We are very pleased to present this 1949 Chevrolet Panel Van. Known to manufacturers as a “Sedan Delivery”, these vehicles were in most American company line-ups from the beginning. The basic design was that of a two door wagon with the windows covered with sheet metal and the interior generally sparse and used as delivery vehicles as cargo vans are used today. This panel van was used as our company vehicle here in Savannah, GA and now we are offering it for sale. This is a true driver and has been a dependable vehicle for us to take to car shows and drive around town.

This all metal vehicle was restored in 1986 and featured in the September 1988 Truckin Magazine. The magazine pictures are listed in this ad. The paint is a 1982 Chevy Truck Red enamel and it is showing its 34 year age with chips and some paint peeling on the side of the panels. It has some very cool custom features such as the louvered hood, custom front window glass, visor, blue dot headlights and custom running boards. The interior is a classic burgundy velour, which was typical of the 1980's interior styling. It has a rebuilt 1973 Chevy 350 engine with TRW components such as lifters, rods, rings bearing oil pump and camshaft. Power is driven by a Holley carburetor with a dual exhaust system with chrome tips located below the rear bumper. It has 9:1 compression flat top pistons and push rods. The transmission is a 700R4 automatic 4 speed with a converter and cooler. It has long list of convenience and modern features including power front disc brakes, power steering, tilt wheel, power antennae, intermittent wipers, power seats, Dolphin gauges, Vintage air conditioning that blows cold air and an upgraded CD sound system. It even has a trailer hitch. The front clip was taken from a 1967 Chevelle and the rear end is a 10 bolt 3.73:1 posi traction from a 1969 Chevy Camaro. The interior has a 73 Buick 6-way electric seats, but the electric does not function. It has 1973 Buick Steering column. The 16 inch American Racing wheels with the 255/50ZR16 BF Goodrich G-Force tires defines the look of a hot rod. This is a rare vehicle and will definitely be a hit at the car shows.
