Vintage Chevy Wears Sheet Metal Like A Million Bucks

The 1930s were a great time for the Chevrolet automotive corporation that we all know in love.

All together, the bill totals about $1 million which is sort of a hard number to swallow even when you understand how much classic car building can you cost. Recently, it was covered by Sean from AutotopiaLA because the owner has got something special planned for the car.

That is to unveil the vehicle to the first for the first time to the global automotive industry sometime this year.
