I was going to do a few little things to this before selling it, but a health issue has cropped up and I need to get some trucks advertised for sale as they are in case I have to go to hospital.
This '48 Chevy van is a fresh import and I'm waiting for the C386 to come so I can regsiter it. All duties have been paid.
It has a superbly fitted and sweet running sbc V8 350 and Th 350, all working well. I took it for a short run up the docks and it really does want to burn the tyres off - it goes well and corners well too. Twin exhaust sounds really good. Brakes work exceptionally well but the handbrake needs adjusted. It needs one wiper arm hooked up to the electric motor and a new clip put on to hold it. I can't kneel down to get to it right now. Headlights will need changed over to left dipping, but all lights work. Paint is pants, been done years ago suffered from laquer peel on the roof and somebody took to sorting out some issues and has primered parts of it. Mostly looks like a flat back and repaint. Passenger door window is cracked, I have one coming next week. Door interior panels are off but a brand new pair with frames are here to fit to it. Seats are like new, don't know what they are from. I don't like the lights in the back doors, and if you don't you could always weld up the holes if you're going to paint it.
I haven't even got it out the garage to take pics yet so the pics here are from the American side. I'll take some as soon as I get mobile again.
You can always phone me for a chat, or e-mail me for more details and pics (when I get them).
Jim on 07593 187939, [email protected] Asking price is £12500 or best offer. Would prefer a cash deal but might take a very cheap part ex, but given my health issue just now, it is better for me to reduce what's here rather than taking trades. It's a great van you can improve your own way wiht all the hard work done and proven over a few years.
