hi, a new/novice to the hobby...i hope to acquire a few good leads here.

i have stumbled upon a vehicle i would like to purchase, which appears to be in original condition - from my hours of research this morning, it appears to be a:

1927 Chevrolet Landau 4 Door Sedan (per pics/research/comparisons )

seller is asking $7000, while thats not too much of my concern (although i feel its several thousand high as its NOT immaculate by any means), my immediate questions/concerns are:

- how can i isolate the EXACT make and model?
since the owner doesnt know this information as no title is available from what she says, it was inheritated 15yrs ago and nothings been done

- where can i get stats on this vehicle?
potential value, model information, details, books, charts, diagrams, production information, etc.

- is their an existing aftermarket for this vehicle, specifically the body/mechanical/electrica l parts i am sure it will need?
if so, recommendations would be fantastic

- any suggestions on how to locate service providers, shops, mechanics, etc. on this particular vehicle?

thanks for your feedback and i appreciate any input received!

Welcome to Chevytalk!

Firstly, are there any data plates on the car? There should be a Fisher Body plate identifying the Job Number. Also the Car Number? The 1927 will be a Capitol series AA.

There should be an online parts list in the khardy collection at the top of this forum's page. Otherwise, do contact my friend Ken Kaufmann:

and post some pictures if you can...or send them to me for posting!

An immaculate '27 Chevy can be had for 7 grand?
The prices on these sure have dropped!

There were three Sedans in 1927. The standard sedan with rear quarter windows but no landau irons produced all model year. The Landau sedan similar to the standard but with landau irons only early in production year. The Imperial Landau with landau irons but without the quarter windows produced late in production year. The Imperial Landau is by far the most valuable of the three.
