This Chevy has been connected to the same family
since its original purchase by Amos Abramsom in southern Illinois in 1951. After
his death, the car was rescued from a demolition derby entry by Amos' nephew,
Hugh Hufnagel. Later, he would sell the vehicle for its continued care to his
sons, Gary and Larry, who sold it to their sister, Susan Bickel.
I purchased it from my sister-in-law in the summer of
1999. The car is
unmodified, still containing its original interior, engine (less than 50,000
miles) and body.
It is currently used as a summer touring car by our family, primarily in
Ontario. The car "summers" out of Lansing, Michigan.

1951 Styleline Deluxe 2 Door
Purchased my 1951 Styleline Deluxe 2 Dr. six years ago from a fellow in
Orlando, Fla. He bought the car from a man who presently lives in West
Virginia. The car made it to West Virginia originally from Pennsylvania. A
while back I spoke on the phone to the man who originally owned this car in
Pennsylvania. It had been stored for many years before going to W. Virginia.
I had the interior restored...and other than mechanical repairs...only added
those touches to keep it original. Also had a carpet put in with the new
interior, however, carpets did not come standard on these models. But, it sure
Had the AM radio repaired...works great if you can find a station!! The heater
is an aftermarket Arvin heater, which was popular at the time, also. The tires
are Sears Silverstone tires put on by the owner from W. Va 18 years ago, so he
tells me. Not much mileage since then....appear practically new.
The car is a 235cid PowerGlide with all matching components. The motor # is
JAD296980, casting 3835499, built in Flint, Michigan. The vehicle serial # is
9JKB, assembled in Norwood, Ohio in February 1951. The top color is Fathom
green and below the belt Aspen Green....original 1951 color scheme for 2-tone
If you are a member of the VCCA, my car is on the February 2001 cover of G&D
club magazine. There is a club meetings in Punta Gorda, Fla. .....maybe see
you there. Always love to talk old Chevy stuff. Thanks.
