Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1951 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe is a highly authentic classic where the investments made over the years seem to have only been about retaining that vintage elegance we all want from a cool cruising Chevy.
As the Styleline Deluxe names suggests, this sedan has an instant look of both flair and premium. The factory-correct Mayland Black paint has an ideal presentation. It's not overdone like a hot rod, but there is a nice gloss and shine that comes from a more modern application. So the first impression is a dignified classic. Plus, you have brightwork looking good in all the right places thanks to an investment in the bumpers, grille, and trim. And speaking of the trim, we especially like the sweeping side pieces that run through the door line to also help highlight the straightness of the sheetmetal. There are nice classic details, like the rear fender skirts and the color-matched wheels featuring a white pinstripe and two-piece bright trim. These are joined by distinct period-correct upgrades, like the headlight eyebrows and the alloy sun visor. And it all comes together to deliver the smooth-looking cruiser you've been searching for.
The interior is a well-done vintage package. You have a two-tone gray on the well-done door panels. This coordinates nicely with the two-tone steering wheel and dash. Plus, as you look closer, the art deco style center section contains everything from the factory-style AM radio (currently just for display) and the working heater. There are some subtle upgrades, like the tinted windows and wool-like woven inserts for the seats. It all adds some extra comfort without really distracting from the very vintage atmosphere.
Because this sedan is for true vintage lovers, you'll be especially glad to know that this has a verified year-correct 235 cubic-inch block in the engine bay. And it's even believed to be original to the car! 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 really has a terrific classic look, right down to the oil bath air cleaner. It's a strong runner that's also a smooth cruiser thanks to the Powerglide automatic transmission (and the dates also sync up to make a strong case for the original unit.)
Complete with owner's manual, this is one for the true classic car fans out there. So if you know how to love a true vintage Chevy, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
