High bid of $30,000 at 2014 Mecum - Monterey. (did not sell)
The 1941 Chevrolet light duty trucks had new front end styling with fender mounted headlight pods with swept-back parking lights. The grille had both vertical and horizontal bars. They had no hood ornament, and had a single horizontal chrome stripe running from the upper grille section and extended backward. Also on the side of the hood were three shorter horizontal stripes.

Power was from an overhead valve six-cylinder engine displacing 216.5 cubic-inches and offering 90 horsepower. They had a three-speed manual synchromesh gearbox with a four-speed unit available for the 1-ton models.

This example has been given a nut-and-bolt, body off restoration and finished in Black with Red striping. It has been driven just 63 miles since the restoration was completed.

Suburban
Chassis #: ID49466C0L0
The name 'Suburban' was used by several automotive companies (including Nash, Dodge, Plymouth, Studebaker, and GMC) in the United States to describe their windowed, station wagon-type body on a commercial frame. In 1935, Chevrolet began production of its all-steel 'carryall-suburban'; GMC introduced their version in 1937. These vehicles were also known as the 'Suburban Carryall' until GM simplified the name to 'Suburban.' Chevrolet offered the body style as a 'Carryall Suburban.' It had the same front sheet metal and frames of the half-ton pickup models of that year, but was given an all-metal wagon body that was similar in shape from contemporary woody wagons. Inside, there was seating for up to eight occupants, with three in the front row, two in the middle row and three in the rear row.

The Third Generation Suburbans were produced from 1941 through 1946 (since this was during WWII, civilian production consisted of 1941, 1942, and 1946). During World War II, it was produced as a military transport vehicle. The models with the rear panel door were designated 3106 while those with tailgates received designation 3116. Power was from a 216 cubic-inch 6-cylidner engine for the Chevrolet models. GMC versions were fitted with a 228 cubic-inch 6-cylinder engine and rested on a 116-inch wheelbase.

This Suburuban is a restored example that is fitted with a period-correct Wayne-Chevy cylinder head and Offenhauser intake manifold. Wayne and Offenhauser were the premiere Chevrolet high-performance aftermarket manufacturers of the day.

In 2015, it was brought to the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Az. where it found new ownership for the sum of $77,000 (including buyer commission).
