Ford 5-Window Coupe Coupe 351 Windsor V8 1946

Allmän beskrivning : Description
Fat-fendered Fords don't get much cooler than this 1946 Ford Custom Coupe dressed in beautiful Atomic Orange paint. These cars offer full-sized comfort and distinctive good looks, making them some of the most popular for a full makeover like this. With a powerful Ford 351 V8 underneath, this one also drives as good as it looks and keeps Blue Oval fans happy with its pure Ford DNA.
The first thing you notice about this big, orange Ford is that all the bodywork has been smoothed and trim has been removed to really accentuate the curvaceous lines of the '46 design. The Atomic Orange paint coats the body wonderfully, and it was completed to such a high level that you'll think twice before taking it out on a cloudy day. It's not a perfect show pony though, but there are enough clues to show that some skilled metalworkers were behind the build, and the way it comes together makes other streetrods blush with envy. The effect of that aggressive stance is that the formerly clunky '46 Ford shape looks lean and sleek, with a distinctively muscular look that seems to be going fast sitting still. The '46s were essentially warmed-over '42s (WWII put a stop to new innovation for several years), but with the deleted brightwork, painted front grille, and frenched rocket-style taillights this looks like a brand new model. Running boards were gone by '46, but you can see a hint of them, and the way the body fits together, you'll spend more time looking at details than the overall presentation, because this coupe just looks awesome. The beautiful oval rear window is one of the car's best features, and it ties in neatly with the coupe set-up.
The interior is art rendered in acres of tan leatherette vinyl that looks upscale and inviting. Bucket seats from a late model form the foundation, and the rest of the sculpted interior was formed around them. Supple hides cover the artfully designed door panels, the seats, and the custom center console, and the backseat area is still big enough for three passengers. The original dash was completely filled, smoothed, and then painted to match the exterior, and the underneath Equus auxiliary dials are the only instruments keeping an eye on the motor. A 3-spoke wood-rimmed steering wheel hangs on a painted tilt column, an aftermarket ratchet shifter handles the gears, and nicely stitched carpets would look just as at home in a Lexus as they do here. There's also a giant trunk that's been upholstered to match the interior and looks ready for a road trip.
A Ford 351 cubic inch V8 provides motivation, and there are few better choices for your vintage Ford than the venerable Ford Windsor small block. Clearly built to run, it features an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching intake, dual Flowmaster exhaust, and an Accel ignition system, all dressed up with nice details that make it sparkle. A belt drive system ensures reliability up front and there's a radiator with dual electric fans to keep the whole show nice and cool. The independent front suspension includes power steering, power front disc brakes, and a fat sway bar, while out back a GM 10-bolt rear end handles the torque. A C6 3-speed automatic transmission makes for easy cruising and unbeaten reliability, and it rolls on a set of slick 20-inch Luxx chrome wheels with low-profile rubber that looks right. Professionally built for a figure that was surely two or three times the asking price, this cool Ford will always be the center of attention. Call today!

om Ford
Ford, som grundades 1902, har utan tvekan förändrat historien om bilvärlden mer än någon annan biltillverkare genom att införa de första folkbilen Modell T 1908. De hade producerat mer än 15 miljoner bilar i slutet av produktionen 1927, genom vilket T hade blivit föråldrade.

Ford lanserade den första lågpris V8-motor driven bil 1932. 1932 V8 var en omedelbar hit med överlägsen hantering och prestanda för många betydligt mer expansiva bilar av dagen. Inte undra på 32 V8 Ford har blivit en sådan favorit bland heta rodders runt om i världen med 32 Deuce Coupe som sin ikon.

Under kriget Ford helt stänga civil bilproduktionen att ägna alla sina resurser till de allierade krigsansträngningarna (1942-1945) De används för att bygga B-24 bombplan, flygmotorer, jeepar, M-4 stridsvagnar, militära lastbilar och Bren-gun bärare och mer än 30.000 super laddade Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 motorer till Mosquito och Lancaster bombplan samt P-51 Mustang fighters. Efter kriget Ford bilar i USA blev större och flashier tillsammans med sina konkurrenter. I 60: s Ford var tillbaka i förgrunden igen när man inför deras kommersiella hit Mustang 1964. Mustang var så populär tävlingen var tvungen att följa Fords exempel och ponycar fenomenet tog över USA. Under åren ponnyer växte några muskler tills oljekrisen döda äntligen dödat dem.

På sextiotalet rusade Ford i internationell motorsport scenen med en raseri. Efter misslyckade Ferrari övertagande, då Enzo Ferrari hade klippt affären av med Henry Ford II gör det senare absolut koka av vrede, vände Ford till Lola i Storbritannien för att producera en Ferrari slog långdistans racer efter. Samarbetet mellan Ford och Lola skapade den mäktiga Ford GT40 som absolut slog Ferrari i Le Mans 24 flera gånger.

I Europa införde Ford några av de mest episka race och rallybilar av 60-talet som bygger på ödmjuka familj sedaner; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, och Escort 1600RS med de ikoniska Cosworth BDA motorer.
