In 1950, Chevrolet sold a record-breaking 1.5 million cars, thanks in large part to the Deluxe. The Deluxe range offered a balance of style and luxury unavailable in the base Special series, and was Chevys sales leader from the late forties to the mid-fifties. This 1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe is an incredible survivor and holds the same allure today that it did nearly seventy years ago. This great survivor features the optional 235 ci straight six engine, which went on to become the Blue Flame six, and the two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. The bigger 235 had hydraulic lifters and a higher-lift cam, and made 105 hp compared to the Specials 216s solid lifters and 92 hp. The 235 ran quieter, sparing Chevrolet owners the annoying tappet clatter theyd endured for years. In daily operation, the two-speed Powerglide only operated through a single speed, the theory being that the variable ratios in the torque converter were enough for all driving needs. It was possible for the driver to select low range manually. When you come in for your test drive, see if you dont agree with the quiet and agreeable personality of this engine. Then notice the Powerglide experience. If youre already familiar, its just like you remember, right? If this is your first experience, youll marvel at how capable it is. Dressing up this Styleline Deluxe is a trim strip of stainless down the side, with Deluxe script on the front fender. Chrome gravel guards and fender skirts dress up the rear quarters. Notice also the stainless moldings around the windshield and rear window. While not a Chevrolet option, the external windshield visor was a popular era addition and a real point of pride. It protected the driver from glare off the metal dashboard, and made a statement about the owner. This 50 Chevy is ready to drive and go just exactly as is. Fire it up, and off you go. It also offers great potential for modifying as a sleeper, performing a complete restoration, or making extensive modifications. If your family history parted ways with a 1950 Chevy Deluxe at some point in the past, this is your chance to reconnect. Strike while the iron is hot! Call Art & Speed at (901) 850-0507 today! h4.
