1941 was a very good year for the auto industry and it seemed like Ford just couldn't make a bad-looking vehicle that year. This 1941 Ford Pickup Restomod takes all the timeless styling cues from the legendary 1940 Ford passenger cars (and you know how awesome those are), and adds a sinister-looking paint job, comfortable A/C interior, and a modern 6.0L LS2 under the hood to create one heck-of-a good looking pre-war pickup!
<br><br> Is there really any other color for one of these trucks beyond basic black? It looks so right that you'd be crazy to try anything else. At Ford, trucks took the front-end styling of the previous year's passenger car models, so the 1941 pickup is the spitting image of the 1940 Ford Deluxe, V-shaped grille, teardrop headlights, everything. The result is a classic look that remains popular with hobbyists of all ages, and one that is ripe for updating into a killer restomod such as this. The black paint was applied a few years ago, so it shows a few signs of use, but the sheetmetal underneath is in very good shape and wears the black paint with pride, proving it's a clean old truck that has been properly driven and enjoyed. It's all steel, too, which is getting harder to find all the time, and with features like suicide doors, deleted bumpers, and a roll pan out back, this little Ford is as slick as can be. There's not a ton of tacky chrome distracting from the design either, but the extra wide grille and headlight bezels that make this truck so familiar were left in place, and that little bit of bling is all that's needed for some nice contrast. The oak bed is full of handsome varnished planks with contrasting chrome strips, and with the flick a switch, the wood lifts up for a cool trick feature to expose the new fuel tank and battery that will certainly impress at the car show.
<br><br> As timeless as the exterior seems, the two-tone, black-and-gray interior complements it perfectly. The bench seat looks appropriate for 1941, although it's a later-model piece that was custom upholstered with black vinyl and gray ostrich inserts that match the flanking door panels. It was all installed at the time of the build, of course, with a few pieces of billet and polished aluminum throughout the cab, new Omega Kustom Instruments that have a vintage look, and a handsome banjo-style 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 manages speakers in the kick panels and subwoofers under the seats, making this hotrod pickup a pleasure to drive. There's also power windows and locks, which is a thoughtful touch, and a fully insulated cab with a taut headliner above means someone was thinking about driving this truck in the real world when it went together. And if you're anything like us, you'll probably find it hard to resist when the open road calls.
br><br> For power, it runs a 6.0L LS2 V8 and a 4L80E 4-speed automatic transmission, and reliability was the reason this modern drivetrain was dropped in just 3,038 miles ago. While it sure looks like a trailer queen under the hood, this truck was really built to run and it just wouldn't do to have a truck this visible breaking down by the side of the road. It features a modern fuel-injection system, a Vortec manifold and cone air filter, modern alternator and ignition system, and block-hugging headers that feed into the Magnaflow exhaust underneath. The cooling system starts with a giant aluminum radiator and includes a big electric cooling fan, and service access is still quite good despite the rather diminutive engine bay. The front suspension is a modern Mustang II setup with tubular control arms and power rack-and-pinion steering, while out back you get coilovers and a 4-link set-up. Black Torque Thrust-style wheels look slick and show off the power 4-wheel disc brakes with drilled and slotted rotors behind them, and they carry staggered 215/45/17 front and 235/45/17 performance radials that give it just a bit of a rake.
<br><br> This is a really neat truck, done the way you'd want it, with only 3,038 miles on the build. Given the values on the passenger car versions, it won't be a surprise to see a SOLD sign on this one very soon. Call today!
