Factory Drawings
1931 3-Window Coupe
31Chev 3-Window Coupe Drawing.jpg (15146 bytes) The coupe is built in two types.  One has three windows and the other has five windows.  Both of these coupe bodies are two inches longer and more roomy because of the improved trim construction.  The spacious rear deck compartment has its flush door hinged at the front.  The chrome plated handle has a lock built in.
1931 5-Window Coupe
31Chev 5-Window Coupe Drawing.jpg (15780 bytes) The coupe is built in two types.  One has three windows and the other has five windows.  Both of these coupe bodies are two inches longer and more roomy because of the improved trim construction.  The spacious rear deck compartment has its flush door hinged at the front.  The chrome plated handle has a lock built in.
1931 Coach
31Chev Coach Drawing.jpg (15711 bytes) The coach body is wider at the rear seat.  The additional width is obtained by improving trim construction without sacrificing any actual trim depth.  Both front seats are of the "bucket" type, with the curved back permanently attached to the seat.  This type of seat is much more comfortable than the folding type due to its permanent back construction.  The entire seat is hinged at the front. A compartment for tools is provided under the floor board beneath the front seats.  This permits access to the tools for making adjustments, tire repairs, etc. without disturbing the occupants of the rear seat.
1931 Phaeton
31Chev Phaeton Drawing.jpg (16345 bytes) The phaeton body is two inches longer and 1 3/4 inches wider at the front end.  The rear seat is more comfortable because of its increased rake.  The tonneau is equipped with a robe rail and a foot rest of the same type furnished in sedan bodies.  The tonneau floor is covered with carpet.  The top is of fabric which
harmonizes in color with the body and trim.  A top boot is furnished as standard equipment.
1931 Roadster
31Chev Roadster Drawing.jpg (14993 bytes) The lines of the roadster body are entirely new.  The body is wider at its front end, and two inches longer.  The additional length is in the deck compartment, which is also increased in height.  The moulding line is continuous from the front of the hood to the rear of the deck, which greatly improves the appearance.  The deck with its new flush door and broader appearance is also more beautiful.  The top has been changed in design to appear much narrower and more rakish.
1931 Sedan
31Chev Sedan Drawing.jpg (16730 bytes) The sedan body is 1 1/2 inches longer and 1 inch wider.  The rear seat is considerably roomier because of improved trim structure.  The trim depth is maintained.  The rear compartment is beautifully carpeted and is equipped with a foot rest and robe rail.

1931 Special Sedan
31Chev Special Sedan Drawing.jpg (17043 bytes) The special sedan is equipped with six wire wheels, the two spare wheels being mounted in the fender wells.  Chrome plated cowl lamps and radiator screen are furnished and the rear compartment is equipped with two ash receivers, two arm rests and two assist cords.  All of the rear compartment windows have silk roller curtains of harmonizing color.
1931 Sport Coupe
31Chev Sport Coupe Drawing.jpg (15980 bytes) The sport coupe has five windows and a rumble seat.  The increased length of the rear compartment adds to the comfort of the rumble seat.  Chrome plated cowl lamps and radiator screen are furnished as standard equipment.

1931 Sport Roadster
31Chev Sport Roadster Drawing.jpg (16032 bytes) All of the features of the roadster are also incorporated in the sport roadster.  The increased length and height of the deck compartment provides more knee room in the rumble seat and also makes it more accessible.  This model is equipped with two attractive rubber faced step pads, beautiful chrome plated cowl lamps and radiator screen.

Missing:
5-Passenger Coupe and Landau Phaeton which were introduced later in the year.  Also no sign of the Cabriolet yet.
