This 1953 Chevrolet was purchased new from Wigton-Bailey, Inc., of New Lexington, Ohio, by Evelyn E. Singer of Linton, Indiana, who paid $1,847.41. Original registrations and inspection certificates indicate that Ms. Singer maintained the Chevrolet until the late 1970s, when it was acquired by Tom and Helen Higgins of Jasonville, Indiana.

As recounted by his collection’s longtime manager, the current owner used an identical 210 Deluxe two-door sedan to move his family from West Virginia to California decades ago. After finding considerable business success on the West Coast, the owner never forgot the humble Chevy. One day, while driving on a business trip, he saw Mr. Higgins drive past him in this car, identical to that of his memories—and wasted no time turning around, giving chase, and eventually catching up with the sedan and, on the roadside, convincing its owner to sell!

The car remained in the collection until recently, with its third owners, and aside from one repaint in its original color scheme, it is unrestored and very well preserved inside, outside, and underneath. Its factory cloth interior is quite attractive and in fine condition, down to the cloth windlacing in the doors; the original Safety Plate glass remains in the windows. Befitting its everyman status, it is a low-option automobile, with only a heater, dashboard clock, and fog lights; the transmission is the standard three-speed, and there are no power accessories.

Accompanied by its original sales paperwork to Ms. Singer, registrations from its first and second owners, and original brochures and a service manual, this is a charming old 210 Deluxe that will delight its next owner. As a bonus, they will be able to add it to their collection without chasing it down on the freeway.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/hf19.
