From Joe :
This is my classic 1941 Chevy 1/2-ton AK series pickup. It was built in Oakland, CA. I have had it for three years. It was painted in 1997.
The old truck has a 1955, 235 cu.in. 6 cylinder engine w/15000 miles on rebuild. It also has 12 volt wiring and generator. It has as the original 3 speed transmission, rear end, torque tube drive line.
This model features a crank-out windshield. I put a new headliner and kick panels, and some 12 volt gages.
My old Chevy also has the original 1941 plates.The bumpers and the grille have been re-chromed. The art deco front grille is what caught me eye -- it's great.
This truck must have been a base model because it doesn't have a heater or radio.
This truck has won many trophies, and been in many parades, It was featured in the 2009 July issue of Pre War Auto Notes Magazine.
Hope you like the picture.
