Stk. 2296 1951 Chevrolet Coupe
This Chevrolet Styleside Sports Coupe is a solid example of a classic Chevy. Originally a west coast car, it moved east in 2003 and received a full frame-off restoration. According to the current owner, the Chevy then spent quite a few years in a classic car museum before he purchased it. The current mileage of just over 67k is said to be actual. The restoration included a respray of Black enamel and the eye-catching exterior is accented with nice chrome, factory hubcaps/trim rings and wide-white 15" 4-ply tires. There is also a classic windshield shade and rear fender skirts. The restored grey cloth interior has new seats, carpet, door panels and headliner. A stunning dash retains the original instrumentation, clock, heater controls and even a service record plaque that reads 52,000 miles in 1983. The AM radio looks factory, but has been cleverly converted to an AM/FM unit. This solid Styleside is powered by a 216ci straight-six, housed in a detailed engine compartment, that the owner believes has never required a rebuild. The engine appears to be original except for the dual exhaust system with split-headers was installed to provide better breathing. Behind the 'stovebolt' sits a 3-speed manual with column shift. This Chevy is ready for a new owner who will appreciate this classic Styleside Coupe. Call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com for additional information.
