1948 Ford Super - 8 Additional Info:

Up for auction is this very nice '48 Ford Super-8, 4 door sedan. It still has the original flathead V-8 engine & 3 spd transmission with shift on the tree. The car went though a restoration about 1995. The engine starts easily with no smoking and runs smooth with lots of pep & runs cool. The tranny shifts nicely, has a strong clutch with no chattering. I've been driving this car around the country side almost daily for the past 3 weeks with no problems. The brakes have been redone and work excellent. The front end has all new parts and goes down the road very nice. This car keeps up with traffic very well. The tires have good tread with only very slight checking. The doors, windows, trunk and hood all open and close very nice. The glass is all good with no cracks and slight separation on the window wings. This car has three nice options - sun-visor, fender skirts and spotlight. The paint is nice with some minor scratches from use. The worst scratch being on the one lower fender skirt. The paint is not of show quality, however, more daily driver quality but still looks very nice. It has newer re-chromed bumpers that look great on this stately car. The balance of the stainless trim is very nice with one small dent on the passenger side fender trim - but not terrible. This car has the original nice rims, hub-caps and beauty rings. The rockers and floor pans are nice and solid as is the trunk floor. The car has a true dual exhaust front to back with no Y-pipe. It sounds really cool. The headlights, taillights, blinkers and dash lights all work. It needs a new speedo cable. The amp gauge, oil pressure, amp & temp gauge all work. The gas gauge is working part-time.(could be a ground issue). The gauge faces are in beautiful shape. It has a radio, however, not working. It has a nice shape unmolested dash. The interior has high quality seat covers, new door panels and original headliner. The interior is in nice over-all condition. It very comfortable to ride in. The E-brake needs drivers side cable fixed to work properly. I'm confident the new owner will love 'cruisin' in this old classic Ford.
