1956 Chevrolet 3100

What if you could have a truck that looks like 1956 but drives like a muscle car? Well, ere's the answer to your question, spectacular 1956 Chevy 3100 pickup with a burly 454 inside plus a cabin full of luxury options. Talk about having your cake and eating it too!Painted a vivid yet period-perfect Peacock blue, his Cameo pickup represents the first of the pickups that were actually styled by designers rather than merely engineered. As a result, hey carry a lot of automotive-inspired design cues, o if you see a little bit of Shoebox Chevy in the design, he coincidence is purely intentional. Of course, he fact that it was finished to a very high standard certainly helps, nd there's not a ripple, ent, ockmark, r dent anywhere on the beautiful surface of this truck. The paint is in excellent condition and could easily be taken up a notch with a professional buff, ut even as it sits, his truck gets a ton of attention. Enhancing the upscale look is a beautifully finished cherry wood bed with polished stainless strips that tie in with the bright chrome bumpers and brilliantly restored grille. Nothing has chopped or cut, hich should tell you something about how right the original design really was, nd just a few pieces of trim were shaved to give it an ultra-clean look. They clearly focused on making it right and they've definitely succeeded in a very big way. This truck is very, ery nice!Black is the dominant theme inside, ith the original bench seat replaced with a late-model unit with a center arm rest and fresh black cloth upholstery. It retains a '50s sensibility, ut the modern materials will definitely attract more than their fair share of appreciative nods at shows. Simple door panels were covered in matching black cloth and beautifully bound black carpets soften the interior considerably, nd the power window switches were neatly hidden out of sight. The dash uses factory gauges in the original panel, nd A/C vents have been discreetly tucked underneath with modern hardware under the hood to chill things down very nicely. A tilt column with a custom billet wheel adds to the 21st century feel, s well as the cool AM/FM stereo head unit that mimics the original AM unit and didn't require any cutting to fit. Nice, ight? Underneath that beautiful blue sheetmetal you'll find a burly 454 cubic inch Chevy V8. The big block is a neat fit in the 3100's engine bay, lmost as if it was designed that way, nd it's got a few dress-up parts like the chrome air cleaner and finned Mickey Thompson valve covers. A big 4-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake manifold help build reliable power and there's a big aluminum radiator up front. Power steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes make this truck a pleasure to drive, nd the front suspension uses tubular A-arms. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission clicks through the gears, eeding a GM 10-bolt rear hanging on a set of monoleaf springs that mean this truck handles better than you'd expect. A 2.5-inch dual exhaust system gives it just a little bit of rumble, ut it doesn't intrude, aking this truck an easy long-distance hauler. Staggered Coys wheels emulate vintage Torque Thrusts and wear 235/55/17 front and 235/55/18 rear Kumho rubber.This is a no-compromises truck built to very high standards, nd you'll be proud to call it your own.
