In 1922, the Chevrolet was available in two series and was available in colors other than black. At that time,
all Fords were black. The Chevrolet was a popular alternative to the Model T. It had an overhead valve, four-cylinder
engine, a conventional transmission, and a self-starter. Although more than 250,000 Chevrolets were produced in North
America for the 1922 model year, few survive because they are less well remembered than the Model T.
