The 396 does an excellent job of motivating the truck, along with it's heavy duty Turbo 400 assistant. Cruising around town, down the freeway, or just sitting still, this truck is comfortable with any situation. There's no overheating issues here either as the big aluminum radiator and electronically controlled fan keep the temps just right.
Aside from driving down the road very nicely, the interior of this '39, has more room than I expected. Most trucks of this vintage seem a little cramped at least for the driver, but, a wise choice of seating, and a tilt column provides excellent comfort even for long trips.
The miles registered are what's on the build, so you can be assured the truck is shaken out and reliable.
This particular truck caught the eye of “Classic Trucks” magazine while at a Good Guys event in Pleasanton, California, and as such decided to include the truck in a nice article in their October 2004 edition.
Show Truck, Fun to Drive Truck, cruise around town truck, Big Block power with A/C truck, looking cool in the garage truck. Grabbing attention where ever it goes. Whatever your pleasure is, this truck will have you covered. Beautiful Hotrod 1939 Chevy Truck!
