You stopped to look at this 1951 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe for the
exact same reason why we fell in love with it, too. It has a great
period-correct appearance inside and out that makes for an
impressive cruiser at an obtainable price.
The paint sets the tone correctly. After all, cars from this era
always look good in a glossy black. That shine loves to show off
those '50s curves. The rounded center of the hood blends with the
rounded rear fenders and rounded profile to give this car a
graceful look. And the good body panels give this a quality
personation. Another '50s hallmark is brightwork, and so it's great
to see it so complete and original-style on the big chrome bumpers,
grille, sweeping side trim, wheel covers, and jet-like hood
ornament leading the way. And this has an authentic feeling right
down to the details, from the fender skirts to the correct-style
glass in the two-piece windshield.
The interior keeps the authentic feeling going. The two-tone gray
upholstery almost looks like a classic suit with its pinstripes.
And the door panels, carpeting, and dash all harmonize in gray. The
steering wheel has a true classic look, and the dash has an
attractive Art Deco style. It even keeps the correct heat controls
and AM radio controls there for display. In fact, just like the
exterior, you'll really like the originality in the details, right
down to the working dome light and the trunk that has the correct
stand-up spare and jack.
Chevy's hardy 216 inline-six was the backbone of the company for
decades. Famous for its durability and smoothness, you'll find that
this is an easy car to love. This one even has correct details,
like the oil bath air cleaner, Rochester single carb, and
Delco-Remy generator. But there were also the right subtle upgrades
that keep this a better cruiser, including a new fuel tank and
electric fuel pump. The three-speed manual transmission gives you
smooth shifting from the column. And modern Michelin cruising tires
keep the ride feeling quite nice.
If you want that authentic time capsule feel in a package that's
still meant to be enjoyed, you know you've found the right one
here. Call today!!!
