Unused Utility: 1941 Chevrolet Hot Rod Pickup – Sold?

by | Aug 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Truckin Tuesday

September 13, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

As car enthusiasts, we all know one of the worst things you can do is not use and drive a classic car or truck enough.  The seller of this 1941 Chevrolet Hot Rod pickup originally listed in August 2021 on Craigslist in nearby Ringoes, New Jersey came to that conclusion and is now offering his truck for $26,500. Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool for a stock example confirms the private seller has their AK series pickup priced just above this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $26,000.

A driver-quality truck featuring a 1980s vintage Chevrolet 30 crate motor and other upgrades, this might be a great pickup you can cruise and show it in as well not being afraid to haul stuff in it with.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“For sale is this black on black 1941 pick-up. The truck is powered by a chevy 350 crate motor from the 1980s. It is mated to a four-speed Muncie transmission and a 3:70 rear member from an early El Camino.

The 350 motor now has a new distributor, Edelbrock intake manifold, and rebuilt Holley. The original radiator has been re-cored at a cost of $800. This truck starts easily, even after long periods of sitting idle and always runs cool.

All gauges have been replaced with modern components and function as they should. The electrical system is 12 volt.

The bench seat is from a newer vintage automobile. A headliner needs to be installed.

The steering column and front end components have been rebuilt, however, keep in mind that these components were built with 1941 technology and handles as such.

This truck was built a number of years ago, (not by me) and shows its age in that the paint has cracks and spidering,

It is not a show truck! What it is, is a dependable driver that always draws plenty of attention.

Unfortunately, I don’t use the truck enough that warrants keeping it any longer. As you can see from the odometer reading I have driven a little more than 200 miles during the six or seven years that I have owned it.

Price $26,500
