This 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster sedan has a bright look that tells
you it wants to be a true cruiser. So what you'll appreciate is a
mix of classic style with just the right upgrades that will make it
more fun to enjoy without taking away from that feeling of post-war
This Chevy has all the right curves. The alligator hood, tall
grille, and long fenders that extend into the door give it a
classic front end that showcases grand cruising style. In fact,
it's hard not to feel like this is a special stand-out car. After
all, these Chevys had their roots in pre-WWII time, but the design
was updated slightly for peacetime. And so the bright turquoise
paint captures the attitude of the time with a cheerfulness and
renewed hope that was spreading across the USA at the time. And
since this is the kind of car that likes to spread joy, you'll see
the full package was built to look good while keeping a
driver-quality and driver-ready style. That's why all four doors
close with confidence, the panels line up nicely, there's a newer
set of classic whitewalls, and the trim looks complete and bright.
It makes for a memorable cruiser.
The interior is the right mix of vintage and well-integrated
upgrades. For example, the comfy cloth seats have an updated
pattern and a nice feel. It's nothing too outrageous to be out of
place for a 1940s machine, and with matching door panels, it looks
quite correct. And a good-looking black on the carpet, headliner,
and dash make this all nicely coordinated. It makes for a car that
will attract everyone from true classic fans to casual enthusiasts,
and since these sedans have a terrific amount of room, it's easy to
take everyone for a drive. This true cruiser attitude is especially
felt from the driver's seat. You have the classic Chevy steering
wheel, but beyond that, the art deco dash is now filled with
upgraded readouts. There's even a tach where the clock used to be.
And the upgrade to a 12-volt electrical system means it's easy to
add features like a modern stereo or other features to make the
drive more comfortable.
Chevy's inline-six was the backbone of the company for decades, so
it's a welcomed sight under the hood. We like the clean and dark
style that helps the exterior-matching turquoise details really
pop. And it's not just the color that was upgraded. The 235
cubic-inch unit seen here is larger than what you could get in
1948. So you get a true vintage style with some added pep. Upgrades
like the alternator 12-volt system, newer hoses, a newer belt, and
clean wires are all about reinforcing a strong and confident
cruiser. It feels smooth out on the road, and you'll love the
control that the three-speed manual transmission gives you over
this classic powerplant.
This is a classic with charisma. So if you want to drive something
truly vintage and memorable, call today!
