Vehicle Description

STK 2890 1951 Chevrolet Deluxe Convertible

Back in 1951, the Deluxe was the top-of-the-line Chevrolet and this 3-owner convertible is an exceptional example of that classic. It is sweet. When the Chevy left the factory back in '51 it had virtually every option available on the sheet. The current owner (13 years) has included the window sticker, Owners Manual, documentation and a '1951' calendar. The ragtop has been the beneficiary of a full restoration and may very well be your 'Best of Show'. The exterior received a professional 2-stage respray of original Trophy Blue. The owner added a small amount of metallic to the finish and it really jumps. This eye-catching appearance is accented by a stunning white top (manual), rear fender skirts, hubcaps/beauty rings and wide-white 15" radial tires. Other rare options include hood ornament, dual outside mirrors, fog lights, driver spotlight, turn signals, backup lights and a full front bumper guard. The spare tire is beautifully housed in a factory continental-style rear bumper. A blue leather interior was original to the car, but all was reupholstered during the restoration process. The interior has more the appearance of Cadillac from that era than a Chevy. Everything is first-class and in excellent condition. Factory comfort options include heater/defroster, 'wind-up' clock (inop) and Day/Night mirror. New carpeting was installed front/rear and the factory AM radio was converted to an AM/FM system - it looks original, but provides 2021 sound. The Chevy is powered by a 235ci straight-six that was donated by a '55 Chevy and totally rebuilt. It runs like a Swiss watch. Exhaust is routed through a 3-into-1-header dual exhaust system, all electrics have been converted to 12 volts and a new fuel tank was installed. Behind the 'stovebolt', a 3-speed manual gearbox from a '61 Chevy sedan transfers torque to a '55 Chevy differential with stock gears (same donor as engine). All of these components meld together perfectly as very few major mechanical changes occurred during these years - if it worked, don't fix it. The chassis is fitted with manual steering and hydraulic 4-wheel drum brakes. Look at the photos again. This stunning Chevrolet convertible deserves center stage in your Bowtie garage. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
