This 1941 GMC Truck Has Been Turned Into A Supercharged Off-Road Hotrod Build

A century ago, the vast majority of hotrods and custom builds weren’t crafted by professional shops, but rather by individual gearheads, working away alone or with friends in their garage or shed. And this at-home DIY method was the route taken by Tim Shedarowich when piecing together his 1941 GMC-based Prerunner build — a project that was completed almost entirely by himself in his garage.

Shedarowich started the project by building a full custom tube chassis, before pairing the one-off frame with a turn-of-the-millennium era aftermarket Ford Ranger suspension kit, Currie axles, and massive KING shocks fore and aft that afford 14-16” of suspension travel up front and a cool 21” in back. This 2WD off-road hotrod is powered by a carbureted 5.7L small-block crate engine that’s been gifted a 144 supercharger, a three-speed transmission with overdrive, and a Magnaflow exhaust — a setup that generates well over 400hp. Adorned in a faux patinaed paint job, the ’41 GMC also sports a full-sized spare tire housed on a custom flip-up rack, a rear-mounted CBR radiator, Method Off-Road Race Wheels wrapped in Toyo all-terrain rubber, and a set of modern Wilwood brakes. The interior also features a Holley IQ3 race display behind a Sparco steering wheel. To see more of the project, you can visit Tim’s Instagram page linked below.
