1950 Chevrolet Styleline

This car has a straight body that was painted some time back. There are some areas that need touch up.

The interior was redone at a cost of $4000 and the seats are on blocks that need to be attached to the floor.

This car can be driven the clutch feels fairly strong but it needs the lower bell housing cover.

We are selling this on as a project to finish for someone.

A little car history

The Chevrolet Deluxe was introduced late in the 1941 model year as a 4-door sedan. In 1942 a fastback 2-door "aerosedan" became an option. Production was indefinitely delayed in 1942 due to WWII after 110000 had been made total though several thousand Chevrolet coupes and sedans were produced during the war years for military staff use. In late 1945 civilian production resumed. The original series was produced through 1948. A redesigned Deluxe with reduced body contour and integrated rear fenders was offered for the 1949 and 1950 years.

The exterior sported smooth curves with chrome and stainless trim. The rear bumper had an optional center bumper guard that had to be ratcheted out of the way so the trunk cover could be lifted. Front and rear bumpers had optional chrome "tips" a dress-up item that bolted to the ends of the stock bumper. Although it wasn't a Chevrolet option a popular after market feature was a large external sunshade that protected the driver from glare off the metal dash board.

The interior had cloth bench seats and a metal dash sometimes with a simulated burl wood grain. The radio was a simple mono vacuum tube type radio with integrated speaker. On the left side of the radio there was a knob labeled "T" and it operated the throttle because during startup it was hard to press both the starter pedal and the accelerator while keeping the clutch depressed. On the right side was the choke lever. The clock was integrated into the glove compartment door and was of a manual-wind 7-day type.

In the 1941/42 model years the 216cid inline 6 "Blue Flame" engine was the only one offered. It produced 85 horsepower at 3300 rpm. In 1947 output was bumped up to 90 horsepower. A Deluxe of this vintage could easily exceed 80 miles per hour without overdrive. The transmission was a manual synchromesh 3 speed with vacuum assisted shift in which the "three-on-the-tree" shifter was able to be moved between gears by the slightest pressure on the lever. Third gear was direct meaning the input and output are equal speeds. Overdrive was a rare option. Connection to the third member rear-end was via an enclosed "torque tube" driveshaft. The brakes were hydraulic with all-wheel drums. The master cylinder was located beneath the driver. Shock absorbers were of the lever type. The windshield through 1948 was of a split flat-glass type. The wipers were vacuum actuated. Chevrolet offered windshield washers on some years.

In 1949 all the Chevrolets got the first new styling after the war. The Deluxe was the brand new upper-end model for Chevrolet. The cheapest Deluxe was the Deluxe Styleline 6-passenger sedan costing $1492. Brakes were 11" drums. It has full instrumentation.The front suspension had stabilizers.

In 1950 not much had changed. The front leg room was 42.8 inches. Station wagons were available with either wood or metal bodywork.

For 1951 there were few styling changes to the outside though the dash was completely new. The radio was optional at $64. The rear axle had a ratio of 4.11:1. Popular Mechanics rated fuel economy of 20mpg at 50mph.
