1949 CHEVROLET FLEETLINE CUSTOM C-817 If you have been searching for a unique classic Street Rod that will separate you from all of the others out there, and most importantly, one that won't drain the bank account, I think we have just the car for you! We offer you this gorgeous 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Custom! The restoration/build was done about 15 years ago, but this Chevy Street Rod still looks beautiful today. It was part of a very large collection in St. George, Utah, who has a staffed mechanic that keeps all of the vehicles meticulously maintained. A lot of time & effort was spent on the body work, which features smoothed hood, smoothed trunk, one-piece windshield, custom headlights, custom taillights, 3rd brake light, and several other unique features that give this car that one-of-a-kind appearance. The paint is a special Electric Blue Pearl, which changes color from blue to purple depending on the lighting, and looks outstanding on this car! The paint has been buffed & polished to a mirror-like shine that literally explodes in the sunlight. She sits on 16 inch polished Cragar Mags, wrapped w/ Michelin XGT radial tires all around (P215/60/R16). You can walk around this car a dozen times and it simply looks great from every angle. Overall handling has been greatly improved by installing a Mustang II front suspension, power front disc brakes, power steering, new air shocks, along w/ a Posi-traction rear-end and a set of traction bars when it's time to get up and GO! Open the driver's door and you will find a nice cream-colored vinyl & cloth bucket-seat interior w/ console. Other interior features include: matching vinyl & cloth door panels, matching vinyl dashboard w/ a chrome dash insert and a full set of VDO vintage-style gauges, tilt-steering column, wrapped Lecarra 4-spoke steering wheel, Auto Gage tachometer (mounted on steering column), console mounted ratchet shifter, Vintage air conditioning, Kenwood KDC-135 AM/FM/CD receiver, (6) Jensen speakers, matching cream-colored carpeting throughout, and front seat-belts. The interior is very comfortable as well as highly functional, and although it is an older style interior, it still looks quite nice. Pop open the hood and you will find a beautifully dressed-up 350ci Chevy V8 engine that was originally a TPI motor from a 1990 Corvette. The TPI was removed, and a Holley 750cfm carburetor was installed, which really brought the motor to life. Other features include: aluminum heads, roller cam, polished Edelbrock Performer EPS intake manifold, HEI ignition, body-colored finned aluminum valve covers, serpentine belt-drive system, chrome headers, chrome air-cleaner assembly, and a large radiator w/ a 15 thermostat-controlled fan. The motor is linked to a 700R4 automatic transmission w/ overdrive, which feeds power to a Chevy 10-bolt rear end w/ 3.55 gear-ratio. She fires up instantly, settling into a nice smooth idle, and she runs, drives & performs beautifully. This '49 Chevy is a BLAST to drive, and has lots of power & torque when you apply your right foot firmly to the floor! The power steering and power front disc brakes make driving around town effortless, and when it's time to hit the highway, she tracks straight & true. This car has a very unique appearance that sets it apart from the others, sure to win some trophies. Again, if you have been searching for a beautiful Street Rod that has a one-of-a-kind look, as well as a car that can be driven and enjoyed to the fullest, you will want to take a very close look at this beautiful 1949 Chevrolet Fleetline Custom! ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
