For Sale: 1946 Chevrolet Coupe in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Kansas City is proud to present this beautiful, fully customized award winning 1946 Chevrolet Coupe. This 1946 Chevy Coupe under went a complete rebuilt of the entire car and this coupe was built to be driven. The motor is a Chevy small block 400, 383 Stroker motor and the heads are ported. The transmission is a turbo 350 built for the motor. The owner states that the body was removed from the frame, stripped down to bare metal along with the frame. The frame was completely rebuilt and painted along with an independent front end by Fat Man. The body under went a total rebuild. When you park the car next to a stock body you will really see all the subtle changes, along with the very noticeable changes. The top was chopped 3". The windshield and back glass are recessed into the body just like modern windshields and even the wing windows are functional. It has power windows and door openers which you will not find on just any 46 Chevrolet Coupe allowing you to open doors from the key fob. The top of hood of the car was removed for a new sheet metal top. That was done instead of welding the center hood seam which could cause warping and possibly rust later in life. The new hood skin was cut out and a slight brake was made in a sheet metal brake to form the hood peek. Then it was oxy acetylene welded and hammer welding, old school. The hood nose is laid back 2.5" from stock. Until you see it setting next to another car you will not notice it because it is so subtle. The hood scoops were made using a �" steel rod and fully welding both sides of the rod in to place. The rain drip rails were removed and a �" steel rod was welding on both sides and molded into place. The belt line below the back glass going around to each back window to help break up the body and create a better body line. This is a subtle but dramatic change that really enhances the appearance of the Coupe. The final paint and body work was performed by the famed builder and painter Rodger Ward in Ottawa Kansas at Bad Paint Company who has had several magazine cars over the years.This stunning Coupe also has frenched head lights, filled door handles, frenched taillights, and a smoothed bumper and grill. The wheels are Torque Thruster wheels. 17" up front and 18" on back. The rear end is Posi-trac with 3:23 gearing. Holley Sniper fuel injection has also been recently added. The radiator was replaced with a new aluminum radiator with electric fans. Evans High performance coolant was also used over standard coolant. Front disc brakes have also been installed and the brake lines were replaced with new ones.Some additional features of this stunning 1946 Chevrolet Coupe include A/C, AM/FM radio, GPS, Power Steering, Power locks and also keyless entry.
