Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1946 Ford Coupe Super Deluxe has classic flathead V8 power and that in-demand sleek shape. Plus, this classic also has just the right hints of upgrades to keep this vintage Ford a cool cruiser for modern times.
This is a great year to own a classic American car. 1946 was Ford's first car model year back in civilian production after WWII, and this coupe does a great job of showcasing this return to style. Gone are drab war colors, and so this one is painted a regal-like blue some years ago. Plus, some great American iconic elements came back, such as the bright chrome grille, chrome bumpers, and long hood ornaments. Even the whitewall tires are a great reminder that rubber shortages were gone and style was back. Overall the coupe body always just seem to have a bit sleek/speedy style. As so while you'll love this car's vintage attitude, there's also little touches of street machine flair with items like the half-chrome headlights, wide dual exhaust tips, and blue dot taillights.
The first impression of the interior is pure classic style. The striped gray cloth on the seats gives you some added comfort, and it coordinates nicely with the door panels, carpeting, and headliner. While this was based on a pre-war design, Ford was still leading in interior style. So you'll slip behind the original-style two-spoke wheel and gaze over the fashionable and symmetrical dashboard that's a perfect piece of art deco. This is meant to be a driver's classic, and so you have handy upgrades mounted under the dash, like the AM/FM/CD stereo for modern music. There are also auxiliary readouts for oil pressure and coolant temp to keep you well-informed about what's going on under the hood.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 is truly a classic engine, and so it's great to see so many classic details in its presentation. The oil bath air cleaner, oil filter canister, decals, and Holley 2100 dual-barrel carb are all part of this correct-style presentation. This is built to also be a driver, and so they did upgrade the electrical system to 12 volts. The V8 fires up cleanly, and the added dual exhaust gives this a great soundtrack. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and it all provides good power for getting to the car shows with ease.
We all love the look of a classic coupe. It only gets better on one that has the right history, worthwhile upgrades, and an affordable price. Don't miss this fun Ford, call today!
