This 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe has that cool classic shape we
rarely see. And as you dig deeper, you discover the right
investments that make for a more desirable cruiser - all without
betraying the vintage nature.
This Chevy has all the right curves. The fenders, the hood, and the
wraparound bumper give it that classic front end that could have
only come from Post-War America. Everything from the two-piece
windshield to the torpedo-like rear fenders gives this one a nice
vintage look. So you can tell they took some time to make sure it
stayed feeling like a true classic then they restored this in later
years. So the dark gray paint has the right look of a post-war car,
but the added metallic element lets it radiate the right touch of
nostalgia. There's also an addition of American Racing Torq Thrust
wheels with a nice set of whitewalls. We like it because it adds
flair without being too out of place on this classic. It's just the
right added cruiser attitude a Fleetline deserves. After all, these
are sought-after for the rounded rear that gives it a fastback-like
The right mix of vintage and upgrades returns inside. You can tell
the door panels, carpeting, and headliner were updated later in
life. It makes it feel fresh without getting modern or radical. You
especially understand that with the upholstery. You still get two
wide rows of classic benches, but the beige and brown two-tone is
upgraded to a detailed setup with attractive piping. It does a good
job of upgrading the atmosphere without feeling out of place. There
are even nice details like the working dome light, working AM
radio, and a fully finished trunk. You get a great vintage feeling
just by slipping behind the large and grippy factory wheel and
looking out at the full art deco-style dash. So it's the kind of
cruiser that can turn back the clock.
The engine bay is nicely detailed with the classic AC offset air
intake and an overall tidy style. And they even added a touch of
flair with the head cover painted metallic gray to match the
exterior. The powerhouse is Chevy's inline-six, and in fact, the
correct-style 216 cubic-inch even has the engine stamp to match the
current VIN. The whole driving experience is about having fun with
a bygone era (after all, if you didn't want nostalgia you'd be
looking for a fuel-injected restomod.) So this one knows how to
keep you in touch with the mechanical feel, right down to the
column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
Complete with title documentation, this is a true classic cruiser
that has a truly irresistible level of style. Call today!!! This
vehicle has a current and clean FL title. Before that was a clean
Michigan title in 2016. However, we do have a national title report
that mentions something about a salvage report in 2021 but is
unclear if it pertains to this vehicle or a different one sharing
similar partial vin numbers. Either way we want any potential buyer
to have this information. Please inquire for more details.
