The 1946 Ford pickup will always get respect in the classic truck market because this is some of the first steel used for civilian production after WWII. And this one lets you show it off easier with upgrades to the V8 power, suspension, and interior. So it's the true classic with a comfy style.

The design of this pickup was done before WWII, but since that debuted in 1942, hardly anyone got to see it. So these trucks have a uniquely short run considering the F-Series would be in production before the end of 1947. And the post-war period means you could now get added flair with details like the brightwork trim grille and hood. Not only does this one have history, but it's also upgraded to be fun in modern times. There are cruiser-ready features like a custom rear pan with a frenched license plate, bright dual exhaust tips, hot rod style side mirrors, and plenty of attractive real wood in the truck bed where you now also have the fuel filler cap (signaling the tank is no longer in the cab.) And we especially love the color-matched wire wheels that are a symbol of a sporty car no matter if it's the 1940s or 2022. You may want to update/personalize the finish or other details later down the road, but from day one, you'll love how this unique truck is a true driver.

The interior is distinct and attractive. After all, those who know 1940s pickups instantly recognize that the contoured and soft seat is far nicer than the flat bench you got from the factory. Diamond pattern seat inserts, matching door panels, and plush carpeting make it all inviting. Just like the exterior, there is room for upgrades. So you may want to update the gauges, add a stereo to the glovebox, or another personalization. But when you grip the Lecarra sports steering wheel, adjust the tilt column, and look out through the two-piece windshield, you get a unique feeling of classic style with modern driving convenience.

While you could get the flathead V8 in 1946, this now has a younger Ford legend in the engine bay. This is the 351 cubic-inch small block. It also has the right upgrades like a Weber four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, polished Edelbrock valve covers, and dual exhaust. It's a tidy motor that fires up readily with a feeling like this truck wants to hit the road. And that's part of its solid cruiser attitude. So is the upgraded independent front suspension, three-speed automatic transmission, and power brakes with front discs.

This is a cool and significant pickup that has upgraded to be a good driver today. Don't let something so distinct slip away, call today!!!
