SOLID BODY, 235 6 CYL, 3 SPD, ORIGINAL & FUNCTIONAL, CLASSIC AMERICANA, NICE BED
This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has all the right looks for a cool vintage pickup. The Advanced Design style has matured into old-school tough attitude. Now you have to decide, will it be the coolest workhorse around, or your next candidate for a full restoration in the hot vintage truck market.
This Chevy provides a real lesson in honesty. Plenty of classic trucks have been filled over the years with more features than the factory ever intended. Instead, this one has just gone through good maintenance as it passes into its seventh decade. The body is nice and straight, and the wood in the truck bed has been replaced to erase decades of any tough loads or rot. This Chevy was repainted at least once, and the burgundy has settled into a textured workhorse. It's the kind of appearance that comes with real creditability. You could buy this pickup today and put your company's name on the side. It will instantly make your business look like it has decades of sturdy history even if you just opened your door yesterday.
The interior is still working-class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The original bench seat was upholstered in brown vinyl atop the original tubular frame. A rubber floor mat and other easy-to-clean materials make maintenance a snap. The factory heater was a nice luxury to warm you on your way home from the job decades ago, and now it's just a nice original piece to show off to your friends. All of this highlights a truck that's ready, willing, and able to go to work tomorrow.
The real options in a workhorse pickup come in the engine bay. This one carries the period-correct larger 235 cubic-inch inline-six. Dressed in corporate blue, it still inhales through its original carburetor and oil-bath air cleaner. As expected, this kind of classic engine also has the fantastic old truck exhaust note that chugs along like a freight train. For that added touch of period-correct fun, the motor is mated to a three-speed column shift manual transmission. One helpful piece of modern equipment is the set of BF Goodrich Control Plus tires. They don't look out of place on this truck, and they will provide better all-weather grip than a vintage-style tire.
This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 is a nice and affordable classic pickup that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. Call now!!
