For Sale: 1948 Ford Super Deluxe in Arlington, Texas

Vehicle Description

1948 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe

Despite the approaching of WWII Ford introduced a redesign of their vehicles in 1941. The design continued only 4 months into 1942 until all civilian automobile production was halted. When production resumed in 1946 the body shape was similar but they now had a new large horizontal grill to refresh the look. The hood was also slightly widened and a center trim piece added. From Back To The Future to Karate Kid and Grease these cars have been used throughout many famous media projects. Henry Ford was able to view a clay mold of what the 1949 Ford would look like but passed in 1947 so the Super Deluxe was the last car he had a direct hand in. The Deluxe production stopped after 1948 which is the year of this very clean coupe. It is a nicely built car that was put together to be shown but also driven and enjoyed. It is a rust free car with no history of rust or damage throughout its life. It currently resides with its 3rd owner who purchased the car from the 2nd owner who is also in Texas. It has always been garage kept and never driven in bad weather. It has 1,291 miles on it since completion so is still in great condition. The body is very straight and the exterior of the car is a very classy gloss Black paint. This pairs perfectly with these cars original chrome and stainless trim pieces which all have a very nice shine. The glass is all in great shape and it still has its original 2 piece windshield and side vent windows. The wheels on the car are real Halibrands with knock off style center caps and complement the exterior nicely. They are wrapped in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires that have plenty of tread left.

Under the hood is a stock small block Chevy 350 V8 that runs great. It is topped off with a 4 barrel carburetor and custom air cleaner. It has dual exhaust which sounds great and exits underneath the rear bumpers. The motor is paired with a TH350 Automatic transmission and Ford 9 inch rear end. The suspension is the stock style leaf springs and shocks but the original front axle has been modified with a power disc kit. It also has power steering and even cruise control which clearly indicates this thing was set up for the road.

The interior is very nicely done in a stock style with subtle modifications. The original style Gray upholstery is in good shape and it has a split bench seat up front with lap belts. The carpet, headliner and door panels are all in good shape as well. The dash is nicely painted Black and is where you will start to see some of those modifications incorporated in. It has the original gauge layout but now has VDO gauges, an underdash gauge pod, and a Moon Equipment tachometer. The stock trim pieces all look great and in the center of the dash a JVC AM/FM/CD player has been added. The air conditioning system blows cold and utilizes underdash vents. A painted tilt steering column sits in front of the driver and features a banjo steering wheel and LED indicators. The trunk of the car has a ton of storage space and currently houses the spare and a ton of additional parts.

This cool cruiser is very nicely set up. You are going to enjoy showing it off at shows as well as getting to drive it on the way there.

It could be yours for $31,500.00!
