For Sale: 1948 Chevrolet Stylemaster in Volo, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Extensive custom work, especially to the body. What we have is a great looking street rod that comfortably seats 4 people, looks great and is a smooth cruiser. What a great value too, what we are asking would barely pay for the body and paint work.

EXTERIOR: The list of custom fabrication to the body is long. It has a chopped roof, all the handles, trim and ornaments have been shaved., the doors open by remote. The head lights and antenna are frenched, rear fenders are molded in smooth. It has a relocated fuel door, a 3rd brake light is flush mounted. It has custom mirrors. The dreamsicle paint job is sharp. The 2 tone is broken up by a cool flame job that has metal flake. It also has custom 50s style pinstripe. The paint is glossy and shows really well although it has some flaws. The bumpers and grill was color matched. It has lightly smoked glass with a V- butted windshield. The Boyd's wheels are polished bright.

INTERIOR: Custom tweed and vinyl upholstery throughout. The headliner and door panels have sculpted features. The seat is split, has armrests and the driver side is power. Nice Lecara leather wrapped steering wheel is on a tilt column. The dash area is all custom with matching white gauges, brushed aluminum panel and neatly installed heat/air controls and vents. The Alpine CD stereo feeds 4 speakers.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: The casting number says it's a GM crate 350 motor. It runs real smooth, has an Edelbrock carb with electric choke. It is dressed up with aluminium valve covers, plug wire holders and an oval air cleaner. The front of the motor has polished A/C compressor, alternator and pulleys. An electric fan keeps it cool. It features power steering and power brakes.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big trunk compartment to hold your cooler, folding chairs, luggage etc. It is upholstered to match the inside. The spare has an embroidered 48 Chevy cover. It also has the battery box located in the trunk. A car cover is included.

UNDERSIDE: The bottom of the motor and starter are painted the cream body color. It has a Turbo 350 automatic. In back is a 10 bolt rear end. The exhaust has fat pipes, x-pipe and chrome tips. Stainless fuel tank, electric fuel pump. Independent front suspension. Leaf springs and shocks in back. It has disc brakes in front.

This is a street rod you can cruise and use. It was done over 20 years ago so it's not perfect but it looks great. You won't have $100,000 invested so get out and take the family for ice cream, actually a dreamsickle!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
