Henry Ford, owner and inspiration behind numerous designs over the years passed away April 7, 1947. This was a tough time for Ford during the Great Depression of the 1930's and the WWII in the 1940's. The US economy continued to keep Ford afloat and consumers ensured that Ford would remain in business for a long and lucrative history. Very few changes were made to the 1948 product line from the year before and Ford was focusing most of their energy into the restyled 1949 line. The demand for automobiles was in full swing by the time the Post-War boom began and half-way through the year, Ford had topped their 1947 production and began to produce the new 1949 line.

The only convertible ever built for the 1948 Ford lineup, the Super Deluxe Convertible was definitely an eye-catching automobile.

The Packard Super DeLuxe Eight was introduced in 1949 through 1950 and was the main reason why Custom Eight sales dropped drastically following the 1948 model year. Dealers could supply the Super's cloisonné-decorated hubcaps and it shared the grille style and wheelbase of the more expensive Custom. The Super Deluxe featured a 327-cid straight eight engine that was nearly as smooth as the large 356 unit. The Super was priced about $700-900 cheaper than the Custom and still featured many of the same luxuries as the Custom. Enthusiasts also agreed that the Custom Eight had better performance than the heavier Custom even though it featured a smaller engine.

In the 1949 model year nearly 3,000 2-door/4-door sedans were sold, 685 convertibles, and 4 sedan/limousine models. The following year production peaked at around 3,000 of the 2-door/4-door sedans and around 600 convertibles. Priced new, the Super could be purchased for $2,894.
