Arrive in style in this 1950 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe Convertible! This un-restored original example has only 30,867 actual miles. This well preserved car was acquired from a private antique collector who claims this was one of three cars he acquired from the Steve McQueen collection, which included over 650 vehicles. It is believed this car spent most of its life in Beverly Hills, CA which is supported by the history and documentation which was presented to us by this collector. There is no doubt the mileage is actual and the car is original! These cars are rarely offered for sale, as most end up in car museums or in huge private collections. The car has been meticulously maintained in a climate controlled environment for the past 4 decades. You'll notice the originality of the exterior chrome plating, stainless trim, glass and emblems, which are also very well preserved. The car is equipped with a 216 inline straight 6 cylinder engine, which delivers 90-92 hp and has always been meticulously serviced - this car runs extremely well. It also has a 3 speed gear box with 3 on the column shift transmission. Options include; front cow catcher, rear bumper guards, gas door guard, door handle guards, rear fender chip guards, side mounted mirrors, windshield washer bottle, fender skirts with wide white wall radial tires. Other options include, AM radio, clock, sun visors, heater and EZ eye tinted glass including the windshield. The dash and instrument cluster presents itself as totally original and un-restored; paint, chrome, trim, original ivory knobs, hardware and steering wheel all in beautiful condition. Included with the sale of this car are all of the original books and records/ manuals which are still neatly tucked in the glove box. Looking at the overall interior, it appears that only the seat covers and carpets have been replaced. The door panels, door hardware, rear side panels and seat side escutcheons are all in original condition and show beautifully. The hydraulic motor was rebuilt which operates the replaced power top. The undercarriage is showing no signs of rust repairs or sheet metal replacement to the floor pans, rocker panels or floor braces. This car has brand new and correct exhaust system by Gardner Exhaust, belts and hoses, plugs, wires and has recently had a tune-up, new battery, wheel cylinders and brake system including fresh fluids. The time is right for driving with the top down and enjoying the warmer weather.
