Cuatro Ocho

1948 Chevrolet Fleetline

This car proved to be a difficult build as the owner wanted to keep it as OG as possible. That meant keeping the inline six and three speed as well as leaving the floors untouched. Problem is the torque tube rear end had to be replaced to fit his side skirts. We installed a G body rear end and machined a custom tailshaft with a retaining plate on the back of the three speed. The air ride system was again a challenge as the owner wanted four switches as if it were a hydraulics setup. We machined a custom manifold and plumbed everything old school with individual dumps, then wrapped it up with stainless hard lines.
  • Full custom air suspension system with hardlines
  • Custom trans tailstock and driveshaft
  • G-body rear end with in house fabricated flip kit and bag mounts
