1914 Chevrolet Series H Royal Mail Roadster

Third Floor - History

Designed for affordability, the fourcylinder H-series was credited with saving Chevrolet from bankruptcy and was the first to use the nowfamiliar bowtie emblem. One of two body styles available, the Royal Mail roadster was the first Chevrolet to cost less than $1,000 and was offered alongside the four-seat Baby Grand Touring. Chevrolet became the dominant division of General Motors thanks to the low-priced Series H, eventually surpassing archrival Ford in domestic sales.
