Replicating a 1932 Chevrolet Tourer in 18ct gold is no easy task. To imitate by hand, that which is created by
machine, is even more challenging. Yet, the car surpasses these constraints to stand alone, celebrating the creative talents of a master craftsman.
The golden Chevrolet is a unique objet d’art, fashioned from 18ct gold. Its singularity is highlighted by its intricate
detail. The oil-stick, working suspension, air filter, sump nut, door handles, windscreen wipers, water cap, spare
tyres, steering mechanism and luggage trunk are a few of the movable and removable components, and the doors open and lock closed too.
Such detail transforms this model from mere aesthetic appreciation and technical workmanship into the realms of
imaginative wonder. Adherence to detail does not stop here. Meticulous attention to material is reflected throughout the car. Not only has Sid used rubber tyres to add to the realism, but the wind-screen is cut, polished and fitted from rock crystal. It is no wonder that it took three years, or 6786 hours of intense work to craft one kilogram of gold into this work of artistic and engineering excellence.
