We were scouring through the many listings on eBay, and came across this sweet looking 1941 Plymouth pickup. Not only do you rarely see these early Plymouth pickups. It’s an even greater find to see one in this pristine condition.
The listing states that the truck was purchased from the father-in-law, who originally purchased it in 1961. He states that he has invested over $67,000 in the restoration of this beautiful pickup.
With only 6,073 units ever produced, this truck is definitely a rare find, especially when many of these early pickups were used as farm vehicles, and trucks limiting the number of survivors. We can’t say we agree with the choice of the drive line.
A Chevy 305 mated to a Turbo 350 transmission. Although it’s a very dependable combination, we would’ve liked to see an old Chrysler Firepower HEMI under the hood.
To keep this rare Mopar on the straight and narrow, a Mustang II front suspension was installed with GM disc brakes. Out back a Ford 8 inch rear end was used for reliability and ease of maintenance.
Even though this pick up falls under the category of what many may call a Resto mod, you can’t help but notice that the interior was so tastefully done, with high-end imitation leather. It looks almost stock, but it’s quite simple and luxurious for a pickup of its age. As of this writing, the little Plymouth pickup did not meet the opening bid of $33,000, and with any luck, it may still be available to fill that extra spot in your driveway. Wouldn’t this be a great-looking ride to spend the summer cruising around in.
The interior is just as pristine as the rest of the car.
Not bad for once being a work truck, huh?
