Looking to find a new home for this old gal. She is all original. She needs work and has been sitting for about 9 years in storage with a brief stint outside. Engine lost a rod on # 5 cylinder when it was parked. Tranny perfect. Will need new rims (rusty inside), tires and there is some rot on both sides at the rear body mounts. Tires sill hold air but not safe to drive on. Chrome is starting to suffer a bit. Time and finances ran out since the advent of children. The car interior is in very good shape as it had been restored and has been driven a fair bit up until the engine started to knock and it did not make it home. I would like to see it kept intact but that isn't my call. Serious inquires only post back to me or my email cressindon@gmail .com. Best offer, not sure what it is worth at this point but I do have lots of extras to go with it including the column select radio.

You will want to post some photos if possible to help garner some interest.  Good thing i have found is there are lots of NOS parts still available for 1942 Chevys.  Even alot of chrome.  With the war I think they made the parts for the cars but production of cars got cut short so they made too many parts up front for dealer stock considering the number of actual cars built. It would explain why the dealers always had extra 42 parts in stock but not much for other years.

Working on getting some current photos of it. Really do not want to part with it. However since it now is in a storage unit since the divorce and my 2nd wife has no interest in it and would rather have the $ not go to the storage place I think it needs to go while it is still salvageable. Another couple of years and the kids will be out the door and I would have the time to spend on it but holding out that long isn't going to be possible.

I am located in Maryland, Eldersburg to be precise. As far as price that is objective at this point. Still a bit on the fence about selling. Originally I paid $2500 for it as it had been sitting in a garage for several years and had not been run for some time. It had been semi restored and moved to MD from the Carolina's. The elderly lady that owned it at the time was a customer of mine who's husband had passed several years earlier. I was actually looking at a 1936 Nash she had in her other garage but she had promised that to her son. This vehicle was in her main garage and in her terms was in her way as she had almost hit it several times with her daily driver going in and out. Bear in mind she was 85 years young at the time. Anyhow I have put a good bit of work into it, temporarily lost it in a divorce, got it back in less than stellar condition when my ex got very ill. It has been sitting in storage since which has been about 5 years now. I will post some pictures as soon as I get some current ones which may make this easier to figure out. As of now I would consider it in class 3/4 condition. Salvageable but not cheaply.
