This 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe four door sedan is a unique machine. The exterior has some fun upgrades for a cruiser style, and beneath the skin is a true post-war classic car experience. It makes for a total package that's a distinct way to enjoy affordable classic car fun.
The 1948 cars are always ripe for telling a great story. It was part of that immediate post-WWII generation where it still carried most of the pre-war style. And so we'd soon lose the distinct roundness in the fenders and rear. After all, they would be out of fashion in the 1950s, but today, we really do miss that kind of style. It's this kind of design that also makes it great for a touch of custom car flair. The paintwork is a stylish cream sandwiched in-between a metallic silver. And the custom blue and purple pinstriping includes plenty of starbursts to evoke extra nostalgia. So it certainly earns the Sentimental Journey nickname on the trunk. And because this is a true cruiser, the finish is the ideal mix of nothing that will make you nervous to drive, but good looking panels that you'll be proud to show off. Plus, it has all the right accessories, like the dual spotlights, cat-eye headlights, bright wheel covers, and faux lake pipes.
The interior does a fantastic job of giving this spacious sedan a comfortable and complete feeling that really feels quite vintage and stock. There's a classic striped cloth upholstery, matching door panels, and a wood-like finish to the dash that may very well be original. So if you have family and friends who love a true classic, they will absolutely want to go for a ride. In fact, you know they'll want to hop in back just to show off the factory suicide doors. But you don't need any of them to have fun, because this is a classic for drivers. You get the large three-spoke steering wheel with an unmistakable worn-in feel of the generations that have come before you. The dash has a complete look with its Art Deco kind of style. And the heater is even working for those early Sunday drives.
Under the hood looks refreshingly original with only the right upgrades. For example, you have some of the same cool custom pinstriping that's on the exterior, but it's still on top of the correct vintage parts. And this has the correct-style Dodge/Plymouth inline-six block, but now it has been upgraded to 12-volt power for better reliability and serviceability. This motor has an eagerness to run that you can instantly feel every time it fires up with gusto. And the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission has that ideal feeling of proper control but with a true vintage feeling.
This is the classic sedan for those who love to have something that's unique, distinct, and absolutely classic. And at a price like this, we all are pretty tempted. Call today!!!
