Last updated Sep 18, 2011
Was a city mayor car that was a gift from her father, she kept it garaged most of the time and i bought it with 24 k on it only !!!
I was on my way to buy a 1978 Trans Am when i found this beauty parked for sale beside the house of that city mayor, i stopped and fell in love with it right a way ... so i bought it did all i had to do to put it back on the road :)
This was following four years with no civilian passenger vehicles being produced. Chevrolet chose to serve up existing models, much like its competitors. The demand for new vehicles was extreme, and the paid-for factory tooling was already in place. The Master DeLuxe became the Stylemaster
In January of 1949 there finally appeared a ‘true' postwar Chevrolet.
