1949 Chevrolet Panel Delivery description
A 1949 Chevrolet Panel Delivery is one of the coolest ways for everything from promoting your business to a weekend surf wagon. And so when you can find one that has the right look, plenty of original touches, and a great price, then you know it's a great deal.
You already know Chevy's Advanced Design pickups are red hot right now because of their iconic style. The bright Art Deco grills, alligator hood, and two-piece hubcaps on new 16" whitewall Coker tires instantly make this a star. So it gets even better when you can get this lineage in something that rare, more interesting, and more versatile. Panel vans are so substantial that they are literally hard to miss, and that gets amplified even further on a machine that was painted in the original Swift Red. But even with a bold color, this one doesn't lose its vintage flair. After all, it has the correct details, right down to the badging and two-piece windshield. So it's hard not to envision putting the name of your company (or a fictitious one) in cursive writing down the side. Then again, if you do decide to go in a wilder direction, there's already a set of updated wheels and tires that also come with the sale.
Open the door to all those great classic Chevy truck features you love. The large three-spoke steering wheel, Art Deco dash, original gauges on display, and an overall durable feeling that has lasted for decades. But this one also has something special. Behind those black bucket seats is plenty of protected storage for you to carry all the equipment you need for business, pleasure, or both! Just like the pickups of the era, this has a real wood bed, so people will love to see you open those large rear doors no matter if you are camping or tailgating.
Under the hood is a 235 cubic-inch inline six. It's an upgraded in displacement for what was available in '49. More importantly, it has earned a reputation for being tough and reliable as an anvil. While this is not an all-out speed machine, it has the right power and torque to really keep this panel van moving. Plus, you get full control over it with the classic three-on-the-three column shifted manual transmission. As you look over the engine bay and undercarriage photos, you'll see good maintenance (everything from fresh hoses newer exhaust, gas tank, brakes, etc.) while still retaining this Chevy's original charm.
Nearly 70 years later, and this Panel Deliver is still delivering... only instead of industrial goods, this one is bringing eye-catching attention and a value price. Don't miss out, call today!
