With its extra sleek look, completely custom interior, and shining small block power, you can see that someone put plenty of time, money, and effort into this 1948 Chevrolet Coupe streetrod. So now that the hard work is done, you have an opportunity to just turn the key and have all the fun.
The exterior seems to be all about sleekness. It starts with an excellent application of the glossy red. The quality shine is essential to the look of this car because the added luster really highlights the 70+ year-old curves. They even color-matched details, like the grille and headlight bezels for a cleaner look. Smooth half-moon wheel covers, shaved door handles, deleted trim, integrated gas filler flap, and a frenched license plate are all part of this attitude, too. Glossy black rubber seals the body gaps tight and almost looks like pinstriping. It's all part of a thoughtful build.
It's always cool to let people see you use the key fob to pop open the doors, and you'll also happily let them get a peek at the high-quality interior. There's even more vivid red inside, and now it's joined by a bright white. There was a big investment in quality fundamentals, like the plush carpeting, taut headliner, finished trunk, detailed door panels, and a smooth dash. The seats are especially well-done with supple materials, a nice pattern stitched into the white inserts and even color-matched red seatbelts. The radio has been upgraded to an AM/FM/Cd stereo with aux input so you can have the best driving music. Plus, there are provisions for some nice features. You have power windows (the passenger side will need to be serviced) and an R134a air conditioning system (it likely just needs a recharge to blow cold again.) A cruiser like this is always built with the driver in mind. That's why you have a Grant sports steering wheel on a tilt column, the tall Lokar shifter will make you feel like the Rat Fink, and the dash has been upgraded with a full gauge package.
The engine bay is ready for showtime, too. The smooth color-matched firewall, tidy steel braided lines, and a big investment in polished components really make this look special. And when you look beyond the shine, you'll see the substance of a 307 cubic-inch V8 upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock mid-rise intake, and shorty headers that feed a rather straight set of 2.5-inch dual exhaust pipes. The solid motor package is complemented by a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs to make sure this smooth-looking Chevy is also smooth on the streets.
This is the kind of build that took extra time to make just to be sure people take extra time looking it all over. So if you want a car that's easy to take anywhere and turns heads everywhere, call today!
