classic vintage chrome convertible drop top wire wheels dual carb tan brown
3 Speed Manual
221 Flathead V8
If you like the iconic look of the late '30s Fords, smooth flathead V8 power, and sporty roofline, then this restored 1935 Ford Model 48 Phaeton is just waiting for you to drive it home. History has an interesting way of making you appreciate a classic like this. The phaeton body style has a thin roofline opening up the car even with the top in place. That gives this American classic a very European feel. It was far... from the most expensive car Ford offered in 1935, but today it has a great sporty profile that keeps it especially in-demand. This pre-war Ford has gone through a restoration in the 1980s and 1990s, and it has been treated with proper respect since. The excellence is seen in much more than the way the tan paint looks so period-correct, or how the red pinstripe nicely matches the wire wheels. To understand the full quality, just look at how all of the 80+ year-old steel retains its sleek lines, or how the doors can still easily be open and shut with confidence. All the details are right on this one, including the waterfall chrome grille, etched chrome bumpers with center dip curve, whitewalls, and even the Ford V8 hubcaps. And the cool, sleek, greyhound hood ornament that gives the premium image this car deserves. The gorgeous condition of brown interior is another sign of the careful restoration. The comfortable rows of bench seats look as inviting as you favorite easy chair. A beautiful banjo-style steering wheel, big round gauges with a gorgeous period look, and etched side wind deflectors all help with the upscale feel. As you look over all the details, you see a few of the right subtle upgrades, like a SW fuel gauge and seatbelts. You begin to realize this is more than a parade car that's a genuinely comfortable vintage cruiser. Everyone from outlaws and enthusiasts love Ford's awesome 221 cubic inch flathead V8. The tidy engine bay looks quite authentic, and there's even documentation that suggests this is the original motor. More importantly, these V8s gave Ford an unbeatable reputation of a powerful personality that had a masterful amount of torque on tap. It only gets better on this example with a few subtle upgrades like dual Stromberg carbs and a glasspack-style dual exhaust. It means the V8 delivers extra power and a stronger note of that unbeatable Flathead soundtrack. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily with light clutch action, and there were even hydraulic brakes added for better usability. Complete with maintenance records, this is the distinct phaeton that was made to enjoy on the road. So if you love driving you classics, and having all eyes on you, call today!

Terms & Conditions
We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on . That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).
FEES: A documentation fee of $199 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.
AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel offers/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.
CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning buyer, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.
INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.
PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making offers/offers.
SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.
DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.
DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.
VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.
MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase. CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.
AS-IS: All vehicles are sold "AS IS" and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!
