A full custom classic, this 1946 Ford Deluxe sedan streetrod offers beautiful paint, plenty of V8 power, and fresh A/C interior that make it stand out everywhere. It's a mix of comfort, power, and uniqueness that makes it irresistible.

Do you know why you can't take your eyes off the glossy paint? We do. There was the kind of investment in the dark red that tells you not only money was put into this classic, but also a lot of careful time. You're looking at a complete frame-off five-year restoration that was completed in 2011, and only about 10k miles put on it since then. So this '40s Ford retains the kind of quality that radiates no matter if it's parked in the sunlight of the car show lawn or the neon of your favorite car hop. And you want your 1946 Ford to be a true red-blooded American like this one, because this was the first model year of civilian car production after WWII. But more than just patriotic, this classic inspires pride because even the details look great. Powder-coated bumpers, complete trim, black sun visor, and nicely fitting panels create a cut-above custom. And it's all finished off with the 15-inch Centerline wheels that shine as brightly as the paint.

Inside, you instantly know this has been fully customized once you take one look at the seats. After all, bucket seats and a center console with a cup holder were decades away when this Ford first came into this world. Yours is even power adjustable to your perfect driving position. But more than just custom, this is a fresh package. They invested over $4,000 in 2018 for new fabric and giving this all a well-coordinated look that will make you want to cruise this classic with pride. From the driver's seat you can see a lot of investment when into custom work. You have all the right conveniences like an upgraded retro-style AM/FM stereo w/CD player in the glovebox. And everyone stays comfortable with modern R134a air conditioning. The steering wheel has plenty of wood and chrome, and it's mounted on a Flaming River tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of Dolphin gauges with retro-style markings and a cool green glow. Plus, the large SunPro tach on the dash is a nice indication there's something special under the hood.

It's nice to see upgraded Ford power under the hood of a classic blue oval custom. This is a 289 cubic-inch V8 borrowed from another Ford legend the 1966 Mustang. It has also been treated to upgrades such as bright valve covers, a newer radiator, and the extra power of a Holley four-barrel carburetor. And you get much more than just an upgraded V8. This Ford was meant for cruising, so it also has a three-speed automatic transmission, newer front sway bar, and the upgraded to a tubular A-arm independent front suspension. The front end was even aligned in 2018. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this is the kind of cool custom that's easy to drive any day.

The sale comes complete with a detailed restoration photos book and build receipts. This is the slick-looking and smooth-running vintage Ford with all the features you want. So if you like taking you classic everywhere, and looking great doing it, call today!
