1931 Chevrolet Roadster
This beautiful 1931 Chevrolet Roadster belongs to Lydia Mellet of Alberton
still has original all-steel body and chassis with the original wooden frame
there's a dickey-seat that opens up for extra passengers
Running on a 60ís "Chevy SS" front and rear suspension
with disc brakes up front and drums on the rear
four great sounding exhaust pipes
original steel bumpers
love those running boards
beautiful curves of the 1931 Roadster
original lights and horn
Original seats upholstered in leather
a great Chevy roadster of yesteryear
there is a soft-top roof if you need, but feeling the wind in your hair is sheer bliss
love those mudguards

Lydia enjoys the car, the shows and mostly the "rubber necking" while driving her car and encourages more ladies to get involved in the Street Rodding scene.
