Classic style meets some very vivid upgrades on this 1946 Ford Deluxe convertible. So while you're admiring classic lines, don't forget to check out the dual-quad big block power, upgraded chassis, custom interior, and all the other unique pieces that make this a true custom drop-top cruiser.
It's hard not to love a '46 Ford. It tells a story with its style rooted in a pre-war design and a company just trying to get the product into the hands of a hungry post-war USA. So it carries great classic details, like the alligator hood and two-piece windshield. But of course, this one is far more than just vintage. It has a cool street machine paint theme where the yellow is a vibrant base that lets the wave of dark purple start from the rear and creates a sporty streak all the way to the hood. And the mauve dividing line for this unique two-tone seems to almost look like you mixed the two colors together. So it's a bold yet harmonious package. The paint is just the beginning of a full custom style that includes the deleted bumpers, color-matched grille, shaved door handles, sport mirrors, wide exhaust tips, frenched antenna, frenched license plate, and frenched Cadillac-style tail lights. We especially like the trunk where the custom cut-out that houses the third brake light is especially noticeable thanks to custom pinstriping. And while a 1940s classic is usually known for chrome, the updated style means the polished Billet Specialties alloys and their sporty stance are true stand-outs.
Just like the exterior, the interior has touches of classic style, but what will really impress you the most are the upgrades for real comfort. It starts with the seats. This is a modern setup that includes two well-bolstered buckets up front. Not only is the tweed cloth nice to have on a convertible, but it's also part of a fully-coordinated look with the dash, carpeting, and custom door panels. There's plenty of convenience with power windows, power tops, and power front seats. And you also have a modern AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and provisions for air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) This is also built to be a better driver with a banjo-style sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and crisp Classic Instruments gauges with a large speedo and tach.
The engine bay is dressed nicely with the bold yellow on the inner walls and plenty of polish in the middle. But the flash doesn't take away from the substance of fitting one of the largest motors possible in there. This is a 502 cubic-inch big block V8, and it's topped with two Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors. And there are nice supporting pieces, too, like the aluminum radiator, a separate trans cooler, and the battery moved to the trunk for better weight distribution. It is a seriously powerful package, and so they updated it with the right pieces, like a Camaro front end and traction bars in the rear. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and front discs make this big block dual-quad drop-top an easy cruiser.
This is the kind of custom that has something unique to see from every angle. It's a full build for power, comfort, and distinction. So if you love a unique street machine, call today!
