1946 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe Additional Info:

2nd owner, purchased in 1965. Originally a 6 cyl. car, currently has most of a 59A flat head V8. Made a mistake and sold the intake, distributor and generator 45 years ago because I always planned to rebuilt the car back to original. V8 was an oval track race motor from the 50's with aluminum heads, dome pistons, steel headers, mushroom lifter cam but I'm no longer sure of the borer and stroke. Motor ran nicely with 2-97 Strombergs which were sold with the intake. Car was parked 47 years ago when I got married with 30,473 original miles. Car is radio and heater delete which was never driven in cold weather, snow or salt. I had always planned on restoring the car back to original with the 6 cyl engine and accessories, but time passes quickly and I need restoring more than the car does today. Car is all Henry Ford steel, all 4 fenders were dented when I got the car from a then older driver with 7' garage doors. Lacquer paint on the repaired fenders has long ago peeled, and although under a roof, surface rust on paint and chrome from years of hot/cold and condensation have taken there toll. Car is still solid with only one rust through hole under the rear seat from a mouse nest that held moisture and the headliner has a hole from a mouse. 1 dent from a 2X6 in L. front fender, as seen in photo, and a small dent in the car roof from a tree limb on the lean-to roof. 2 pieces of stainless are dented and one parking light lens is broken, but factory original parts are included. A few extra holes from radio aerial, V8 motor mounts and a small heater will have to be repaired if going back to original. Buy it Now price will include all the removed original parts: 6 cyl engine, transmission and radiator, plus the original wheels, etc. OBO will be for car as pictured with cosmetic parts. Car needs total restoration, but should be an easy project for someone with the desire and time. Car rolls and must be picked up in Eau Claire, Michigan.
