One look at a 1946 Ford Super Deluxe convertible like this, and you can't help but feel patriotic. After all, this was the first full production year after WWII, and an eager nation was ready to get their hands on a vehicle that would once again celebrate the open road. This flathead V8 droptop perfectly represents this optimistic time in America.
This red seems to fit this car perfectly. It's an older lacquer application, so it really gives a classic vibe whenever you get near. And a vibrant color like this is great to have on a sunshine-friendly convertible. There's an honesty in this total package that gives this one the kind of sprit you want when looking for a true classic. You see it everywhere from the artful chrome bumpers with a hint of patina, to the full-length trim, to the two-piece wheels with iconic whitewalls. It even has a little extra flair in period-correct upgrades, like the hood ornament and dual spotlights. So this one knows how to represent its era with distinction.
Inside, the period-correct look continues, and there are also obvious signs of the right investments. For example, the seats and door panels couldn't have lasted 70+ years looking this good. So the cloth and vinyl feel far fresher while remaining '40s-style correct. And the correct dual spoke steering wheel with beauty ring is a focal point, so it has an attractive finish. While this was based on a pre-war design, Ford was still leading in interior style. That's why you have a fashionable and symmetrical dashboard that's a perfect piece of art deco. And this even has the right features from a power convertible top to the AM radio that's still cranking out tunes!
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 is such a legend that it really needs no introduction. So you'll be quite happy to know that this convertible originally came with the V8 upgrade, and this is even believed to be the original motor. And as you dig deeper, you start to see this really has all the right period-correct components that will have purists pointing under your hood at the car shows. On the road, it provides a wonderful punch and a great soundtrack. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and it provides good control for you to show this one off with ease.
This is the well-presented classic that provides a genuine classic spirit and plenty of wind in your hair. It's true vintage fun, and it's ready to run right now. Call today!!!
