This 1950 Chevrolet Styleline DeLuxe four-door is sporting a few period extras from the day: whitewalls, wheel trim rings, rear fender skirts, and, my favorite, an “I Like Ike” sticker on the back bumper. I thought this was really remarkable… until I did a Google search and found that these are available (complete with patina) online for just $6.29 plus tax & shipping. Then again, this one might really be original — who knows!? The 1950 Chevys were available in a large range of body styles: two- and four-door sedans in both the Styleline (regular-style roof) and Fleetline (fastback) models, sport coupe, business coupe, convertible, station wagon, and the Bel Air two-door hardtop. And, just like yesterday’s 1950 Pontiac RealRide, there were still no V8 engines in the Chevrolet stable. Saw this one a couple of weeks ago while driving through Lancaster.
