RARE FIRST YEAR POST WAR CAR, 239 FLATHEAD V8, NICE UNMOLESTED, CLEAN INT, COOL
Attention history lovers, Ford fans, and anyone who likes a good deal on an interesting classic. This 1946 Ford two-door sedan represents the first full production year after WWII, so it's one of the best ways to celebrate the open road. And with a flathead V8 under the hood, nothing is stopping you.
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 two-door sedan does a great job of showcasing this return to style. Gone are drab war colors, and so this one is painted a high-gloss dark green. Plus, some great American iconic elements came back, such as the bright chrome grille, chrome bumper, and long hood ornaments. Even the whitewall tires are a great reminder that rubber shortages were gone and style was back.
Inside, the dark black interior has all of the fundamentals covered. Two rows of bench seats, side panels, and carpeting are all in good condition. The three-spoke steering wheel and three-on-the-tree transmission means taking control of this classic is an easy affair.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 really needs no introduction, and you'll be quite happy to know it appears that this coupe originally came with the V8 upgrade. The engine bay is as honest as the rest of this vintage Ford. The carb shows signs of good maintenance, as do the plug wires, voltage regulator, and other essential components. On the road it provides a wonderful punch and a great soundtrack. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and provides good power for getting to car cruises or gatherings with ease.
Here's a classic with a great history and a good price. It's turnkey ready to drive and have fun today, and it will always be the perfect foundation for your next custom build. This Ford is a choose-your-own-adventure to the first person that snaps it up. Call now!!
