Pro Street, which loosely translates to “going fast and looking good doing it”, began to take off about 35 years ago. And today, with technology that continuously blurs the lines between street beast and track king, transforming classic metal into custom fabricated speed machines is one of America's favorite pastimes. But, even with top-tier aftermarket firms and a who's who list of custom kits, there's still something to be said about authenticity. And even though many companies create super nice replicas of some of the coolest designs to ever roll out of Detroit, they're still just a copy of the real thing. This insane 1941 Chevrolet custom is a REAL DEAL, real steel pro-street pavement pounder which combines a supercharged big block with a custom suspension and a modern appearance that'll chew up replicas on the strip AND the show field. Looking for sheer performance, an unbeatable show piece or just a cool car to own and enjoy? With this Chevy, you'll have all three!
Bathed in a vivid combination of orange, white and purple paint, and detailed with a full set of tan and green pin stripes, this bright '41 Coupe is the kind of killer pro-street we all dream of owning as kids and pledge to build as adults. There's just something that looks so right about 40s era steel that's had a blower shoved through its hood and giant tires stuffed under its fenders; and what better way to make this vintage Chevy even more menacing than a healthy dose of “look at me” pigment? The car's super straight body displays excellent fit under a smooth and glossy clearcoat shell. And with an unbeatable combination of old school style and striking good looks, its build absolutely nails that often attempted but rarely achieved formula of OEM quality in a completely custom package!
The sign of a high quality hot rod is a significantly altered design which flows together so well it appears as though minimal work has been completed. And although this Chevy coupe might look simple, it features MANY custom touches that make a big difference in its overall appearance. At the front of the car, a traditional steel grille rides between a deleted bumper and frenched and integrated headlamp housings which currently hold modern halogen headlights. Behind that grille a custom one-piece steel hood, which is tailored around the car's polished Hilborn air intake, caps traditional side louvers and seamlessly integrated front fenders. And above that hood, a smoked, flush mounted split windshield combines with smoked side glass to emphasize a moderately chopped roofline. At the sides of the car, factory drip rails serve as a lonely reminder of this Chevy's ornate, mass-produced beginnings. And completely shaved doors feature small aftermarket mirrors which add modern detail and provide much needed function. At the back of the car, a smoked rear window rides above a completely smoothed decklid. And frenched Corvette tail lights combine with a shaved rear bumper to perfect one of the best pre-war profiles ever created.
A careful hoist of the car's glossy steel hood reveals an NHRA-spec 454 cubic inch big block V8 which has been bored .060 over and, with the help of its BDS 8-71 supercharger, turns a steady stream of E85 ethanol into a whopping 1,085 China shaking horsepower! At the top of that massive powerhouse, a polished Hilborn intake twists color-keyed butterflies to funnel air into a four port Hilborn injection system that's complete with bright braided hoses and high quality aluminum fittings. Below that polished juice box, the big BDS blower shines between a traditional set of polished valve covers and a familiar set of aluminum Edelbrock Performer heads. And at the back of those heads, a chrome covered distributor fires sparks through purple Taylor performance plug wires. Spent gases are whisked away by a carefully placed pair of ceramic coated, long tube headers which roar into an aggressive three inch exhaust system. Cooling comes courtesy of an oversized aluminum radiator that's mounted between two quick spinning electric pusher fans, sleeved hoses and a polished Weiand water pump. And silver Deist Safety straps make sure all the mill's beastly power doesn't get too out of hand. Aesthetically, the car's well-maintained engine bay wears bright purple pigment which still looks great. And the big block's smooth black paint serves as an excellent background for the engine's many polished details.
Idle this mean Chevy onto a four post lift and you'll find a no-compromises drivetrain that's complemented by professional grade track equipment and solid, satin black floorpans. Behind the big block, a race-prepped Turbo-Hydramatic 400 3-speed automatic transmission utilizes a custom Ford nine inch rear end, which was built by Chris Alston's Chassisworks, to turn tough Strange S/S Street axles. Holding that awesome drivetrain off the ground is a back-halved frame which rides on a Mustang II front suspension, a fully adjustable four link rear suspension and a full set of Aldan coil over shocks. And at the corners of that chassis, manual rack and pinion steering and power four wheel disc brakes counter the big engine's rocket-like momentum only when they're needed. Burnt dinosaurs flow through a three inch true dual exhaust system which hangs great sounding Dynomax Race Magnum mufflers in front of traditional, welded side pipes. Power flows to the strip through 15 inch Billet Specialties wheels which spin beefy 26x7.50 Mickey Thompson Sportsmans up front and sticky 33x12.50 Mickey Thompson Sportsman Pros out back. And, in keeping with the tradition of the engine bay, everything from this car's braided hoses to its polished transmission pan is fully-sorted and ready to hit the track.
Pop this bright coupe's remote controlled doors and you'll find a tasteful custom interior that combines spectacular paint with supple leather surfaces. Top dead center is a pair of firm and modern bucket seats which are supportive and feel soft enough to take a nap on. At the sides of those seats, custom door panels hang slick, curved armrests and great sounding speakers below attractive billet door handles and simple power window switches. And between those seats, a custom, leather covered console anchors a slick Lokar-style shifter behind billet accessory knobs and a remote controlled, MP3 compatible Pyle CD/DVD player. At the front of the car, a stylish orange dash hangs attractive Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges below a billet rearview mirror. At the top of the car, a custom leather headliner is stretched tightly behind custom leather sun visors. In front of the driver, a polished tilt steering column spins a stylish Bad steering wheel around a full set of billet stalks and foot pedals. And behind the cockpit, a remote controlled decklid reveals a custom upholstered trunk which conceals a large fuel cell below a fair amount of storage space.
With its solid and clean all-steel body, cool paint job, completely custom leather interior, hot big block V8, and custom drivetrain and suspension, this 1941 Chevrolet Coupe has it all! Executing a ground up build like this would easily cost three times our asking price and probably require several years of painstaking work. Why not have it all, right now, in a proven package that's ready to cruise the show and own the strip?

What Customers Are Saying
I have the unique experience of buying and also selling a car from RK Motors.
It is very difficult and risky to evaluate a car on-line. I have heard many stories about people buying on-line and the cars did not turn out as advertised. This is where RK Motors works very hard to represent their cars as accurately as possible. They also do a great job of marketing their cars.
Their pictures give you the ability to look at details on any part of the cars you feel necessary. They are also willing to answer any questions you have as accurately as possible. They removed the all the doubt for me to purchase one of their cars.
I visited their showroom which is filled with high-level cars. Their sales staff were very professional and answered as many questions as they could for me.
When I decided to sell my car, I called RK and ask them how we could do this. They were very helpful and lead me step by step through this process. The thing that impressed me most was even though I purchased the car from them, they would not take my word on the quality of the car. Only after they did their evaluation were we able to finalize our deal. They took all new pictures and did a great job of marketing my car. They were able to sell my car quickly and kept me well informed through the entire process. We answered any questions the new owner had hopefully he will enjoy his car as much as I did.
I would highly recommend RK Motors to anyone buying or selling their cars.
