235 INLINE-6, 3SPD, GOOD/HONEST TRUCK, RUNS & DRIVES GOOD, BUDGET PRICED, COOL!
A great presence, interesting history, added power, and overall workman appeal makes this 1941 Chevrolet 3100 one of the most unique classic trucks you can pick up for quite a nice price.
The 1941 trucks were the debut for a brand-new look. You might recognize the design especially because Chevy utilized the appearance for their immediate post-WWII trucks to get American moving again. But 1941 is the only full year this was ever produced before we went to war. It's this kind of history that gives this truck an all-American desirability, and it really carries that workman spirit. As you look over the distinctive two-tone red and black it has the kind of honest presentation that looks like this pickup has been working for your family for decades. Even the real lumber in the truck bed looks like it's ready for another run to the feed store. But more than just its steadfast appearance, there are all the right pieces that make you love a classic vehicle. Features like whitewall tires and the extra tall bright grille that debuted in '41 remind you what a true pre-war machine should always look like.
The interior is still working-class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The exterior color theme is continued here with the red paint brightening up the interior against the full black bench seat. A rubber floor mat and other easy-to-clean materials make maintenance a snap. The factory heater was a nice luxury to warm you on your way home from the job decades ago, and now it's just a nice original piece to show off to your friends. And the three-spoke steering wheel has that great vintage feeling that instantly connects you to generations of hard workers that came before you. All of this highlights a truck that's still ready, willing, and able to go to work tomorrow.
When you open the classic butterfly hood, you'll see a true industrial motor with a nice hidden secret. Chevy's trusty inline-six looks exceptionally clean in presentation, and since these engines were installed in these trucks for decades, this one takes advantage of a larger displacement. The 1957-spec 235 cubic-inch motor is larger, more powerful, and provides even greater torque. Plus, it has been bored .30 over when this powerhouse was fully rebuilt for even more industrial force. Doesn't that sound like the perfect recipe for added power and reliability without losing the period-correct charm? Add in the correct three-speed manual transmission, and this is the kind of old-school driving experience that can make every day feel like a Sunday.
Complete with maintenance records and owner's manual, this is a very industrial and honest presentation of an interesting classic. And it has all the right power to still be your trusty pickup today. So when something is this interesting and still easily affordable, you know it will be gone soon. Call now!
