1951 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe Tin Woody
Sweeping lines, rarity, and a great woody appearance makes this 1951 Chevrolet Custom Deluxe station wagon instantly desirable... and that's even before you check out the upgrades like the performance V8, updated suspension, overdrive transmission, and A/C interior. We know you likely have never seen something like this before, because not only is it an exceptionally cool custom build, but also it starts with a rare edition. This was the most expensive Chevrolet of its time, and so only the convertible is a rarer Styleline model. So you can just imagine how few have survived over 65 years (especially as solid and straight as this one.) But more than surviving sheet metal, this car has received huge investment to make it an outstanding custom. It took a real artist's eye to create the color combo. With the amount of metallic shine radiating from the House of Kolors Lime Time, we could almost say it shines like jewelry. That's why it's so cool to have the metallic emerald paint on the roof shining with just as deep clear coat finish. The result is unique two-tone that will leave everyone one else green with envy. On a rare wagon like this, the bright work is just as important. More than just having a shining grille and bumpers, this Chevy is complete right down to the trim line running from the front wheel well to the rear fenders. Plus, it has terrific custom touches like the frenched headlights, LED taillights, and those awesome Foose wheels. But we really know what has you hooked on this wagon - the textured wood trim. It's actually an airbrushed custom piece. Yes, it looks so real to all of us too (we had to look super close), so it took a true artist's hand to apply. The care and maintenance is as easy as the rest of the sheet metal. Inside is plenty of modern luxury mixed into the classic elegance. The fresh tan leather on the seats appears quite correct, and it coordinates nicely with the door panels. But just like the exterior, it's the wood that steals the show. Inside is a blend of actual lumber and additional airbrushed artistry, and the pieces surrounding the doors and supporting the headliner have a terrific glossy finish. Style was becoming a priority again in post-war America, and so Chevrolet built an impressive chrome waterfall dash panel that coordinates nicely with the later Impala steering wheel (especially because it's also been custom finished in green and wood.) Plus, the dash has been finished in an exterior-matching two-tone top complete this thoughtful total package. You even have been upgraded to a Dakota Digital dash to give you better info than the factory gauges. But the upgrade you're going to love the most is the modern R134a air conditioning. It means this classic wagon can carry your family and friends in true comfort. The engine bay has been updated to accommodate the iconic Chevy 350 small block, and it really is a shining star in this standout wagon. In fact, we almost dare you to find one more component under the hood that can be polished. As you see the airbrushed graphics on the smooth firewall as well as the artist's touch on the etched air topper and valve covers, it gives hints at this wagon's cool low-rider past (call for all the details.) The V8 not only looks amazing, but it's also been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, March pulleys, and shorty headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. The full package is said to be rated around 300 horsepower, which means this custom has power backing up its style. Plus, take some time to look at all the undercarriage photos. See how clean everything is? That's because there's less than 2,000 miles this since restoration. While you're under there, you might also spot great features like the Mustang II independent front suspension, trailing arm rear, rack & pinion power steering, front disc brakes, and adjustable coil-overs at each wheel. There's even a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, so that this one can cruise easily even on the highway. This is an exceptionally cool cruiser that's perfect for everything from a surf wagon, to your classic that fits the whole family, to a show stopper at the events. You already know how rare this is, so hurry up and call today before this opportunity is gone!
