Description for Chevrolet Convertible 1948

This stunning DuPont Chromabase BM500 blue resto-mod has been a work in progress since we purchased it in 2002. It is a part of the family but the time has come for us to downsize.

This is a sweet cruiser with a 5.7 Liter, 370 hp /370 lbs torque LS1 that is connected to a sturdy Gran National 200R4 with a Bowler lock up. The 3:42 Motive gears and Eaton Posi in a 10 bolt GM diff are a great combination. The LS1 installation looks like a it came from the factory except there are no wires showing. The computer is hidden behind the front wheel. A Be Cool aluminum radiator keeps the engine and the Sanden compressor keeps the interior cool, even with the top down. Power brakes (disc front and drum rear) and Power Steering.

There are many subtle touches including: LeCarra steering wheel with a old style horn ring and original Fleetmaster horn button, original (non-working) radio, 46 Flying Lady lighted hood ornament, bear claw door latches and much more. The top even has a Hydro-Electric power system.

The DiamondBack BF Goodrich Radial TA (215/65/15 fronts / 215/70/15 rear) White Walls mounted on Smith Custom Wheels (15x6 fronts / 15x7 rears) with original Chevs of the 40’s hubcaps brings it all together.

If you are genuinely interested in this piece of history, I will email you a copy of the show placard that describes the car in detail. I strongly encourage you to come see this wonderful car. Naturally, this is an “as is” sale.

I have priced the car at a fraction of the restoration costs.
