1951 Chevrolet DeLuxe


Owner: Gale Griffith



"Chevrolet Luxury"

Have you ever seen anything quite so purty as this Chevy? We doubt it. In spite of how good it looks in these pics, standing next to it in the light of day makes you marvel. A lot of work went into bringing that PPG paint job to life.

Gale Griffith, the proud owner of this 1951 Chevrolet Delux coupe, spent 17 years tinkering on her in his garage before deciding have retore it for him. We're all glad he did. A perfect compliment to this brilliant red paint job are those Classic Coker Tire white-walls. Baby Moon caps and chrome beauty rings from Wheel Vintiques really add a nice touch. Up front, those tires ride on a TCI independent suspension with airbags. In the rear, they ride on Currie 9-inch rear-end.

The stunning paint job is made all the more so by this white leather interior work performed by Frank's Hot Rods Upholstery in Temecula, Ca. The Wheel Shoppe provided this classic banjo steering wheel, which sits atop a 30-inch ididit tilt steering column. Creature comforts include a Vintage Air AC system and an Am/FM CD stereo system.

Those are Lokar pedals and E-brake down there Under the hood we have a Chevy ZZ4 small-block dressed up with Mooneyes headers, valve-covers, and air cleaner. A Powermaster 70 amp alternator sends juice to an 18 circuit Painless wiring kit. The motor hooks up the rear-end through a 700 R4 transmission and converter from Oceanside Transmission in Oceanside, Ca
