1953 Chevrolet 3100

The Advance Design pickups are on the radar with enthusiasts, nd if you've been holding off waiting for a deal, ere's a newsflash: they will not be getting cheaper. The good news is that you can own this beautifully built 1953 Chevy 3100, ot for $30,000 or $35,000, ut quite a bit less.Basic white looks great on pickups, articularly vintage vehicles with lots of curves. The bright finish lets all those great '40s shapes stand out without making it look excessively modern, nd it's a great background for logos on the door such as the "Hot Rod Madness" logo this one wears. With straight bodywork that's uncommon on old trucks, t gets a ton of attention on the street and a lot of folks fall in love at first sight. Sure, t's been driven, ut who could resist? Today it's a great-looking example of a show-and-go pickup that's fully sorted and nicely turned out. Gaps are about what you got with a commercial vehicle of the period, nd the beautiful wood bed gives it an upscale appeal that will make you think twice about returning it to service duty. That same bed also offers a custom rear roll pan with built-in license plate frame, hand-lettered tailgate, nd marker lights up high. A new front bumper, ainted grille inserts, nd running boards maintain the vintage look with just a subtle upgrade that gives it a custom look.Inside it's still basic and simple, ut carries enough details to give it a purposeful and upscale look. The bench seat is from a late-model, ffering a center armrest and comfortable cloth upholstery. A matching late-model steering wheel and matching tilt column make it easy to get comfortable. Big, ound gauges remain in the dash giving a full view of the engine, ncluding a tach and a fuel level gauge up high. Red carpets help control noise and heat and really brighten up the interior, nd you get contrasting red window garnish moldings that are just the right touch. An AM/FM/cassette head unit fits in a neat Chevrolet panel in the center of the dash and it matches the polished glove box lid for an old-fashioned look.The engine is a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8, hich is a big step up over the original Stovebolt Six that lived there in 1953.With a Holley carb and finned aluminum valve covers, t has a dressed-up look that doesn't upset its work-ready demeanor. Power steering and front disc brakes were added during the build, oth of which came with the GM subframe that was grafted on. A TH350 3-speed automatic is rugged and reliable, iving this truck the ability to still haul some gear, nd the rear end comes from a late-model Chevy S10 pickup with 3.08 gears inside. A dual exhaust system sounds racy and it's been fitted with tube-style shocks so the ride is a lot less truck-like than you'd expect from something of this vintage. Polished Billet Specialty wheels and staggered 195/65/15 front and 265/50/15 rear Goodyear radials give it the perfect stance.A cool old truck that's ready to enjoy immediately, ffering proven reliability and a ton of potential. Enjoy it now, pgrade it along the way, nd watch prices go up at the same time. Call today!
