1941 Chevrolet 1/2 ton pickup

1941 Chevrolet 1/2 ton shortbed truck. found on the farm since 83. chassis swap with a 1991 S10 longbed chassis, which kept the fuel injected 4.3 and overdrive 700R4. CLEAN AND CLEAR 1941 title in my name, CLEAN AND CLEAR 1991 donor title included.
Hobbyist built. this is not a show truck (although it is a hit at all the 'show and shines' I have been to), I have not spent hundreds of hours carefully perfecting the body condition and laying down flawless paint. I did not grind and fill every weld with filler. I did replace everything related to safety and everything that was even slightly questionable. This is not banged together for a quick sale. It does run and drive very well, very smooth and quiet. It is easy to jump in and drive, it would make a nice weekend cruiser or even a daily driver. driving on the highway is easy and there is lots of power to exceed the speed limits in every state. interior is roomy, I am 6' and a big guy and I fit fine. There wasnt much rust in this truck when I started, the floor was missing the battery cover but that was the extent of it. there is non structural rust in other places but really the truck shows great. I wish it ran on "thumbs up" because it would run forever.
cruise control is installed/wired/plumbed but the stalk wiring does not exactly match the truck wiring so I have not hooked it up, being cautious. The AC is not fully installed, AC needs a condenser installed behind the grille and lines purchased and run. AC compressor is installed, AC evaporator is installed, everything is wired, just needs the condenser and lines installed and the system charged. The windshield regulator needs help opening and shutting, and does not completely close to seal the gasket although it has been getting better the longer the gasket sits in the sun. I will include a tarp that I strap to the cab windows when it sits outside.

truck had a 47-53 longbed and rear fenders when I bought it, replaced it with a correct 41 short bed and 41 rear fenders. Cedar bed wood treated with timber oil. I have not painted anything on the body of this truck except a section of the passenger rear fender, it was rusted through and I welded in a patch and dusted it with paint to slightly match.
this is a 76 year old body on a 26 year old chassis. I have replaced over $10k worth of parts, just the wheels/tires/rear fenders/bed/new windshield is almost $4k. I have tried to be as detailed as possible in the listing but there is no warranty offered and nothing in this listing can be interpreted as a guarantee. I dont know what it takes to title this truck in your state but I am giving you the valid 1941 title, its currently tagged in Kansas with this title, and which should be good for any US state. I am also including the title for the donor and pictures to show the history of the build from start to finish. shipping is the buyer responsibility, I will assist with things like being available for pick-up.
I am sure I have forgotten some things, please ask questions!
