Chevrolet’s 6-cylinder overhead-valve engine, introduced in 1929, provided smooth, economical power. Upgrades for 1932 included a synchromesh transmission that helped eliminate embarrassing gear clash.
Arriving in the midst of the Great Depression, the 1932 Chevrolets were advertised as “The Great American Value”. Styling of the 1932 models helped make Chevy America’s favorite car that year. In 1932, the Chevrolet Sport Roadster was priced at a $445.
