1946 Chevrolet Coupe

1946 Chevrolet Coupe

Attention Chevy Bow Ties of the '40s lovers: Check out this incredible totally customized '46 Chevy that began life as your everday Stylemaster Coupe. This car features a complete frame-off, nut and bolt restoration with the top chopped and made into a Hard Top. Imagine the many months and countless hours invested in body smoothing and molding, frame, interior and paint prep.


Every part of the body has been smoothed, shaved and finished to perfection in a striking Corvette Millennium Yellow finish topped by Purple Gothic flames and clear coated.

The custom interior features supple Gray Leather accented with Gray cloth inserts on the power seat surfaces and sculpted Gray cloth on the door panels. Dakota LED digital gauges adorn the Bitchin Products dash, Ididit chrome tilt steering column, billet steering wheel. A custom crafted leather covered center console houses the JVC AM FM/CD player, Air Ride suspension controls and pressure gauge. Vintage Air A/C, heat and defrost system (not connected). Other niceties include Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Keyless Entry, and Keyless Trunk Release.

Engine and Driveline
A GM Performance Parts ZZ4 Crate Motor fills the beautifully detailed and finished engine compartment. Hidden lines and wiring, lots of chrome and polished parts along with the continuation of the exterior finish really makes it obvious why this street rod is such a show stopper! For those not familiar with the ZZ4 package, with over 400 Ft-Lbs of torque, the ZZ4 is the best way to put an aluminum head, roller cam, high performance small block between your favorite fenders. According to the owner, this particular setup makes 430 horsepower and has that great sounding muscle car idle, with just enough lope to let people know this is no station wagon engine. Transmission is a TH-350 with a shift kit and a Ford 9 in. rear end brings up the rear. The suspension, steering and braking are handled by a Chevy Nova front clip with Air Ride suspension, an Art Morrison 4-Link with coilovers in the rear, and power front and rear disc brakes.

I challenge you to re-create the build of this awesome '46 Chevy Coupe for anywhere close to the asking price!
