Rally Cars for sale

Rally Preparation Services is pleased to offer this 1948 Ford Coupe classic car for sale. This long-distance endurance rally car was originally prepared to tackle one of the toughest driving challenges in the world – the Peking to Paris Motor Challenge but the car has yet to enter a competition or take to the start line. A unique opportunity to acquire a turn key, ready to win car, for endurance rallying either as an experienced or a novice participant

During World War II, Ford Motor Company manufactured many war materials, including more than 8,000 B-24 Liberator bombers. Once the war ended, it was time to resume car production. Post war production was essentially based on carry-over 1942 models. Ford’s renown advertising agency created a successful advertising campaign showing a hand holding a crystal ball with the words “There’s a Ford in your future.” Then in October 1945, the agency promoted ‘V8 Day’ showing off the new Ford styles. The clever promotion capitalized on the ‘V-J Day’ (Victory in Japan) and ‘V-E Day’ (Victory in Europe) celebrations. Almost half a million people went on to place orders for the car. A major contrast to earlier on that year when Ford was losing $9 million USD a month, or about $120 million USD in comparison today.

1948 was the final year of production for the old-style Ford and marked the end of the model and a generational change.

Built into its current specification in the US, a very last-minute change of plans by the owner left the car sat on the side lines waiting to go. Shipped to Rally Preparation Services this year to prepare the car ready for sale, the car is now offered as a ready to rally option for anybody looking to tackle long distance endurance rallies. The car boasts a recent engine rebuild, gearbox and axle upgrades along with a host of upgrades to go rallying and almost a brand-new car.

The car is currently residing at RPS’ sister company - the SASCo storage facility and available for inspection.

All viewings and test drives welcomed by appointment at Rally Preparation Services All enquiries please to Martin on martin@rpscvm.com or telephone +44 (0)1993 358009.
