the advertised Tourer is still in ‘good order’ somewhere!
    fun always
