Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe Sedan. These big 1940s sedans used to be a mainstay of American highways and by-ways. Unfortunately, 70 years of attrition has taken many off the roads. 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe is in great shape for its age. It was restored in the 90s and has aged into it's current state. Receipts for the restoration are in the trunk. From the cloth interior to the solid, accident and rot free body it's a little worse for weathering and paint fade but in good overall shape. The car has a venerable inline six engine with 3 speed manual and three on the tree shifting. The engine purrs like a kitten and the car drives surprisingly well. The quick starting, smooth running motor belies its 74 years of age. The transmission shifts like butter complimenting the comfortable ride. Everything except for the turn signals is in working order. Other than minor bubbling on the lower rocker panel, the old Plymouth is in great condition. Not bad for an 74-year-old car! Drive as is or take it on as a 'drive while you tinker' restoration project. The price is hard to beat. A good buy for a value conscious collector!
