|chevelle_502||Ledford and brimstone got the right idea. Pick your suitable base color and throw in some flakes. Or maybe mix it up with a light base color and a colored flake.|

One thing you could look into is updating an original color in some small fashion - say pick something that was available in that year and then add some pearl to give it a bit of shimmer.
So if there was a deep or darkish royal blue (fer example) used in '48, you could throw in some lighter blue pearl for a subtle effect that would really pop in sunlight.

|lt1tyrell||The original color was grey but I am still leaning towards black or a very dark cherry color. I think I would like to stick with something dark.|

Color the original paint
I like the original color whether, black, grey, green. Just pull up the colors of the 1948 Chevrolet. The marketing at GM spent alot of apeal with the body shapes. When I decided on my car based on some fleck under the mounting on the door. So I painted it as it came original, I did not know how it would look, my wife saw it and said, that is the perfect color. I would never change the color.
People remember those cars with their young days. That is my opinion.

Help me decide on a color please!
I have to make a decision in the next little while on my paint color. It is a 48 chev 2 door sedan and it is a resto-rod. Nothing is shaved or modified on the body but it is lowered. Since it is a resto-rod I want to keep it fairly simple, the wheels are going to be color matched smoothies with baby moons and chrome rings along with wide white tires. I like the idea of black but I dont like how it always looks dusty and shows the slightest srcatches and swirls. Can somebody envision this car and give me some suggestions?
