While the 40's Chevrolets still had remnants of the previous
decades look there were some redesigns that started to be
incorporated like the single piece grill and slightly more
incorporated fenders which would continue until finally reaching
the more box style of vehicle in the 50s. Due to the war this look
was prevalent throughout the 40's as the cars weren't really
redesigned again until 49/50. This cool '41 has a great look and is
done in the restomod, street rod style. The body has been
completely shaved of the exterior hardware giving it a nice clean
look. It also has been modified with a frenched license plate and
frenched power antenna. Since the door handles have been shaved off
electric poppers were added to gain access to the interior. It is
painted in a slick Yellow paint which has a really nice finish. The
original bumpers have been removed and custom built Bowtie bumpers
added in their place. The rear bumper is removable and when out of
place exposes a trailer hitch should you want to combine this
street rod with a small trailer for travel or car show gear. The
front grill utilizes the original outside shape but is a custom
billet grill which looks great. All of the glass is tinted and on
the front windshield billet electric wipers were added. In the back
windshield a 3rd taillight was installed which is a nice addition
to these street rods and greatly improves visibility. The car has a
great stance and rides on a set of custom wheels with a wide tire
in the back.
Getting the car rolling is a 305 V8 motor that is nicely built up
with Edelbrock valve covers, billet air cleaner, spark plug wire
looms, and all billet brackets. The firewall is painted to match
the body and all the hoses/brake booster are mounted on brushed
aluminum sections. The motor is backed by a Turbo 400 automatic
transmission that shifts well with no issues and moves power to the
10 bolt posi rear end. Up front the car has a disc brake conversion
and all are power assisted. It also has power steering making it a
very comfortable car to drive around. It has parallel leaf spring
suspension and a later model Camaro front clip. It has dual exhaust
with Flowmaster mufflers. There is a power disconnect switch to
help keep the battery from being drained in between drives.
The interior is done in a Gray cloth that is in good condition. It
has dual bucket seats up front separated by a custom center
console. The door panels feature custom billet window/door cranks
and an arm rest. The dash has the original style layout but has
been upgraded with aftermarket white faced VDO gauges. A custom
under dash section was built to house the Sony AM/FM/CD/USB stereo
with remote as well as mount the Vintage AC system. In front of the
driver is a tilt column and topped with a custom steering wheel.
The trunk is all carpeted and is where you would fill it with gas
and also access the relocated battery. This car also has the
classic OOGA horn.
This cool street rod runs great and is a good driver. It was set up
to look good rolling down the road and be driven comfortably along
