It really complements the sleek roofline, and points the way for the sporty Impalas and Chevelles of the future. The paint on this one is very well done.

The option lists were a lot shorter in 1951, which gives this car an uncluttered appearance of a simpler time. The steering column is uncomplicated, with a big wheel to help make turning a breeze. Behind it are just two stalks: one for the turn signal and the other to shift the manual transmission. Despite this coupes simplicity, the gauge cluster is quite informative. It has info for the fuel, water temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The two-tone upholstery makes for a nice complement to the exterior color. Plus, the plush cloth inserts on the seats make it feel like two rows of comfy couches. Open up the hood and the honesty of this classic coupe continues. The 235 cubic-inch Blue Flame six-cylinder motor was the powerplant for everything from cars to the Chevys pickups.

Its believed to be original to the car, and it presents correctly, right down to the oil bath air cleaner. For those who want the luxury of cruising, the two-speed automatic transmission is the best choice to have.
