GREAT DRIVING, 350 V8, 700R4 OD TRANS, 4 WHL DISCS, MUSTANG II, PWR STEER, NICE!
This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 1st Series Pickup is one of the coolest ways to represent the final year of the legendary Advanced Design pickups. It has a freshly rebuilt V8 under the hood, and plenty of other upgrades to make it the perfect drive-able vintage pickup.
Chevy was giving its now-legendary (and extremely highly sought after) Advance Design pickup its final send off in 1955. So, this body style (right before GM fully switched to the new Apache design), has probably become the most desirable pickup body in our showroom. Finished in a bold blue, with deep metallic elements, this one has a true classic custom appearance. You'll note the big grille up front looks a lot better than it might have originally (most were painted, not chromed) and the bed is certainly nicer than new, with finished white oak boards and stainless steel strips that add to the overall bright appearance. And when it comes to brightwork, the 15-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels are huge standouts. But beyond all the flash is still the fundamental greatness that comes from a vintage Chevy pickup, with a straight steel body and its trim intact.
Inside is a nice blend of old and new worlds. The gray bucket seats are vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 50s, and the foldable center console has some handy storage, as well as a cup holder. The steering wheel is from a GMC Sierra, whose age seems to bridge the gap nicely between the late-model seats, and the vintage dashboard. More importantly, it's a much more comfortable setup than stock, and it allows for tilt steering. At first glance, this one might look like it just has an AM radio, but this is an upgraded FM receiver that allows for more modern tunes without ruining the vintage appearance. There's even the original owner's manual for the glovebox.
It wouldn't be a true custom build without a great looking engine, and this one does not disappoint. You'll be proud to lift the hood at car shows and showcase the 350 cubic-inch V8. It's been upgraded with plenty of shine, including the air cleaner, finned valve covers, radiator, and hoses. But beyond just appearance, this one has been rebuilt 200 miles ago with an Edelbrock Performer intake, Holley carburetor, mild camshaft, and stainless headers. The result is an ear catching sound out of the dual exhaust, and a nice amount of pep when you need it, but this pickup is so much more. It has some nice upgrades such as a Mustang II front independent suspension, and a four-speed overdrive automatic transmission. Add in the power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, and this vintage Chevy has the potential to be as good as any daily driver out there if its new owner decided that.
This one has the right amount of show and go to be the classic pickup you'll love to take out cruising almost anytime. Plus, it has all the right upgrades to make it a fine comfortable choice for a commute too. Call today!!
