The vintage truck market is heating up with the mainstream Chevys and Fords, but when was the last time you saw a 1941 Dodge WC pickup as a full custom build? With nice upgrades like an A/C interior and a V8 heart, this is the pickup that has an appeal that goes well-beyond its attention-grabbing paintwork.
If you're a lover of history, then you know 1941 is quite significant. It was the last full civilian model production year before WWII, and in fact, some of these Dodge trucks were already bought for military duty. But that's not what really attracted you to this one. Instead, its allure starts with a flame-kissed attitude that tells you it is one hot custom. And not only do you have a blazing hot front end, but also the orange metallic that covers the rest of this pickup is quite striking, too. It's a complete package that even matches the tool box in the bed. There are more custom details on the bed, like the blue-dot taillights, wide exhaust tips, and a menacing Grim Reaper graphic on the tailgate. And if they didn't find the reaper intimidating enough, the extra wide set of Mickey Thompson rear tires should get their attention.
Inside there's more custom work that mixes classic style and upgrades. The dash and door tops match the exterior orange, and it's now joined by a tasteful black. The steel dash has the unmistakable look of vintage stock. But this is also made to be more comfortable than a 1940s machine with a well cushioned bench seat, nice carpeting, and an upgrade to cold-blowing air conditioning with modern R134a refrigerant. It's also built to be a better driver with a Lecarra sports steering wheel on a tilt column, floor shifter, and crisp VDO gauges.
We always love the style of a butterfly hood, and on this Dodge it's particularly attractive as the big rounded fenders just seem to complement the look. So since you'll want to be lifting the hood everywhere you park, they made sure the motor was ready to show off. You have polished components like the ribbed valve covers, matching air topper, and alternator. You'll also enjoy showcasing this because it's a true upgrade in power. It's Chevy's 350 cubic-inch small block V8, and they upgraded it for extra power with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers that feed a rather straight set of dual exhaust pipes. And the upgrades don't end there. This truck is sitting on an updated frame from a late model Chevrolet S-10 and includes an upgraded independent front end and shocks in the rear. There's also a three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes.
This Dodge has a cool history, a terrific custom look, and the features you love. So when you can get it in such a stand out package, you know you need to hurry to grab this custom truck. Call today!!!
