AWESOME RESTORED PICKUP, 350CI, 700R4 O/D TRANS, A/C, SUPER SLICK BODY & PAINT!
Advanced Design Chevy trucks seem to be one of the hottest vintage pickups going because they combine an upright tough appearance with the sleek lines that make other GM products iconic in the 1950s. So we're always excited to have a 1951 Chevrolet 3100 truck like this one that perfectly blends old style with new amenities like A/C, a hot V8, and overdrive transmission.
Funny how the classic silhouettes wear contemporary colors so well. You could get red from Chevrolet in 1951, but would have never been as striking as this. Merlot Jewel is a late-model GM color, and so the deeper metallic hue gives this pickup an instant impression of sophistication. It also has been nicely customized in areas like the shaved door handles (with remote door openers) to give the modern clearcoat more room to show off its slick presentation. And speaking of smooth, the sheetmeal looks amazing, which is a small miracle considering these were original purchased to be workhorses. The brilliant chrome and trim remains right where Chevy designers intended, including on that tall grille that looks like an Art Deco skyscraper. But as you look over the whole pickup, you see great additions, too. This includes the bright trim outlining the fenders, diamond plate truck bed, and those large 17-inch Body Coddington alloys.
Inside is a nice blend of vintage and new worlds. The black leather bucket seats give you the kind of long-haul comfort that you could never get from a '50s machine, and the center console in between maximizes this luxury feeling. Plus, other upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold R134a air conditioning are the kind of pieces that really make this classic an easy choice to enjoy anytime. But when you sit in the driver's seat, the exterior-matching dash still retains that classic Chevy 3100 shape. It even keeps the placement for the gauges, but now you get much more info thanks to a full set of modern Dolphin readouts. And once you grab the three-spoke sports steering wheel and B&M shifter, you know there's far more power in your hands than the Stovebolts that originally came in these pickups.
Before you open the hood, you might want to grab your sunglasses. The engine bay is just as show-ready as the rest of the truck thanks to smooth painted fender walls and firewall that help showcase a tidy V8 that has had nearly every possible component polished to a mirror-like shine. You really can see how thoughtful the build was in all the details. For example, the wires are hidden and the steering shaft was painted to match the exterior. It also doesn't hurt that it looks so fresh considering there's only about 750 miles on this Chevy since it was built. And when you look beyond the style, you'll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch V8 with performance upgrades such as a Holley four-barrel carburetor and headers that feed a wicked rumbling dual exhaust. But with a presentation like this you know there is far more here than just a pure power package. An upgraded tubular A-arm front suspension, front disc brakes, and power steering give this one a far superior feeling on the road. In fact, it can provide a daily driver level of comfort thanks to great features like the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Also, the aluminum radiator and electric fan are there so your truck can stay cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.
So is this the best all-around pickup for the show, or the coolest commuter machine around? The answer to both can be "yes!" But you can only say that if you're quick enough to grab this custom build. Call today!!!
