1948 Ford Super Deluxe Tudor V8 – video walkaround

This is a 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Tudor V8 in Glade Green with the original gray cloth interior. It has a 239 cubic inch flathead V8 that produced about 100 brake horse power at 3800 RPM. The car is equipped with manual transmission. 1948 Fords were continuations of the 1946-47 body styles with only slight trim changes such as; re-positioned parking lamps, new deck lid trim and interior gauges.

Ford produced 82,161 Super Deluxe 2-door sedans for 1948. Total output for the Super Deluxe series was 219,320 units (this doesn’t include the 2 door coupe as no production figures are available). Interestingly the 1948 model run ended early so that the factories could retool for the all-new 1949 models. These new models were also introduced early in June 1948.
