They have a picture of each car in the collection along with information on each car. The early cars are really beautiful and there is a lot of interesting informatioon on each car. Unless you can read Dutch you have to use Google Translate in order to read the information. Unfortunately there are no Chevrolets! Now all I have to do is convince the boss that we need to visit this museum.


Louwman is really critical on what to put into his museum and what not. If you know how many interesting cars he sold after the takeover of the Rosso Bianco... I have seen two Alfa Romeo 33 race cars being sold for example.
I think he has no run-of-the-mill cars in his collection. I have seen a few cars that were not really exclusive (DeLorean DMC12, Triumph Renown). I cannot remember there was a Chevy indeed. In the Autotron was a Chevrolet, but that museum has gone bankrupt, bought by Louwman and he has sold the Chevy again (he did keep some 2 or 3 cars if I am informed well). I have not seen many Chevy's in any museum here. A few Corvettes maybe. Possibly a few in the museum in Joure...

Some years ago, there was an interesting museum in Bergeyk, in a southern province. They sold nearly every car they had on display and interest came from many countries. Unfortunately, they could not keep the business profitable and all the cars were sold for low prices! They had some very interesting and rare vehicles on display (and for sale), but also a lot of less exclusive ones. It is a pitty the museum is not anymore.

I hope you can convince the boss and I am sure you won't be disappointed! Would be nice to hear from you if you got there!

Hello!

And here the last cars from 1932 that are currently in my archives.

Coach, is this de Deluxe coach?


Sedan or special sedan? How to recognize the special sedan?


A landau phaeton.


The Landau phaeton I previously (erroneously) put in the '31s.


So my questions are:
1: Is the first one a Deluxe?
2: is the second one a sedan or special sedan and what's the difference in appearance?

Thanks!

1. Coach

2. The vehicle appears to be a Special Sedan

3. The easiest way to tell the difference between a 1932 Sedan and a 1932 Special Sedan is to check the Job Number on the cowl tag. The Sedan has a Job Number of 32559 and a Special Sedan has a Job Number of 32569.

Thanks again!

I hope it is okay to put new pics in this topic as soon as they are about to be put in my archives.

I forget to ask something. Does the five-passenger coupe resemble the landau phaeton, but with a metal roof? Have not seen one yet.

The easiest way to learn about the different models is to purchase a 1929-32 Chevrolet parts book, the Chevrolet Service News for each year (12 issues per year), sales brochures for each year, Engineering Features for each year and etc. All of the above and more are available from the Filling Station in Lebanon, Oregon. That way you will have reference material at your finger tips when you need information about a specific model.

Can't tell for sure on the first three photos. Tire size, shape of instruments are best way to determine if '29 or '30. The left hand tail light on photos suggests '30 for them but not definitive.

Photo four and five are Deluxe 1931 Cabriolets and six is a '32 Special Sedan.

Thanks! I know it is hardly possible to tell the '29 and '30 apart, but is there somebody who can or can do an educated guess? I remember Junkyard Dog was quite good at this.

I should have added front wheel brake linkage to the difference between '29 and '30. Can't see them in the photos either. Only clue is rear tail light stand.

The windshield on a 1929 is vertical whereas on a 1930 the windshield has a 10 degree slant.

It is really hard to tell by the photos, but the first photo appears to be a 1929 and the next two photos look like 1930 models.

I agree, it looks like the first one has the ridges around the window reveal and no sloped windshield and the next two do not. Nice photos though.

That second '31 Cabriolet seems to have it's top irons on the wrong sides....
