1948 Ford Coupe
In 1941, Ford introduced a heavily updated version of its
bestselling sedan, but the onset of WW2 meant that production was
halted in the interest of wartime production. The design was
resumed after the war and a 1946 model was introduced with updated
styling and was very similar to the earlier cars. 1948 was the last
year for the body style, and the car was a great seller and the
cars have become more popular in recent years.
Classic Auto Mall is pleased to present this very nice 1948 Ford
Coupe for your consideration. This car is in wonderful condition
inside and out, with excellent red paint and shiny chrome trim. The
exterior features nice detailing and rides on wide BF Goodrich T/A
Radial tires. The interior is a custom cloth and is very clean,
with interesting original instrumentation and trim.
Retaining all the original body panels, we see a beautiful long
hood flanked by large fenders that house chrome bezeled headlights,
a big horizontal ribbed FORD grille, and a curved bumper. All this
is in excellent condition. Moving rearward, we note straight door
panel with a slight flair at the bottom, and a stainless trim piece
along the bottom. Going from the hood to the rear across the doors
is another straight pointed belt line trim in excellent shiny
condition. Another trim piece wraps around the middle of the
fenders, and halts at each door adding to the shapely curve of the
fenders. A split windshield with awesome chrome trim 2 search
lights and chromed mirrors flank both sides and attach to the
doors. Bringing up the bulbous rear, is an oval rear window, a
large curved trunk and two protruding long oval taillights. Dual
exhaust peek out from the curved rear bumper. All exterior paint is
very glossy and dent free.
The dash in beautiful black with loads of art deco styled chrome
and houses two round instruments, a clock and a speedometer. These
are flanked by a glovebox on the passenger side, and 4 rectangular
gauges on the left of the speedo. In the center we see an
aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette radio with vertical ribbed chrome
speaker enclosure above. Fronting the dash is an original steering
wheel complete with Ford logo in gold field in the center. Nicely
sculpted tweed gray seats with seatbelts in bucket form are in the
front, and a stitched bench in the rear. Headliner is tight, and
nice gray carpet floods the floors. A Lokar shifter sits proudly in
the center in front of a custom-made center console.
Within a patina engine bay sits a 302ci V8 and it is attached to a
3-speed automatic transmission. The engine sports Cobra valve
covers, and a chromed air cleaner top.
Overall the passage of time shows but all surface rust free, and
structurally sound. A dull shine prevails, and all appears to be
mechanically sound underneath, with drum brakes on all 4
Take a 48 Ford, work the panels until they are perfect, then polish
all the chrome and stainless that will adorn the car, pop in a
302ci mill and an automatic transmission, and painstakingly restore
the interior to a new modern version with buckets and seat belts,
and my friends you have a super cool, art deco styled fender, but
no running boarded, classic "rod" if you will, that will enable you
to travel in style and comfort, while enjoying the vintage aspect
of this fine example, fully restored and rebuilt. A quick starter
and smooth runner, this car could go to any show throughout the US,
drive there by itself with no trailer, and still turn heads.
