The best rods are those that are finished and fully engineered. Built as a project car buy the guys at "Rod Action" magazine, it's completely functional and full of traditional styling tricks. As a real 1941 Chevy convertible, there's a full folding top, a powerful LT1 engine, and a comfortable ultra-leather interior with all the creature comforts. Why settle for less? There's still plenty of Chevy DNA visible in this amazing ragtop, but the list of body mods is extensive. Starting with a clean '41 Chevy, they started by deleting all the trim, including the bumpers and door handles, for an ultra-smooth look. The hood was sectioned and pancaked, the rear fenders were molded into the body, the headlights were frenched, and, well, you get the idea. It's still a '41 Chevy, but the details are pretty spectacular. I'm sure they created more than a few articles in the magazine about doing bodywork, and they nailed it because the steel is super straight, the gaps are excellent, and the final finish is distortion-free. The paint is from the Ford palette, called Twilight Royal Plum, and it's simply spectacular. The grille is restored and is the only bright chrome piece on the entire car, and all the lighting has been upgraded: cat's eye headlights up front and a full wrap-around LED taillight out back. The whole car is extremely slick. There's not much 1941 Chevy left inside, however, where the entire interior has a high-tech makeover starting with custom bucket seats wrapped in white ultra-leather. You'd think that it would be white overload, but the dark gray carpets and slight hints of gray in the other materials give it a modern look that's elegant, not over-the-top. Starting with a custom center console and matching door panels, the entire interior received an extensive set of modifications that make it as easy to drive as your daily driver and as stylish as anything coming out of the OEMs today. A full Dakota Digital instrument panel works with the car's overall vibe and features like the A/C vents have been neatly integrated. There's also a Pioneer touch-screen entertainment system that powers speakers stashed throughout the car, so it's filled with sound at any speed. And as a real convertible, there's a black Haartz canvas convertible top for inclement weather, chopped 3.5 inches for a hot-rod look. The trunk is outfitted for show, too, and includes finished side panels and decent storage space. The powertrain was lifted intact from a low-mileage 1990s Camaro police cruiser, dressed with tons of chrome, and dropped into this slick Chevy's smooth engine bay. A trick serpentine belt setup tucks the accessories in close so it fits neatly in the pointed engine bay and it's obvious that a lot of time and thought went into the routing of the hoses and wiring. Backed by a 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and a set of 3.73 gears on a Posi out back, it's both snappy on the street and effortless on the highway, making this an awesome choice for long hauls. The chassis was reinforced as needed and nicely detailed, although it now shows a few minor signs of use. 4-wheel disc brakes, an independent A-arm front suspension, and the perfect stance all make this a rod that was built to be driven. Shiny Budnik billet wheels fill the fat fenders with 225/60/15 front and 245/50/16 rear BFGoodrich radials. Magazine cover car, beautifully built, full of all the best hardware, what's not to love here? This 1941 Chevy is a winner no matter how you look at it. Call today!
