1951 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe in Brazil
Here are two shots of my other Chevy for your scrapbook. It's a '51 Styleline De Luxe, four door, that was with the previous owner since 1963.
I bought the car last year and it's very solid and original: 216 engine, 3 speed manual transmission, 6 volt electrical system and even the valve radio. Just the upholstery and paint were redone several times.
After this photo, I made some polishing and retouching work, and the Chevy is shinning again.
The car was produced in Canada (CKD basis) and assembled in São Caetano do Sul, Brazil. Despite the Cuban license plate (just for fun!), the Chevy has been "living" in Rio de Janeiro since new. Last year, I made a 3.700 miles journey to Uruguay driving it. Amazing vacations time.
The B&W picture shows the same car in 1967, in another trip, 730 miles far from home. The fog lights were lost along the years, but I've just found another pair... On the right side, you can see a British Ford Prefect. Behind the Chevy, there's a Rural-Willys (Brazilian made Willys Station Wagon).

1951 Chevy in Argentina
This 4 door 1951 Chevrolet Styleline was imported during the Peron Presidency in 1951. This president give to workers these cars for taxis and this was one of them.
This car was purchased from the original owner in 1960 by a Mr. Aparo of Mendoza, Argentina when he first married.
The original color was black and is now white.

1951 2 Door Chevy
Not much info on this car, just bought it in
September 2002 after finding this Chevy on a used car lot here in Montgomery,
Alabama, Had to have it. Had one like it in 1960 thru 1964. This car has
the 216 still in place, but with two carbs, an Offenhauser two carb intake and
a Fenton Split exhaust. Interior has been redone with black and gray interior
and the paint is pretty good. Moon discs are on all 4 wheels. Otherwise, seems
to be pretty stock.
Somebody put '52 model teeth in the grille, 11 to be exact. Since the '52's only had 5, they added 6 teeth and it looks pretty good. Also the bumpers have been replaced with one piece units, must be aftermarket as the '51's had the three piece bumpers with the splice behind the bumper guards. I had a '51 back in 1960 and kept it until '64 or so. That one was a little better car, less wear and tear, but it's fun to cruise in this one today and see all the attention it generates.
1951 Fleetline Deluxe Sedan
Here is my 1951 Fleetline Deluxe Sedan. It is completely restored with a 6 cylinder engine, 3 speed manual transmission and 6 volt electrical system. The original radio and dash clock even work.
It currently has 98,674 original miles on it. I am looking forward to seeing it roll back to 00,000.
