Dodge finally broke from its Special and Special DeLuxe names in 1949, introducing its first post-war design. The entry-level model was the Wayfarer, which was lower and wider that the previous model. The car was apowered by a 103-hp, 230-cid flathead six-cylinder engine that was paired with either a three speed manual or a Gyro-Matic fluid-drive, semi-automatic transmission. The Wayfarer was offered as either a two-door business coupe, a two-door sedan, or a roadster—the least expensive full-size American droptop available at the time, priced at $1,700. The Wayfarer nameplate only lasted 4 model years, and the rare roadster model for only 3 (49-51). Dodge Wayfarers are quite rare today, mostly because they were ultra-affordable and basic transportation when new and were put to steady work from the outset. The remaining models, if found in good condition, are actually quite charismatic! RARE FIND! Fresh from a large, privately held collection featuring many 40's and 50's convertibles comes this cute 1949 Dodge Wayfarer Roadster, one of only 5,240 produced. Options include the Gyro-Matic fluid drive transmission and the Mopar All Weather Comfort System heater. Recent services include new plugs, wires, points, battery, oil/filter, and carb rebuild. Newer gas tank from older restoration. Beautifully restored interior and convertible top. Driver quality paint, near flawless chrome, solid and clean underneath and under the hood. Rides on nice whitewall radial tires. Plexiglass side windows are there and pop into place like they did in 1949! Here is your chance to own a rare and unique roadster without having to break the bank! Reasonable offers encouraged. Financing/Shipping available. We sell worldwide!
