For Sale: 1941 Ford Pickup in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

1941 was a very good year for the auto industry and it seems like they just couldn't make a bad-looking vehicle that year. This 1941 Ford Pickup takes all the timeless styling cues from the 1940 Ford passenger cars (and you know how awesome those are) and adds a powerful 350 V8 crate engine under the clamshell hood, a capable automatic transmission, choice options, a comfy leather A/C interior, and a practical bed out back to create one of the best-looking pickups of all time.

Is there really any other color choice for one of these trucks other than a dark shade? Whether it's black or dark blue like this one, it's the quintessential shade for a Pre-War hauler like this. Frankly, I prefer blue over black, it helps it stand out from the crowds and just screams 1940s Detroit. It looks so right that you'd almost be crazy to try anything else. At Ford, trucks took the front-end styling of the previous year's passenger car models, so the 1941 pickup is the spitting image of the 1940 Ford Deluxe, V-shaped grille, teardrop headlights, everything. The result is a classic look that remains popular with hobbyists of all ages. If you're thinking those are the cleanest front and rear fenders you've ever seen, then you're on the right track because they're faithful fiberglass reproductions, but other than that the truck is all-steel. The blue paint was applied not long ago, so it shows very little signs of use, with the majority of the imperfections being water spots that could probably be remedied with a comprehensive buff-and-wax. The sheetmetal underneath is all in great shape and wears the blue paint with pride, and we love that there's no airbrush work, no decals, not even a pinstripe to interfere with that beautiful blue canvas. No hack work, no ripples or obvious issues, just a clean old truck that has been properly driven and enjoyed. Lots of the bright trim remains in place too, including that exquisite hood and grille trim that makes the look so familiar. The inside of the bed was painted to match, and it does appear it's actually been used to haul a thing or two since the truck was built, which is great news for those wanting to use this truck, well, as a truck!

At first glance, the gray leather interior might seem stock, but a closer look reveals a more luxurious cabin that you might expect. The original bench was replaced with a sculpted seat covered in a unique, two-tone stitch pattern on the insert to add some interest, a theme that continues on the custom door panels. VDO gauges replace the truck's original hardware and keep a keen eye on the upgraded engine under the hood, while a leather-wrapped LeCarra steering was mounted atop a later-model tilt column and helps get the driver comfortable in the upright cab. The steel dash was painted blue to match the exterior and features switches for the power windows, and an under-dash Vintage Air R134a A/C system that blows ice cold. A custom headliner was expertly installed overhead and includes an integrated Alpine AM/FM/CD player that powers upgraded speaker stashed away behind the bespoke kick panels, plush gray carpets line the floors and come protected with matching floormats, and aftermarket cup holders were installed down on the floor. It's the kind of interior where the more you look at it, the more you like it.

Power comes not from a 95-horsepower flathead but a great-running 350 cubic inch V8 Goodwrench crate engine installed neatly inside the finished engine bay. With plenty of torque and great V8 sounds, it's a great fit for a dialed-in hot rod truck like this, and really pops out from the engine bay with bright valve covers, lots of chrome and billet accessories, and a matching open-element air cleaner. Augmented with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and an MSD coil, it's a great runner and offers decent service access. There's a TH3500 3-speed automatic powering what appears to be an original rear end, while the front suspension featured upgraded A-arms, a sway bar, power front disc brakes, and power rack-and-pinion steering that make this pickup a wonderful driver. It's got a snarky exhaust note thanks to a custom dual exhaust system and painted steel wheel come adorned with Ford hubcaps and carry staggered 175/65/15 and 235/75/14 blackwalls that set a killer stance.

This is a really gorgeous Ford truck, done the way you'd want it, all for a very reasonable price. Given the values on the passenger car versions, it won't be a surprise to see a SOLD sign on this one very soon. Call today!
