1948 Chevrolet Other Pickups 5 Window ThiftmasterThis 1948 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster pickup has all the right looks for a cool vintage truck. The Advanced Design style has matured into old-school tough Americana attitude that we all love. So when this vintage spirit meets the right investment on this truck, you know you're looking at a great time capsule.
This Chevy is already exactly how you want it. There's less than 3k miles on the build since restoration. So it looks fresh, but the feeling is pure classic. For example, the blue paint is done in a lacquer finish. The terrific gloss and shine ensures the truck gives you the best nostalgia. The same can be said for the iconic five-bar grille. All the pieces you love on these early Advanced Design pickups are present, like the two-piece windshield and the hood ornament. A true classic truck means a clean look but nothing too fancy. So you have color-matched wheel with simple hub caps, durable black running boards, and a bed with real lumber where you can feel the grain of the wood.
The interior continues this ready-to-work time capsule feel. The side panels, door handles, headliner, and durable rubber flooring have a period correct feel. The working heater is a great reminder of how nice this open was when working in the fields, and today it will still keep you warm on those early mornings at the car shows. You'll sit on the taut bench seat, grab the three-spoke steering wheel, while gazing at the clean gauges in the dash. And you really get a good look at it all, because the desirable five-window cab knows how to let in the best light.
This truck continues its theme of honest showmanship with the right investments under the hood. Chevrolet's 216 inline-six has a clean look with smooth block paint, tidy wires, and that unmistakable oil bath air cleaner on top. It's such a great vintage attitude, that you'll love to know the code on this comes back to an era-correct block. The solid investment in this pickup means it fires up with the kind of reliability you want in an old friend. You'll love the sound it makes during the smooth idle, and it gets even better as the pace picks up while shifting through the three-speed manual transmission.
This is the restored five-window Chevy for nostalgia lovers. It's truly distinct, versatile, and solid. That's why you know this is a deal you need to grab right now.
