Description

1935 Ford Model 48 3 Window Deluxe Coupe

The Model 48 was an update on Ford's V8 powered Model 40A, the company's main product. In 1935, Ford's combination of price, practicality, and looks vaulted the company ahead of rival Chevrolet for the sales crown that year, with 820,000 total cars sold. The high end 3 window coupe was produced in relatively limited numbers, about 31,513 while the 5 window coupes sold 110,000.

For consignment, a 1935 Ford Model 48 3 window deluxe coupe with a title verified 11,265 actual miles. This is an investment grade example that shows beautifully and harkens back to a day when luxury became a staple in manufacturing production lines.

Exterior
Bathed in Cordoba Gray, a classic Ford color of the era with brown undertones, it's an especially lovely color for the car and certainly a welcome departure from black. It's a wonderful contrast with the red 16-inch wire wheels and is accentuated by a thin red pinstripe on the shoulder line. Vertical blades of the tall grille are painted body color and contrasted by the chrome horizontal grates. Yellow fog lamps in chrome barrels fall below symmetrical horns and large headlights mounted on curvaceous front fenders. The greyhound hood ornament represents speed and leaps outstretched over the Ford V8 emblem. Side vents on the engine covers, running boards covered in black rubber, and the forward leaning tire case in the back combined with a rounded cab create an iconic profile. This really is a pure 1930's car in fantastic condition on the outside. A few minor scratches, cracking, some bubbles, and paint drips detract only slightly from its quality, but overall this car shows very well.

Interior
Soft tan door panels and their delicate appearing hardware are in excellent shape. The mohair bench seat is embellished with a series of stitches that travel from the top and along the seat bottom, with piping on the outer shell like an art deco sofa. For the back seat, you'll have to step outside and open the rumble seat in smooth brown vinyl and a carpeted footwell. The dark grey banjo steering wheel has subtle red accents and matches the paint on the dashboard. There we find simple vintage gauges with a couple of modern ones attached below the dash. In the center is a large AM radio tuner dial flanked by a series of ivory knobs. A thin shifter curves its way up from the floor topped with an ivory handle. On the floor, we find a rubber mat cut to fit the car, and some Ford branded carpeted mats for extra protection. The soft headliner and visors are in beautiful condition and a modern speaker occupies the overhead console.

Drivetrain
Looking pristine behind the engine covers, a 239ci flathead V8 in dark green and with 24 stud heads is right at home and fed by a 2-barrel carburetor. A 3-speed manual transmission sets the car in motion and power is routed to the rear axle and 3.78 gears. Drum brakes live in front and back.

Undercarriage
Happy to report a clean and dry car underneath. The X-frame and rails are black and devoid of surface rust and we note no accumulations of fluid anywhere. The dual exhaust is heat wrapped before encountering two stock style mufflers then exiting with the help of chrome ornamental exhaust deflectors. Transverse leaf spring with wishbone suspension is employed by the front and a transverse leaf spring is in the back.

Drive-Ability
The old flathead fires right up after the usual prep, and into first gear we go. Our relatively flat test loop is probably better than the roads this car encountered in its younger days and as a result, the ride is smooth with just a hint of bounce. We have 100 horsepower at our disposal and that's more than enough to propel this car at a good clip as we engage the mechanical drum brakes to slow the 7-inch tires down. All the bells, whistles, and lights work. The only thing that didn't is the radio which has power, but does not make sound.

You can wave from the cozy cab of this car as it makes its way down the parade route into the show. This is a fine example of a mid-30's Ford and a 3-window coupe to boot! If you have a gap in your collection and have been looking for this model, take a serious look at this well maintained car.
