Description:

If you like to walk off the beaten path a bit, perhaps this 1951 Chevrolet convertible will appeal to you. It''s still got a Stovebolt under the hood, but a few choice performance upgrades make it a blast to drive, and the look is straight out of the ''60s, with a mild custom flair and daily driver functionality. Fans of the more rounded ''40s cars tend to gravitate to these post-war Chevys for their generous curves, and they always look best topless. The restoration on this car is perhaps 15 years old, but since it was completed it''s been driven very little, so it still looks fantastic and shows very little shelf wear. The light blue paint wasn''t on the Chevrolet color chart in 1951, but it definitely looks right on the vintage ragtop, showing off the long, pointed hood and bulging rear fenders to great effect. Fit and finish are quite good, with even gaps all around and doors that close with a welcome solidity that you don''t find in every old car, particularly convertibles. A few hand-drawn pinstripes emphasize the period look and all the chrome has been restored so it sparkles beautifully. The only notable modifications are the blue-dot taillight lenses and headlight visors, both easily returned to stock if that''s the way you roll. The white interior duplicates the factory patterns and presents a wonderful contrast of light and dark blue accents. The upholstery was all new when the car was restored, and as I said, it doesn''t show much wear today. Up front, the seat is firm and clean, the carpets are unmarked, and it still looks fantastic today. There are numerous functionality upgrades, including an Auto Gauge tach on the steering column, a Hurst 4-speed shifter on the floor, and a custom console under the dash to hold the AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit and Vintage Air A/C controls. Three pods up top hold additional auxiliary gauges and the original steering wheel is in outstanding condition. The white convertible top fits well, but you''ll probably never use it except in emergencies so most of the time it''ll stay under the fitted white boot. The trunk was also treated to a full makeover, with matching blue carpets, pleated side panels, and a fitted spare tire cover. The engine is a 235 cubic inch inline-six, which is the largest and most fully developed of the Chevy sixes. It''s also smooth and torquey, and with a few choice upgrades, it''s a fun cruiser that bops around town in a way that''s distinctly different from the usual V8. Period performance and looks come from an Offenhauser head, a dual carb intake, and a custom dual exhaust system that gives the big six a great soundtrack. A finned aluminum valve cover and chrome air cleaner are perfect 1950s accessories, and with a 4-speed gearbox behind it, performance is impressive. The A/C system was neatly hidden so it''s not immediately visible, and someone obviously spent a lot of time getting that exhaust system to fit right. The lowered stance looks just right but doesn''t kill ride quality, and big radials wrapped around shiny Centerline aluminum wheels fill the wheel wells. A fun vintage ragtop that doesn''t follow the usual formula. So if you like them just a bit traditional, this Chevy is a fantastic choice. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
