Classic style meets some very vivid upgrades on this 1946 Ford Club Coupe. So while you're admiring classic lines, don't forget to check out the upgraded V8, overdrive transmission, custom interior, and all the other unique pieces that make this a true custom street machine.
It's hard not to love a '46 Ford. It tells a story with its style rooted in a pre-war design and a company just trying to get product into the hands of a hungry post-war USA. So it carries great classic details, like the alligator hood, two-piece windshield, full length side trim, and two-piece wheel covers. But of course, this one is far more than just vintage. It has a cool street machine paint theme where the purple has a hint of metallic, and it streaks down the side like the speed is pushing it to consume the turquoise. The finish isn't perfect, and so the value price can leave room for improvement if you like. But there's also something undeniably cool about having a classic style rod with a bit of an aged-in look to make it appear like it's been lurking the streets for decades. Plus, you have the deleted front bumper, louvered hood, louvered trunk, and flush fitting headlights for some great custom details.
The interior keeps more of the classic street machine style, and now adds in plenty of extra comfort. It starts with dual leather bucket seats borrowed for a later model luxury car. So you get plenty of individual comfort. These have a hint of the classic tuck and roll style pattern, and that's repeated on the rear panel and doors for a quality overall presentation. And speaking of the door panels, they are done with nice accessories, like the billet handles and turquoise embroidery announcing this is a '46 Ford. The dash carries the same two-tone style of the exterior, and you may also notice provisions for air conditioning (with vents, controls, and an outlet in the firewall.) It's a great driver-oriented setup with three-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel, a tilt steering column, tall shifter with cool piston topper, crisp Dolphin gauges, and a column-mounted tach.
The engine bay is dressed nicely with a smooth firewall and Edelbrock valve covers that are painted to match the exterior turquoise. Plus, at its heart is a GM 350 cubic-inch crate V8. It's upgraded with the right pieces like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, Holley fuel pump, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It fires up readily, and the shorty headers let it exhale with power into the dual exhaust. Out on the road, you have worthwhile upgrades like the Mustang II-style independent front end, power brakes w/discs up front, and rack & pinion steering. Plus, the upgraded four-speed automatic transmission has highway-ready overdrive to make even the longer trips comfortable.
Compete with maintenance records, this is the kind of classic that comes with the right features to enjoy every day. So if you like affordability and usability in your custom car, don't miss this coupe. Call now!
