Classic Car Overview
This gorgeous bright red 1948 Chevrolet pickup truck is an exceptional example that has been custom frame-off restored to exacting standards. The striking stance of the 48’ catches your eye – compliments of the lowered a-arm front and leaf spring rear suspension systems and aggressive Coys Custom wheel combination. The ½ ton pickup’s all-steel body has been restored to better-than-new condition with excellent fit of all panels and features a custom 3” roof chop. The laser-straight bodywork is covered in radiant red paint and accented by the chrome bumpers and exceptional trim and brightwork. Power-assisted steering as well as power front disc brakes make driving a pleasure. Inside the pickup bed is a diamond plate floor that features a custom tilting bed cover accented with stainless steel fasteners. A truck with these good looks should also have the powertrain to match and this 1948 does not disappoint. Under the hood is a carbureted 350 cubic-inch engine covered in many polished high-performance components. This small block is mated to the proven Turbo 350 automatic transmission which then transfers the power to the pavement via the sturdy 10-bolt GM rear axle. The Chevrolet makes all the right sounds with its dual exhaust system. Inside the cabin you will find an exceptional gray leather custom upholstered interior featuring such amenities as air conditioning, tilt steering column, and VDO gauges just to name a few. A treasured part of the Rick Hendrick Heritage Collection this pickup is fully serviced and ready for any car show or Sunday cruise! Classic Chevrolet pickups built to this caliber do not come around too often, so don’t miss your chance to own one of the sharpest early models available today!
