Description for Chevrolet Coupe 1948
The exceptionally curvaceous body of the 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster is the perfect place to start for the full hot rod treatments. With everything from a full flame paintjob to a performance-built 350 crate motor, you know it has all the right moves on the streets. But what you might not expect are all the extras, like the four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and A/C interior.The job of a car like this is to standout in all the best ways. The superb bodywork includes all the right investments in a custom, including shaving the door handles, adding sport mirrors, LED taillights, lowering the suspension, and chopping inches out of the roofline so it has that unmistakable custom appearance from the first moment you lay eyes on it. And speaking of first impressions, it's hard to get cooler than the custom two tone blue and teal that's separated by those awesome custom flames. It's the kind of bold standout that means even traditionally chromed areas like the grille, bumpers, and headlight surrounds were either painted or deleted so the effect could be much more modern and dramatic. But it wouldn't be a true American street rod without some brightwork, and now that comes from the custom American Racing wheels.The gray cloth interior is a complete custom job, because after all, there were no comfortable high-back bucket seats in the 40s. Comfort is a central theme here, with a custom-made center console that includes cup holders. Power windows and a power driver's seat were added, along with a well-integrated air conditioning system that runs modern R134a. The driver gets a terrific gray and chrome Lecarra steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of VDO gauges, including a tach.The engine is a 350 cubic-inch Chevy V8, which is the perfect choice for hitting the road at any time. This crate motor comes with enhanced performance from elements like the Weiand intake and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. Combined with the dual exhaust, you get a great hot rod sound that's still totally streetable. And that's exactly how to view this custom build. It has plenty invested under the hood, including new components like the A/C compressor, alternator, crank pulley, power steering box, and harmonic balancer pulley. Plus, the suspension has been upgraded to a Mustang II-style independent unit, and there's also the upgrade to four-wheel disc brakes. If this is beginning to sound like the custom that you can comfortably drive long distances, you'd be correct. It even has a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive.A great custom look on the outside, all the right conveniences on the inside, and a strong crate motor under the hood this Chevy is truly the total package. So hurry up before someone else grabs the custom classic you can use every day. Call now!!!
