The ’41 Hits the Road!

Filed under: 41 Restoration,Fun around the factory — Amie C @ 12:21 pm

The ’41 is certified and on the road at last!  There are still a few things remaining to do on the old family truck – we were able to find the elusive front grille in Colorado and hope to have it soon – but the important thing was getting it on the road before the snow flies in Northern Ontario, and taking Mrs. Colquhoun on a little jaunt in it.


1941 GMC Truck is on the road at last.


Ian and his mother, who both learned how to drive on this truck, take it out for its inaugural run after the restoration

A few parts still missing, but it runs!

It’s nearing the end for this labor of love’s first big project.  Although, as other vintage car owners will attest to,  there will be lots of projects still to come just to keep it running!  If you were one of the enthusiasts who saw the restoration in progress, don’t be surprised to see the truck parked out front at Axiom next summer, and be sure to stop by for a closer look!  And for posterity’s sake, one last shot of  ‘Before’ the restoration began, so you can truly appreciate all the work Steve and the crew put into it.

The 1941 GMC Truck sits behind the factory waiting for its restoration.

President’s wife :) Defacto, that makes her an audio guinea pig, whose only request to the lab is to always run sample products in colors that blend in with the rest of her home!

She considers herself the Audiobyte’s Number 1 fan.

    Wow! Congrats to all involved. Having seen this on and off from the start (a “few” years ago!) I know how much work is involved.

    • Thanks Laurence, I think it has been about 7 years of plugging away at it a little bit here and there. When you are up in the spring you will be able to take it for a cruise.
