1941 Chevrolet Custom Coupe
One of the most unique looking classics built has to be the 1941 Chevrolet. From the fenders to that cool front grill the car just has a look like it needed to be made a street rod! Chevrolet was rapidly changing the appearance of their cars in these years moving to a different headlight set up in 1941 where they were inset into the fenders. This was a big change at that time and they never looked back with subsequent cars having the same style.
very nicely done 41 you see here took the looks of the car and combined it with the perfect customizations to make it really stand out in a crowd. It was very well built and has only built up 10,743 miles since completion. It is coated in a nice bright Green that has a great finish and always turns heads. It is just enough to grab peoples attention without being overbearing. With the car being shaved of all of its trim and door handles it really has a sleek look from front to rear. It looks awesome the way it is but would make a great canvas should the new owner want to add their choice of pinstriping, flames, scallops, etc. The perfect amount of chrome was left in place with the front grill and headlights. Both have a great shine and are in great condition. The electrical is all working properly and with the Ron Francis wiring set up you have no worries. All of the glass is in good shape with a dark tint that adds a lot to the exterior look. It has a 2 piece windshield in place which something every old hot rodder will be quick to point out. With cars like this you will find small details everywhere to show you how nicely it was really done. The attention to detail and creating a great street rod is really not something you see at every car show you go to. Small features like the external side mirrors really set it apart. Where most would buy billet mirrors off the shelf this car has custom painted to match mirrors that look like they should have been on there from the factory. They sit perfectly in place and were wired up to be remote operated from the interior. The car has a very nice stance and looks great going down the road. Peek under the rear of it and you will be greeted with those wide Mickey Thompsons that everyone loves! These are wrapped around custom Budnik wheels which are some of the highest quality rims money can buy.
If you thought those Mickeys were just for show then you obviously haven't check out under the hood! The car is powered down the road by a fully polished out 502 V8 that easily cranks out 600+ horsepower. It utilizes a street performance fuel injection system which not only adds to the performance but creates a very cool look. And it also makes it so the big block motor is not a serious gas hog. The car really gets pretty good gas mileage as long as you keep your foot out of it. As mentioned before the motor has chrome and polish everywhere you look. Virtually every single component is finished out in this way from the valve covers to the polished aluminum heads and pulleys along the serpentine belt system. The car runs cool and has zero heating issues with an aluminum radiator with electric fan and custom shroud. Power runs through the motor into the Turbo 400 automatic transmission and then finally into the rear end. The 12 bolt positrac rear end utilizes 3:73 gears and has been narrowed to make room for the rear wheels. Power assisted brakes are in place on all four corners with discs mounted up front. It also has a power rack and pinion system which makes driving extremely easy and enjoyable.
Checking out the interior you will see it is finished out in all Tan leather that is extremely well done. The patterns were laid out very well throughout the car and small features like the custom arm rests make the difference. The bucket seats are very comfortable and sit to each side of the custom center console. This console houses the AM/FM/CD player with DVD player and power window controls. A chrome Ididit tilt steering column is in place and is topped with a Budnik steering wheel that is wrapped in matching leather. The dash is finished out in a leather/painted combo that looks great. It houses the billet AC vents as well as the green lit Dakota Digital gauge set up. The trunk of the car is finished out just as nicely as the rest and is where you will find the battery mounted.
This awesome classic has a great look and shows extremely well. It has no problem winning trophies and has been shown at Super Chevy where it also won. People love street rods and more unique ones like this always get a ton of attention.
