This 1948 Chevrolet 3800 five-window is a nicely restored pickup
with all the right extras. After all, it's an extra-duty long bed
one-ton Chevy that now also features extra power from the V8, an
extra gear from the overdrive transmission, and extra charm from
its upgraded appearance.
Trucks are supposed to be utilitarian, but Chevy did it with style.
The Advance Design pickup really lived up to its name with sleek
fenders, chrome bumpers, and a bright five-bar grille that follows
the contour established by the hood. They really took their time
restoring this one, and so that great classic style is proudly on
display. And the extra-long bed means you get even more real lumber
on the floor. But you can also tell there's something more here.
The blue paint has a crisp and modern luster that signals this one
has been upgraded. And while those Pacer wheels have a great shine,
they also show off the 3800's correct stronger 8-bolt pattern.
There's even a modern trailer hitch on the rear.
The desirable five-window cab lets in more light so you can really
see the upgraded interior. The seat looks nice with a tasteful
black as well as comfy tweed inserts for where you sit. Even the
door panels were done to match. This retains the classic style
where it can, like in the dash design, but they also upgraded it to
be a better modern driver. You see it in well-integrated pieces,
like the wood-rimmed steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that
is an upgraded gauge package that fits within the classic dash
While Chevy's inline six was the right powerhouse for '48, this one
has been upgraded into a more modern era. It's Chevy's now-famous
350 cubic-inch small block V8. The smooth firewall and polished
pieces make it easy to show off. Plus, you'll really like that it
has been upgraded for extra power. This includes an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers
feeding the dual exhaust. You'll even spot good upgrades for modern
driving, like the MSD distributor and an electric fan. It makes for
a powerhouse that's both strong and smooth. And the 700R4
four-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit that provides the
right gearing for both work time or just overdrive ease. Plus, the
power steering and deep tread on modern tires make this a well done
The Chevy 3800 pickup was always built for providing you with
extra, and this one really takes that into modern times with extra
power, smoothness, and comfort. Call today!!!
