Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This is one of those full custom builds that instantly gets attention. After all, even its first impression gives away that this 1946 Ford Cabriolet expertly blends classic styling and modern performance. So while you love the iconic fat-fendered Ford silhouette; you'll really enjoy the ultra-slick red appearance, custom leather A/C interior, and LS1 V8 that give you all the best in modern convenience.
The investment in this body reminds us instantly why we all love the rounded curves of the 1940s Fords. You know there was a lot that went into the bodywork before the paint even was laid down. That's why there not even a ripple in the 70+ year-old steel and the door fit like a seamless s part of the design. The modern red that's laid on top has that kind of quality clearcoat that really lets you appreciate every curve as the light rolls evenly across the entire body. Some of the brightwork was eliminated for the more modern appearance, but all the right elements are still in place for a great vintage look. After all, the bumpers shine like mirrors, and the three-bar grille is iconic. Plus, people won't be able to take their eye off the full-length trim that starts at the hood and runs as an unbroken line as it dips into the trunk. And even if people somehow thought this is just a factory Ford, the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with aggressive 17/18-inch front/rear stagger would clue them in on this custom car's power.
Pop the remote door openers to reveal a full custom interior by the masters at Paul Atkins Interiors. The amazing uniform build has the two-tone tan expertly weaving within the unique patterns on the seats, doors, and center console (it even matches the tan folding top.) It's this kind of presentation and investment that you know the interior can win awards all on its own. But more than just look great, this is a true driver's machine, too. Those leather bucket seats up front are vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1940s. You'll slip behind the chrome three-spoke steering wheel, which gives you a clear view at the full Classics Instruments gauge package that look like their own works of art. Plus, you also get all the right features like power seats, power windows, tilt steering wheel, power steering, and an AM/FM stereo with aux input that's ready to accept your modern music players. Best of all, the modern R134a air conditioning is blowing ice-cold, so you can stay cool while cruising in your cool droptop.
While you've seen plenty of custom work on the interior and exterior, the best is saved for under the hood. Peek beneath the custom body-colored panel, and you'll see a modern 5.7-liter LS1 V8. The fuel-injected powerplant borrowed from the C5 Corvette program is a serious power upgrade...and it's only the beginning of this Ford's performance components. When you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll also spot upgrades like the Mustang II-style independent front suspension, tubular control arms, and front disc brakes. So if you're starting to see this custom as an easy cruiser near or far, you'd be right. In fact, it even has a modern four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
You've looking at a full custom build that is just as adept at taking home all the awards as it is staying cool on the morning commute. It's the true classic that can do it all, and with only 810 miles on this build, why wouldn't you? Something this special won't stay long in our showroom. Call today!!!
