Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1948

The attraction here is not just that you can get a 1948 Chevrolet 3100 with the desirable 5-window style and cool patina look. It's that this awesome package also has nice upgrades like a big Caddy V8 and four-wheel disc brakes. A patina pickup always has a cool and confident look. The appearance is like telling the world, "I was getting things done when you were still in diapers." And this one really goes the extra mile with... the grille, bumpers, and badging matching this well-earned worn-in look. Even the real wood slates in the truck bed match this attitude. But you also instantly notice something more. The modern 18-inch Ridler wheels on a lowered stance not only remind you that this was built less than 500 miles ago, but also signal there are some nice upgrades beneath the skin. The desirable 5-window cab make the inside nice and bright. They made some nice investments here to make this comfortable without losing the classic attitude. For example, the modern bench seat is just like what you'd fit in a truck like this if the original bench wore out after 70+ years of service. So now you have a fold-down armrest and modern bolstering on the comfy cloth, so this can also feel like individual bucket seats. Gray carpeting, door panels, and dash means this all coordinates well. Plus, upgrades like the wood-rimmed steering wheel and crisp Dolphin gauges improve the driving experience. Under the hood is where this one cannot disguise its upgraded nature any longer. The big Caddy 500 cubic-inch V8 is a huge improvement over the original, and so it announces it proudly with the red Cadillac script valve covers boldly radiating from within the engine bay. The freshness of this build is seen in the fundamentals, like the good belts, wires, and hoses. Plus, you have an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The big V8 inhales deeply with a Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound out of the dual exhaust. Power steering makes it easy to drive in town. Plus, a four-wheel disc brakes upgrades and the grip of modern performance tires really gives this classic pickup modern confidence. But you still get that old-school feeling thanks to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission. This has the look we all want and the power we all desire, so you know a well-done package like this won't stay long at this price. Call today!!!
