Before 1949, Ford's post-war automobile offerings were essentially slightly revamped versions of the 1942 model, as Detroit was having trouble keeping up with demand for its existing cars and lacked the resources to develop a new model in the immediate aftermath of the war. The 1948 model range was basically unchanged, again consisting of two trim levels - the Deluxe and Super Deluxe - and the choice of either a 226-cid in-line six or the 239-cid V8 engine. The Super Deluxe boasted chrome window trim and side moldings, horn ring, twin sun visors, armrests and leather upholstery on the convertible. Ford had little trouble selling the V8s in Australia and just over 20,000 found new homes here in between 1946 and 1948.
