1950 Chevrolet Styleline Special Sport Coupe, Style No: 50 1227, VIN: 14HJD18109, Body No: M 1636, Trim: 170, Paint: 423
216 CI engine HAMI74983
Its been a great experience (over the past 9 years) and now it is time for someone else to take it home!!!
My Dad bought this car in PA in 1993 (it was running and had current PA inspection). It sat in my Sister's garage (untouched) until 2008 when I hauled it from Ohio to central VA. I completely disassembled the car and began rebuilding it from the frame to finish. I got off to a great start (chassis is completely refinished, rebuilt, and upgraded), but my time on task diminished significantly over the past five years. It is now almost 25 years since this car last saw time on the road.
In addition to countless hours of wrenching, grinding, welding, parts searching, and reengineering ... I've also sunk a few dollars into this project.
Chassis Reengineering, rebuilding, and finish - $3200 (I have the parts/materials invoices)
EMS Sheet metal panels (about everything they produce for this car), and other sheet metal parts - $3600 (I have the invoices)
Misc parts purchased via ebay, parts swaps, etc. - $500
Complete disassembly including tagging, packaging, and storing all parts was done years ago.
Chassis: POR15 finish, complete rebuild of front end, front disc brake conversion, dual master cylinder conversion, completely replumbed brake metal lines, rear end upgrade from 1953 (3:70 gear ratio), rear Bendix brakes (hardware, drums, pads), front coil springs and rear springs.
Body: Over half of the necessary sheet metal work is done. The passenger side of the car is in decent shape (new floor pans, floor braces, rockers (inner and outer), front and rear lower quarter sections, and custom wheel well) ... The driver side is in work (new floor pans, floor braces in place).
The engine is out of the car (on a rolling frame).
What will you get to do once you own this project?:
Finish the body work, figure out what to do with the engine (rebuild/replace), redo the interior, assemble the car, and enjoy!! It only takes an hour to do this on TV.
What comes with the car?
EVERYTHING related to 49-54 Chevys that I've acquired over the past 9 years.
Many extra parts: 4:11 rear end, extra set of wheels, trim pieces, and much more
Plenty of documentation: Chevrolet Passenger Car Shop Manual, 3-speed transmission overhaul manual, 12-volt conversion guide, 1950 Chevy owner manual, Fisher body service and construction manual, 1950 Chevrolet specification for passenger cars, body shimming guide, Chevrolet Accessories installation manual for 1950, original service guides poster for 1950 Chevrolet passenger car, Various (not current) parts supplier catalogues (The Filling Station, Chevs of the 40's, Obsolete Chevy Parts Co., National Chevy Parts, Car Shop, EMS, Kanter Auto Products).
This PROJECT car is being sold AS IS and WHERE IT IS (located at Lake Monticello in central VA).
Plenty (over 20 showing the build process over the past 9 years) of pictures currently available on Charlottesville Craigslist
The car is titled in VA in my name.
