World War Two had been over about 13 months when along came the introduction of the 1948 models. People were scrambling to purchase one as cars used during the war were just worn out, gasoline rationing was over and they were ready to roll and that roll continued for the next 10 years. The 1948 models were basically the same as 1942’s as car manufacturers had those designs and with modest refinements could get production going in a hurry! They did that and at the same time were designing the completely new models for 1949!!
