1948 Plymouth Other De Luxe Club Coupe
Beautiful looking, running, and driving hot rod with Power Steering, Power Brakes, 4 speed automatic (3 speed with OD), V-8 power, and Air Conditioning. High quality older build, well sorted out and extremely well built with late model front clip with coil springs, and rack and pinion steering. 302 V-8 runs and starts excellent thanks to a modern carburetor with a perfectly set electric choke. Starts right up hot or cold, runs smooth and strong, never gets hot. 9” 3:23 Ford rear, bulletproof. Drive it anywhere, I can’t stress enough how well this car runs and drives. Brand new wheels and front tires. Glass is flawless. Beautiful and comfy custom interior (beautiful headliner too) in a super solid, straight car. Full dual exhaust with iron manifolds so no leaks and a really nice mellow hotrod tone. Roomy will seat 5 and a nice tight cabin with new seals so it’s not all drafty and whistley. Very pleasant and quiet inside with the windows up - very unusual for a custom in my experience. Car has a radio in the glovebox and it works but its old... cassette haha. Easy to upgrade.

Minor issues: driver’s window regulator or handle skips. You can get the window up and down but it needs help. No keys for doors. Trunk “key” is a bit clunky but it works. Cowl flap handle came off one day and I can’t get in there to fix it (back issue) but it stays closed and you’ve got A/c to get cool!
The How, What, Why, Where: I was in California and I saw the dusty roof of this car in a garage, went and knocked on the door. The widow of the man who loved and built this car sold it to me and told me how her husband spent over $40000 and three yearson a complete teardown and rebuild of everything. 15 coats of hand-rubbed lacquer. It had been sitting for some time so I drained out the fuel, put in a new battery and it fired right up. This car was LOVED and built right with no budgetor hurry and it shows. I would estimate less than 5,000 miles on the build. My daughter and I have enjoyed it for some time but I just bought a new toy and it's time for this one to go!
