Like the other marques of the “Big Three” for 1948. Chevrolet continued to offer warmed-over pre-war styling from 1942 for one last time. It was the independents—Studebaker. Hudson. Packard. and Nash—that got the jump and offered all-new models. GM. Ford. and Chrysler would have to wait until 1949 for their turn. Chevrolet's offering featured new grilles.  .  Base price before options was $1. 34. The dynamic styling of the Fleetmaster gave the impression of movement. even when the car was at a standstill. Surprisingly. the rear seat offered good headroom and opening rear quarter windows only offered on the Fleetmaster not Stylemaster. Chevrolet or Fisher Body never offered a “woodie. rumors exist to say that one was designed to compete with the Ford Sportsman; however. Chevrolet management was unimpressed with the idea. Reputedly. “Country Club” wood panels were produced by Engineered Enterprises of Detroit and applied to the metal body of the Fleetmaster. The ash and mahogany applique was made exclusively for the Fleetmaster and was used only on the sides of the vehicle and not applied to the rear of the vehicle as on competitors from Ford and Chrysler. Whether this was available from Chevrolet dealers or bought from the outside accessory firm continues to be the subject of much conjecture (See 75 Years of Chevrolet aka. the Chevy Bible)  This Country Club Fleetmaster is probably the nicest in existence. . Nicely equipped with an unusual radiator overflow under hood and describes the chrome being in excellent condition. Most recently the wood has been Varnished with Epifanes (high gloss) Finished in Factory Oxford Maroon over a Maroon cloth interior. the vehicle is very tidy both inside and out and is nicely detailed under hood. It is equipped with numerous options. including the accessory windshield Fulton sun visor. Corker Radial whitewall tires. 12 Volt system.  chrome stone guards. front and rear bumperettes  . radio. clock. and a Chevrolet Super Deluxe heater. A 1948 shop manual. nbsp;
. This is a most unusual and seldom-seen example of high-style post-war Chevrolet with the rare Country Club exterior trim.
 No doubt it will be the hit of Chevrolet local events and car shows wherever it will appear.
