Fat-fendered Fords don't get much cooler than this 1946 convertible dressed in its best black attire. These cars offer full-sized comfort and distinctive good looks, making them some of the most popular for a full makeover like this. With a potent Chevy V8 underneath, this one also drives as great as it looks.

The first thing you notice about this big black Ford is the ultra-glossy paint job. Not radical, but enough to know that some skilled metalworkers were behind the build, and the way it comes together makes the car look bad to the bone and everything was shaved or modified. The taillights are cool LEDs that fit in the original oval housings. Finish quality is gorgeous and if you can't get attention with this big black Ford, you're really doing something wrong.

The interior is the same kind of quality, keeping everything that works and simply smoothing away the things that don't. Supple black vinyl covers on a set of bucket seats and artfully designed door panels look exactly right and there are plush black carpets on the floor to make it feel luxurious. There are vestiges of the original dash in there, with modern gauges living behind the bright chrome panels.

A Chevy LT1 350 cubic inch V8 provides motivation, and there are few better choices for your vintage rod, even if it is a Ford. All dressed up with billet and chrome details that make it sparkle. There's a big aluminum radiator up front that doesn't seem to have any trouble keeping it cool. The ford is equipped with a roadster shop chasis and independent front suspension and includes power rack-and-pinion steering, vented power disc brakes, and a fat sway bar, while out back a 9in rear end offers tallish gears for calm performance on the highway. A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission makes for easy cruising and unbeaten reliability, and it rolls on a set of Boyd wheels.

Driven just enough to ensure its reliable and sorted, this first-rate rod is ready to rumble. Beautifully built for a figure that was surely two or three times the asking price, it will always be the center of attention. Call today!
