Proceeds from this sale will be used to purchase food, clothing and items of warmth and comfort for those who have served our country and are facing difficult times. Effective 4/13/17 the price is now $22,500...fair warning....do not bother trying to build a 49 Sedan Deliveryequipped in this way for this price....what is your time worth?do you want to spend many months, even years building?where are yougoing to find one to build forunder $6K?....thoughts to consider
This has been an on-going4 year project....we would not be able to offer this beautiful car at this price without the generosity and support of those professionalswho share our passion for helping veterans and othersin need. Every component that came stock originallyfrom the factory has been removed and replaced with later model performance, comfort and reliabilityenhancements....the list below identifies the changes
Chevy Blazer V6 motor. 8k miles..., quick, strong, smooth, quiet, gas efficient
700 R4 automatic transmission...brand new rebuild
Mustang 2 front ....power disc brakes, power rack and pinion steering-all new
Pontiac Firebird rear endCustom aluminum radiator, thermostatically controlled electric fans-all new
Custom 2 tone paint....very presentable....working amber fog lampsInterior includes Silverado cloth seats, new carpet, door panels

New AM/FM/CD sound system
New 17" custom wheels, New radial performance tiresOriginal 49 Chevy body style accessoriesinclude rear skirts, front+ rear bumper guards+ front and rear bumper end wingsNew exhaust system
Much much more....honest descriptions should always include what needs repair: the horn for some reason does not currently work; the rear cargo door closes nicely but does not lock with a key; passenger door vent window is permanently closed; there are a few tinyplaces where watercreepsin onto the floor mats after we wash the car
This Sedan Delivery, also known in it's day as a Pie Wagon, runs and drives beautifully on the streets and freeways.....unlike the original suspension challenges, it handles curves and turns very nicely...there are very few survivors of this style and era...one of the veryfirst commercial vehicles built on a car chassis....this vehicle was shown in Texas in car shows in the late sixties...then placed in a warehouse for decades before family members of theoriginal owneroffered it to us insupport of our cause...what makes this delivery all the more special is that the frontdoors have bothbeen changed out and the body modifiedtoaccommodate original 2 door sedan doors, which are nearly 7 inches longer than the original delivery doors.....a tremendous amount of custom work had to be done to accomplish this...the results are truly striking...the look of the body and roofis now lower, longer and far more streamlined....when you google 1949 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery original images, you can easily see andappreciate the difference. The original ugly gas tank filler neck on the driver rear fenderhas been removed and replaced by a late model accessdoor that was added to the passenger side rear fender..
This car presents beautifully.. but like nearly every other vehicle, there are a few flaws in the paint and though the body is quite nice and straight,it isnot being represented as anything close to perfect...this project was built to be driven..it was never intended to be a garage queen show car....it draws crowds quickly and is one of very few of this first year of production that has been restored with all late model components. Most remaining 49's we have seenhave kept their straight 6, 216motors, 3 speed manual transmissions with column shift, stock steering, suspension, brakes, etc...as a result, there is absolutely no comparison with this ride for comfort, ease of driving and performance.
Wetry topresent a full andhonest account of the projects we build...we encourage potential buyers to fully inspect the car in person to appreciate what we are offering...we are not interested in having a buyer disappointed in any way with their new purchase. This 49 Chevy is being sold as is, where is with no warranty of any type implied or expressed.....we will attempt to answer every question asked in a swift and timely manner
If you have a business, imagine having that business name and logo printed on the sides of this beauty and using/enjoying your ride-all the while promoting yourbusinesswhile turning heads and bringing instant attentionto your operation.
I have clear title, in my name...it is currently registered and insured in California
The new owner will be driving a rare classic Chevy that will stand alone at almost any event....there are very few remaining andit is trulya pleasure to drive and enjoy
We have received several cash plus partial trade vehicle offers so far...we have decided to consider a serious offer of $20K cash plus a pre-1975 Chevy short bed truck with workingA/C or a pre-73 El Camino with workingA/C.....either vehicle must have clear title, be in reliable running condition and have a nice appearance.
Update: over 600 people have viewed this beauty in just 2 days, but so far, not a single question or outright purchase offer....this is our first attempt at selling...wehave alsoposted this car locally for sale and reserve the right to remove it from here at any time ...thank you for your consideration
