If you’re looking for a gorgeous cruiser with the looks of yesterday and the power and reliability of today, look no further than this stunning 1949 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe convertible.
Benefitting from a frame-off restoration completed in 2012, this convertible is finished in Oxford Maroon metallic and features a contrasting tan convertible top with a rear glass window. Its finish has an absolutely beautiful luster that is further accentuated by an abundance of chrome and brightwork that is in excellent condition. With the exception of the bumperettes, which did not need rechroming, all of the chrome has been replated and shows beautifully. All of the glass is new.
The fully restored interior is also in excellent condition, featuring Oxford Maroon and Tan seating areas by Hampton Coach. Its gorgeous steering wheel—a one-year only steering wheel for the Deluxe model—lends plenty of distinction to the interior. You’ll also appreciate the condition of the door panels, carpeting, dashboard, and chrome adorned instrumentation. Other features that will add to your comfort and convenience include a power convertible top, a rebuilt original AM radio, LED tail lamps, and Vintage Air heating and defroster with controls neatly stowed in the glove box.
Under the hood you will find a neatly detailed engine compartment featuring a SBC 350 CID V-8 crate motor mated to a 700R4 automatic transmission. The new engine and rebuilt transmission have just 3,200 miles. The rear-end has a 3.42 gear ratio. Other performance enhancements include the following:
