For Sale: 1949 Chevrolet Van in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

Established with a well-earned reputation as a reliable workhorse in door-to-door delivery duty, this 1949 Chevrolet Step Van is also a suitable companion for a road trip. Rutledge Wood of TV's Top Gear built this wildly unique piece and took it on the 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour. Hot Rod Magazine's Elana Scherr went along for the ride and wrote, "What was really impressive about the van is that the thing really moved!" A 525 horsepower Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine sees to that. Headers from Summit and exhaust by Magnaflow contribute to the power as well as the "non-stock" sound and attitude. A 4L80E automatic with a Performance Automatic Street Smart Transmission Kit makes the truck easy to drive while providing reliable but spirited performance. Recaro seats and a billet steering wheel on an Ididit tilt column make the driving position unexpectedly comfortable. As for the cosmetics, less is more. The exterior sports the bare metal silver look and the interior features black carpeting and gray walls. It serves to make this a very useful vehicle for hauling. The cargo compartment is unencumbered and it's huge! Subtle custom touches such as chrome grille bars, LED lights, and a steering wheel and road wheels that bring a splash of red demonstrate a tasteful, ultra-contemporary professional design.
