I loves me those Chevrolets from this era! I believe it is a 1949. The '48 was a different body and the '50 grille was distinctly different in the lower section. My Dad had a '52 black two door sedan back in the day and it was a great car. We had a great summer vacation in it, driving from Chicago to Montana and other points West. I was too young to know to tell my dad to save the car for me.
