1946 Chevrolet Other Pickups

At first we won't even mention the historical significance of this 1946 Chevrolet 3100 truck. Instead we'll give you a moment to look at the quality of this chopped and lowered hot rod V8 pickup. That way you can already have a deep desire for its custom touches before we talk about this Chevy's cool story you'll love to share.This is the pickup truck that got American moving again after WWII. In fact, hevy even acknowledged these more as a continuation of the Pre-War, 942 model year from a design and engineering standpoint. It has some rarity because Chevrolet stopped producing the C/K series in May of 1946 because they wanted to introduce improvements before 1947. That makes this a less than one-year production model. Of course what you see here is far from an original museum piece frozen in time from the mid 40's. It takes the American hero, nd transforms it into a very American hot rod. It starts with a nice tribute to the most plentiful color available in the immediate post-war, urret Gray, ut this is the exact opposite of drab. There is a metallic element introduced that amazes from even across a show field. In a nice touch, he bumpers have been removed to help emphasize the rounded front end that complements the 40s-style flowing fenders in the front and rear. The staggered size of the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels give this one an aggressive, nd low, orward-leaning stance that is further amplified by the chopped cab. The custom work even extends to the bed, here the wood floor has been traded for a more durable metal one, nd the tailgate even has Chevy's "Heartbeat of America" slogan, hich has added significance on this patriot.You know the custom work continues on the interior the moment you use the door poppers because the door handles have been shaved in true hot rod fashion. Plus, hey are now hinged in the rear for a sought after suicide door upgrade. You're immediately greeted by a tan leather with textured ostrich inserts on the custom bucket seats, oor panels, nd even the Chevy bow tie headliner. From the driver's seat this pickup looks like a work of art. It starts with a custom sports steering wheel, n ostrich and chrome. Beyond that is a full set of Classic Instruments gauges that are both crafty, nd shiny. The rest of the upper dash shares the exterior gray, nd houses the AM/FM/CD stereo. Below that is a custom panel made of machined metal that holds the controls for air conditioning.Open the hood, nd you'll see something much more significant that the original six-cylinder. It's Chevy's trusty and infinitely upgradeable 305 cubic-inch V8. It looks nice with brightwork pieces such as the A/C compressor and air cleaner, nd even the valve covers have been painted to match the engine bay. But beyond just looking good, his one is built to be a reliable driver, ith an aluminum radiator and electric cooling fan. There's more evidence of this being a road king when you take a look under the pickup, here you'll spot power steering, n independent front suspension, nd front disc brakes. It even has a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. But even as fun and easy this one is to drive, ou still let the world know this is a hot rod with the nice rumble from Cherry Bomb mufflers on the dual exhaust.The looks you get from people will be admiration, ot envy. After all, veryone loves a patriot, nd this is your opportunity to own a very cool piece of American history that you can drive just about everywhere, nd have nearly everyone wanting a better peek.
