Rally Preparation Services is delighted to offer this 1948 Ford V8 rally car for sale. We supplied this car early in 2019 as an emergency replacement car for the current owner to take part in the 2019 Peking to Paris Motor Challenge, prepared in a very timely manner by ourselves the Ford Coupe went on to finish a stupendous and very comfortable 6th place overall and 2nd in its class.
The 1948 Ford is a direct evolution of the 1941 model. More modern than its predecessor, the body is wider almost covering the running boards and the wheel arches integrate into the body design. America’s entry into WW2 halted development of passenger cars as energies switched to the war effort.
This Ford was first built as a Long-Distance Rally Car in the United States for the 2016 Peking to Paris but a last-minute change of plans by the owner left the car on the side lines. All the usual modifications and upgrades have been made which have transformed this car into a solid, reliable and competitive car. An ideal “starter” car for a new owner looking for the challenge of long-distance rallying this very much proven rally car has miles of smiles in it.
Safely returned from its first epic adventure this hairy chested Ford is ready for more.
The car is currently residing at RPS’ sister company – the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.
All viewings welcomed by appointment only at Rally Preparation Services.
