Don't.

Get an amp with good overdrive, and maybe use a pedal to boost it.


No.

^ If you buy a $2000 fender head and run a disto pedal through I will be very disappointed

The fender supersonic is really nice. All tube, very good cleans, and a pretty good amp overdrive channel that you can use in conjunction with pedals.

Why does it have to be a Fender?

Horlicks posted the right amp for what you're looking for.

Rockerverb 50, fender cleans, orange overdrive

Just to re-iterate the fact that you should get this, I'll quote it.

what type of music will you be playing? if it's mainly cleans, with only the odd overdriven moment, then a fender head with a pedal might be a good idea.

but if you're mainly playing distortion, i agree with the others, I think you're going about this ass-backwards... your amp should be aimed at the main tone you need, in my opinion (unless, i guess, you play in a covers band which plays a little of everything...)...

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

A bassman. 1964 (some of the early 65's are ok too) or older if you don't want to do some rewiring. If you don't mind a bit of rewiring then one of the blackface bassman amps with the ab165 layout would be ok.

What do you think of a bassman silverface with some kind of pedal in front?

I think it would be nicer to all of us if you weren't so condescending. It isn't very becoming. Just get a Fender Bassman with an OD...

Not without some rewiring. The later the silverface the worse they got. The very 1st silverface bassman amps were the same as the very last blackface amps except they had caps on the output tubes that you need to clip out. Later silverface amps (AA371) got a lot worse. If you do get a silverface bassman make sure it's the ab165 circut and then be sure you know how to change the bias and negative feedback back to blackface specs. If you don't feel like you can do that then don't go silverface.

And for what it's worth, My bassman was a 1966 which is kind of a hybrid between silverface and blackface. Somebody had tried to convert it to blackface specs and did it wrong. I changed it back to stock, then I later changed it to a hybrid of the AA864 and ab165. Finaly I gave in and fully converted it to AA864 specs. It sound the best now that it's at the true AA864 layout

It's a shame, as they are quite a bit cheaper. I'll look into how much time it would take to learn to mod one. Thanks!

i'm not too well up on vintage fenders, but i'm guessing a bassman with od would be good.

out of the more modern fenders, the supersonic is pretty good if (as you say) you need cleans a lot, as you can get both a tweed and blackface-style clean out of it, so it's pretty versatile if you need cleans a lot. And the overdrive channel isn't bad as long as you don't need it to get too heavy.
