AutoHunter Spotlight: 1942 Chevrolet Pickup

Restored and upgraded truck with a Camaro-sourced 350cid V8 engine


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 1942 Chevrolet pickup that’s powered by a Camaro-sourced drivetrain.

“The AK-Series light-duty Chevrolet pickups went on sale in 1941 on the General Motors A-platform which was shared with the Deluxe passenger car,” AutoHunter notes in the truck’s listing.

This second-year example was repainted in red during an older restoration and is equipped with color-matched running boards and brightwork for the bumpers, grille, trim, dual sideview mirrors and dual exhaust outlets.

The seller rates the paint condition a 7 out of 10, point out a small crack on the right rear fender and other cosmetic blemishes.

This truck rides on a pair of color-matched steel wheels capped with chrome-finished Chevrolet hubcaps and wrapped in new 145/60 BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires.

The interior houses a reupholstered gray vinyl bench seat with matching door panels and a red metal dash. An aftermarket banjo-style steering wheel is installed.

Power comes from the replacement 350cid V8 soured from a Camaro and upgraded with an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor and a custom headers. The engine is mated to a column-shifted automatic transmission.

This truck’s auction ends October 12 at 11:00 a.m. PDT.
