1946 Ford Super Deluxe 2-door sedan.  This is a clean, comfortable car.  The body is in excellent condition.  It is all steel with no rust or dents, and doors fit well and close nicely like a new luxury car.  The color is a burgundy that shows more red in bright sun.  The paint is excellent from 10 feet; from a closer distance a few chips and scratches can be seen as shown in the pictures near fenders or doors.  Chrome is clean and shiny.  The upholstery is thicker, stronger and plusher than the original upholstery.  There are no worn spots, stains or faded areas, and  no musty “old car” aroma. The engine is a standard Ford six-cylinder which starts quickly and runs smoothly; however, one can detect the need for some exhaust pipe work.  The car is a good driver and I have used it for that purpose; especially appreciating the aftermarket turn signals. The brake master cylinder and other parts were recently replaced to resolve a spongy brake pedal.    The brake system is now solid and quickly stops the car. The fuel pump, starter, and distributor were replaced to help with the engine starting and smoothness.  The transmission and motor mounts were also replaced.  The tires have good tread and have the Ford Motor Co. logo on the white wall that I wanted to save. The tires were unmounted to confirm good condition and were reinstalled with new tubes and balanced.    I have owned this car for about 5 years and most of my time associated with it has involved cleaning, minor titivation, and short drives of about 15 to20 miles to run errands. The car has been fun to tinker with and drive, and have enjoyed the compliments I received every time the car was out; however I am older than the car and it is time for me to part with it.  This is a great driver, a fun car to take to local shows, and is  a solid platform for addition of the power plant of your choice.
