As America crossed over into the 1950s, a new style of car was firmly in place. The outboard fenders were going the way of the dinosaur and a new and streamlined looked was taking over. Indeed, the tall and boxy look that had defined styling for so many years was in the past. Things were changing quickly with electrifying colors, jet-inspired designs, and dazzling chrome. Longer and lower was the order of the day and no one displayed this better than Chevrolet’s line of fine cars for 1950. So stylish were Chevrolet’s cars for 1950 that they were once again America’s number one automaker.
Chevrolet had a car for everyone in 1950, but none were as glamorous as the Styleline Deluxe five-passenger convertible. The dazzling example offered here was fully restored in 1996 and nothing was overlooked in returning this stylish convertible back to factory new. Its Moonlight Cream color makes it a car that can be seen from any distance. Riding on a 115-inch wheelbase, Chevy’s Styleline Deluxe wasn’t the biggest car on the road, but a perfect combination of styling and symmetry made it attractive and easy to drive. The full restoration of this example involved the refurbishment of all chrome, and this Deluxe is also fitted with optional rear stone guards. A large front bumper is right at home on this 1950s cruiser and it also carries optional fog lights. A set of wide whitewall tires mounted on color-keyed rims gives it a stylish look. At the rear, a long trunk lid combines with rear wheel covers for a sleek and aerodynamic appearance that looks especially nice with the top down. The upholstery is finished in supple leather with cordovan inserts that carry over to the door panels. Chevrolet’s simplistic dashboard design made for easy driving with a large pod that houses all gauges neatly in front of the driver. Optional equipment on this Deluxe includes a radio, heater, clock, and power convertible top. Reliability is never a question with Chevrolet’s tried and proven 216.5 cubic-inch inline six rated at 90 horsepower mated to a three-speed manual transmission.
The 1950s were a time like no other in American car design. For 1950, styling was tasteful, sophisticated, and elegant. This Styleline Deluxe convertible is a car that takes us back to a time when cars were unique and different in their appearance. With comfort, amenities and plenty of style, this fabulous fifties Chevrolet is an ideal candidate for weekend outings, shows and tours all across the country.
