The stance instantly tells you this 1948 Chevrolet Stylemaster is the exact opposite of a barn find. It has been upgraded with a fully adjustable air ride suspension, small block power, an overdrive transmission, Bluetooth stereo, and a luxury leather interior. Oh yeah, you’re looking at a full custom and comfortable cruiser.
We love how this Chevy represents a little bit of everything. The whitewall tires, alligator hood, and fender skirts are pure pre-war elegance. But the cat eye headlights, smooth trunk, and hidden tail lights are pure post-war cruiser cool. And a great way to unite the two worlds of classic and custom is the black paint. It’s a timeless color especially when the gloss shows off all this Chevy’s curves. It looks good without being perfect because a car like this was made to cruise without worry. And quite frankly if there’s anything you want to customize, it’s just going to be a personal choice of the easier things like paint or polished pieces, because the hard work is already done on this one. After all, one of the biggest reasons this model Chevy is in-demand is because you can chop inches out of the roof line and give it that awesome forward-leaning stance you see here. And when you add in an adjustable air ride suspension that can basically lay frame, you have the kind of long and low sleekness that would make James Dean tip his cap to you.
The interior is a thoughtful package that appears quite vintage while doing a great job subtly integrating worthwhile upgrades. For example, you have two rows of classic-style bench seats that have a touch of tuck-and-roll style. But his classic style has a supple feel thanks to nice leather. The attractive red continues on the door panel inserts, dash, and headliner for a uniform style. And not only is it nice to have black on the carpet (to show less dirt) but it’s also coordinated with the custom dash pinstriping for a thoughtful touch. In fact, you’ll find well-integrated and thoughtful features all around that make for a better cruiser. It ranges from the classic center speedo being upgraded to a Classic Instruments full readout, to the full stereo system you command with Bluetooth.
Under the hood is an upgrade to Chevy’s hardy 350 cubic-inch V8. It’s built with the pieces you really want, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand intake, an MSD Distributor, Moroso valve covers, and headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust and glasspack style mufflers. It’s the kind of package where we bet you can unlock some serious power with some weekend tinkering. But right now we like how this is just a stout runner to make for a better cruiser. After all, the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is there to swiftly/smoothly get you into overdrive comfort. There’s also rack & pinion power steering, power brakes, and Wilwood front discs for an easier driver.
This is a custom coupe that was made for you to truly enjoy. So don’t let this streamlined custom classic cruiser slip away. Call today!
