For Sale: 1946 Ford Deluxe in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1946 Ford Deluxe Coupe is a thoughtful custom build that includes a stylish color combo, a comfy leather interior, an upgraded suspension, an overdrive transmission, and fuel-injected LT1 V8 power. It makes for the kind of classic you're going to want to drive everywhere because it's not only comfortable, but it really knows how to grab attention.


The Light Ivory paint has the look of porcelain, and that hind of preciousness is fitting for a car nicknamed Queenie. There has been nearly $25k invested in this car since 2015. It wasn't about completing this custom car, but instead, it took an already finished custom and made it even better. So you'll find a detailed build with good panels, nice weather-stripping, and bright chrome. And this one appreciates the little things. For example, the grille is correctly detailed in red, but they also added red full-length trim and rear pinstriping for a uniform total package. And those 15-inch Center Line wheels have been painted to match the body, so people may just notice the style before they notice the substance of just how extra meaty the rear tires are. Blue-dot taillights, tinted windows, wide exhaust tips are all part of a well-done package that show off just the right amount of street machine style.


The cream interior continues the white color theme. This upgrade adds extra comfort but doesn't lose the vintage look. For example, you have classic-style bench seats, but they are now covered in supple leather. And the side panels are even done to match. Chrome accents, quality carpeting, a taut headliner, and a smooth color-matched dash all make for an inviting feeling inside. This also has plenty of upgrades like power windows, a cup holder center console, upgraded speakers w/subwoofer, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel on a tilt column. You also have provisions for an AM/FM/CD stereo w/USB and R134a air conditioning - they will currently need servicing to full function again.


The engine bay continues the car's thoughtful style. The color-matched engine covers subtly announce you have Corvette power under the hood. Plus, the intake and valve covers have the same chrome with red streaks as the exterior brightwork. It's all easy to see because the mirror-like firewall doubles the shine of all the polished components. As the engine cover suggests, this classic Ford now has a 5.7-liter Chevrolet LT1 V8. The fuel injection means this motor fires up eagerly, and the headers give added power and a subtly sweet tune to the dual exhaust. The way this one runs and sounds makes you feel like it can be an all-day cruiser. That's why you also have good driver features like a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and an aluminum radiator to help keep it all cool. You also have traction bars in the rear, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front. And the upgraded Mustang II-style front end was just installed in 2020.


It all makes an impressive total package that combines power, comfort, and vintage appeal. Don't miss this deal, call today!
