Description:

Do you ever crave simplicity? Do you look under the hood of your modern car and remember when you could keep anything running with a screwdriver and a crescent wrench? Then take a look at this handsome 1941 Chevrolet pickup, which has a bit of the new mixed in with a lot of the old, making for one delightful old pickup that does everything right. Admittedly the blue metallic paint isn''t quite 1941, but combined with the black fenders and completely unaltered body, it looks suitably old-school. The pre-war trucks have a pleasing rounded shape with faired-in headlights that were all the rage back then. It doesn''t look as though this truck was one of those you see in calendars with trees growing through their engine bays, but rather a solid, complete truck that got a thorough makeover just a few years ago. The body is all steel save for the rear fenders, and finish quality is impressive enough to justify the price. All the chrome was faithfully retained to keep it looking stock, and the big shiny grille makes for an imposing sight running down the road. Matching chrome bumpers, neat inserts in the sides of the hood, and those cool square taillights are all original design cues that still look great today. The bed has been restored with a new wood floor that is so pretty you''ll hesitate to haul stuff with it, but it''s hard to beat the warmth of real wood. The interior will transport you back to 1941, and as I said, if that''s what you''re looking for, this truck nails it. Brown leatherette on a wide bench seat, a big hard rubber steering wheel attached to unassisted steering, and a no-nonsense dashboard that''s painted a neutral gray that works with any body color are all part of the truck''s charm. No resto-mod tricks here, just simplicity and attention to detail. The gauges are in excellent condition with beautiful art-deco numbers, and the waterfall of trim in the center of the dash echoes the look of the grilles up front. A rubber mat was intended for guys who actually worked and got dirty doing it, so this pickup remains a low-maintenance proposition. There''s not even a radio, but the sound of this pickup going about its business is so charming that you probably won''t even notice, and there is an accessory Arvin heater stashed underneath the dash. It would be easy to under-estimate the venerable Chevy "stovebolt" six and want a small block V8 under the hood just like all the other garden-variety trucks, but before you decide, please come drive this one. The 235 cubic inch six is sewing-machine smooth and has a great grumbly exhaust note that you''ll surely enjoy. It''s also torquey and doesn''t mind revving a bit, all the while delivering decent fuel economy. It''s wearing Chevy Orange paint on the block and monochromatic gray almost everywhere else, so it''s not exactly original, but the feel is old-fashioned and you''ll find that maintenance is simple once again. Linked to a 3-speed manual and highway-friendly 3.42 gears, it''s much happier in today''s traffic and on the highway. Underneath it''s in good order with the only notable modification being a custom dual exhaust system and those chrome wire wheels with 205/75/15 Uniroyal radials. Perhaps it''s time to embrace the old ways once again. When all the trucks are modified, it''s the stock ones that tend to stand out. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
