Description

Provenance can mean everything when it comes to old cars. Many want to drive around in the Chevrolet that was once owned privately by Per-Albin Hansson.
The car was registered on Per-Albin Hansson's wife Sigrid and was certainly a way of avoiding attention. Perhaps not so politically correct for a Social Democratic party leader to own an American luxury car at that time.
The Chevrolet Master Deluxe was manufactured between 1933 – 1942 and it belonged to the more expensive models in Chevrolet's range. It has undergone a careful renovation by Bengt Augustsson in Eskilstuna.
Per Albin Hansson was a highly esteemed leader of the Social Democrats during 1925-1946 and Prime minister for ten years 1936 – 1946.
