You stopped to look at this 1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe sedan for the exact same reason why we fell in love with it, too. It has a great period-correct appearance that makes for an impressive cruiser at quite an affordable price.
This sedan makes a great first impression. The gray has enough metallic element to really draw attention to this classic. This is the kind of bright presentation these classics have always had when you pictured them in your mind. Rivaling the paint for shine is the bright work. It surrounds every piece of glass, runs from the headlight to the door handle, outlines the rear fender, surrounds every exterior light, and covers both bumpers. When all of this is so complete and bright, you realize that you're looking at a labor of love. You'll enjoy going over the details – from the correct long hood ornament, to the sun visor, to the whitewall tires – this is one impressive total package.
Inside it's been restored to look like a time capsule. The option lists were a lot shorter in 1950, which gives this car an uncluttered appearance of a simpler time. The steering column is uncomplicated with a big wheel to help make turning a breeze. We like the bow tie center cap for extra flair. Despite this coupe's simplicity, the gauge cluster is quite informative. It has info for the fuel, water temperature, oil pressure, and voltage that are all surrounding the Art Deco speedometer. Because this is a true 1940s car, there are the traditional bright accents on places like the doors, wheel, and the dashboard. It's joined by the two tones of gray that interweaves so nicely on the dash, door panels, and seats. And speaking of the seats, two rows of benches feel like cushy cloth couches.
Chevy's bulletproof 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. In a sedan that's been so correctly presented so far, having a date-correct 216 cubic-inch power plant is a welcomed sight under the hood. The engine bay is nicely detailed with the correct air grabber, carb, and valve cover. It starts easily with a great six-cylinder grumble from the single tailpipe, and you'll love the control that the three-speed manual transmission gives you over this classic power plant.
This is an attention-grabbing cool cruiser. So when it's ready today for such a nice price, you know you need to act quickly to get it home. Call now!
