This beauty will give The Blue Oval a run for the money.
You know how some rods just have the “look”? Well, this 1941 Chevrolet Super Deluxe coupe totally proves that. With a few traditional mods and vivid red paint, it demands attention everywhere it goes. The person who’s driving it, however, will enjoy it the most. The rest can just look and, most likely, not touch. This example boasts a quality build, handsome cabin, and reliable mechanics. It’s currently up for sale through Streetside Classics for $34,995, and you can make an offer on this Chevy right here.
Take a quick glance and you’ll notice the big headlights, brilliant chrome and trim, and lowered stance that make the stock bodywork on this street body look pretty sleek. This wide-fendered Chevy sports all the 1941 styling cues you’d expect, which was the pinnacle of pre-war design. For a car its age, this Chevy still looks fresh and the red paint appears vibrant. The fenders and running boards have been molded and smoothed into the body. The front grille is commanding and instantly recognizable, while the one-piece billet bumpers hug the hot rod beautifully. What’s more, the formerly two-piece windshield has been V-butted together, which makes a huge difference in the way the car looks. Out back, twin tailpipes poke out just beyond the rear bumper and the LED taillights blend seamlessly into the fenders.
This 1941 Chevrolet Super Deluxe has a stunning first-class interior with a stitched combination of burlap and tweed. The gray color really makes it bright inside the sporty coupe. The two-tone bench at the front is very comfortable and matches the large rear seat and door panels perfectly. Nearly all of the components in the cabin barely show any signs of use. The dashboard was completely restored and now houses an array of classy Stewart Warner gauges inside the matte gray dash, along with a matching under-dash panel that holds the modern A/C system and controls for the car’s accessories.
The driving position is also very comfortable thanks to the tilt column and leather-wrapped Lecarra steering wheel. Visibility is excellent through the panoramic windshield to give you a view of the road ahead. Play your favorite beats through the powerful AM/FM/cassette stereo all year long. The back seat is neatly trimmed to match the rest of the interior and includes its own matching door panels. Even the trunk is stunning and finished with custom side panels adorned with red “41 Chevy” script.
The powertrain on this Chevy Super Deluxe is reliable, powerful, easy to service, and loads of fun to drive. The heart and soul is a 350 cubic-inch Chevy V8 that seems like the appropriate (and obvious) choice here. It is mated to a TH350 three-speed automatic and 10-bolt rear end. It’s not hard to see that they didn’t cut any corners during the build or restoration to get it to where it is today. Plenty of shiny chrome and detailed components make the engine bay worthy of showing off at your next local event.
This beauty is also highly functional and features a giant radiator, power steering, power front disc brakes, and an upgraded ignition system. A custom front suspension with coilovers and rack-and-pinion steering make this classic hot rod super sharp on the road. At the rear, however, there's a conventional leaf spring setup with air shocks to help set the stance. A big gas tank and a tantalizing dual exhaust note will encourage you to drive this classic, rather than merely store it away. And those sharp 15-inch American Racing wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich tires give this Chevy an awesome profile as you pass by onlookers.
