The series came in two body styles, a 4-door Touring and a 2-door Chummy Roadster.


The Chevrolet Series D V8 internal combustion engine is a liquid-cooled, 288 cu in (4.7 L) capacity, designed and built by Chevrolet in 1917 and subsequently by General Motors Company's new Chevrolet Division (acquired as part of Chevrolet's 1917 takeover of, and merger into, GM) in 1917 and 1918.

It is capable of producing 36 hp (27 kW; 36 PS) at 2700 rpm.[2] This was Chevrolet's first V8 and one of the first overhead-valve V8 engines. Chevrolet would not produce another V8 until the debut of the Generation I small-block in 1955. This design had a partially exposed valvetrain (pushrods and lifters were visible) with a nickel-plated rocker cover, an aluminum water-cooled intake manifold. The starter is in the valley of the block, as well as the gear driven generator with the fan clutch coming off of it. The gear driven generator runs the distributor as well. The belt in the front drove only the water pump. It had a 50 lb (23 kg) flywheel and a counterbalanced crankshaft.

The 1917 Chevrolet Series D V8 Touring, with a 120 in (3.05 m) wheelbase, did not sell well.[3]

In 2011, the 1917 Series D was listed 11th in the Worst Cars of All Time.[4]
