Description:

1953 Chevrolet Other Pickups

Up for auction is my 1953 Chevrolet 3100 half ton short bed pick up truck. This truck received a complete frame off restoration in 2013 and has been driven sparingly. It is registered in Kansas with the factory VIN numbers on the factory VIN plate that is still attached to the driver's door frame.

BODY
Frame off restoration of a solid body and frame. Bought as a whole truck. All original metal and VIN plate. Excellent body to start with.
1949 doors for a clean look without vent windows. The doors open and close good. Good body fit. Doors line up well. Occasionally on a rough road you will hear the driver's door latch rattle (might need further adjustment.)
Gas filler neck and side vent on cab eliminated. Gas tank is under the bed with the filler neck and gas cap flush with the steel bed floor.
Radio slot on the dash filled in.
Bumpers were moved 2 1/2 inches closer to the body.
New emblems throughout.
Original window frame trim has been polished.


New chrome bumpers.
Tailgate chains removed and replaced with tailgate latches.
New headlights and tail lights.
Satin hot rod black paint -- not a primer (Water beads when washed.)
Firewall has been cleaned up.
Power brake booster and master cylinder located on the firewall.
New window seals, door seals and window felt.
New welting on all four fenders.
SUSPENSION
New Mustang II weld in front end with 2 1/2 inch drop spindles on the original frame.
Manual steering.
New four link coilover (adjustable) rear suspension.
Half ton Chevrolet pickup rear end cleaned and freshened up.
New 15 inch wheels and tires.
INTERIOR
New Dolphin gauges.
New Southern Rods A/C and Heater.
Sound and heat mat used throughout.
New automobile carpeting on floor.
New tilt steering column.
New Sprint type steering wheel.
No radio. There is a place to install a radio under the driver's side in the original seat frame.
New chrome door handles and manual chrome window cranks.
Original seat reupholstered in brown leatherette material by an upholstery shop. Extra padding for comfort. Upholstery is well done and very comfortable.
Original type door panels match the seat color.
New chrome interior mirror and outside mirror.
New electric wipers.
All new tinted windows.
MECHANICAL
350 Chevrolet Vortec V8 motor completely rebuilt by a local speed shop.
Mild Cam (just enough lope to sound healthy).
Holley carburetor.
New Corvette style ramshorn exhaust manifolds.
New chrome engine parts, compressor, alternator, etc.
New aluminum finned valve covers and air cleaner.
350 Turbo transmission built by a speed shop with shift kit (shifts great)
New Lokar shifter.
New 12 volt wiring throughout.
New aluminum heavy duty radiator built for the Kansas heat. (Runs cool.)
New aluminum brake lines custom made.
Quality parts were used throughout with less than 1,200 miles on the build. I have hard copy pictures of the build from the beginning to putting it on the road.
This truck is low, loud and stout. It never fails to draw a crowd. It runs and handles good. It is fun to drive and own. Quality restoration performed by a craftsman with over 40 years in the business. With less than 1,200 miles on the truck since the restoration it is still going through its break-in.
Here is a good opportunity to get an already built truck at a reasonable reserve that is set to sell and not keep. Ask any and all questions before you bid, I certainly would. Good luck if you choose to bid.
