This 1930 Chevrolet is a very well‑travelled car. According to a 2017 inspection by the American Automobile Club of Great Britain, it was built at General Motors' Oshawa plant in Canada for export to Uruguay in right‑hand drive Phaeton (touring body) form. As this body style was in decline, only 1713 were produced during 1930, costing $495.

The 50bhp 3.2‑litre six‑cylinder car seems to have stayed in South America until around 1990, when it travelled to Germany. It came to the UK in 2017 and was allocated the numberplate BF8303 by the DVLA in July of that year.

The engine number of R2167191 corresponds to a right‑hand drive unit, with a casting date of November 1930, so is believed to be the car's original motor.  

The history folder includes the V5C, some documentation from Uruguay regarding the shipment to Germany, some German paperwork, some British bills, a copy of the dating letter from the American Automobile Club of Great Britain, HRMC correspondence regarding the car's import into the UK and a photocopy of a book chapter chronicling the 1930 Chevrolet Universal AD Series. The recent invoices include four 19in Waymaster WM30 tyres fitted in 2017 (£460.80), a rebuilt brake master cylinder in 2017 (£111.90) and some engine parts during 2020 ($318.50, from the USA).

The charming old Chevrolet looks to still be in original and solid, albeit patinated condition. While the speedometer has been disconnected and removed, it is present with the car and records 96,957 miles.
