True vintage style meets the right real cruiser upgrades to deliver
a 1948 Plymouth Deluxe Sedan that's a stylish suicide door
There is an unyielding nostalgia for a sedan like this because the
style has everlasting appeal. After all, glossy black paint will
remind you of a grand piano. These Plymouths had some terrific
brightwork that really pops against all this black. We love the
details, like how the grille accentuates the pointed front end, the
headlights are incorporated in the wraparound fender trim, and the
full-length trim hides the door handles. And of course, no 1940s
cruiser is complete without whitewall tires. The overall
presentation is clean, complete, and straight. But it's never
anything too overdone. In fact, this is the kind of car that just
looks like it spent every Sunday of the last 70+ years taking
family picnic trips.
Suicide doors are always attractive, and so we bet you'll swing all
four doors wide nice and wide every time you park this one at a
cruise-in or cars & coffee. Just to make sure everyone really
notices this feature, the red interior radiates against the
exterior black. There are nice details, like how the tuck and roll
style patter of the seats is repeated on the door panels. Good
carpeting and a taut headliner complete this vibrant style. Sedans
of this era were terrific for giving you plenty of room for family
and friends, and there's even an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner
w/cassette for upgraded driving music. Everything from the art deco
gauges to the big three-spoke steering wheel has that vintage
feeling that really helps your mind turn back the clock.
Under the hood looks refreshingly original with only the right
upgrades. For example, you get an era-correct 230 cubic-inch
inline-six block. But now it has been upgraded to 12-volt power for
better reliability and serviceability. In fact, there's also an MSD
coil and an aluminum radiator to keep this a good cruiser in modern
times. It's a smooth runner that's ready to hit the road. The
column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you an
authentic feel while also offering proper motor control, and behind
the classic whitewalls are a modern tire tread.
Complete with build receipts and maintenance records, this is one
of those immediate post-war classics with irresistible charm. So
you know you need to take it home with you. Call now!
