Throughout its 100-year history, Chevrolet has created hundreds of different cars and trucks. Many have their passionate fans and collectors. Some stand out as iconic — personifying the spirit, style and dependability that have defined Chevrolet.
So with apologies in advance to fans whose favorites missed the cut, here is a selection of iconic cars and trucks from our first century in the United States. The GM Heritage Center Collection includes representative examples of most of these vehicles.
In late 1913, just two years after its founding, Chevrolet introduced the 1914 “Royal Mail” roadster. It was the first Chevy to wrap almost every Chevrolet-specific attribute into one car. Contemporary and jaunty, the Royal Mail had great visual appeal. Its reliable 171-cid 4-cylinder engine had overhead valves, a premium design that contributed to its relatively high power rating. The car’s moderate $750 list price included a top, windshield and speedometer — items that had been accessories on more expensive cars just a few years before. In retrospect, it seems fitting that the Royal Mail was one of the first models to carry the Chevrolet bowtie badge.
