For Sale: 1948 Chevrolet Aero Sedan in Mokena, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Chevy Fleetline
Aero Sedan
"Among the prettiest of General Motors bodies of the 1940s are the fastback coupes. Chevrolet's version, the Fleetline Aerosedan, arrived with the new series of A-bodies in 1942. "Fleetline" designated a sub-series of Chevy's up-market model, called "Special Deluxe" before World War II and "Fleetmaster" afterwards. Better appointed than the rest of the model range, Fleetlines had three bold horizontal moldings on each fender and special fabrics inside. There were two body styles: the Sportmaster four-door sedan, a notchback with unique "four-window" configuration, and the fastback Aerosedan coupe.
There are over 120 pictures of this car in the ad below, including detailed exterior, interior, engine, trunk and undercarriage. Scroll down after the description and let them load on your computer, it will take some time because of the size.

For sale by owner is this incredible, rare 1948 Chevy Aero Sedan. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, we say the pictures tell it all.� Please let them all load, (there are over 130) to see the great condition of this classic Chevy Street Rod. The current owner received this car from longtime friend in 2009 (who owned the car for over 30 years) after he became ill and could not complete the restoration. Professionally restored from top to bottom, completed in 2011 and built to be a show car, this car was finished with the best of everything. The car is all steel and only new old stock parts were used during the build. The original engine is long gone, replaced with a rebuilt Chevy 350 V-8, mated to a TH 350 3-speed automatic transmission, both out of a 1974 Chevy. It had a stunning show quality base coat/clear repaint by Top Gun in Rockdale Illinois, who also painted the 2004 Riddler award winner. The interior has been completely redone with custom leather, 24 carrot gold plated gauges and Billet accents. The underside has been redone with a Mustang II front end and it has power steering and power front disc brakes. The engine has a mild cam and it rides, handles and looks terrific. We don't know all the details of the build, what follows is what we do know.
