The Chevrolet Eagle (Series CA) was an American vehicle manufactured by Chevrolet in 1933 to replace the 1932 Series BA Confederate. The Eagle was joined by the cheaper Chevrolet Mercury later in 1933 to provide Chevrolet with two-car range, and the first time in ten years they manufactured two models on different wheelbases.

The Eagle sold 450,435, an increase of nearly 140,000 the previous year's Series BA sales of 313,395, and ensured that Chevrolet was able to retain their number one spot in American car sales. The Eagle saw the end of two-seater cars from Chevrolet, and the new Town Sedan included an integral trunk.

Specification

The Eagle's wheelbase increased an inch to 110 in (2,794.0 mm) compared to the Series BA, and was three inches longer than the new Mercury.

It was powered by a larger version of the "Stovebolt Six", 206 cu in (3,380 cc) six-cylinder engine, producing 65 hp (48 kW). A smaller 181 cu in (2,970 cc) six-cylinder was used in the Mercury, producing 60 hp (45 kW).
