WONT LAST, 350 V8, 700R4, AIR COND, FRNT PWR DISCS, PWR STEER, NICE PAINT/INT!!!
You already know that the post WWII Chevrolet Advance Design pickups are some of the best-looking haulers ever built, and when they're as smooth, sleek, and downright gorgeous as this 1950 Chevrolet 3100, it's easy to fall in love. But it's this truck's modern touches that will really seal the deal...and we cant keep them in our showroom!
Funny how the old shapes wear contemporary colors so well. You could get red from Chevrolet in 1950, but it would have never been so deep and shiny that it rivals the chrome as it does on this one. Speaking of brightwork, this tall truck has a huge silver streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumpers, and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. The better-than-new classic appearance even extends to the wood truck bed, where the lumber and chrome have been rehabbed to make this blue collar hero look like it never saw a day of work. All of this combines to give the impression of a custom hot rod, and the clincher for this bad boy attitude comes from the iconic Cragar Chrome Keystone Klassic wheels.
Inside is more of the hot rod treatment, but with a premium twist. For example, the black vinyl seating is always welcomed in the vintage crowd, but this bench has a cool matching red insert in the middle. The driver gets a grippy sports steering wheel with enough chrome to fit in with the rest of the dash panel. Beyond that is a new set of gauges by Classic Instruments that look clearer than the originals, without losing the nice vintage touch. The same goes for the AM/FM/cassette radio sitting in the original knob-style fitting. But the best interior upgrade has to be the modern air conditioning system that was discreetly tucked under the instrument panel to keep you cool as you cruise town.
The standard Thriftmaster six-cylinder engine that came with this Chevy 3100 would never do in a truck this cool. Instead, it upgrades to iconic small block-power with a 350 cubic-inch V8. One turn of the key, and you'll know this has some serious performance potential (of course, the throaty rumble from the dual exhaust helps, too.) But this is much more than just a unique pickup to show off on the custom car scene. There's a lot of comfort in this truck. It has a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive for all-day cruising. Plus, this is a power steering pickup, and the front end was adapted from a later-model Buick for better luxury and the added security of disc brakes.
The unmistakably vintage appearance of these Chevy trucks makes them wildly popular today. This one neatly captures everything that was great about the original design, with smart upgrades that make this fun everywhere from the local burger joint, to a car show many states away. Call now!!
