Description

Civilian production of Ford resumed in July 1945, with an early start to the 1946 model year filling the public’s thirst for new cars. The 1946 Ford was identical to the 1942 model under the skin, though a heavy new grille with horizontal bars and red accents modernized the car somewhat. The hood was widened by adding a centre strip as well. One notable change was to use the Flathead V8 239 CID engine which, since 1939, had been used in Mercurys and trucks, and capable of 100bhp for the first time. The 1946 Ford was the first model year after WWII and this amazing car was the top of the line. Ford brochures at the time boasted that their 3 speed gearbox shifted effortlessly with the flick of a finger and that the high ratio 2nd gear would get you out in front fast without sacrificing top speed, performance or economy. This example is an older restoration presented in white with black interior, which starts on the button and drives superbly given that the old girl is now 72 years old.
