CC Outtake: 1947 Chevrolet Stylemaster – Been Waiting Long?

Chevrolet 1947

I was driving through East Moline recently and, as happens often with me, noticed something interesting on a side street. What materialized as I approached was an early postwar Chevrolet. A Fleetline, to be specific.

It looked like it had been sitting in this driveway for quite some time, judging from the brick holding it in place and the out-of-date antique auto license plate. Could it be a recent purchase, or a long-term project? The plate verified it was a 1947 model, but the ’46s and ’48s were much the same. Hopefully it will be on the road with warmer weather rapidly approaching!
