Description

STK 3122 1948 Chevrolet Thriftmaster 5-Window

By today's standards, this Chevy pick-up should be considered a Silverado from another time. From the 5-window cab, to the distinctive solid oak bed, this '48 Thriftmaster resto-pickup from Texas is an eye-catcher. The frame-off restoration is highlighted by a professional 2-stage Ebony Black respray that is in good condition. All chrome/stainless is new and 17” American Torque Thrust polished alloys mount 50-series Toyo radials. This Thriftmaster has also been lowered slightly and the result is a great look. The interior is very well thought out. Comfortable custom reclining bucket seats are reupholstered in red vinyl and accents include matching door cards and headliner. There are new carpets, new original-style gauges, a custom wheel, tilt column and refinished dash w/pinstripping. All weather-stripping has also been replaced, window glass is new and electrics have been converted to 12 volts. The nicely detailed engine compartment houses a small-block Chevy that is said to have been rebuilt. (We are not sure of the cubic inch displacement - sounds and runs like a 350, but it may be a 305/327??) Upgrades include a mild cam, polished Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock 4-barrel and HEI ignition. The engine is nicely dressed with chrome accents and exhaust passes through stainless tube headers to a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. Cooling requirements are handled by an aluminum radiator, stainless hoses and 6-blade fan. A 700R4 automatic transmission w/column shift is linked to a GM 10-bolt differential w/street gearing. The painted chassis is fitted with a Camaro front sub-frame with new suspension/steering components. Power steering is matched with power disc/drum brakes that utilize a dual master cylinder. This sharp Chevy Thriftmaster will not be in our inventory long. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
