For Sale: 1946 Ford Business Coupe in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

With flaming red paint, a premium A/C interior, an overdrive transmission, and dual-quad V8 power, this 1949 Ford Business Coupe makes for an all-around fun custom.


The red on this coupe is a modern application with a glossy finish that lets the sunlight roll over the classic curvaceous body. Plus, the custom pinstriping is also done in red, so it rewards those who pay extra attention to this coupe with an artful style all around the car. And detail lovers will pick up on how the sides have a ghost flame kind of style. They are part of what makes this a truly unique street machine custom. You also have a deleted front bumper, tinted windows, and deleted badging. And we particularly love how there is the classic two-piece wheel cover setup, but now with a larger rear set to help emphasize the aggressive forward-leaning stance. And the way this sleeker coupe still keeps its classic full-length trim lets it show off the good sheet metal and also gives it the right touch of vintage cool.


The interior updates you to a true cruiser experience. The headliner, carpeting, and custom door panels are all done in a deep black that has a uniform style. The bucket seats are modern units with plenty of modern bolstering for all-day comfort. You also have nice upgrades like cold-blowing air conditioning, an armrest center console with cup holders, and cruise control. The sport steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view of the updated gauge package with temp, oil, and tach.


These business coupes were famous for V8 power, and they were also famous for getting plenty of upgrades to be moonshine runners. So this one keeps that tradition alive with a 350 cubic-inch crate motor with a cool set of dual Weber four-barrel carburetors on top. This also has upgrades like an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock finned valve covers, and headers. Plus, the upgraded cam makes for nice power and a sweet tune to the dual exhaust. This is a strong runner that was built to be a solid cruiser. So you have extras that you don't always find elsewhere like a Northern aluminum radiator to help keep it running cool. And there's a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive. And there's also a Mustang II-style front end, power steering, and power brakes with front discs for easy driving near or far.


When a car looks this vibrant, feels this comfortable, and drives so well, you know it's a total package you need to have in your garage. Call today!!!
