Description for Chevrolet Other 1949

1949 CHEVROLET Deluxe Business Coupe Click on the arrow in the picture below to see video that includes more photos. Double click on the arrow below to go to full screen. In 1949 General Motors came out with one of their most iconic body styles the business coupe. This meant that the trunk was extra long and a short round roof to accommodate the extra long trunk. These cars were known as ‘bubble tops’ because the roof was very round like a bubble. This particular body at General Motors was used on Chevrolets. Pontiacs and Oldsmobiles. The most iconic of the bubble tops from 1949-50 (the same body in both years). was the 1950 Oldsmobile Bubble Top Coupe. The reason that this was the most popular with the hotrodders is that the Oldsmobile had a V8 engine where the Chevrolet had a straight six and the Pontiac had a flat head straight eight. Chevy used a 2-speed power glide but Pontiac and Oldsmobile used the 4-speed Hydramatic. Well just leave it up to some of the retro rodders like the gentleman that turned this 1949 Chevrolet Bubble Top (Business Coupe) into a true retro rod that surpasses even the iconic 1950 Oldsmobile bubble top. Yes! This car has it all. a 350 c. i. Chevy V8 bolted up to a 350 turbo automatic transmission. a full leather interior and much. much more. This car has all the great styling of the bubble top enhanced by all the modern conveniences that get you out on the road to cruise (at more then legal speeds) all day long. You can pack up you and your gal. fill up the humongous trunk with all you will need for a long-distance 3 week tour and head out in style and not to have to worry about the dependability of the car. You can cruise around the United States collecting fabulous stories and pictures to share with your friends and grandchildren.

In early 2008. I decided that I would like to have an older car in good condition like the one that I drove as a young man. I set in mind to take my time and choose a car with the following qualities: A reliable drive that is built right. Built with quality & safety in mind. Air conditioning and heat. A head turner that can be shown. For over a year. using the Internet. going to car shows. reading magazines and having had two cars professionally inspected and appraised (negatively). I was ready to give up. On a whim. I flew to a Good Guys Car Show. There was nothing in the ‘car corral’ that interested me. However. at the show. I fell in love with a ’49 Chevy. To my dismay. it was not for sale. After numerous visits. I spoke with the owner/builder about the cr. I found out the drive train 350/350 was fairly new. The front end was from a Chevy Two with P/S and P/D/B. cold a/c and rear end from a Camaro. He stated he had taken over 300-400 mile trips with confidence. I knew then this car what I’ve been looking for. In talking. he mentioned he would consider selling it. I test drove it and loved it! WE had agreed on a price. I had it inspected. purchased and delivered within a week. I’ve never regretted my decision. In the past five years. I have driven it locally and long distance. I made upgrades including full undercoating. more chrome. new exhaust system. AM/FM/CD player. new tires and a custom leather (cowhide) interior including headliner. Be prepared to draw a crowd at the gas station. supermarket or anywhere you park! 1949 Chevrolet 2 door coupe. Body: Dark champagne. Roof: Chocolate. 350/350 Turbo Auto Nicely appointed. P/S P/F/D/B. Cold A/C. Heat. P/W American Racing Mags New Tires AM/FM/CD Player All leather custom interior Seller has indicated that the car currently has a new non-GM speedometer/odometer showing approximately 18. 00 miles. believed to be the original miles since the 350 V8 engine was installed. So the car is being sold as mileage unknown. If you had to build one of these cars. chances are you cannot afford it. The owner on this car has set a very attractive reserve so that everybody can bid. Just check out the great looks of this car in its fabulous Champagne & Chocolate paint. the matching leather interior. the detailed V8 engine compartment and the very tidy trunk. While we cannot disclose the reserve per the seller’s instructions. we can tell you that the reserve is set at about 20% of what it would cost you to build the car itself.
