1926 Chevrolet Superior V Buckboard

Photographed at the 2018 Bay to Birdwood Rally, West Beach, South Australia.

The Chevrolet Superior series for 1926 was named V.

The Superior V was powered by a 171ci in-line 6 cylinder engine which produced 26hp at 2,000 rpm.

The Superior platform was shared by other models in the GM stable, including Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Oakland and GMC.

A development of the earlier Horse and Carriage vehicles, buckboards were an important tool in 1920's U.S.A., being a rural workhorse on millions of farms and properties, and often used as delivery vehicles in cities.

Due to the rugged nature of their role, and the damage and daily abuse they routinely encountered, buckboards are amongst the more rare types of vintage vehicles left today.

    • Well, you've got 2 years to plan a visit to the next Bay to Birdwood! If you tell me that you're coming, I'll have a car entered, one way or another! :)

    • I'll have to think about that! For years I wanted to go to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but after seeing the Isle of Man TT for the first time a couple of years ago, that might be my next trip overseas!
