For Sale: 1949 Chevrolet Styleline in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1949 Chevrolet Styleline two-door Sedan has that cool classic shape we rarely see. But as you dig deeper, you discover the right custom touches that make for a more desirable cruiser - all without betraying the vintage nature.

This Chevy has all the right curves. The fenders, the hood, and the wraparound bumper give it that classic front end that could have only come from Post-War America. And as you go along the side, the torpedo-like rear fenders even have a fender skirt to make sure you see the whole swoopy profile. Everything from the two-piece wheel covers to the two-piece windshield gives this one a nice vintage look. Window breezies, a custom hood ornament, and wide whitewalls, really give this a cool cruiser style. That's why the paint was also upgraded later in life to a more distinct dark green with a nice metallic element. It all goes towards the theme of a matured look - almost like a Saturday night cruiser that had been locked away for decades.

The right mix of vintage and upgrades returns inside. You can tell the door panels, carpeting, and cloth upholstery were updated later in life, but nothing too radical to look out of place in a car that has crossed the 70-year-old threshold. You get a great vintage feeling just by slipping behind the large and grippy factory wheel and looking out at the full art deco-style dash. The value price leaves room in your budget if you want to return the function to handy upgrades like the tach and R134a air conditioning. And this already has good cruiser features like auxiliary readouts and front seatbelts.

The engine bay is nicely detailed with the bright valve cover, AC offset air intake, and an overall tidy style. This classic Chevy inline-six is the period correct 216 cubic-inch unit. As a true cruiser, this one has been upgraded for driving. It's in subtle ways, like how this is now on a 12-volt system, and that makes it easier to run features that make this a better cruiser. This includes an alternator and an electric fan. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you proper control over this powerplant, and the classic whitewalls hide a modern tread. So it makes for a solid vintage driving experience.

This is the classic Chevy that's built for extra fun. That makes for a very cool two-door you need to get your hands on now. Call today!!!
