Generally, Chevy trucks aren’t exactly rare, but this 1941 Chevrolet 1 Ton Panel Truck is an exception. Undeniably stylish, you don’t see these rolling down the streets basically ever. That fact alone makes it really stick out, so it’s the perfect ride for anyone who wants a standout form of transportation. For that matter, it would be a great form of advertising for a business, considering those large flat sides can showcase a large vinyl logo no problem.

This truck went through a restoration, which is evident in the many details.The two-tone Desert Sand and Black color scheme works perfectly with the original steel body panels. Gleaming chrome on the grille, front/rear bumpers, front fender vents, headlight bezels, and those dog dish hubcaps add that special something to the exterior. Period-correct whitewall tires help cap off the buttoned-up exterior.
You can choose to either open up the cab doors or the double barn doors in the rear to view the original interior. In the cab are two simple seats covered in new brown vinyl. The driver’s seat has a higher back, and considering this was originally a delivery truck that makes sense. In shockingly good shape, the large steering wheel has a simple presentation, just like the factory gauges. You’ll find black carpeting in the cab, while the door panels are painted metal, similar to the dash.
Be prepared for the shockingly well-crafted cargo area in the rear. Rich wood lines the floor, walls, and headliner. It’s been recently stained, while the strips and fender wells have been painted a gloss black.
Under the hood cowling is a smooth-running OHV 6-cylinder engine. It produces 90-horsepower, which was considerable for the pre-WWII era. A four-speed manual transmission is also included. This truck is ready to be driven and will definitely get people talking.
