This 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster is quite an interesting classic. It has the look of a proper vintage sedan inside and out, but there's much more going on here. With everything from a cool A/C interior to period-correct hot rod motor upgrades this loves to be an incognito upgraded all-around cruiser.

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 times, but the design was updated slightly for peacetime. And so the accessories like the windshield sunshade, polished exhaust tips, and rear fender skirts capture that cheery cruiser attitude that came from the end of rationing. 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. So the factory-correct Live Oak Green was resprayed later in life to keep a clean style. Plus, all four doors close with confidence, the panels line up nicely, 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. A good look for the door panels, carpet, and headliner makes the full package quite inviting. And since these sedans have a terrific amount of room, it's easy to take everyone for a drive. They even upgraded you to cold-blowing air conditioning so that everyone truly stays comfortable... and when was the last time you found that in a 1940s classic?! This may be upgraded, but the vintage steering wheel and Art Deco symmetrical dash make sure your driving position feels like a true classic cruiser.

Under the hood, this one continues to mix vintage and upgrades. You still have the classic Chevy inline-six style, but its 261 cubic-inch motor cubic-inch displacement is larger than what was available in '48. Not only does it have a cool Offenhauser ribbed head cover, but also there have been some upgrades in pep with an Offenhauser intake, dual-barrel carburetors, and Fenton split headers feeding the true dual exhaust. There are even nice supporting additions like an Optima red top battery and an HEI distributor. So it fires up readily, idles smoothly, and runs nicely. The full package is designed to give you a vintage feeling going down the road, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. But it also has the right confidence with updates like the modern touring tires.

This is a classic with charisma. So if you want to drive something truly vintage and memorable, call today!
