FRAME-OFF RESTORED, FRESH & STRONG 250 CI, 3SPD AUTO, 2,500 MILES SINCE BUILT!
The right mix of a terrific vintage appearance with subtle modern upgrades makes this restored 1952 Chevrolet 3100 a stunner on the streets and an easy cruiser from behind the wheel.
It will be hard to find a pickup that looks this nice and so authentically vintage. The cream and dark tan is the perfect color combo to instantly connect with 1950s nostalgia. But as you take a closer look, the shine on the two-tone reveals a large investment in modern paint and a professional hand applying it. It's all part of a frame-off restoration that took place in 2011. And when the paint looks this good, only the best brightwork will do on places like the bumpers, wheel covers, and that iconic art deco grille. The final step is investing in getting the details right. Elements like the hood ornament and sun shade are premium pieces that a lot of other vintage pickups miss during restoration. And with fresh lumber laid down in the truck bed, this is the classic truck that will always draw extra attention and live up to the extra scrutiny.
Inside are more great upgrades without losing the vintage feeling. For example, you still have the full bench seat, but now it's far plusher, and it's covered in comfortable fabric to make this one ready for the long haul. Plus, the padded headliner and carpeting coordinate nicely while offering add cushioning and soundproofing. The steering wheel adds an artful touch, and it gives you an unobstructed view of the factory dash. There was special attention paid here to give you updated features like Borg Warner gauges and an AM/FM radio without ever spoiling the vintage atmosphere.
The upgraded theme continues when you look under the hood. The 3100-series trucks famously relied on the Chevy's trusty inline-six motor, and that tradition continues here... but with some nice additions. First off, this is a rebuilt 250 cubic-inch engine, which is larger than anything that was offered in pickups for '52. Also, you'll notice that this has some great upgrades like the Offenhauser intake, Holley carburetor, and Clifford valve cover. It gives this motor a fantastic presentation and an extra wallop of power. When you're out on the road, this added power combines with comfortable features like the TH350 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes to create a driving experience better than any '50s machine.
Complete with build receipts, and less than 2,500-miles on the whole restoration, you're looking at the perfect vintage setup for showing off and enjoying the drive. Such a nice all-around classic pickup is a package we're all looking for, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
