1951 CHEVROLET STYLELINE SPECIAL 2 DOOR C-815 This 1951 Chevrolet Styleline Special is a two-door sedan that reportedly spent time with two long-term owners prior to the gentleman we purchased it from. It was told he acquired it as a rolling project with no drivetrain in 2003. Subsequent refurbishment and modifications included installation of a 350ci V8 and 700R4 automatic transmission, refinishing the body with metallic blue paint and Corvette taillights, custom interior work, a Mustang II front end with power steering and disc brakes, and more. The previous owner drove the car approximately 64k miles, and a partial repaint was conducted in 2018. This custom Styleline is offered with some service records and various documents. The Styleline platform offered an array of configurations between 1948-1952, and this two-door sedan was refinished in light blue metallic under previous ownership. Modifications include shaved trim and door handles, 1958 Corvette taillights integrated into the rear fenders, and tinted windows. Chrome Cragar 15 inch wheels wear faux spinner center caps and 205/75 Centron radial tires. The ride height has been lowered from stock over a Mustang II independent front end, which features power-assisted disc brakes and rack-and-pinion steering. The solid rear axle was sourced from a 1963 Chevrolet Nova and retains drum brakes. A custom interior by D&J Auto Trim houses late-model GM seats in beige leather with power-adjustment on the drivers side and a matching bench in the rear. An aftermarket shifter with a billet knob extends from the floor. A black Grant GT steering wheel frames an aftermarket combination gauge and speedometer in a painted dash that we were told is the stock color. Additional modifications include an underslung air conditioner as well as a tilting Buick steering column with a cruise control stalk and a SunPro tachometer. The replacement odometer indicates 64k miles, all of which were added by previous owner. Total chassis mileage is unknown. The Chevrolet 350ci V8 was installed by Siebert Custom and is paired with a 700R4 automatic transmission that replaced a previous three-speed manual gearbox in 2010. Underhood details include an Edelbrock intake manifold and four-barrel carburetor, tubular headers, and Bowtie valve covers. A transmission oil cooler is mounted ahead of the aluminum radiator. An oil change was last performed in February 2020. Modifications and maintenance are documented on handwritten lists and receipts. ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
