It's no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, very generation has found a solid following and, ventually, irm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, e've featured plenty of vintage, round-pounding bowties, nd this sleek '59 resto-mod is just the latest in a series of sweet Task Force head turners. Mixing a massaged small block and modern GM 4-speed with bodywork that'll sit well on any show field, his road-ready warrior is worthy of EVERY Chevrolet fan's full attention. If you're shopping for a clean classic that mixes modern detailing with purposeful simplicity, ake a close look at this slick 3100!

BODYWORK/TRIM

A solid canvas that was ready to reflect some smooth street rod art, his super cool pickup benefitted from a ground-up, ut and bolt build that was designed for the street or the show. In addition to top-notch restoration, he truck's sculpted body was supplemented with custom inner fenders, ider wheel tubs, nd a cut, moothed and filled firewall. With that labor-intensive groundwork laid, smoothed hood and custom roll pan framed a smoothed tailgate, haved mirrors and a billet-trimmed Curly Maple bed. That slick fuselage eventually made its way to Washington's Whipple Motorsports for a seamless coat of Deep Black Gloss 2-stage. And, hen that wet-looking pigment dried, inishing touches included modern headlights, mber parking lamps, apped wipers, inted glass and bright LED taillights.

ENGINE

Toss the hood and you'll find a 358 cubic inch, uel injected small block that, ccording to this Chevy's builder, reates healthy 10 to 1 compression. At the top of that polished and painted mill, ustom, olished aluminum air tubes feed GM tuned port injection, hich is seated between stainless fluid lines and a high quality Lokar throttle linkage. Below that linkage, ree-breathing heads hide Comp roller rockers under polished, hite-detailed valve covers. Fires get lit by fresh EZ Wiring, hich jolts MSD Street Fire plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a Griffin aluminum radiator, hich rides between a chrome puller fan, polished expansion tank and a custom-fabricated support cover. Spent gases exit through ceramic-coated shorty headers. A Billet Specialties Tru Trac accessory drive spins an Edelbrock water pump between a polished AC compressor and polished Powermaster alternator. And the truck's glossy, ody-matched engine compartment is exceptionally well done, ith items like chrome dipsticks, olished hood hinges and a custom-fabricated engine cover rounding out an otherwise impressive build.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Crawling under this old school bowtie reveals a fresh double A-arm/4-link suspension that's been augmented with polyurethane bushings, ubular control arms and adjustable coil-over-shocks. Behind the small block, 700R4 4-speed bridges the gap between a 10-bolt axle and 2,500 RPM stall converter. That familiar drivetrain pushes heavily undercoated floors on a body-matched chassis. Unisteer electronic power rack-and-pinion steering provides tracking. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to power-assisted, erospace Components calipers, hich squeeze big drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers breathe through fabricated, rimp-free pipes, hich hang welded, ual-chamber mufflers in front of polished, uad-outlet tips. At the corners of the chassis, olished Coys wheels twist 245/40ZR18 Falken Azenis in front of 315/35R20 Falken Azenis. And everything, rom the truck's Milodon oil pan to its relocated fuel tank, s well planned, ell executed and ready to work its magic!

INTERIOR

When you pop this pickup's doors, ou'll find a stylish custom cockpit that's laced with plush, ltraleather surfacing. Top dead center, ushy bucket seats appear to be 90s-era GM pieces. In front of those seats, smoothed dash hangs Classic Instruments Tach-Force gauges above Streamline controls for the truck's Vintage Air climate system. At the base of that dash, custom console centers modern JBL audio and a short Lokar shifter between switch-operated courtesy lamps and big Directed speakers. Opposite that console, culpted door panels hang small, illet handles in front of 1-piece power windows. Under those panels, lean carpet frames billet foot pedals and color-keyed JBL kick speakers. And in front of the driver, tilting Ididit steering column spins a polished and half-wrapped Billet Specialties wheel.
