For Sale: 1948 Plymouth Deluxe in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1948 Plymouth is a cool two-door classic that's fully built with slick paint, a loaded A/C interior, overdrive transmission, a powerful V8, and an adjustable air ride suspension...all wrapped in Mopar-level rarity! This is the kind of complete custom build that leaves you wanting for nothing.

This car has a terrific classic style. These were similar to the pre-war Plymouths, so the impression is pure Americana. Of course, the Desert Silver Metallic paint borrowed from the Mercedes palette instantly lets everyone know this one is more than just vintage. It has a hint of pearlescent luster that brings a whole new dimension to the classic curves every time the sunshine finds the sheetmetal. Matching the radiant look is all the brightwork in the wraparound chrome bumpers, sharply-pointed grille, and the full-length trim that even incorporates the door handles. Items like the sport mirrors and 17-inch Intro wheels certainly are reminders that this is a custom/upgraded machine. But overall, this knows how to have a proper vintage presentation, right down to the classic Plymouth sailboat hood ornament leading the way forward.

The interior is quite fresh and thoughtfully finished for a vintage look. After all, you'd expect a split bench seat up front. But now it's finished in supple leather with better bolstering. The rear seat, carpet piping, door panels, and more all coordinate in beige for a thoughtful style. The dash retains the cool Art Deco look, but now it incorporates upgrades like the air conditioning and air ride controls. You'll also find other handy upgrades like the power windows and Alpine AM/FM stereo. And the polished Budnik steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column to give you a good view of the full classic gauge package.

A cool custom Plymouth like this deserves a strong Mopar powerhouse in the engine bay. This 360 cubic-inch crate V8 has been thoughtfully added with the full block, oil pan, and intake painted beige to go with the classic vibe. Of course, the Mopar finned valve covers and matching air grabber really hint at the well-built performance. In fact, this V8 has been upgraded with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, air gap intake, Walker aluminum radiator w/electric fan, and wrapped headers feeding an H-pipe dual exhaust. The transmission is a four-speed unit with highway-ready overdrive. It makes for a better driving classic, and as you look underneath, you can also spot a better suspension with a Fat Man independent front end and a four-link rear. It's an easy driver with rack & pinion power steering and power brakes with front discs. Plus, that air ride suspension means you can always dial-in the ideal stance wherever you park.

Complete with build receipts and a car cover, this is the sleek, loaded, and powerful custom you've been waiting for. So don't let it end up in someone else's garage. Call today!!!
