In 1932 America was in the middle of the worst depression in history. Bonny and Clyde had just robbed their first bank and Al Capone had been arrested for tax evasion.

General Motors realised they had to produce their 1932 Chevy with as many attractive features as possible if they were to sell in this depressed market. They took design features from the Cadillac and made the Confederate.

With its economical 6 cylinder 3.2 litre engine, synchromesh transmission and free-wheeling for down-hill economy, the public bought 313,400 Chevys that year, selling even more than Ford.

Prices started at an unbelievable $445, (100 pounds in those days), with this top of the range Super Deluxe model selling for just $630, compared to a Cadillac price of “thousands”!

Our 1932 Chevrolet Confederate Delux Sedan was purchased in New Jersey, USA in 2007 and is lovingly looked after by her owner, Bruce.

The registration number is KIW 1066 (King William 1066), a fitting plate for East Sussex.

Our 1932 Chevrolet Confederate Delux Sedan has been used in the Film “Me and Orson Welles” with an appearance in one of Jonathan Creek’s TV series.
