Description
 
Fairfield County Concours dElegance First Place Award Winner! Optioned with the Country Club Package, fender skirts, spotlights, and more! Beautiful car! First popularized in the early 1940s, fastback coupes became all the rage when automobile production resumed after WWII. As a sub-series of the Fleetmaster full-size line, the Fleetline re-debuted in 1946 as both a very sleek two-door fastback Aero Sedan and a four-door sedan Sportmaster. By 1948, the car had undergone very few changes, most notably a center support pillar in the grille. 1948 proved to be the single highest production year of Fleetline cars, with some 276,078 produced, of which 211,861 were Aero Sedans. This was 27% of total Chevrolet production in 1948! Unique to the Aero Sedan was the optional dealer-installed Country Club wood trim. Manufactured by Engineered Enterprises of Detroit, this was a rare option, most likely the result of its $149.95 sticker price! We are thrilled to offer this 1948 Chevrolet Fleetline Aero Sedan! Finished in its original Oxford Maroon hood, fenders and roof with correct ash and mahogany wood panels, the car is sure to catch eyes wherever it goes! Equipped with its original 216.5ci Stovebolt Inline-6, the car survives today in magnificent mechanical condition. Showing only 47,000 miles, all indications back this up as original but we do not have enough evidence to verify. This woody includes all the original features including: 3-speed column-shift manual transmission, under seat heater, vent, shades, outside rear-view mirrors, fog lights, dual spotlights, pushbutton AM radio, a fully functional 8-day dash clock, fender skirts, Firestone Deluxe Champion wide white walls, front and rear bumper guards, truck guard, fender stone guards, tissue dispenser and deluxe wheel covers! Of special note is the LOF Hi-Test Safety Plate glass that is date-coded to 1948. Since 2010, this car has over $20,000 in receipts indicating an assortment of expensive rebuilds and replacements. The following are new: wheel bearings, torque tube, brake master cylinder, hood springs, clutch, wiper motor actuator, fuel tank, rear main seal. The carburetor, rear end and transmission have all been removed, cleaned and rebuilt. The front and rear suspensions have been removed, rebuilt as needed and painted before reinstallation. The seats were covered in plastic until 2010 and despite being 60+ years old, have survived unscathed. From every angle, this Aero Sedan is strikingly original in its appearance and for this reason took home top honors at both AACA and Concours events. This investment-quality woody is being sold in like-new condition. Whether cruising to the drive-in or heading to the beach, this Woody has clearly been loved by its previous owners and draws crowds wherever it goes! Please feel welcome to call with additional questions or schedule an opportunity to view in person. We look forward to working with you!
