I've recently inherited a 1916 Chevrolet 490 Touring... mint condition... after the recent loss of my father.

I'm unfortunately looking to sell this beautiful vehicle and have no idea where to start.

My father removed the original engine and fuel tank (which I still have) and converted the car to have an electric lithium ion motor.

Below is the link to his website/blog for the conversion...

If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!!!

Or even better...if any one is interested in buying this masterpiece... please feel free to contact me by email at

Any for sale needs to be put in the ad forum.

Because of the age of the car, I think any serious interest is going to come only from the dedicated collector/restorer community. For that reason, I recommend that you include all removed stock parts as a bundle with the car and list a price for the complete package.

If you don't have a specific price in mind, you might want to check on Hemmings to see how much similar cars are selling for.


Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
