Chevrolet produced 1,001,820 Chevrolet vehicles for 1927. Their vehicle was the Capitol Series AA which featured a new radiator shell and fuller crown fenders. Mechanical changes included a parking brake release and a rectangular brake and clutch pedal. A new bodystyle joined the lineup - a Sports Cabriolet. Other body styles options included the roadster, tourer, coupe, coach, sedan, and landau sedan. An Imperial Landau was added in May.

Powering the Chevrolet Capitol was a four-cylinder, overhead valve engine that displaced 171 cubic-inches and delivering just over 25 horsepower. They had a three-speed selective sliding gearbox and rode on steel disc wheels.

Pricing began at $525 for the 4-door tourer and 2-door roadster, and rose to $745 for the landau sedan.

This 1927 Woodie began life as a rolling chassis that was shipped to the Martin-Parry Corporation of Indianapolis. Martin-Parry clothed the chassis in their seven-person station wagon design.

By the 1960s, the car was in the care of Clark Woolston of Kentfield, California. In October of 1967, the Woodie Wagon was purchased by the Harrah Collection, followed by a sympathetic restoration a short time later.

In 1986, this AA Wagon was sold from the collection. By the 2000s, the car was acquired by a California collector.

In 2012, this vehicle was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It had a pre-auction estimated value of 35,000 - $45,000 and was offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the vehicle had been sold for the sum of $39,600 inclusive of buyer's premium.
