Danish-born William S. 'Big Bill' Knudsen helped Henry Ford figure out how to produce Model T's by the millions. In early 1924 Knudsen shocked the industry by moving to General Motors, where he took command of the Chevrolet brand and car, brought into the GM fold by Billy Durant. Knudsen immediately challenged Chevy dealers to match Ford sales 'one for one' - a seemingly impossible goal as nearly half of all new cars sold at the time were Fords.

Knudsen and a talented team of managers instituted a policy of continuous improvement for the 4-cylinder Chevy. By 1925, the aptly named Superior K Chevrolet was a worthy competitor to the Model T Ford.

The Chevrolet 4-cylinder engine featured overhead valves and produced 26 horsepower, while the Model T's L-head four was rated at 20 horsepower. Chevy had a conventional 3-speed manual transmission, but Ford clung to the 2-speed planetary gearbox used in Model Ts since 1908. Buyers noticed and Chevy sales soared to 341,281 for 1925. The battle for sales supremacy had been joined.

In 1925, a Superior K Touring such as this one listed for $525. That price included an electric starter and wood-spoke wheels. Bumpers, though, were optional. This example was found in a barn around 1970 and was subsequently restored. It is believed to have traveled only 31,000 miles since new.
