1946 Ford V8 Coupe Project showing 74,390 miles offered by Gas Monkey Garage!
This rare 1946 Ford Coupe has survived in largely original condition with the exception of a 289 V8 that replaced the original 239 Flathead V8.

The 1946 Ford was the first Post War Model Ford had produced for the civilian population. Ford had redesigned the 1941 model in anticipation of the changing times surrounding WWII and with very few 1942 Civilian Models produced, the factory was ordered to enter into Military production. After the War, the 1941/1942 model received additional chrome trim nearly everywhere, widow surrounds, side body, grill, bumpers etc. and was released as the 1946 Ford V8 Coupe you see here complete with updated interior finishes that included the killer Art Deco dash trim!

This is a nice, fairly solid example that has most of the exterior trim present and is in good usable condition (see all pics). The body is remarkably straight with very few and minor nicks and dings. The original finish has surrendered long ago to the kick ass patina you see here. It would look great as is or make for an easy restoration as you can see exactly what you are working with.

Interior photos reveal the fairly original condition with seat, door panels and dash components present making for an easy restoration when you decide to.

Under hood pics show the mostly complete engine compartment with the replacement 289 V8 engine present.

Underside shots reveal a fairly solid original chassis with superficial rust present on most components (see all 100+ pics).

This Rare 1946 Ford V 8 Coupe Project does not run or drive, it will need to be completely inspected to determine completeness or functionality before beginning the restoration or modification process. Every component will need to be evaluated and addressed before any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability (due to our filming schedule we cannot perform any additional work on this car or build it for you) SOLD AS IS/WHERE IS.
If you're looking for a super rare 1946 Ford V8 Coupe Project, you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!
