At first, we won't even mention the historical significance of this
1946 Chevrolet Panel Delivery. Instead, we'll give you a moment to
look at the vintage detailed style inside and out of this two-tone
example before we talk about this Chevy's cool story you'll love to
1946 was an important year in America's industrial history. We were
getting moving after WWII, and delivery vehicles were at the heart
of it. So while this Chevy looked a lot like the pre-war vans, this
was part of the first full post-war production year. Chevrolet
would change the style again in '47, so these are an interesting
single-year designation. That's why you take the time to get a
classic like this looking so good. For example, black and green is
a period-correct two-tone, but there's a level of gloss you just
didn't get back in the day. It's not too fancy to drive, but it
does have the kind of impressiveness that will get your business
remembered just for writing its name on the side. And the details
on this one are also terrific. There's a distinctive windshield
sunshade, full running boards, color-matched wheels, and whitewall
tires with a matching side spare. Post-war America also meant
getting back to brightwork, and so the extra tall grille, bumpers,
and two-piece Chevrolet wheel covers all have a great mirror-like
The interior is all about keeping this feeling fresher without
taking away from the vintage atmosphere. So you have the art deco
dash, big steering wheel, two-piece windshield, and springy bucket
seats. There are even cool features for display only like the
heater and AM radio. Those big double rear doors swing wide to
reveal the large cargo area with clean and uncluttered walls. And
we love how the floor is still real wood and also ready to get to
work. So it's impressive no matter if it's all alone or you feature
your product back there.
Under the hood is a correct-style 216 cubic-inch inline-six. It
looks impressively stock and clean, so you can tell there was a
thoughtful investment here much later in life. So you have a
show-quality presentation everywhere from the fresh block paint to
the correct decal on the air cleaner. It feels quite strong and you
take proper control with the three-speed manual transmission. As
you get down the road, the rhythmic tune of the exhaust is part of
the full package that gives you quite an authentic 1940s feel.
This 1946 Chevrolet Panel Delivery is a distinct classic that can
be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. Someone gets to
tell its story, and so you might want to hurry if it's going to be
you. Call today!!!
