The Stylemaster was produced by Chevrolet from 1946 through 1948. It was essentially an updated 1942 Master Deluxe. The main distinguishing difference of the 1948 model is that the radiator grill featured a vertical center bar. This particular example was converted to sweet Street Rod about 10 years ago and no expense was spared. The body is laser straight and is 100% metal. Additionally the hood has been louvered, the gas door was frenched in and the door handles were shaved. It is adorned .....
with a gorgeous metallic maroon basecoat that has metallic red flames with blue pinstripes. The chrome was also all redone and it looks awesome sitting on its Billet Specialties chrome 15" rims with spinners. The heart of this sweet rod is a performance built 454 that was bored .030 over just before being installed in this car so technically it is now a 460. It was built with a streetable cam that has a great lope to it. It is fed via a Holley 850cfm Double Pumper, it is sparked by a MSD 6A ignition and it sounds just plain nasty ripping through its ceramic coated headers and dual performance exhaust. The engine bay sparkles with its chrome starter, chrome a/c compressor, billet pulleys and the valve covers. Intake and air cleaner have been painted with the same color metallic red that was used for the flames. It has power steering, power disc brakes up front and a coil over suspension. Power is put to the Ford 9" posi rear end with a freeway friendly 3:25 gear ratio via a performance built T400 transmission. The interior is a gorgeous tan leather with full power seats from a much newer vehicle. It has an Ididit chrome steering column with tilt, a gorgeous chrome LeCarra steering wheel and all of the other interior chrome was replated when the car was built. It has a complete set of Vintage Reproduction gauges for the voltage, oil pressure, water temp, fuel level as well as a speedometer with an odometer. It also an Auto Meter tach mounted in the custom center console. You will also appreciate the power door poppers, power windows and it has a custom BT stereo with a monitor for a rear view camera mounted in the custom overhead console. The stereo is powered by a 1000 watt 4 channel amp with 6.5" speakers up front and 6X9s in the rear. To build a car like this today would cost over 6 figures. This is an opportunity to get it for a fraction of what it cost so if you want to park this sweet street rod in your garage you should get in touch with us before someone else does!
