1949 Chevrolet Pickup
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1949 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup for your consideration. Finished in a beautiful patina brown with brown leather interior. Along with the interior comes a custom floor made up of license plates. Under the hood is a Chevy small block 327ci V8 with a 350 automatic transmission, the perfect amount of power and sound for this truck. This '49 comes with A/C, power brakes, power steering, and a heater. Some of the custom things that were completed with this build are a 4 barrel Holley carb, aftermarket radio, Lokar shifter, Lokar gas pedal, all new brakes, fuel lines, dual master cylinder, 3:36 rear axle, aluminum radiator, '68 Camaro subframe, custom wiring, louvered hood and tailgate cover, rolled pan and bed cover, louvered headliner, lowered suspension, bear claw latches and a 16 gallon fuel cell. Please call or email us today for more information on this vehicle.
Apart from some functional changes to the 1949s, the 1948-1949 Chevrolet truck was similar to the 1947 model, and in fact Chevy's 1948 trucks were nearly identical to the '47s. To make more leg room for center passengers in 3100s and 3600s, the gearshift lever migrated from the floor to the steering column, and the parking brake was activated by a pedal operated by the driver's left foot, as on Buicks. At midyear, inside-door-handle action was reversed: You now pulled up to open the door.
