Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1949 Chevrolet two-door Sedan has that cool classic shape we rarely see. But as you dig deeper, you discover a kind of cool hot rod inspired style that is irresistible, especially at this price.
This Chevy has all the right curves. The fenders, the hood, and the wraparound bumper give it that classic front end that could have only come from Post-War America. And as you go along the side, the torpedo-like rear fenders even have a fender skirt to make sure you see the whole swoopy profile. Everything from the two-piece wheel covers to the two-piece windshield gives this one a nice stock look. And the red paint even has a very vintage style. The whole package just gives the first impression of something that comes close to the survivor and barn find cultures that are popular today. But those dual exhaust tips in the rear signal there's actually even more to this car's story.
Inside is more of this period-correct idea. They have made investments in places like reupholstering the seats to make sure you get the comfy cloth cruiser experience. The door panels and carpeting are also done in a matching gray. You get a great vintage feeling just by slipping behind the large and grippy factory wheel and looking out at the full art deco-style dash. It would just be a cool cruiser attitude, if it weren't for performance-style additions like the auxiliary gauges and the Hurst floor shifter.
When you lift the hood, this one really begins to tell its full story. The 216 cubic-inch inline six is believed to be original to the car. But the added polished components tell you to look a little deeper. It has been upgraded with a Fenton intake, dual Rochester carbs, and headers to give this inline motor a true dual exhaust. So what you get is the kind of cool enhanced motor that would have come from a 1950s high school shop class. Sort of like when someone got the old family Chevy and created the best performance they could. That's also why you also have full control of the motor with the four-speed manual transmission. So this one just gives off an awesome vibe of the early days of street machines.
This is the classic Chevy that's built for extra fun and has a story to tell. That makes for a very cool two-door you need to get your hands on now. Call today!!!
