1950 Chevrolet 3100
Bright chrome, windshield sun visor, tall whitewalls, patina, and that great art deco color make this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 seem like the perfect time capsule. But when you notice lowered suspension and hear the sound of the V8, you realize this classy pickup is also custom cruiser.
This Chevy just gets cooler the longer you look at it. That's because it features just the right amount of patina to make people take notice. It might have the look of worn-in, but there was a solid investment in getting this to look like a barn find. You know that immediately as you inspect the quality of the bright turquoise paint and how everything is smooth over the Chevy's famously rounded fenders. Plus, this tall truck has a huge silver chrome streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumper and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. There's even plenty of brightwork complementing the real wood truck bed. And while this one has a great vintage appearance, this one also gives plenty of hints that it's a custom build. After all, while you might be admiring those color matched steelie wheels with whitewalls, you also can't help but notice they tuck under the body for a lowered, more aggressive stance.
Inside, the turquoise returns on all the metal parts, but it's now joined by some terrific brown vinyl on the bench seat and door panels. And with carpeting that has matching tan piping, this is truly a premium presentation. But that hint of barn find attitude is still present on the interior, too, for those who really look for it anyone else spot the pre-war Ford steering wheel? Beyond that is a full set of Dolphin gauges, which is another clue to the performance upgrade in this patina pickup.
The standard Thriftmaster six-cylinder engine that came with this Chevy 3100 would never do in a truck this cool. Instead, it was upgraded to iconic small block power with a 350 cubic-inch V8. It looks just as ready to show off as the rest of the truck with the shiny ribbed valve covers and air topper. And even some of the brightwork is part of the mechanical enhancements, too, like the pulleys and aluminum radiator. And we know you love how the block was painted to match the rest of the truck's turquoise. But more than just look great, this is a powerful package with a Holley Four-barrel carburetor and Weiand intake. There's also a lot of comfort in this classic, including a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and power steering. Plus, the front end is a far more modern setup with an independent suspension that features sway bar front disc brakes.
A terrific all-around presentation with all the right upgrades makes for an iconic classic with plenty of modern appeal. A turn-key package like this is so irresistible, you know you need to hurry to grab this Chevy. Call today!!!
