800 Derita Road, Ste. A
The 1948 Ford coupes are always popular, and this custom example has all the right features you want. With a thoughtfully slick style, proper V8 power, an upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and a nicely finished A/C interior, this is the street machine you always knew could be out there.
The big trunks of these cars were a favorite of liquor-running moonshiners, but in this case, the once inconspicuous styling is now long gone. It's been replaced with a bold Lavender Pearl Mist. It's a terrific color with plenty of metallic flair, and since this car has also been under long-term care, it continues to radiate quality. Even the bumpers, bezels, and grille were done to match. And a street machine attitude means thoughtful details. It includes a sleek style where they deleted the trim, added flush-mounted door handles, a tighter two-piece windshield, and even utilized color-matched sport mirrors. It makes for a more modern look on this very classic Ford. In fact, the largest pieces of bright you'll find are the polished 15-inch wheel that also loves to show off a sporty stance.
The custom presentation continues when you open the door. The shades of mauve used for the tweed and carpeting show more of this car's thoughtful layout as they harmonize with the exterior. This is a lower mileage build, and so you would be hard-pressed to find any signs of wear. Instead, it's just plenty of modern luxury. The seats are borrowed from a later model Ford, and the front buckets power adjust to the ideal comfort position. You also have power windows, power locks, LED dome lights, an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/CD changer, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The Lecarra sports steering wheel has a special color-coordinated wrap, and it's mounted on a tilt column to give you a good view of the full upgraded gauge package.
As a true street machine, you have upgraded V8 power under the hood. This 350 cubic-inch motor has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake. While this motor makes a nice tune out of the dual exhaust, you can also tell its true mission is to be a great cruiser. That's why the motor runs well, and you even have a four-speed automatic transmission with comfortable overdrive. The suspension features an upgraded Mustang II-style front end, and there's a sway bar on the rear. Plus, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make it easy to enjoy out on the road.
The sale comes complete with plenty of paperwork, including title documentation, the owner's manual, service manuals, and build receipts. There's even a history telling the story of the multi-year build and over a quarter-century under the same owner. So don't let something this distinct and loaded slip away. Call now!
