Your first impression of this 1941 Chevrolet Pickup is just a cool fun true vintage stake-side bed pickup
But when was the last time you saw a classic commercial machine with V8 power, an upgraded suspension, power windows, cold-blowing A/C, and more? It all means this flatbed is one of the most interesting comfortable cruisers around.
1941 was a debut year for a new style, and these always get extra attention because of their rarity. It may have been around for about seven years, but most of that was diverted for WWII production. And now this has been given the right investments to be a showpiece without losing its heritage. For example, the maroon paint has the right tone for a 1940s machine, but it has the good gloss of a more recent professional respray. And painting the grille was a pretty cool touch. It seems to suggest the contemporary updated styling just as much as you might think that it was to remind you that war rationing started to take away chrome. Two-piece wheel trim, clean body lines, and wood side barrels are all part of this very detailed style. As good as this looks, the whole appearance can still get to work. After all, the real wood flatbed looks great from the outside, and there’s plenty of space to strap down whatever you want. So no matter if you want to put your company’s logo on the side, or just want a showpiece to bring your motorcycle, this is your best way to grab some attention.
The interior keeps the right vintage design touches, but it pulls you generations ahead when it comes to amenities. It starts with seating. Gone is the bouncy flat bench, and in its place is a bucket seat setup from a much later GM truck. You have the best features for cruising like power windows, a fold-down center seat armrest, an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input, and cold-blowing air conditioning. The Billet Specialties sports steering wheel is on a tilt column for added comfort and to give you a good view of the VDO readouts.
Under the hood is another big deviation from the past. This one shows off its 350 cubic-inch V8 proudly with bright and tidy components. It makes it easy to spot desirable pieces like the Weber four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, an HEI distributor, and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It’s built to be an all-around solid cruiser, and so you have a Corvette-style independent front end, coilovers helping out the rear leaf springs, power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission.
