This 1951 Chevrolet Styleline Sport Coupe is a bright and sleek classic with the kind of details that make people take extra time checking it out. But you'll love this for more than just the paint and body. With an upgraded 350ci V8, upgraded suspension, and comfy A/C interior, they made sure this stylish custom was truly built to cruise.
Raspberry Metallic is a terrific color because it follows the pastel hues we love in a 1950s machine while also adding an electric element. So it does a good job of looking both classic and custom, and that's the real theme of this car. The paint was done in 1999, and its condition today displays how this car has been treated with true respect. And as you look at the full package, it will also show that respect also means newer investment in the right places. But what we especially love about the exterior are all the custom upgrades. Frenched headlight, a louvered hood, sport mirrors, shaved door handles, large exhaust tips, and Cadillac tail lights are part of the classic custom cruiser attitude. And the trunk and hood are especially smooth so that it makes for a clean surface for the pinstriping. Plus, the brightwork has a ton of shine to showcase the classic grille, chrome bumper, dual spotlights, and side trim that highlights the well-fitting doors. Those Torq Thrust wheels are also part of the shine, but what you'll really like is how the larger rear set gives this coupe a sporty stance.
The raspberry returns inside on the door tops and dash, and there's even a coordinating dark purple carpeting. But what will really grab your attention is the bright white. It looks great on the upholstery, headliner, rear shelf, and even the trunk. And while you'll admire the bold style of the flame stitched in the door panels, the working courtesy lights also tell you about the detailed quality of this build. This has nice upgrades like an AM/FM/cassette stereo, upgraded gauges with column-mounted tach, and the tilt steering column for the cool two-tone steering wheel. Plus, there were $$$$ thousands invested in 2018, including a cold-blowing air conditioning system. So it's quite a comfortable cruiser.
Under the hood is a nice small block addition. This 350 cubic-inch V8 has an Edelbrock upgrade suite with the four-barrel carburetor, intake, and valve covers with color-mated raspberry. And thoughtful details like the aluminum radiator w/electric fan help keep this one running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. As a true cruiser, you've also got nice upgrades like a tubular A-arm front suspension, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and build receipts. This is not only a bold-looker but also a great driver. So if you want a 1950s Chevy coupe that's nice for cruising near or far, call today!
