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!!!
