Hi Guys,

As I am reading the Master Parts Catalog, it appears that the vent window (air deflector), the front fender spears (molding), and the front door spears (molding) for a 4 door 1950 are the same for Stylelines and Fleetlines. Can someone attest to this? I thought they would be slightly off, but maybe I am reading it correctly?

Thanks!

You are correct. The general parts below the windows are the same except for the upper window part of the door and trunk lid.

Yes as Gene said, The Fleetline roof line is lower , the upper windshield stainless is shorter, the beltline trim is different also and the rear door handles are specific to the fleetline.

Can you provide the GROUP number you were looking at. It would seem from what I've read thus far, that they would be different parts and therefore have different part numbers.


1951 Fleetline
'51 Fleetline DeLuxe 2 DOOR SEDAN (Fathom Green)
'51 Styleline Special BUSINESS COUPE (Shadow Gray)
'53 6500 Dump Bed (Oxidized Red)
'50 Styleline DeLuxe 4 DOOR SEDAN (Mist Green)

Thanks everyone. In answer to RAM's question, the group number is 10.674.

Its confusing because it only lists Fleetline for those years and the only different one listed is for Bel Airs and Convertibles. But now upon further checking, the glass is different 3 pages earlier and lists different glass.for Styleline 49-50. The glass group is 10.578.

Never mind! I see what I did wrong! Vent frame (they call it channel) is 10.655. It is different! My apologies! Deflector is the rain piece.

I think I'm going to try and buy an actual master parts catalog off Ebay. I love the website where all that is uploaded, but I think it would be easier to navigate and catch my mistakes if I had a paper copy of the book. What year range would you guys recommend? I see several editions. Would 1929-1954 suffice, or should I go into the 60s?

Avoid the 60's versions. Many of the parts were out of production by GM by then, and the parts listings removed from the catalog. I bought a -64 version a while back for cheap. Useful for the early 60's cars, not so much for ours.

I would get the -54 copy. It will be the most complete. The -57 version is helpful too, but I just reference the -57 version on Keith Hardy's website when needed.

Is there any difference between the printed versions and Keith's website? I'm always leery on the print quality of reprints. I like the website because I can take screenshots of specific items and build my own reference library. This is where a cheap computer in the shop comes in handy.

Both of mine are originals and the print quality is good. The -57 parts book is reproduced, but the cost seemed high to me. So I looked for cheap, well-used originals.

Some of the reproduced shop manuals are terrible.
