True vintage style meets the right real cruiser upgrades to deliver a 1948 Plymouth Deluxe Sedan that's a stylish suicide door sedan.

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!
