1950 Chevrolet Other Pickups RestomodWhen we use the term "restomod" it's because it takes all the best vintage elements and amps it up with all the best modern pieces. That's why this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 uses the term restomod just about better than any other vehicle. It takes the classic Chevy truck look and gives it a vivid paint theme, amazing custom A/C interior, an upgraded suspension, tri-power crate V8, and so much more.
This truck never hides its distinctiveness. You notice it from the first moment thanks to the two-tone paint. The matte black is in a direct contrast to the high-gloss purple w/metallic flake. These are such opposites, but they are also united in the idea of modern appeal, and so the result is an irresistible combo. And it all looks so fresh because this is on a truck that has less than 2,500 miles on the whole build. And when they were making this custom creation, they really looked at the details. That's why the white pinstripe that separates the two-tone coordinates with the white steelie wheels and white paint behind the grille. And even with this modern appearance, they made sure this Chevy still shows its vintage appeal. You see it in the way the classic sheetmetal carefully still holds its form. And there are great classic details, like the big five-bar grille, running boards, and real wood in the truck bed.
As you can see, the door handles have been shaved, so this truck comes with remote door poppers. Look inside and you'll see an award-worthy custom presentation. All the white accenting of the exterior gets you ready for a full white interior. The first thing you'll notice is the white seat. It has the classic-style bench, but now it's a custom presentation with individual bolstering and finished in a supple leather. This white coordinates with the custom door panels, headliner, and dash. Plus, you'll love the details, like the buckskin inserts in the seat frame and doors that remind you just how thoughtful the build is. They even brought back the exterior purple as part of the LED interior lighting! There are a ton of great modern upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input for your phone, cup holder center console, and cold-blowing air conditioning. You'll love the classic cruiser elements like the extra tall gearshift and a steering wheel borrowed from the '50s Chevy sedans. And they go well with the modern driver-oriented upgrades, like the tilt steering column and upgraded full gauge panel.
Under the hood is a presentation that's just as fresh as the rest of this truck. The dark engine bay funnels all your attention to the crisp and shining powerplant in the middle. This is a Chevy 350 cubic-inch crate V8, and you'll see all your favorite supporting components, like the serpentine belt system and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. But what you'll really love is how enthusiasts everywhere will be pointing at the three air toppers that signal Tri-Power. The triple set of dual-barrel Rochester carbs are a true performance icon that let the motor breathe deeply, and it exhales with authority as ceramic-coated headers feed the sweet-sounding dual exhaust. As you look at the undercarriage photos, it shows you how clean and fresh this whole build is. Plus, you'll spot the best upgrades, like a Thorbecke tubular front suspension and a four-link rear. There's also four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. And the full air ride suspension means you get to dial in your ideal ride height.
This is an absolutely awesome build that knows how to turn heads and win awards. And it also has the right features to do it near or far. So if you love being memorable everywhere, call today!
