For Sale: 1948 Plymouth Coupe in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1948 Plymouth Coupe Pro Street is a well-presented custom coupe made for all-around appeal. After all, we all love a classic with a terrific back story, and this one includes a passion project that gives you distinct paint, an upgraded interior, and a big Mopar V8 with a supercharger on top!



We love the '48 Plymouth because it was one of the last pre-way holdovers. So the guys at Plymouth gave it all the best little detail to keep it looking fresh. So the wraparound trim incorporated the headlights, and the rear wheels have some added fender skirt built into the sheet metal. And you still have the best classic details, like the trim that runs the full length and the Plymouth sailboat emblem leading the way forward. But you don't just love this for its vintage style. You're attracted to the full street machine persona. Bright purple paint, deleted bumpers, cat-eye headlights, shaved door handles, and the louvered hood are pure hot rod cool. And the way the side pies peek out from under the doors and the Weld racing wheels hold all that rear rubber give this the stance that tells you this has the power to back up its speedy style. This car was built by Ray Williams, who was known for some cool cars. This one is especially distinct because Ray owned it since new. He turned it into a passion project custom around 2000. This is when the paint, stance, and full pro street style were added. That's important to know because this continues to represent the final evolution of Ray's build. So while you may find details that are imperfect, the idea right now is more about presenting a craftsman's legacy car than work for the sake of flair. Plus with only about 7k miles on this since completion, you can really see the clean and speedy style of this passion project.



The interior has plenty of added comfort and custom style. The purple returns inside, and now it's joined by a tasteful gray so that the full presentation is attractive and not too boisterous. There's room for plenty of people if you want to share the experience, but the driver is the one who will always have the most fun. The Grant GT sports steering wheel, tilt column, B&M shifter, and dash full of Moon Eyes readouts proves the focus is on you.



A cool custom Plymouth like this deserves a strong Mopar motor in the engine bay. This is a monster 468 cubic-inch V8... and if that wasn't already enough, there's also a B&M supercharger on top! This mighty Mopar powerhouse looks great with the mirrored inner walls showing off its muscle. But don't forget to also spot practical components, like the dual fans on the radiator and the battery box moved to the trunk for better weight distribution. This one fires up with a terrific rumble as a set of custom headers feed into the side pipes. The TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is a stout unit made to handle big power, and that feeds into an upgraded rear diff. And as you check out the undercarriage photos, you'll see the right powder-ready components, like the strengthened frame, rear traction bars, and extra meaty Mickey Thompson tires that fit in the tubbed rear. As dragstrip ready this whole car looks, a pro street car also likes to just go cruising on a Saturday night. So you have easy driving features like power steering and front disc brakes.



Complete with tilt documentation, this is a cool Plymouth with an exceptional story to tell. So it's time for you to be a part of this legend. Call today!!!
