V8 Auto Classic Vintage Collector Chevy Edelbrock A/C Holley MSD Van Panel
This 1947 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery is a custom build that updates everything you want. That means a two-tone exterior with plenty of pinstriping, a custom A/C interior, and plenty of V8 power under the hood.
We love the shape of the 1947 Chevy because its history makes it a pre-WWII design that returned briefly to be part of the post-WWII recovery. And while that makes this commercial vehicle an integral part of our great economic boom time, it’s days of industrial duty are long gone. It now has a terrific custom look that includes frenched headlights, clear headlights, sport mirrors, shaved door handles, expertly eliminated trim, and taillights integrated into the custom flush rear pan design. The two-tone design is great for both a classic and street machine style. In fact, this one skews more toward the hot rod feeling with plenty of artful custom pinstriping and a finish that has been used for some Saturday night fun. In other words, it has an impressive look that also shows it was made to be driven. So the full appeal here about a cool custom that wants to be shown off everywhere.
The full interior is a modern and comfy setup. It starts with velour bucket seats up front that are designed to be all-day easy. You’ll slip behind a Lecarra sport steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Beyond that, the dash is dominated by crisp classic-style VDO gauges. This one is built with plenty of modern amenities, like an AM/FM/CD stereo, center console w/cup holders, and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. The rear section has the wide door for deliveries, but the fully finished carpeting and upholstered sides let you know this is more about being the ultimate tailgater.
The engine bay instantly shows a true upgrade in power. After all, the small block generation was a decade away when this was first built, but you can see the V8 fits nicely with even some room for polished fair. This stout Chevy 350 cubic-inch powerplant has upgraded performance with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Holley intake, and MSD ignition. It fires up readily and makes a sweet tune out of the dual exhaust. Plus, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is both stout and smooth. You also have an upgraded independent front suspension, power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the modern grip of Falken tires.
This is the full custom that has a huge practical side. So if you love to use your classics, this one is ready to go everywhere.
