This 1946 Ford pickup has a clean and authentic style everywhere from the flathead V8 power to the bed-mounted spare tire. It's part of a true vintage style that also combines with the right upgrades to give you a better cruiser that also never loses the nostalgic feeling.
The maroon paint sets the right tone for this truck. It's a later clearcoat application in the kind of color that looks right for the 1940s while still having an appeal in modern times. We also like how the body is .....
complete and the finish is glossy, but it never loses that hard-working appearance or impression. There is some chic in its honesty. It has a well-coordinated total color package. The black bumpers go with the full running boards, wheels, and bed-mounted spare tire. And the grille, headlight surround, and trim on the hood are done in contrasting cream to be distinctly bright without making this honest truck look too flashy. It makes for the kind of classic you can appreciate if you really like classic details. It's seen right down to the two-piece windshield, real wood bed floor, and even extra lumber used for side rails. But this true classic also likes to be a cruiser, and so there are a few subtle indicators, like the polished dual exhaust tips and blue-dot tail lights.
The interior keeps the simple and classic feeling going. You get a tall airy cab, long bench seat, and a large steering dual-spoke wheel with that ideal classic grip. The clean/smooth maroon interior paint and metallic shifter ball give you a touch of flair, but the update that really matters most is the addition of a crisp and comprehensive Dolphin gauge package.
Under the hood is proper flathead V8 power. The 239 cubic-inch motor has quite a tidy style that lets you see details like the oil bath air cleaner and 6V system. It also makes it easier to spot some nice features, like the set of Edelbrock finned heads. This fires up with the eagerness of a well-maintained package, and the feeling on the road is classically rugged. And the three-speed manual transmission is great for giving you confident control. This even has front disc brakes to make driving a bit more enjoyable.
We don't see too many pre F-Series trucks these days, and so a fun classic like this feels irresistible when you love honesty. Call today!!!
