All 47 Chevys used the same grille. The difference was the trim package. The car pictured does not have Fleetline trim, but the fenders may have been changed.

In that pic all chrome trim an badges,well anything that bolts to the car is off it an in the trunk.It just got a fresh coat of dupont flat dark green on it,which so gratiuosly is chippin off the corner of the hood where the door is rubbin on it,since p.o has no idea how to mount panels.

edit:Also,did these car use a spring system in the front end or a leaf system like the rear?

They had IFS with coil springs. The fenders have none of the holes for Fleetline trim in them. All 40 to 48 chevys were built on the same chassis, unlike the earlier ones that had two chassis, one for standard models, and another for deluxe.

If you are happy that all that matters, But if you really want to know. They don't make them any more, you are not likely to see to many others on the road and you will be surprised how many people will stop and talk to you about it. The latter could be goo or bad? Yes you did good, I am partial pre 60's iron though.
