Classic Car Overview

1948 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible The most famous car to appear in the Back to the Future movies was, of course, the DeLorean. But it wasnt the only automobile in the cult-classic films. One of the most memorable scenes from the original was when Biff drove his convertible into a truck full of manure covering himself, his cronies, and his car with the stuff. Lets go back in time and see what this 48 Ford has to offer up in its consignment to Classic Auto Mall. Nicely restored, great color combination, and if you are like me, a sucker for the appliqu?? light woodgrain, youll need to take a look at this late 40s piece of automobilia. Exterior A bit simpler than its sister car the Mercury 8, this Super Deluxe has just the right amount of chrome, curved steel and Dark Red paint. A horizontal ribbed grille framed by single headlights and small round turn signals along with 2 bumper mounted fog lights fronts this machine. Nicely curved fenders with simple chromed spears and a just above the belt line spear runs from stem to stern and is in good condition. Straight steel panels minding their gaps and draped in a nice dark red which shows a few faults overall. Body matching steel wheels with FORD logo moon caps are wrapped by Firestone wide white bias tires. A newer black convertible top covers the passengers during a shower. Interior A tan split bench wrapped in vinyl is up front and a full bench is in the rear. These float on dark brown carpeting that is in good condition. Matching tan door panels are also seen. A light wood appliqu?? dash, with a metal insert in the center which houses rectangular gauges on the left, and a center dual round speedometer and clock which flank a center mounted radio. A very nice condition original steering wheel sticks out from the dash and has a circular horn ring in the center. Drivetrain A 239ci V8 is within a nicely restored and clean engine bay. It has a single 2-barrel carburetor, and a 3-speed manual transmission in back. This pushes power back to a 3.54 geared rear. Undercarriage Very clean completely restored and devoid of any rust, surface or otherwise. A nice touch on the metal floorpans they are body matching. We see transverse leaf suspension and drum brakes on all 4 corners. Drive-Ability This car started right up but will definitely need a tune up and a carburetor cleaning as it will idle, but as soon as you give it gas to go it wants to sputter, miss, and not accelerate. Due to this issue we couldnt get it up to speed, however it did handle all the undulations and hazards that befall the Classic Auto Mall Parking lot and managed to give us a smooth ride. Overall a very good to good condition car, with nice chrome, good paint and clean interior. A few faults here and there, but certainly nothing to worry about. Except for running into a manure truck with your top down!
