1949 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe

1949 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe

As is true with many immediate postwar cars, the 1949-'52 Chevrolet Stylelines and Fleetlines are following their slightly younger postwar counterparts to the peak of popularity. Most early-post-war cars were simply updated '42 models. Independent automakers led off with fresh designs as early as 1947, beating the new automobile launches of the \"Big Three.\" By 1949, Chevrolet was ready to tackle all comers with its new design.

For consignment, a beautifully penned to paper design 1949 Styleline Deluxe. The 1949 model was the first all-new Chevrolet since 1942, and it was lower and more modern. Taller, flush front fenders blended into the body sides and lower hood while pontoon-style rear fenders and a divided windshield were retained. Owned by the current consigner since 2000, it has been on many car tours including Nova Scotia, (4K miles with not a problem), Canada, Iowa, Illinois, and Chevy and Glidden Tours too numerous to mention. This is THE definition of a snappy looking driver!

Exterior
The Styleline Deluxe differs from the Fleetline Deluxe mainly on the back design. The Styleline has a notchback design from root to trunk, and Fleetlines have a fastback styling. There was a theory among manufacturers that the more chrome you can put on a car, the faster it will sell, and this car definitely believes in that theory. A tasteful use of horizontal and vertical chromed bars for the grille, with a badge wide trimming at the top surround, and a nicely curved bumper below. Inset round big bezel turn signals are on each corner of the grille, and above at the end of the rounded front quarters is a single round headlight. A cloisonne Chevrolet badge is in front of the hood, and atop is a wonderful clear bakelite and chrome bullet train hood ornament, and it's pure speed. The bulbous hood is all bathed in black like the rest of the nicely gapped steel and shows some inclusions and small bubbles starting to show through. It retains its shine though and looks overall great from normal viewing distance. Slab sides are straight and rust free, with some of that mini bubbling and inclusions as well as polishing scratches. Pontoon styled rear fenders have a nice stainless-steel plate in their front portions which wraps downward to a rocker trim. The notchback trunk and corresponding fender tops cascade downward to a wonderfully preserved rear curved bumper. Black wheels have a central chromed moon cap and are wrapped by thin whitewall rubber.

Interior
A swing of the doors, and we see painted sills that have some water damage. Below this strip of metal is a mohair panel that is now encased in plastic, and it too is showing some previous water damage. A shiny handle and actuator is on and the crank has a cream bakelite knob. The dual bench seats have been recovered in 2014 and are now presented with a red background and white striped accenting that is pure 50's styling. These coverings are excellent and sit within a gray tub. They also have white piping and a smooth red vinyl bolster just above the tub. A wonderful curved in V shape dash is a full metal jacket painted black and charcoal gray. It is peppered with bakelite pulls and knobs and of course more chrome! In front of the original big steering wheel is the instrument cluster all neatly within a round bump up and looking the art deco part. In the center is a vertically ribbed chromed trimming, more knobs and a glovebox in front of the passenger. Nifty Chevrolet badging is top dead center and in the style of your grandmother's handwriting. Black ribbed rubber flooring is down below and above is a slightly water damaged but still tight mohair headliner.

Drivetrain
Consigner states the head to this 206.5ci I-6 was rebuilt in 2008. It sits in the middle of an unrestored and nicely patina engine bay, has a large oil bath air cleaner which filters air for a 1-barrel carburetor. An original 3-speed manual transmission is on back pushing power rearward to a 4.11 rear axle.

Undercarriage
Surface rust is coating the entire undercarriage, and some oiling is seen throughout. It remains structurally sound though and all still solid with no invasive rust. Independent coil springs for the front, and leaf springs for the back, and drum brakes are all mourned.

Drive-Ability
It fires right up however due to a no brake situation we could not take it for a drive. We also noted the blower fan for the interior is in op.

With some dents and dings, patina and mohair damage for the interior, it could be classified as a project car to bring it back up to excellent condition. For now though fix the brakes and you'll be off and running in what we can definitely call a driver's survivor that has logged many tours and drives, all with great memories. A nostalgic collection of notepads from the early 1970's documents service history, as well as fuel fill ups and MPG achieved.
