Vehicle Description

1948 Chevrolet Other

Very original Chevy Two door needing to be restored or placed on a modern frame (116"). Car would be an ideal candidate for thatconversion. The frame on the passenger side is okay, but the driver's side will need some repairs along with replacing the rear cross-member.All three locations are in the pictures. Selling this car at "NO RESERVE" last highest bid will own it.
The person, I purchased it from had started on the interior and block sanding the body, which isn'ttoo bad. I have some of the stainless trim.He ran into medical problems and sold the car to me. Hehad just started trying to get the engine area. I did a compression test and five of the cylindersread 120# each, but number five waslow. I shot marvel mystery oil down the cylinder and let it set and the reading came up to 90#. The oil mayloosen the rings, as the car hadbeen setting for over 30 years. I have been using the clutch and transmission to work as brakes, so thebrakes will have to be redoneif going back to original. Most of the flat floor panels will require some simple repairs also. The doors and windows work pretty good, one side glassis cracked as shown in pictures. Windshield is okay.Starter spins motor over pretty good. I corrected some of the wiring to make it operable and still some has to be replaced or reconnected, but it'sthere to follow. Radiator was flushed and reinstalled.
I'm sure the engine will run with a little more tinkering. 6/29 Had it firing today, ordered carb kit from NAPA, will install Tuesday.
Newblue dot lens and frames on the rear are not hooked up.New distributer wires, cap, newer battery, new cables, hoses, belt, and all gauges restored.Spare tire is original andsurprisingly holds air.Have all original split front seat and back complete and in pretty good condition, currently has Sebring interior now with matching door / side panels.Any questions okay tocall William at 217 - 549 - 8 1 1 4.Car is to be sold to lower 48 states.Delivery is possible prepaid at $1.00 per loaded mile from zip 62443, I'm 74, so under 200 milesplease, or call for decision.
