1941 FORD PICKUP STREET ROD C-850 1941 was a very good year for the auto industry and it seemed like Ford just could not make a bad-looking vehicle that year. This 1941 Ford Pickup takes all the timeless styling cues from the legendary 1940 Ford passenger cars, and adds an eye-catching paint job, comfortable A/C interior, and a newly rebuilt Ford 351 Windsor V8 under the hood to create one heck-of-a good looking pre-war pickup! Is there really any other color for one of these trucks beyond a deep red? It looks so right that youd be crazy to try anything else. At Ford, trucks took the front-end styling of the previous years passenger car models, and interestingly enough this truck has a 39 Ford body front end. The result is a classic look that remains popular with hobbyists of all ages, and one that is ripe for updating into a killer street rod such as this. Its all steel, too, which is getting harder to find all the time, and with features like minimized nerf bar bumpers, various underglow lights, Full TCI Chassis, bluetooth and a front facing camera for checking those curbs, this little Ford is as slick as can be. The oak bed is full of handsome varnished planks with contrasting chrome strips. As timeless as the exterior seems, the black interior with red stitching complements it perfectly. The bench seat looks appropriate for 1941. It was all installed at the time of the build, of course, with a few pieces of brightwork throughout the cab. New Mooneyes Instruments that have a vintage look, and a nice leather wrapped chrome steering wheel on an aftermarket column that gives the driver a lot more room inside. Vintage A/C makes this a go-anywhere cruiser and a Kenwood AM/FM/CD/AUX head unit under the drivers seat allows for tunes. There is also power windows and a cab with a taut headliner above means someone was thinking about driving this truck in the real world when it went together. For power, it runs a newly rebuilt Ford 351 Windsor V8 and a C-4 Automatic Transmission. While it sure looks like a trailer queen under the hood, this truck was really built to run and it just wouldnt do to have a truck this visible breaking down by the side of the road. It features a modern electronically adjustable FITECH fuel-injection system, an Edelbrock manifold and custom made vintage style air filter adorned with beautiful pinstriping. Additionally, it has a March Performance serpentine system, a modern alternator and ignition system, and dual exhaust underneath. The cooling system starts with a giant aluminum radiator and includes a big electric cooling fan. The front suspension is a modern independent setup with tubular control arms and power rack-and-pinion steering, while out back you get solid axle leaf spring suspension with Ford 9 inch posi-traction rear-end. Polished aluminum wheels look slick and show off the power 4-wheel disc brakes and they carry staggered 195/60/15 front and 225/65/17 BFGoodrich Comp radials that give it just a bit of a rake. NEW features include: TCI Chassis, chrome, wheels, tires, windows, gauges, door locks, battery, March Performance serpentine system, stereo, gas tank, radiator, wiring, oak wood in bed with chrome, as well as fresh engine rebuild. This is a really neat truck, done the way youd want it, with LESS THAN 267 miles on the new running gear! Given the values on the passenger car versions, it wont be a surprise to see a SOLD sign on this one very soon.
