1952 Chevrolet Other delux Additional Info:

I have owned this car since 2008. It had 44603 miles on it then. It has never let me down. Except forthe rear end it is a stock drive train. I upgraded the rear end with one out of a 52 that had a powerglide transmission. It is geared higher and allows you to go 65mph all day long, even 70 for short distance.(passing) This is a great improvement. It will need a axel seal replaced on the left side. It runs great, stops straight, and shifts smoothly. It has no oil filter, that was anoption then, and not ordered.I changed it every 3000 miles.250 miles on a recent tune up. Cooling system works well. I always wanted to add a fan shroud, but never did. It is not stoc, but it would be an improvement. Electrics are 6 volt.Charging system works well.1year old battery.All lights work except the left headlight. It went out last week. I added turn signals, also an option in 52. Brake shoesrelined, cylinders rebuilt, and exhaust when I bought it. I painted it stock colors the 2nd year I had it.It is a base and clear coat. Itwas a simple mask and paint, nota complete tear down job. New rocker panels were installed then. There are a few spots of rust starting to pop through in a couple of places and some slight bubbling on one of the doors.Body fillerwas usedwhen needed.There is a little paint flaking on both ends of therear bumper filler.The license plate light is original paint, and it works. All stainless is in good shape. Front bumper and grill also rear bumper were rechromed 11 years ago. A 1 inch by 3 inch piece of the plating has came off the front bumper. It happened this year and there is no rust there.The bottom louver of the grill has some pitting. SOS will shine it right up.Stock for 52 dog dish hub caps with nice custom painted rims.Not the original color. Tires are good.Color matched fender skirts. I would still give it a strong 6 to a 7 on close inspection, and the pictures speak for themselves at 10 to 20 feet. Trunk is clean and solid with the original mat. Original spare tire with jack also. The tire has neverbeen used, and still has the nubs present. Also it is the stock color and pin stripping on it. It is the light green with 2 black pin stripes. Underneath has scaly rust and road grime as u would expect from a 65 year old driver. There is a small quarter size rust through on the rider side front at the very outside edge. It was there when I bought it and has not got any bigger. Interior is original except the carpet. Stains on the front door panels from bad door seals. Seals will be included. Front seat back has a 6 inch tear on the driver side. That is why there is a blanket over it. It hasn't got any bigger The top of the back seat has a large tear due to sun rot. You are not in contact with it when you sit in the seat. Both seats are very comfortable. Venecian blinds in the rear window.Steering wheel is nice with a flip away knob.There are small cracks around the front vent windows around the handles. This is a common and they are still working fine. All other glass is good. Front windshield seal needs replaced. Seal comes with the car. Lots of nice paper work including the original work order and owners manual. I will get more pictures a.s.a.p. Phone number is (760) 260-9387 Jeff

To sum it up, this is a very nice driver quality car that will getyou proudly where you want to go Not very fas, but you don't have to be fast when your arecool.
