In 1942, Ford Motor Company along with many other domestic
automakers ceased civilian vehicle production in lieu of war
production for WWII. When the war was over, the American public was
hungry for new cars and Ford was eager to deliver. The most
efficient route to a new 1946 Ford was to simply give the 1942 Ford
a facelift, so that is exactly what was done. The 1948 Ford was the
last of this generation, and under the exterior was nearly
identical to the last pre-war Fords.
This particular 1948 Ford two door received street-rodification
some time ago, and remains a timeless piece both in classic and
street rod segments-at least from the outside. Step inside and it
immediately becomes clear this was the pride and joy of someone
along its life. You'll notice it received the seats and a console
from a 1988-89 Pontiac Grand Prix and though it may sound like an
odd combination, the Pontiac interior has been almost seamlessly
integrated to the inside of the Ford and feels as if it was
designed to be transplanted into this car! Additionally, it is
worth noting that this interior is 1988-89 only and is a rare find
both in this condition and color. The gauge cluster is a custom job
made up of VDO gauges and there is a modern single DIN radio
mounted in the dash. The GM steering column has an aftermarket
steering wheel mounted to it, true to the era in which this car was
The exterior is an older paint job, presumably done when the car
was turned into a rod. It looks great from a few feet away, but is
beginning to show its age up close in addition to signs of use such
as scratches and touchups. The wheels are vintage slotted mags
which really give this rod a classic feel! A quick walk around the
car will reveal custom taillights and bumpers. Lifting up the
enormous hood reveals a small block Chevrolet 350 V8 with headers
and an aluminum intake that has recently received a tuneup.
This stylish custom Ford was built to be a unique cruiser, and the
unique Pontiac interior is sure to start some conversations!
Overall, the condition is good enough to be comfortably enjoyed
as-is, or to be a great starting point to create your dream street
