That '48 belonged to my friend Steve who was the one they called on the phone. I tried to get him to send me pictures or to go and see it with him but he never could come with either. Yea, it was in really good shape.

Hook up and tow

I realize it's television but didn't realize you could just hook up that 48 with no windows and just sail on down the highway.... guess they haven't read all the cautionary tales here

Just saw the show, man was that 48 sweet. Anybody know what model it was? It was pretty amazing how they just hooked up to it and drove away. You think it needs a new axle?

The axle on the 48 had leaf springs. It didn't look that bad on the show. I would bet that you could go down to the local NAPPA store and get new bearings and seals.
