This 1954 Chevrolet was a Business Coupe. It was the cheapest Chevrolet available in 1954 and wildly practical. The backseat was for sample cases, bibles, encyclopedias, traveling medicine show, tent revivalists, tin siding, carpet baggers and Fuller brushes. There never was a backseat, per se. I recovered the tattered plywood with cracked ice dinette set style vinyl as it is sanitary and attractive.
