Oh, the Roaring 20s. They were a time of prosperity and relative calm, as the world continued its celebration of the end of the War to End All Wars, though a rumbling was quietly creeping into the world again. Until the depths of the Great Depression reared their ugly head a few years later, the United States enjoyed a few care-free years, and auto companies capitalized on that. Chevrolet was excited to roll out its 1925 Series K Superior, and customers were excited to enjoy its many improvements from other models. Focusing on these improvements, Chevrolet was proud to spotlight the many improvements this model had over its predecessor, the 1924 Series F Superior.
With a 103 inch wheelbase, the 1925 Chevrolet Series K Superior contained a 171 cubic inch four-cylinder engine which produces only 26 horsepower. The model came in five different body styles: a roadster, touring, coupe, coach, and sedan were all available to suit customers’ needs. Depending on a few factors, such as the body style, the Series K weighed in at anywhere between 1,690 and 2,020 pounds. Although this car was far more expensive than its main competition, the Ford Model T, (in fact, it cost nearly double) it was still quite popular.
Over half a million units of the 1925 Chevrolet Series K Superior were produced, and the car took its place as the second best selling car in the United States. Prices for a new model at the time ranged from $525 and $825. The touring and roadster body styles came with the wood-spoke wheels that are rarities today. Indeed, this classic car is one that will be a favorite among car restorers for many years to come.
