For Sale: 1946 Chevrolet Panel Delivery in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 share.

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 shine.

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!!!
