1949 Mercury Coupe or 1949 Chevy Fleetline
Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew where i could get some
info/specs/dimensions on either the 49 mercury coupe or the 49 chevy
fleetline. if anyone has any idea where i can get this info, PLEASE let me
know. i really appreciate it! thanks!
I recommend you look at...
I have a 49 Fleetline Deluxe 4dr. I can give you some general approximate
specs on it. Mine has a 216 6, solid lifters, 1 barrel carb, 3 on the tree
(powerglide was not available for another year). The engine is rated at 90
hp at 4400 rpm. It has a closed driveline. The car is 6 volt. It is
supposedly the first Chevy to ever top the scales at 3000 pounds. The 49
216 is the first year that split rod bearings replaced the babbit rod
bearings but the rod bearings still were not full oil pressure until 1953.
49 is the first post WW II design even though the motor was around 15 years
I have a new camshaft and lifter set for sell for this car (1949 Chevy 216 6). If you know anyone interested, let me know.
