1942 Chevrolet 1/2-Ton Pickup
1942 Chevrolet 1/2-Ton Pickup
The Chevrolet AK Series truck was a light duty truck sold under the Chevrolet brand, with production beginning in 1941 until 1947. It used the GM A platform, shared with the Chevrolet Deluxe. The AK series was also branded and sold at GMC locations, with the primary visual difference being the Chevrolet had vertical bars in the grille, while the GMC had horizontal bars.
This truck's claim to fame is there is an actual Winross Truck Model patterned after it. The restoration is that beautiful, with a stunning color combination, straight steel, and eye-catching white grille, this truck is more comfortable taking you to the local country club, than hauling hay to the barn.
With green cab, hood and bed sides, and contrasting black fenders, running boards and large headlights, fronted by a fascinating white painted horizontal and vertical bar integrated grille, this truck drips with 1940's design. Chrome and trim are all beautiful and nearly better than new from the factory. Matching body color green wheels are adorned with Chevrolet logo moon style polished chrome hubcaps, and white white sidewall and thin tire radials. A newly installed white oak wood bed is noted and none of it has a mark on it.
Matte light gun metal gray sprays the metal door panels, and dash. Warm chocolate brown in rectangular form houses the simple gauge cluster in front of the steering wheel. A few cream bakelite knobs are seen within the dash, as well as a newly covered chocolate textured vinyl bench seat. A vinyl headliner, and sprayed gun metal gray panels make up the interior roof of the cab. Utilitarian rubber in black covers the floors.
Opening either side of the center hinged hood, we can see a perfectly restored 216ci inline 6-cylinder popper, with a 1-barrel side draft carburetor. A 3-speed manual transmission is attached to the rear of the I6 and shifts effortlessly.
Due to the restoration quality, there are absolutely no faults to remark about underneath. New running boards have also recently been put on.
A vintage beautifully designed pickup, in Concours condition, near perfect paint, an overall great restoration, has literally made a silk purse out of a sow's ear. “With a cluck cluck here and a moo moo there” I'll see you at the country club! It is now ready for “pickup” at the Classic Auto Mall.
