From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Wearing a rich, opulent exterior shade and featuring all the vintage style you could want, this 1948 Ford Super Deluxe is one of those timeless antiques you just cant help but stare at. Its an outstanding specimen that captures a truly iconic model at a pivotal time in automotive history and it runs with a confidence inspiring smoothness thats awfully hard to come by in cars from this era. With WWII having come to an end just a few years before this 48 rolled out, the automotive industry was still in the process of re-establishing its equilibrium and it seems as if Ford lavished all of its pent up creative abilities onto the model, which would give way to a series of more modern but less ornate successors only a year later. Its dressed in an appealing rich shade of burgundy draped over its exterior - this vintage Fords thoroughly authentic appearance comes as no accident as this is its original color. Theres quite a collection of chrome on display - an outstanding, four bar front grille that sits over a beefy bumper carrying a pair of amber fog lights, long stretches of trim on its sides and a pair of side mirrors perched on the doors. The cabin is surrounded by clear glass including that signature two panel front windshield - and fresh rubber seals are in place as protection from the elements. The gray cloth interior has been refurbished with an era-appropriate look and shows a lot of craftsmanship, with two rows of well-padded bench seats that are nice and comfortable, flanked by solid-looking door panels bearing handles in fine condition. The dash area just beyond the stock steering wheel really looks sharp - it offers an expanse of smooth steel thats accented with an ivory colored insert featuring an instrument cluster whose factory-issue gauges remain easily readable, with an array of matching control knobs just underneath. The stock AM radio sits at the center and after more than 70 years of service its still operational. Below, a period correct heater box, quite possibly the original, is still up to the task of keeping things comfortable inside the cabin during the upcoming cooler months. Theres plenty of space in the broad trunk area, with a full-size factory spare standing by in its proper upright position. Underneath the tapered hood is a 239-cubic inch V8 thats almost certainly the same engine this vintage Ford began life with. Its surrounding compartment is impressively clean and has been kept in almost entirely stock configuration - an aftermarket Optima battery being about the only exception in sight. The V8 is armed with a fresh 2-barrel carb on top thats covered by a compact stock black air cleaner and runs smooth and strong, assisted by a surprisingly effective manual choke and added electronic ignition to provide this Super Deluxe with dependable performance in all kinds of weather. The engine pairs with a 3-speed manual transmission to make up an entirely period-appropriate drivetrain thats fully road-ready. Below, the undercarriage underscores the notion that this was one sturdily built car. A substantially-sized X brace is joined by a series of horizontal supports to provide a level of structural rigidity that was very unusual for its time, providing a nice, solid feeling as this outstanding classic cruises on its set of 16 factory-style wheels with Ford-badged chrome center caps wrapped with 6.00 R16 whitewall tires. Thoroughly well cared for and benefitting from a thorough restoration, this 1948 Ford Super Deluxe stands ready to offer proper bragging rights for its next lucky owner. Call today!
