eBay Garage Photo of the Week: 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline

Community  /   /  By eBay Motors

Trim: Deluxe
Engine: 3.5L 3548CC 217 Cu. In. l6 GAS OHV Naturally Aspirated

My Fleetline brought the old saying “… better to ask for forgiveness than permisson.” That is how i brought her home and welcomed her with open arms to the family. With the anticipation of slamming her to the ground and adding clutter, I thought about the beautiful lines which cannot be repeated… though she is a four door, with the sloping roof and wondrous details I decided to keep her stock.

As you see, I have done everything imaginable from the ground up to restore her to her former glory. Keeping her stock, mechanically and otherwise was quite an education. Enjoy the photos as you can see love went into the car. 🙂 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline | ebay garage

    Slick wheels, my friend. Glad you kept her stock. The guys that chop ’em and slam ’em, well that’s their thing and more power to them(I envy them their skill), BUT being old school, I prefer those classic lines. Bring ’em into the 21st century mechanically perhaps(well, at least radial tires, Ha Ha!!) and our stockers are just a joy to cruise in. Got a ’50 coupe myself, but one of my best friends from high school(the early 60’s) had a primered 2 door fastback and we did a lot of Sunday cruising in NJ and PA.(when we probably should have been working on that term paper due that week). Enjoy!

    I had the two door version of this car in the same color and restored it to stock (mostly). I sold it about 12 years ago and trout I
    Had found it again. I bought the car in Mill Vally Ca and drove it back to New York. Tha was a trip. I miss that car more than any other of the 55 + cars I have owned. Yours looks terrific!
