I Originally acquired this 31' in the mid 1970's by trading a restored 1958 Corvette for it even up! At that time the 31 Chev. Coupe was actually worth more than the Corvette! I gave this to my father so he and my mother could go to car shows and enjoy what car shows offer and take my aunt and uncle in the rumble seat! This car brought many years of enjoyment and pleasure to everyone. Now it sits in dry storage in mid Ohio since my dad passed away and has not been run in several years. The AE Model is known as as "INDEPENDENCE" Model. This one has the Rumble Seat and ROLL DOWN REAR WINDOW so the Rumble Seat Occupants could talk to persons in the Cab! Before he died dad had the interior and seat professionally recovered in a Red Fabric shown in the photos and was never used. To my knowledge nothing is missing! Some items such as door handles, cowl lamps, bumpers need to be put back on the car and are included with the car including the spare tire with metal wheel cover. The car when I acquired was tan with dark brown fenders. Dad painted the car black, not done professionally and no body work was done. This is just as it was in the 1970's except for the upholstery and the black painted exterior. This car has a clear Ohio title in my name ready to transfer to the new owner. The title show 53,350 miles as actual when the title was transfered to my dad in 1995. Prior to that time the car was in my name.
