4610 Pet Lane
This is one for the haulers, attention getters, and anyone who loves unique vintage trucks. After all, how often do you ever see a 1941 Chevrolet 1/2 Ton pickup flatbed on the road anymore? But with a strong 305 V8, cool paint, and all that lumber, this truck has been nicely restored to bring nostalgia to the commercial-grade field.
Do you have a business to promote or just want to make a splash at car shows? Imagine parking this vintage stake bed truck at your front door and/or taking up two spaces at an enthusiast event. After all, people are going to marvel at a truck like this. 1941 was a debut year for a new style, and these always get extra attention because of the 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 WWII rationing was not yet in full swing, so that new and distinctive grille gets to shine bright in chrome. So do the bumpers and two-piece window trim. It does have a touch of indulgence with the bright blue paint that has a modern clearcoat shine. As good as this looks, the whole appearance never seems afraid to 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 cab was built for long-lasting function with some extra comfort too. The vinyl bench seat looks authentic but benefits from a high-back style and an upgrade to a comfy velour. The same freshness can be found on the door panels. It's hard not to love sitting behind the large three-spoke steering wheel with the classic Chevrolet logo. But because you still want to use this one for function, the upgrade to a full set of Dolphin gauges keeps you well-informed.
Under the hood is where this one really deviates from the past. This one shows off its V8 proudly with a bright style that radiates within the dark fender walls. This 305 cubic-inch motor has all the right pieces, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise intake, Edelbrock ribbed valve covers, an alternator, a 12-volt system, and a rather straight set of pipes on the dual exhaust. A four-speed automatic transmission, and modern cruising tires keep this classic truck an easy-going rig.
So is this one your coolest advertising expense? Best looking hauler out there? Or just an affordable way to have some unique fun? For the right person, the answer to all of these is "Darn right!"
