     This is my 1951 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe 4 Door Sedan.  My father gave me this car in September 1999.  It was originally purchased by a Mrs. Bertha A. Dagan (deceased 1977) of York, Maine from the S.W. Johnson & Son Motors of Sanford, Maine.  This car may have been a demonstration model shown by the dealership to prospective buyers before Mrs. Dagan's purchase. S.W. Johnson was her brother-in-law.
     My Father bought the car from Mrs. Dagan's estate in 1985 and partially restored it. It still has the original engine with 76,000+ miles and most of the original parts.  I am now the 3rd Proud Registered Owner of this Wonderful Car.

     This car is in very good mechanical condition and I use it on a Daily basis when home from offshore.  In time, I hope to have my "Over-sized Go-cart" repainted and redo all chrome plating.
