There are so many reasons why this 1948 Ford Deluxe s an award-winning build. The sleek street machine style, full air ride suspension, custom/comfy A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and the huge power of the Merlin big block are all about making a classic that remains memorable long after you drive away.
The 1948 Ford Deluxe coupe has a style that we always find popular. However, this one takes those iconic looks and made big investments to make sure it's a one-of-a-kind coupe. It starts with a chopped roofline that makes this look like a salt flat racer. Plus, they expertly eliminated the trim for an ultra-sleek look, and the air ride suspension lets you dial-in a stance that's low enough to cheat the wind. There are sporty details everywhere you look with the louvered hood, frenched headlights, wide exhaust tips, and a vibrant red finish that's even on the grille. There's plenty of custom style, too, with the mirror-like chrome bumpers and the full gold custom pinstriping. And while you're admiring those Billet Specialties shining alloys, don't forget to recognize just how meaty the rear ones are to really tell you that's where the power meets the pavement.
The remote door openers are on the key fob, and so you know you can attract plenty of attention just by popping them as you approach. And because all eyes will be on you when the doors open, they made sure to make the interior show-worthy, too. Where the outside is all about speed, the interior really adds a healthy dose of comfort. The high-back bucket seats have a supple finish, and the tasteful tan is continued on the rear seats, door panels, carpeting, headliner, and even the trunk. There are more nice comfort upgrades, like the power windows and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Of course, you also get that unmistakable tingle of performance when you grab the B&M shifter and gaze at the large Stewart Warner speedo and tach integrated into the classic dash.
There's plenty of bold red in the engine bay, but it's not what has your attention. That's because the name on the bright valve cover means everything to performance car fans. This one has a 454 cubic-inch V8 by the masters at Merlin. This massive big block inhales deeply with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor, and it makes an awesome growl from the dual exhaust. And don't just listen to the thunderous soundtrack; follow the path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see a custom color-matched frame as well as upgrades like the Mustang II-style front end and reinforced ladder bars in the rear. A stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission a strong Moser 9-inch rear to make sure that you get proper power delivery. And Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes give you firm control.
This is one powerful, sleek, and all-around awesome custom. So if you love an icon that's truly unique, it's time to take this coupe home. Call today!!!
