Is the proper listing Styline De Luxe Bel Air or De Luxe Bel Air, since we have both for the 1950-1952 model [2154]?

I think Cougartim is right. Despite there is a classification in the site for Chevrolet De Luxe Bel Air /vehicles_make-Chevrolet_model-De+Luxe+Bel+Air.html ; in those years before 150, 210 and Bel Air, Chevrolet had the lines production for Fleetline(s) and Styleline(s) and both in Special and De Luxe variations and that two lines were until 1952.
Now I don't remember from where I got this official Chevy Specs but I saved some years for my info. Here for 1952 but for the reason what we are speaking about, the Bel Air, is the same for 50, 51 and 52.

As you can see the Bel Air is inside the Styleline De Luxe Series [2100] code chassis [2154]

So despite this answer
big dave wrote Here's the 1952 brochure Mike, just calls it - The Bel-Air - Link to "www.oldcarmanualproject.com"
and link provide, for the same reason we couldn't say 1950-52 Chevrolet Styleline Convertible but only 1950-52 Chevrolet Convertible and the Convertible was clearly inside the Styline series
So I think Dynamike was right when he answered
DynaMike wrote Great, Dave! Quite convincing, indeed, but not yet 100%: the convertible and the wagon also don't have the Styleline DeLuxe name, since these were not available as Styleline Special. Also the Bel Air had chassis code [2154] in the years 1950-1952, [21..] for the Styleline DeLuxe series, [..54] for the hardtop coupe version, whereas since 1953 there were four Bel Air models (2-door sedan, 4-door sedan, convertible and hardtop coupe) with the code [24xx], apart from the Two-Ten DeLuxe series (7 models with [21xx]).
It is fine with me to leave it listed just as Bel Air tout court, but I was only wondering and nickpicking (and, like all of us, reaching the most possible accuracy).


For all those reasons I think the classification of Chevrolet De Luxe Bel Air must be changed for Chevrolet Styleline De Luxe Bel Air, being Bel Air just extra info as we have already listed some of them. SEE

About the car in main pic I agree is a 1951 but if you also agree with my previous opinion the classification of Chevrolet De Luxe Bel Air should be changed into Chevrolet Styleline De Luxe Bel Air. Comments?

About trim names, for some well known names we put them in the same field as model name, like for various GTI models, Firebird Trans Am, etc.
In this case it may be included too, if useful.

I got that naming convention from the Dammann book. I was not sure how you guys have own naming convention :/

From the same captures I did about Chevrolet Specs., in the page of 'vehicles weights' there are two tables, one for Fleetline and other for Styleline. The 1st. row on left is the code chassis of each model, in this case [2154]; and in the row of 'Description' I mark in red arrow what it's 'De Luxe Bel Air'.

In same captures and source I got the pages of 'Body Interior Dimensions' and for this model in the lower part of the page red marked 'Styleline De Luxe Bel Air [2154]
[Image: 222184-5.jpg]

And finally from another source, cadvision.com and here with the proper link, we can see the 51 and 52 models where it says also Styleline De Luxe Bel Air, both marked in red arrows.

I think we can agree that the correct name for the model is Styleline De Luxe and maybe, being Bel Air a very well known name, even Bel Air part of the model name. But, before any change in previuos classifications that would reach to this and this one, I would wish some type of general agreement with all of you

Thanks for your investigations, Vilero!
I think you're right in wanting to have listed these cars as Styleline De Luxe Bel Air. But indeed better to wait for some more support (or disagreement)...
