MotoeXotica Classic Cars is happy to present this fully restored and upgraded 1948 Chevrolet Sedanette Restomod. This black beauty features a GM 307 CID V-8 under it's domed hood linked to a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and features full stainless steel dual exhaust with electric cut-offs. With the flip of a switch, you can alternate between using the full exhaust system to avoid a citation for disturbing the peace while in town and enjoying the full-throated sounds of the engine's song on the open road as the exhaust exits just downstream of the headers. One of the best details of this stunning Chevrolet is its custom one off stainless steel headers! Take a good look at them in the photos because they are beautifully made! Recently installed parts on this Chevy have been a new Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor, new Champion radiator, new performance fan and a new air cleaner. The paint is deep, lustrous and thickly applied. The glass panels are in great shape, haze-free and intact. The vehicle's lights are clear, crack-free and look good. The car is equipped with wide whitewall radial tires, 205/75R14 in front and 225/75R15 in rear surrounding red steel wheels topped by full Chevy moon hubcaps. All of the body panels are straight the bumpers, which are painted body color, look great and the engine bay is very tidy. The car wears the face of a 1947 Sedanette, however, as there's no vertical bar in the center of the grille, which would mark the car as a 1948, it is titled as a '48. The trunk opens via electric popper and there is a spotlight on the driver's side A-pillar, which gives the car an extra touch of Dick Tracy. Inside, the car sports a new and professionally-installed interior that looks rich and is a striking brown/black. The seats look great, as do the carpet, headliner and complimentary metal instrument panel. Period elements include a tissue dispenser mounted beneath the glovebox, a compass mounted to the upper windshield frame and a rubberized fan attached to the center windshield post to keep the driver cool. The two-spoke steering wheel and shifter are in good shape and the door panels are in good order and match the seats. Completing the interior look are Auto Meter ancillary gauges and a factory AM radio that is hooked up to a Bluetooth amp and a single speaker. Horn is inop. The 1948 Series 2100 FK Fleetmaster was again little changed from the previous year. There were no significant body alterations, however the radiator grille featured a vertical center bar. 1948 total U.S. production: Fleetline Aerosedan - two-door 211,861 Fleetline Sportmaster - four-door sedan 64,217 The exterior sported smooth curves, and chrome and stainless trim. In the earlier models, the rear bumper had an optional center bumper guard that had to be ratcheted out of the way so the trunk cover could be lifted. Front and rear bumpers had optional chrome "tips", a dress-up item that bolted to the ends of the stock bumper. Not a Chevrolet option but a popular after market feature was a large external sunshade that protected the driver from glare off of the metal dash board. Competition to this Chevy in 1948 included Dodge's Custom four-door, Ford's Deluxe Fordor and the Nash 600 four-door. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
