You stopped to look at this 1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe for the exact same reason why we fell in love with it, too. It has a great period-correct appearance inside & out that makes for an impressive cruiser at an obtainable price.
This sedan makes a great first impression. The Saddle Brown has enough metallic element to really draw attention to this two-door. This is the kind of bright presentation these classics have always had when you pictured them in your mind. And the Sierra Beige completes this period-correct two tone. Rivaling the paint for shine is the brightwork. It surrounds every piece of glass, outlines the rear fender, and gives this a 10,000-watt smile. And the sweeping side trim looks great while outlining how straight the panels are. When all of this is so complete and bright, you realize that you're looking at a labor of love. In fact, this was fully restored in 2003 and there's plenty of receipts documenting the full investment $$$$ in keeping this looking great. 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 1952, which gives this car an uncluttered appearance of a simpler time. And even the AM radio is still cranking out tunes on this well-kept classic. The steering column is uncomplicated with a big wheel to help make turning a breeze. 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 next to 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 a similar two-tone to the exterior 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. This version has a little extra flair with the polished head cover, and beneath is the added displacement of the 235 cubic-inch unit. But the rest is pure vintage – from the six-volt battery, to the oil bath air cleaner. 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.
