1948 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible – Reserved
We are genuinely delighted to offer this superb 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible, she has a rebuilt 1952 Oldsmobile 303 cubic inch V8 fitted with a single pot Holly. She has the Ford 3 speed ‘on the tree’ manual gearbox.
This wonderful old Ford is well known to us and we know the previous owner very well too – he has owned the car since 2011 and spent a lot of time and money getting her in this great shape.
Many thousands of pounds were spent replacing the interior and the convertible hood in recent years. The car is in very good shape with no signs of rust. A very solid example which needs to be seen to be appreciated.
A previous owner had the car wrapped in white vinyl with lightning bolts to make it look like Grease Lightning, the lightning bolts were removed but she was left in white because she looks so good (albeit the burgundy paint underneath remains fully intact).
The Oldsmobile V8 motor runs perfectly and looks great with finned rocker covers and fully painted up. The crankshaft was reground and new pistons were fitted (all receipts available).
The speedo is currently 33920 (however this is not the original engine and sadly little paperwork comes with the car).
Having checked over the car we can advise that a speedo cable is required and that due to an upgrade to the electrical system, the clock requires converting to work correctly.
There is a modern cd/radio and powerful speakers…ideal for those ‘summer nights’.
She starts on the button, first time every time and is ready to cruise and be adored everywhere she goes. She drives like a dream and will delight the new owner.
