OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
In 1949, Chevrolet introduced an entirely new lineup of cars with modern full-width bodies and pontoon fenders, replacing the prewar designs. The new designs came in a range of models in both the Fleetline and Styleline series, with a variety of body types and prices. The most cost-effective model was a business coupe at $1,300, while the most expensive was an eight-passenger station wagon at $2,200. A single powertrain was available; a 216 cu-in six-cylinder engine mated to a three-speed manual transmission. The following year, in 1950, Chevrolet introduced the Powerglide two-speed automatic transmission with the 235 cu-in engine for cars with the automatic option. 1950 marked the brand's best year ever, with passenger car production reaching 1.5 million units.
For 1951, Chevrolet made a few modest improvements over the previous year. An increasing number of customers were opting for automatic transmissions in their cars, like this Styleline De Luxe 4-Door Sedan, which has been upgraded with a Chevrolet small block V8 mated to a newer automatic transmission.
This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Please note that the vehicles in The George Foreman Collection have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention prior to being driven. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.
