STK 2557 1951 Chevrolet Fleetline Street Rod
When you think about the Chevys that were produced right after the war, sleek is not an adjective that first comes to mind. That said, this 1951 Fleetline is certainly an exception and Chevy didn't produce a car with these lines again until the '65 Impala SS. These '50s Fleetlines are scarce, and one restored to this level is rare indeed. This 1951 4-owner Fleetline has spent most of its life in the Carolinas. Originally purchased from Thackston Chevrolet in Greenville SC, the first owner kept the car for over 30 years and put a total of only 33,461 miles to the odometer. There is a binder included with the car that documents all of those early years - amazing. From the chrome hood ornament to the fastback rear quarters, this fully restored Chevrolet is now one unique street rod. Attention to detail is outstanding. The body is straight and true, Green Metallic paint is stunning, chrome is excellent and the steel rims w/dog dish hubcaps/rings are perfect accents. Inside the spacious interior, the upholstery work is exceptional – the seats, door cards, headliner – all restored to near original appearance. The time-honored dash now holds a full compliment of Dolphin Classic gauges. Tinted windows, Vintage Air and a tilt column with 'Camaro' wheel complete the package. Under the hood, the Fleetline is powered by a totally rebuilt 350 backed by a GM 700R automatic transmission with electric overdrive. Upgrades include: Edelbrock 4-barrel, aluminum intake, shorty tube headers, aluminum radiator w/electric fan and a dress-up kit. The chassis has been retrofitted with a Mustang II front suspension package, power steering and dropped spindles. Brakes are power disc/drum with a dual master cylinder. Take a moment and look again at the photos. This beautiful Chevrolet 'fastback' is ready for a new owner. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
