1953 Chevrolet 3100
We won't even pretend for a moment that is like any other pickup you've seen before. This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 has left its workhorse roots behind with all sorts of great features - from a big 454 fuel-injected V8, to its custom ground-hugging suspension. It was not built to haul wood... It was built to burn rubber and turn heads.
This Chevy just gets cooler the longer you look at it. Black might be a timeless color, but the matte finish adds an instant distinction. Plus, this great looking truck has a huge silver chrome streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumper and legendary five-bar grille that stands out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. And we know you'll love taking this to car shows where everyone thinks you've brought your grandfather's restored pickup... and then you get to watch their jaws drop to the ground at the same time you lower the air suspension right down to the ground. In fact, to fit the larger wheels and other components under the lowered suspension, the truck bed had to be raised. It's a cool custom trick that most people won't notice right away because they're too busy just marveling at the gorgeous real wood bed and 15-inch wide whitewall tires with baby moon hubcaps.
Inside the black and white theme continues with a very original presentation. After all, the bench seat, long dash, and spilt windshield are all part of what make a vintage pickup great. But then you start to notice a few nice upgrades. This includes the more modern Chevy steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. Beyond that is a set of updated, but vintage looking Stewart Warner gauges, and the controls for the air ride suspension.
These 3100-series trucks only had a six-cylinder from the factory, so you'll love lifting the hood and seeing a huge V8 upgrade. Filling out nearly every inch of this engine bay, but looking very at home is 454 cubic inches of big block power. More than just displacement, you've got throttle body fuel injection and headers, so this big motor also has great upgrades for dependability and performance. Yup, this is a monster, and everyone will know it thanks to the howling of the Flowmaster dual exhaust. This beast is mated to a stout GM 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission. But if you view it strictly as the ultimate hot rod truck, you're missing the full picture. Remember that this 700R4 has a highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, this one rides on a more comfortable Mustang II-style front suspension and a Monte Carlo trailing arm rear. Combine that with power steering and front disc brakes, and this one-off truck is a true comfortable cruiser when you want to rack up some leisure miles.
A slammed air ride stance, a mean V8, and a host of nice upgrades... this classic Chevy really has it all. And it can all be yours if you're quick enough to grab it. Call now!!
