1948 Dodge Custom 4 Dr Sedan - Ready to Finish!
1948 Dodge 4 Dr Sedan, D24 w/suicide rear doors. This is NOT a barn find...but is a garage find. This car is originally a California Car....NO RUST OUT! The person we got the car from began to restore it, but never finished because of health reasons. The car still has very acceptable paint and with the right paint shop, flaws could be touched up. All Glass is intact but old and the passenger side front has a small crack in the corner where it looks as though it was hit with a BB or stone, but still intact. The interior looks to be original and the rear seat, head liner and many panels are still nice...but old and aged. Front seat needs to be redone on the bottom but back is still intact. The dash is totally complete with everything it came with from the factory, including optional heater, radio, electric wipers and some other goodies. We just rebuilt the original clock and it keeps perfect time. Flat Head 6 Cyl motor, " Fluid Drive " manual transmission. These were supposed to have been redone some years ago and have very few miles on them. The only items missing are the front and rear bumpers ( they got lost some years ago during the restoration but rebuildable bumpers are on the way to us now) and the 2 stainless pieces that run along the bottoms of the doors at the rocker panels. We also have registration documentation as far back as 1963 and the original Owners Manual which will go with the sale. Car runs and shifts like a new car!
Just installed new front wheel bearings and installed a new 630 CCA Napa Commercial 6V Battery & New 55,000 mile Radials on all 4 corners...and one on the spare wheel! Car just recieved an oil/filter change and complete lubrication on every grease zerk and new rear differential and trans lube.
This car would cost a minimal amount of $$ to finish....Body is in near perfect shape! $7800
We might consider a trade but don't bother writing to us about trading for a ford, boat, motorcycle....we will only Possibly trade for a early 30's to mid 50's GM Hot Rod or Stock....but again, no fords. Trade must be of equal value or better.

Abruptly mounting her ramshackled wheel, fortune has pedalled furiously away.
