Chevrolet had briefly upstaged Ford when they introduced the 1927 Series AA. While the Model T was still in production, Chevrolet’s revolutionary overhead valve 171 cubic inch four-cylinder engine was mated to a sliding-fork transmission and conventional three-pedal arrangement which made it infinitely more simple to drive compared to the rather agricultural Model T.

For 1928, the model was renamed National Series AB and freshened with a longer wheelbase and facelifted styling from the newly formed Art and Colour Section at General Motors. Chevrolet continued its momentum, and even faced with the all-new Ford Model A, continued to lead the sales chart..

This 1928 Chevrolet National AB Roadster is a very fine example of this uncommon early Chevy. It is an attractive, great running example that has been very well maintained by its most recent owner. Believed to have been originally purchased for a woman as a gift from a suitor, it is unclear if the new Chevrolet achieved the desired goal. Wearing a desirable body style, this rare and pleasing Chevrolet roadster is well suited for driving and enjoyment.
