1948 Chevrolet Stylemaster Coupe
The Stylemaster was introduced by Chevrolet in 1946 and only lasted
3 years before being discontinued in 1948. It was the base trim
level and later replaced by the Styleline. These cars had a neat
look and were the last of the 40s style vehicles as we moved into
the 50s where fenders started to be more incorporated into the
body. This 48 has had a full restoration and belonged to the
current owner since 2012. We believe it has been a Texas car its
whole life. The car was entirely gone through and a lot more than
our asking price was invested into the build. The new paint is a
nice Black color and the body has been totally rust free since new.
Paired perfectly with the Black paint is all of the original style
chrome and stainless trim. These cars wore a big prominent chrome
grill which is nicely mounted in place as are the original bumpers.
The glass has all been replaced and it has the split two piece
windshield up front. The car has the standard headlights/taillights
but also incorporates fog lights on the bumper and spotlights on
each side. The doors shut nice and solid and everything seals up
well with all new weatherstripping throughout. The car rides on
aftermarket Pacer wheels wrapped in nice BF Goodrich tires.
Under the hood is the original 216c.i. straight 6 cylinder motor
that has been entirely rebuilt and converted to a 12 V system. The
block and heads are painted Blue and topped off with a nice chrome
valve cover. The car has a great sound with headers into dual
exhaust. The motor is mated to a 3 speed manual transmission and
the original rear end. During the build a new wiring harness and an
electric ignition was installed. It also received a set of disc
brakes up front and a rebuilt suspension system.
The interior was completely redone as well in a nice Grey
upholstery. It has a split bench seat up front which features an
aftermarket set of seatbelts. The dash has a nice combination of
originality and customizations with a set of new white faced
Dolphin gauges. It also has a Vintage AC/Heat system with custom
controls mounted below the passengers side of the dash. In front of
the driver sits the original accessory steering wheel as well as
the column shifter. The trunk was redone as well and offers a ton
of additional storage space.
This cool classic has a lot going for it and is being offered up at
a great price. It isn't often you can get into the classic car
