Of course, the awesome flame paint instantly attracted you to this 1947 Chevrolet Fleetmaster Streetrod. But what's going to make you really love this is the fresh crate V8, upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, overdrive transmission, and all the other upgrades that tell you this is a build done for far more than just its looks.
The job of a car like this is to standout in all the best ways. The bodywork includes all the right investments in custom work, including shaving the door handles, deleting body trim, and deleting the rear bumper for a smoother look. And of course, they frenched the headlights, license plate, and Cadillac-style taillights. So it has that unmistakable custom appearance from the first moment you lay eyes on it. And speaking of first impressions, it's hard to get cooler than the full custom paint work that starts white-hot at the front consuming everything, including the grille and bumper. These flames blaze down the body with a custom tri-color style that's heighted by green pinstriping. And any place that has fire hasn't touched, there's an awesome blue metallic that loves the sunshine. It's impressive to see from blocks away, and even more impressive on how smooth it is for the few people that get to touch it. There's even full pinstriping on the trunk so that there's something for people to look at from every angle. Plus, the louvered hood, dual exhaust tips, and modern Coys alloys with the aggressive 17/20-inch front/rear stance are all about showing that this is a speedy streetrod.
Inside are some more custom details. The seats have a hint of tuck and roll and the door panels are done to match. And we love the custom pinstriping from the trunk returning on the dash. But what you'll really notice are the upgrades that make this a nice driver. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo with an aux input and you have the beginning provisions for air conditioning (the compressor is installed, but other equipment and work will be needed.) You get a grippy sports steering wheel on a tilt column. And the classic dash panel has now been adapted to give you an upgraded Dolphin gauge setup, including a full auxiliary readout package, a large speedo, and a cool tach glowing red.
Under the hood is a fresh crate V8 installed about 3 years and 1,300 miles ago. We all know these late-model crate motors are great for power, especially with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, GM Performance intake, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. Not only does this has a clean look, but you'll also spot nice supporting components like the serpentine belt system and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. As you look underneath the car, you'll spot nice driving features, like newer shocks and the updated independent front suspension. Plus, the transmission was upgraded at the same time as the motor to a 700R4 four-speed automatic with highway-friendly overdrive. If this is starting to sound like a great all-around driver, then you'll also appreciate the power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors.
A great custom look on the outside and a strong crate motor under the hood - this Chevy is the total package. So hurry up before someone else grabs the custom classic with the features you can use every day. Call today!!!
