Everything was going great!! The economy was booming and people felt they were flying high!! Then came October 29th and the bottom fell out of the stock market and so started a horrible depression!! The 1929 Chevrolet Landau you might say suffered a similar situation!! It rose and fell in that only about 300 of this model were produced! It just was not well received in spite of the fact it was equipped with the new Stove Bolt Six engine and complete new body styling. The rear quarter of the body folded down like a convertible, but that just wasn’t much fun. If you wanted a top that folded down, you got a roadster or a phaeton! Since there were so few produced, this model is a rare commodity these days!! I took this picture while attending a national rally of the Vintage Chevrolet Club of America in Rapid City, S.D. in 1996.
