1948 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible, Yellow, for sale in Saint Louis, Missouri, for $49,900.
Thanks to renowned designer Eugene Gregorie, the automotive world was blessed with some of the greatest styling to come from Ford. The 1948 Super Deluxe you see here was one of his last designs before leaving Ford Motor Company, one that aided him in winning the Designer Lifetime Achievement Award in 1990. Most however, remember the 1948 Ford as the car Ralph Macchio’s character, Daniel Larusso, drove in the 1984 film Karate Kid. Given to Daniel by his mentor Mr. Miyagi, the car listed here is almost a dead ringer for the movie car used in several scenes. Considered a timeless classic by many collectors, this 1948 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible listed here is a wonderfully restored example finished in a stunning color combination. The beautiful Maize Yellow exterior is complemented nicely by the Tan Stayfast top and two tone Red Vinyl and Tan Cloth interior. Powered by the 239ci flathead engine and 3 speed manual transmission, it is a joy to drive, with ample power to cruise today’s roads. Other notable features include and under dash heater, working AM Radio, Power top, Fender Shirts, reproduction Firestone Wide White Wall tires, dual exhaust with “Ford” script exhaust turndown tips, Bumper Guards, dual side mirrors, dual sunvisors, full gauge cluster and more. This wonderful driving car has seen only 8,722 miles since its restoration, and although done several years ago, still presents itself very well. A dry Texas car for most of its life, it has survived well and appears to be very solid and largely original. The engine purrs with a symphony only a flathead can produce and flows thru new exhaust with classic resonators. The transmission shifts smoothly, and steering is with almost no effort. The brakes and tires are also in great shape. The paint and chrome are in wonderful condition, as is the stainless trim and interior. Our mechanics has recently performed a fluid service along with an inspection, giving the car a glowing “thumbs up”.
