Car description

Original 1951 Chevrolet Style-Line Deluxe Tin-Woodie Wagon
Would be great for an auto museum, dealership,lodge etc.
The Styleline DeLuxe was Chevrolet's top-of-the-line series in the early 1950s. This vehicle cost even more than the convertible and was the most expensive chevy made in 1951. Fisher Body was reportedly skeptical about making an all-steel bodied wagon in the 1930s but by 1950, it created its first all-steel wagon, affectionately referred to as the "Tin Woody." In the station wagon's case, Harley Earl and his skilled stylists created a clever automotive illusion, a steel body with faux wood sections. This way, Chevy continued to cater to customers who wanted or demanded that woody look without the maintenance and durability issues that accompanied vehicles with real wood body sides. Original everything...6 volt--- tube tires--vacuum wipers--working wind up clock--working vacuum tube radio-- never rebuilt engine-- rare 3rd seat -- rebuilt water pump--rebuilt generator-- rebuiltcarburetor--rebuilt fuel pump and sending unit.

I asked my dad for a little history on the car. He said he got it in trade for some work he did in Chicago in the 1960's. He really had no use for it so he parked it in a barn and that's why it has low mileage. In 2001 he had some friends do some body work on it. He also had it re chromed. (like looking in a mirror) and had all the stainless steel polished to a mirror like finish including the stainless grille. He thinks Chevy worked with Chris Craft boat company on the interior woodwork, which might make sense it kinda drives like a boat..LOL. The exterior woodgrain was matched with the old decals for exact color and pictures were taken to match the original direction of the grains. It runs very quiet but you have to add lead additive to the gasoline, people at car shows don't even know when I am behind them. The reason I am selling the car is because my wife says I have to many other projects and I also have two kids in college. The Car is being sold AS IS. Thanks for bidding.
