When was the last time you saw a 6 volt battery?
You'll love this one. What got me was the seat covers... Remember???
Well you youngsters won't, but us oldsters will, betcha!!! The oil filter
is the blue can with yellow top, you could stick a roll of toilet paper
The air filter is the oil bath type, the bottom portion is filled with
oil and when you cleaned it you replaced the oil and clean the sump and
mesh wire filter This is awesome!
1950 Chevrolet Club Coupe, 437 original miles, only three owners. Check
out the dealer installed "oil filter", the rusty carb, and you can even
see the spark plugs if they need to be changed.
Purchased new by Mr. And Mrs. Jessie Trueblood of Modesto, CA. Shortly
after purchasing this car, Mr. Trueblood took a day off to go fishing.
While waiting for the "big one" to bite he witnessed a woman fall out
of her boat. Mr. Trueblood jumped in to help, only to fall victim of a
fatal heart attack.
Mrs. Trueblood returned the car home and placed it in the garage for the
next 12 years.
The odometer reading at that time (1962) was 413 miles.
 Mrs. Trueblood lived next door to a used car lot owned by Mr. William
E. Wilson (now 81 years old). Mr. Wilson spoke with her frequently and
often told her he would like to buy the car for himself to keep.
In 1962 the time had come. Mrs. Trueblood told Mr. Wilson she needed a
car for her bookkeeper who didn't really care for the old Chevy and would
prefer a Rambler.
No problem - Mr. Wilson went down to the local Rambler dealer and bought
a brand new one for $1,650.00 ($100.00 over cost) and made the swap.
He then took the Chevy home and parked it with 433 actual miles. And there
it sat for the next 45 years, occasionally being started and moved in
and out of the garage.
In 2007, Mr. Wilson decided to sell the car and started spreading the
word around Modesto that the old Chevy, with 433 miles on it, was for
sale. Many had heard about the car, but hardly anyone had ever laid eyes
on it. In fact, according to Mr. Wilson, he only showed the car to about
five people in 45 years.
Word spread quickly about the car and soon a buyer arrived ready and willing
to pay the $60,000 asking price.
When Mr. Wilson told the story of this car he complained heavily of the
"capital gains" tax he was required to pay and wished he had never sold
As of this writing, Mr. Wilson is still alive and well in Modesto and
can verify the miles and originality of this car. Simply put, this is
a true 100% factory original survivor (that includes the air in the tires).
This old Chevy now has 437 original miles and is most likely the world's
lowest mileage 1950 Chevy
