1951 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe news, pictures, specifications, and information
Sport Coupe
 
This 1951 Chevrolet Styleling Deluxe is an original, unrestored example that has traveled a mere 38,000 miles since new. It is an AACA - Historical Preservation of Features (HPOF) Certified car. It came equipped with 21 factory and dealer options.
Production of the Chevrolet Styleline began in 1949. It was considered to be among the best-looking GM products produced. Built with precision, the '49 Chevy's also received updated power with the arrival of Powerglide two-speed automatic. This gave the Chevy Six increased displacement along with 15 percent more horsepower.

Though Advertisements at the time indicated that the new Chevrolet Styleline and Fleetline models were ‘more beautiful than ever', very few major changes were found between the 1951 and 1952 models. Previously a once smooth bar, a row of ‘teeth' were found on a newly touched-up grille, along with wider parking lights.
The same as before, the vehicles continued on as before with a 105-horsepower, 235.5-cubic-inch engine for those that came with Powerglide. For manual-shift models, a 92-horsepower, 216.5-cubic-inch rendition of the Stovebold Six was utilized. Stick-shift drivers had to endure solid tappets, while the bigger engined models had hydraulic lifters.
For the last time, a Fleetline two-door fastback was on sale, only in DeLuxe trim. The lineup was basically a duplicate of 1951, four Styleline Special body styles along with 6 Styleline DeLuxes. DeLuxe models were the only units to offer Powerglide, along with updated interiors that were harmonized with body colors.
A total of 84,409 KJ Styleline Special units were produced and sold between $1,530 and $1,670. 671,472 KK Styleline DeLuxe models were sold at a price range of $1,707-2,297. A total of 37,164 KK Fleetline DeLuxes were sold at $1,707.
