One look at a 1946 Ford coupe like this, and you can't help but feel patriotic. After all, this was the first full production year after WWII, and an eager nation was ready to get their hands on a vehicle that would once again celebrate the open road. This flathead V8 coupe perfectly represents this optimistic time in America.
The red paint is a great representation of how much pride this car inspired when new. There is the perfect amount of luster here that makes it look nearly factory fresh without giving it an overzealous clearcoat finish. It's an honesty that gives this '46 Ford the kind of presence that radiates whether it's parked in the sunlight of the car show lawn or the neon of your favorite car hop. The chrome bumpers and grille have a mirror-like quality that signal a recent investment. The bright trim that accents the curvaceous body also looks so pristine that it must have had some recent work, too. It's all finished off with the proper whitewall tires and two-piece Ford wheels w/pinstriping.
Just like the exterior, you can tell there was an investment inside in keeping this coupe feeling like a time warp. The gray cloth on the seats gives you some added comfort, and they coordinate nicely with the door panels and headliner. While this was based on a pre-war design, Ford was still leading in interior style. So you'll slip behind the original-style two-spoke wheel and gaze over the fashionable and symmetrical dashboard that's a perfect piece of art deco.
The 239 cubic-inch flathead V8 really needs no introduction, and you'll be quite happy to know that this coupe originally came with the V8 upgrade. On the road it provides a wonderful punch and a great soundtrack. The engine bay is nicely detailed, and you might notice the nice upgrades such as the alternator, 12-volt power, and electric fan. The three-speed manual transmission shifts easily, and provides good power for getting to the car shows with ease.
