The marketplace was already full of cars selling in the same price class of the Chevy 6, and the car was a commercial failure--even today, seldom ever seen at AACA meets, even in museums.


At the VCCA's 100th Anniversary in Flint, The Sloan Museum's 1912 or 1913 (There is discussion about when it was built) was on display, As well as this 1914 Light Six... believed to be the only one in existence. I believe that of Classic Sixes, the only two known are the one in Flint and the Oldest Chevrolet, found in Alberta Canada. If you know of any others, Let me know

sorry we are still backed up in the mold prep part of the process i am a little worried about the rarity, the delicateness of a kit on loan but it is next in the pipeline

Therapy ? Build a model car . When I was a kid , my parents gave me a kit . I had the attention span of a gnat . No patience and could not sit still . I cannot sit still these days too . I trembled (still do) and shook . My Third Grade Teacher talked to my Mother about the new(ly) diagnosis of Hypertension . I was a textbook example . I got hooked on building Model Cars and found my place in Society . "Try it , you'll like it ."    

   BTW , I am patiently waiting for you to cast one for me . I build replicas of everything that moves in 1/25 ; 1/24 when I am forced to .       Thanx ..
