CUSTOM, 327 V8, AUTO, SHAVED, POWER STEERING, UPDATED SUSPENSION, CLEAN!!
The great thing about classics trucks is, just like any classic car, you can express your personality through them in many ways. From concourse quality restorations, to wild show builds, trucks have always been a great platform to stand out from the crowd. This 1956 Chevrolet 3100 is a great example of that.
It makes its statement with flashy, custom painted graphics that look great and not overdone. Starting at the nose of the truck is a brilliant red hue that stretches to the top of the roof. Before transitioning to the glossy black finish at the rear of the truck, the two contrasting colors are split with a diagonal 'Z' formation silver stripe, creating three separate colors that accent each other well. The paint lies smoothly on the truck's panels and makes for a clean look with shaved door handles. There is some chrome highlights with a chrome grill, chrome bumper up front, chrome tail lights, chrome mirrors, and chrome steps on the stepside bed. Inside that bed is beautifully finished wood panels that provide a nice, classic aesthetic. Above the windshield you'll find stylish windshield visor that has a cool, custom vibe, and out back you'll see custom airbrushed graphics proudly showing off the Chevrolet and Bowtie logos. Sitting on 15'' bullet hole style wheels, it wraps up to a custom package that looks great!
Pop open the doors with the electronic door actuators with the remote and you're greeted by a fairly simplistic, but functional interior. Modern power bucket seats are wrapped in black leather and have convenient electric adjustments. They flank an aftermarket center console that serves as a comfortable arm rest, with a storage compartment, and dual cup holders. The dash, door trim, and interior shell have been body matched in the same red color as the front of the truck with tight carpet-like material finishing off the doors, while the same material is inserted up top for a clean headliner. A Sony AM/FM/CD player is mounted in the dash, while a digital gauge cluster provides the driver with necessary information. The driver is connected to the road via a Grant GT steering wheel.
Lift the hood to find a 327 cubic inch V8 that is cradled in a flat black engine bay. It's been dresssed up and modified with finned Edelbrock valve covers and air cleaner, an Edelbrock aluminum intake manifold, chrome pulleys and fan shroud, and all of the hoses and wires have been dressed in steel braiding for a high performance look. A powerful Optima Red Top battery takes care of power, and exhaust gasses are sent through a dual, side exit exhaust system. Another feature you'll notice when you pop the hood is the custom Betty Bop mural that pays homage to the legendary Route 66. That small block sends power to a 3-speed automatic transmission and power steering in the upgraded A-arm suspension front end makes driving this pick up even more enjoyable. Putting the power to the road is 255/60/15 Grand Am Radial GTs at all four corners.
