1948 Ford Super Deluxe
Cruising is a social activity that primarily consists of driving a car. It can be an expression of the freedom of possessing a driver's license. Cruising is distinguished from regular driving by the social and recreational nature of the activity, which is characterized by an impulsively random, often aimless course. A popular route, (or "strip"), is often the focus of cruising. "Cruise nights" are evenings during which cars drive slowly. A cruise can be a meeting of car enthusiasts at a predetermined location, organized predominantly through the internet, (in recent times), but also largely through mobile phone, word of mouth or simply by a cruise being established enough that it becomes a regular event.
For consignment, a customized for cruising 1948 Ford Super Deluxe. A 302 V8 that's supercharged, and this car has been nosed, decked, and has frenched in the old style headlights. Add in a chopped hardtop paint it beautiful eggplant hue and you are living large 1940's style,. A car really like no other Super Deluxe…super duper!
No lead or body filler for this baby, it's all steel, and the panels fit like a glove. They seem to have been aligned with a laser beam, they are so straight and true. Prior to being reassembled, the top was chopped 4”, the hood louvered with 90 slots, to give it a more proportional look, all surfaces were shaved of any brite work and badging, (including door handles and trunk handle), then the exterior lighting was frenched into the fenders. Spray on the closest blue one can get to eggplant blue, and throw in a custom tubular stainless horizontal grille, with some simple curved horizontal ribbed bumpers. “Bottom” it off with 4 wide sidewall fatties mounted in chromed 5 bolt steel wheels and you are in eye candy land.
Nab the closest 1985 Audi Quattro with two tone white and blue seats, tear them out and stuff them into this machine age interior, and you have a very clean looking comfortable passenger seating area, and it complements the eggplant blue of the exterior. Take a slab of aluminum, machine it to fit the dash of a 48 Ford, and insert gauges and a custom sound system, spray eggplant blue around it, and you have a great looking custom interior. Oh, I need to mention flood the floor with deep blue expensive carpet, and make the remainder of the interior match those Audi seats. Then you can cruise down Main Street, and be a one car parade, all the while turning heads, and grabbing stares. Super duper.
A pop of the hood will make the sound of BLING!! SUPER Charged! 302ci Mustang mill with plenty of chrome, and paint the other parts to match the exterior of the car. A single 4-barrel Edelbrock carb is atop and a C4 3-speed automatic on back with a Ford 9 inch rear.
Shiny immaculate black with hints of the blue, mixed in with red cherry bombs, a free flow exhaust system, and chrome tips…grrrrrrrrowl. A mustang front end for easy steering, and a Lincoln rear end to handle the torque put out by the 302 cubes, and you are going to smell some rubber.
She fires up with a stunning roar, and off it was to the test track. It has ample acceleration, good handling and braking, but it's the cruise that is most impressive. Whether low and slow or a trip down the highway this car handles both with ease, and without a heavy foot, saves some fills for later wasting by laying rubber!
A lot of hot rods go through the doors here at Classic Auto Mall, some stay much longer than others. This Hot Rod Custom is a real eye-catching build, and there truly is something about it when you gaze upon its shiny panels, smell its luxurious interior, hear its throaty growl, touch the awesome super smooth metal panels, and you will want a taste for more. It will not last long folks. A round mound of ground pound Super…Deluxe!
