Stylin’ in the Styleline

A dyed-in-the-wool Ford man owns this spectacular ’51 Chevy– that says a lot!

A little history on the “early” Chevys. For the 1949 model year, Chevrolet completely overhauled its entire line, moving from pre-war design to brand new cars with full-width bodies, “pontoon” fenders, and sweeping, muscular quarter panels. Chevrolet offered Special and Deluxe models in both Fleetline and Styleline series. Prices varied greatly– a basic business coupe went for $1300 and an 8-passenger wagon could top out at $2200. Just about every body type (including the convertible) and price level was offered in between. The only powertrain available was a 216 cubic-inch six-cylinder engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission.
