1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Special Two Door
19 March 2007
From David :
Here's the story on the car. Some of the pictures were taken on the Lincoln Highway between Omaha and Elkhorn.
This car was originally purchased by the Jepsen family of Platte Center, Nebraska from Nielsen Chevrolet Company (Chevrolet-Buick) of Columbus, Nebraska offering “Complete One Stop Service” and “Service after the sale” (Phone 2197). The Jepsen family sponsored my Grandfather, George Kaufman, Sr., when he arrived from Russia.
My Father, David L. Kaufman, eventually purchased the car from the Jepsen family. My Father gave me the car and I learned how to drive a manual transmission with this car.
After I took possession of the car, I had the body work and paint done by Mike’s Body and Paint Shop in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1991. The upholstery was done by Don Fazel of Don’s Upholstery in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1991. The seat belts were installed in 2003 by Carl King of SS Auto Trim in Omaha, Nebraska.
Recent mechanical work was done by Stenberg’s in Omaha, Nebraska. The visor is by Fulton.
