I have owned this car for about 5 years after receiving it
from a family member. It has always been garaged and
very well kept. The original color was a Mayland Black, but
the color it has been re-painted to was very well done,
including the dashboard of the interior.
In 1948, Chevrolet offered 3 series of cars, of which the
Fleetmaster was one. This one is called a Fleetmaster Club
Coupe. This car was manufactured in Janesville,
Wisconsin. Chevrolet manufactured 20,471 units during
1948 and this Fleetmaster is number 1,819 off the
The interior, which is a tan fabric is in excellent condition.
The rear quarter windows slide backward to increase air
flow. The windshield wipers are vacuum controlled and
work well. There is also a fully functional cowl ventilator
lever which pops up the cowl for additional air flow. It has
sun visors inside and an exterior body sun visor that
provides an excellent look and is very functional as well.
The trunk is airy and in great condition.
The engine is also in great condition and starts with a
floor mounted starter switch. It has a cast iron block, and
a one barrel carburetor. It is equipped with a three-speed
manual transmission, with vacuum assisted shifting.
I also have a full color brochure, owners manual and
numerous parts that go with the car.
