1948 Ford OtherHISTORYRecently, y neighbor told me that he had decided to sell his beloved 1948 Ford, nd asked if I would like to come over and have a closer look. He explained that soon his wife would be having surgery and also, ecause of his own health concerns, e needed to sell the car. I love that hot rod! A California beauty. However, t the end of the day, ecause I already have too many toys, explained to my neighbor that I would be willing to find a new owner for the Ford. With this in mind, itle to the car has been put into my name, o I will be selling to you directly, ith a RED HOT REASONABLE RESERVE!!

The paint is approximately 15 years old and, s such, as its share of checking, ome oxidation, nd other imperfections. You may want to repaint the car, lthough, n my opinion, t is perfectly enjoyable now. The advantage of older paint is that nothing can be hidden. I have been able to find no signs of cancerous rust in the paint, r underneath the car. There is a narrow line of rust, rom left to right, nside the trunk, earest to the back end of the car. This does not appear to be extensive, nd should be an easy fix. I have found an approximately 1" tear in the sheet metal of the driver front fender low down, long the lower edge, ust behind the wheel well.
All chrome, lass, nd lenses are in good to excellent condition. The windshield looks excellent, ith no cracks, itting, r rock chips. The windshield rubber could be replaced, s there is a small leak near the top, s evidenced when washing the car. Some of the other rubber could also be replaced to be up to the standards of the rest of the exterior. The tires are in very good condition, ith excellent tread. I can find no age cracking between the treads, r on the sidewalls. The rear tires are 255 60R15, nd the front 225 60R15.THE INTERIOR, n my opinion, ooks as good in person as it does in the photographs. All carpets, inyl front and rear seats, oor panels, hrome gearshifter, ontrol knobs, nterior door openers, indow winders, hrome dash, auges, ecarra leather steering wheel, ront seat belts and more are in good to excellent condition. The headliner is particularly nice. There are no rear seat belts. Latches should be located for the passenger and driver wind wings.MECHANICS
But the best is yet to come! The Ford 5.0 HO engine starts right up, uns cool and strong, as EXCELLENT OIL PRESSURE, nd does everything these favored power plants have done so well for hot rod enthusiasts over the years. The newly rebuilt transmission shifts smoothly in all gears, nd is happiest going into drive or reverse from park when the engine is warm (a cold engine could stall). Good brakes. Excellent exhaust system.
WHAT WORKS? Among other things, he AC, eater, orn, il pressure, oltage, nd temperature gauges, achometer, ight and left exterior turn signal lights (front and back), icense plate light, eadlights, ncluding high and low beams, unning lights, indshield wipers, nside door handles, nd hidden exterior driver door release, ocated just under the car, ear the driver door lower rear corner. There is no exterior passenger door release, ut it will open from inside the car. Also working are the interior hood and trunk pull releases (located near the left side of the steering column), nd more. Currently, he speedometer/odometer, as gauge and clock do not work, nd there is no emergency brake. Does not include power steering or cruise control.
The above is based on my personal observation, nd is not a professional inspection or warranty. You can expect that some things may not work up to your own, r your mechanics standards, nd that more improvements, oth mechanically and cosmetically will most likely be found, hat you or your mechanic would like to do.
