1935 Ford Model 48 Coupe Deluxe
The 1935 Ford was a thorough refresh on the popular V8-powered Ford. The four-cylinder Model A engine was no longer offered, leaving just the 221 CID V-8 to power every Ford car and truck. The transverse leaf spring suspension remained, but the front spring was relocated ahead of the axle to allow more interior volume. The body was lowered and new “Center-Poise” seating improved comfort.
Visually, the 1935 Ford was much more modern with the grille pushed forward and made more prominent by de-emphasized and more-integrated fenders. Ford Coupes were produced with 3 and 5 Windows in Standard and Deluxe body styles. About 140,000 Ford Coupes were produced. Rumble seats were optional on coupe model.
This Ford Deluxe Coupe was certainly the pride in the collection and meant to be driven. Well maintained throughout, it starts easily hot or cold, runs smooth, drives well and will cruise all day. Upgraded wheels with radial tires gives this Ford a nice stance along with comfortable driving with its radial tires. Paint is shiny with a few blemishes from years of enjoyment. The interior, as the pictures show, is quite handsome and clean.
