For Sale: 1946 Ford Pickup in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1946 Ford Pickup Rat Rod has its own version of cool. After all, the body shows off the ultimate level of patina. And the stance and the V8 growl are instant indicators that this is no farm truck.

There is a worn-in style here, but you can tell it really took extra thought and effort. For example, the full package has the look of a well-earned patina. While that's a great look on a pickup, this one takes it a step further and seals in the style with a clearcoat. And the low and intimidating stance is from taking time to channel the cab and bed over the frame. The deeply dipping grille, riveted cab corner bottoms, weld-style racing wheels, rolled rear pan, and raised bed with reclaimed wood are all about creating a pure street machine kind of style.

The interior is more pure rat rod style. So the luxuries you get are usually just a coincidence, like how a comfy and well-bolstered leather bench seat fits inside. The right pieces are all added with a thick-grip sports steering wheel, the right upgraded gauges, and a shifter tall enough to make you feel like the rat fink. And it will be fun to see who will spot the tach mounted on the roof.

The engine bay is on display for everyone to see, and so it makes sure to have all the right style. That means cool details like Mickey Thompson valve covers and patina on the flame-kissed air grabber. And as you dig a little deeper, you'll see quite a solid powerhouse. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and a set of long tube headers feeding into a rumbling dual exhaust. A rat rod loves to look like it's cobbled together from when a hot rod shop uses its best leftovers to create a whole new machine. But if you look closer at this one, you can see secretly rewarding investments. This includes an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, modern sport tires, a three-speed automatic transmission, and front disc brakes. It makes for a solid street machine that's far more comfortable to drive than many people might think.

This is a cool rat rod pickup with plenty of secretly rewarding style. So if you love a patina street machine, you know you need to call today!
