This 1946 Ford Super Deluxe convertible coupe is the total package. It's got a smart-running flathead, which is one of our all-time favorite engines, an awesome color combination, and it's loaded with accessories for a fully-dressed look. If you want an old car that can do it all, it's hard to go wrong with a V8 Ford.

Cars of the 1940s seem to wear dark colors better than anything else, and the lovely fat-fendered Ford bodywork looks sporty, even dressed in Burgundy formalwear like this. The look should be familiar to us all, as it was one of the most popular cars of the immediate post-war period, continuing the face lifted 1942 model look. Restored several years ago, there are some imperfections and a few signs of use here and there, but certainly nothing to be ashamed of and there's absolutely no denying the appeal of this car. A professional polish would probably bring it up a few points and with the values on these cars steadily ratcheting up, that's a worthy investment. But even as it sits, it's a fantastic-looking machine with a dashing profile and great fit to the bodywork, suggesting that the restoration was of a uniformly high quality when it was completed. Accessories include a front grille guard, fog lamps, twin spotlights, and fender skirts, which were all quite popular back in the '40s. Much of the trim is stainless, so it'll be easy to maintain and the chrome all looks bright and clear, including the grille with its contrasting red pinstripes.

The two-tone tan interior was correctly restored with plain seating surfaces and the right grain on the high-quality vinyl. Ford was fond of putting rubber mats up front for the driver and carpets in back for passengers, and that's correct even in a convertible, and the door panels wear matching kick panels for protection. The woodgrained dash and window moldings are actually painted steel and the illusion is quite convincing, with a light color that looks great in the open Ford. The symmetrical instrument panel puts a full array of gauges ahead of the driver, plus a big speedometer and yes, those bright numerals are correct, if a bit unorthodox for the period. An original AM radio lives in the center, but it's just for show, and the heat/defrost unit is original as well. The tan convertible top is in good shape and trimmed with matching red piping, and the trunk is properly finished with a rubber mat and full-sized spare.

The 239 cubic inch Ford flathead V8 is a joy to drive under any conditions, with a bubbly attitude and plenty of torque to make it feel agile in traffic. This one is set up all-stock, and that's a correct Stromberg 97 carburetor living under the stock oil-bath air cleaner. Reproduction hoses, a proper generator, and the tall radiator add to the vintage look, giving us a car that looks like it might have in the early '50s when the hot-rod craze was in high gear. The 3-speed manual transmission slips through the gears without fussing and it cruises happily at modern highway speeds without complaint. It's a little dirty underneath but that only means it's been driven like it should be and you'll never get tired of the friendly burble from the exhaust system. Reproduction 6.50-16 Ford-script whitewalls on steel wheels with beauty rings and hubcaps complete the period presentation.

These are simply great cars and with a few choice upgrades and a top that goes down, this '46 ragtop will make you smile every time you fire it up. Call today!

General Terms

Terms & Conditions

We recognize the need for complete transparency when buying/selling vehicles on eBay. That said, we did not build, modify, or have the luxury of personal ownership that would give us the advantage of knowing all unknown aspects of each vehicle. Transparency is king and we're happy to try and answer ALL questions our customers might have prior to purchasing. Additionally, we welcome and encourage independent inspections (see Inspection statement below).

FEES: A documentation fee of $299 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale. Sale price does not include any Title, License, Registration, State or Local Taxes or Processing Fees. We recommend you familiarize yourself with your individual state's taxes, transfer, or additional fees.

AVAILABILITY: Please inquire prior to purchase to assure any advertised vehicle is not already sold. We advertise across multiple platforms where a vehicle can sell in a moment's notice. Vehicles may be sold prior to eBay listing end, and we reserve the right to end listings early or to cancel bids/offers solely at our discretion and shall not be held liable for any such cancellation.

CONTACT: Note that you may hear from us after to the sale, but if you are a winning bidder, click a Buy-It-Now, or we accept your eBay Offer, it is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours.

INSPECTION: VERY IMPORTANT. If a buyer chooses to buy sight unseen (many of our buyers choose this option) the buyer accepts the vehicle AS-IS and understands we cannot address concerns post sale. For this reason, it's important all concerns are addressed prior to purchase. We make every effort to present accurate and reliable information, but use of this information is voluntary, and should only be deemed reliable after an independent review of its accuracy, completeness, and timeliness. It is the sole responsibility of the customer/buyer to verify the existence of options, accessories and the vehicle condition before time of sale.

PAYMENT: We require a non-refundable $500 deposit within 48 hours of winning or commitment to purchase. Full payment is required within 7 days of offer acceptance unless other arrangements are agreed to in writing. If deposit and/or full payment are not provided within said timeframe, all vehicles will be relisted and transaction will be considered void. For balance of payment we will accept bank wire transfer (preferred), cashier's check, or personal check (vehicle shipment will be delayed until check clears).We also offer vehicle financing, please inquire for details prior to making bids/offers. SHIPPING: We have access to a network of private and commercial carriers. Most of them can deliver the vehicle to your driveway and upon your schedule. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody. Buyers are welcomed to trailer vehicles home and we are happy to have everything ready to see you off with your new vehicle.

DRIVE IT HOME: If you plan to buy and drive home, please keep some things in mind. Anything is possible when it comes to a vehicle, especially a classic or antique one. We recommend transporting all vehicles to your home first, then driving it locally. Get to know the vehicle and its tendencies before embarking on a long-distance trip. If you choose to drive your new vehicle home, buyer accepts all responsibility as we are unable to control what may take place once it leaves our facility.

DOCUMENTS & VEHICLE TITLE: All purchase documents are sent immediately upon purchase. To avoid delays, we recommend returning any required documents within 24 hours of receipt. Please allow up to 30 days for vehicle titles. Usually titles are available sooner, we ask for the extra time in the event there are unforeseen circumstances.

VIN VERIFICATION: We photograph the primary VIN location of every vehicle and make sure that VIN exactly matches the vehicle's current title. Buyer agrees to hold seller harmless from any disputes arising from other hidden or secondary VINs present on the vehicle as seller only verifies the primary VIN location. If needed, it is the buyer's sole responsibility to verify secondary VIN locations their specific state may inspect, prior to purchase.

MILEAGES: Occasionally our vehicles may be driven or simply moved around our facilities. Slight differences may occur so we recommend you confirm actual and current miles prior to purchase.

CONDITION: We cover the obvious and do our best to describe our vehicles in detail. Even so, please have a transparent conversation with us before purchasing. Do be aware that all pre-owned vehicles, regardless of age, mileage, or manufacturer are subject to cosmetic wear and mechanical failure. Finally, be advised that although our sales associates are here to assist you with your purchase, they are not trained or certified vehicle inspectors.

AS-IS: All vehicles are sold "AS IS" and with no warranties expressed or implied. If you choose to waive inspection, do plan to have a detailed and transparent conversation with us regarding the vehicle's condition. Ask the hard questions up front. Please just call us, we are here to help and welcome all your questions!

DISCLAIMER: This site and all advertising information may be updated without notice whenever new information is obtained and may contain mistakes and inaccuracies. Information is provided to the best of our knowledge and we make no warranty or representation regarding the accuracy, truth, or reliability of such information. We cannot be responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by the consignor/seller of the vehicle. We strive to perform extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible that there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent. All vehicles are sold AS-IS with no warranties expressed or implied.

Sales tax, title, license fee, registration fee, dealer documentary fee, finance charges, emission testing fees, and compliance fees are additional to the advertised price. Vehicle is listed locally, we reserve the right to end the auction at any time.
