239 Flathead V8
1946 Ford has a little extra flair on the outside, a little extra comfort on the inside, and a little extra growl from the Flathead V8 under the hood. It all makes for a cool post-war classic that has the feeling like you\'re getting a little more of what you love the most.
The black paint has a true radiance in sunshine that really helps to distinguish this one right from the first impression. It has a nice luster the really makes you feel the optimism an immediate post-WWII car like this gave the world. Plus, the glossy black gives a contrasting color, but complementing shine, to the full brightwork package. You can tell there was a recent investment in making sure all the chrome and trim (a hallmark of this classic) is looking its best. There\'s even some added flair from upgrades like the half-chrome headlights and polished wheel trim. And when you look beyond the big shine, there are even nice fundamentals, including good body lines, a functioning cowl, and doors that close with confidence. It\'s a well-done total package, right down to the red accenting up front that coordinates with the red steelie wheels.
Inside was restored with custom two-tone gray vinyl. The split bench and taut door panels share tuck and roll style inserts that delivers a terrific look. Plus, every major component feels fresh from investment. Just like the exterior, you can see a very detailed look where the gauges have the classic style, and the textured feel of the dash matches the door tops. Even the auxiliary readouts under the dash we installed to coordinate with much of the trim.
Under the hood is a Ford\'s 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 that used to bring cruising happiness back in the day. There\'s a terrific appearance with the tidy setup, shining red block paint, and plenty of polish, including the bolts on the namesake head. So it has the kind of appearance that people love to see, so it will have you lifting the hood wherever you park. But the same items that make this look so fresh (right down to the belts, hoses, and wires) also make this a great driver. You have upgrades like a 12-volt system and alternator. It fires up readily, and the Red\'s headers help give some more bass to the dual exhaust. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you classic-style control over the motor, and the classic whitewalls hide a modern tread. So the total package feels solid, fun, and absolutely vintage.
This is an impressive Ford that turns back the clock in all the best ways and gives you all the right extras along the way. Don\'t miss this deal, call today!!!
