STK 2552 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe

The Chrysler Corporation introduced postwar models in late 1945 and they remained largely unchanged through model year 1949. These cars were enormously successful with over 2.2 million built. This 1948 Plymouth Special Deluxe coupe was an Oklahoma car and received a partial restoration in 2016. A single-stage enamel finish of Dove Grey is accented by a generous allotment of chrome, rear fender skirts, steel rims and full factory wheel covers. The interior was nicely restored to original using high-quality grey 'mohair' cloth material with burgundy trim. The classic '40s dashboard, with its full compliment of gauges, still looks very much like it did in 1948. This coupe is powered by Chrysler's 218ci flathead six-cylinder motor rated at 95bhp. These engines were well known for their durability and low-end torque. The motor was rebuilt in 2016 and sounds great. It is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with column shift. Everything under the hood looks very original including the factory 6-volt electrical system. Four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes provide stopping power. This solid Plymouth coupe is ready for your next summer cruise-in. ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
