1941 Chevrolet Pick-Up Truck

Had to get my Jeep smogged last week, and while I was there, I spotted this 1941 Chevy Pick-Up truck in the lot.

REALLY sweet! The paint was the best I've seen in years, and EVERY nut and bolt was either chromed, or polished stainless.

The guys at the shop said it had a 350 in it with a Turbo-Hydramatic.


  1. Yeah, it was really nice. I haven't seen bodywork and paint that nice in years. The thing was just absolutely straight and shiny.

    You can see the reflection of the little chrome step on the running board in the door, and when you walked up to the truck, it was like looking into a red-tinted mirror.

    Just beautiful!

    The interior was also extremely well done. Very simple, just the instrument cluster in the middle of the dash, some nice bucket seats, and a floor shifter.

  2. I LOVE it! Looks like vintage license plates from the '40s (yes, I remember them).
