1946 Ford Super Deluxe
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This is a beautiful, professionally restored '46 Ford Super Deluxe convertible that runs and drives even better than it looks. You can take this car across town or across the country, safely, reliably, and with a ton of style. It won't leave you stranded every 4th time you drive it wondering "What now?" like many lesser built rods.
It features a healthy 383 small block Chevrolet V8, aluminum and chrome everywhere, 3 speed automatic, Ford 9-inch rear, Heidt's rack and pinion front end, tubular A-arms, 4 corner adjustable coilovers, 4 wheel disc brakes, power steering, tilt wheel, power brakes, cold Vintage AC, working cruise control, and dual power seats. All features work well, including lights, wipers, horn, etc, so you won't be chasing annoying gremlins all the time, either. The car drives comfortably like a much newer vehicle given all of these modern upgrades. Cruise it at 75 mph all day long.
Body and frame are super solid, with no rust or corrosion. Beautiful candy blue metallic paint draws constant attention everywhere it goes. All stainless, chrome, and glass are in great condition. Those who know what they are looking at will also realize the top has been chopped 2-3" to give it a more aggressive and pleasing stance. It rides on 15" chrome Torque Thrusts with Firestone Firehawk 275s and 215s back to front. No the tires do not rub!
Inside, gray leather covers all the seats and door panels, and the dash is simply a work of art, with a full complement of gauges (and yes, all of those work, too). A leather banjo stainless wheel completes the look, and the manual top is a peppery gray cloth with rear glass window.
Please search for yourself (as I did), but prices for the 46 to 48 Super Deluxe convertibles range from $27k for mediocre originals to $169k for the most over-the-top builds. With all that this car has to offer in terms of looks, build quality, upgrades, and functionality, it still sits near the bottom of that range in price, so please keep that in mind. No it is not quite perfect, with only minor nitpicks here or there, just like any custom build has, no matter how much is spent. But at this price you'll have nothing to complain about.
Asking $43,500 obo.
