800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has all the right looks for a cool vintage truck. The Advanced Design style has matured into old-school tough Americana attitude that you can appreciate even if you're not a fan of NC State. And yes, those decals do come off if you just want a great two-tone classic.
This Chevy provides a real lesson in honesty. Over the years, plenty of classic trucks have been filled with more features than the factory ever intended. Instead, this one has just gone through good maintenance as it gets ready for its seventh decade. The body is nice and straight, and the red and the white have a nice gloss from a more recent investment. It's not being too showy, but instead just has a nice timeless style with the painted bumpers and grille. Of course, if you want to be a little more eye-catching, just leave the Wolfpack decals in place. The other upgrades to this Chevy keep it a useful pickup. For example the bed floor has had the wood replaced with metal and liner paint, so this classic can still pull real pickup duty. And the stylish red and white wheels also allow for more modern tires to be fitted.
The interior is clean, bright, and very vintage that's all part of the classic truck appeal. The tan on the seats, doors, and dash are all nicely coordinated, and the dark black carpeting means you never have to knock-off the dust from your shoes before going for a ride. So you get a great air atmosphere that's perfect for taking for a drive anytime. And when you grab the large factory steering wheel, the seep-grooved feeling instantly connects you with generations of workmen that came before you.
Under the hood, the 261 cubic-inch straight-six motor looks honest and complete right down to the bright blue block and oil bath air cleaner. But take a moment to dig deeper and see the right maintenance. A newer fuel pump, good wiring, and crisp hoses are part of a useful package. And the way this motor fires right up confirms this is a fine driving classic. The engine still produces the kind of torque that made these an industrial legend, and the three-on-the-tree manual transmission is always great for flexibility. Overall, going for a drive in this pickup is a fun experience thanks to the great rumble from a rhythmic motor that doesn't know how to quit.
This truck has an appeal that goes well beyond school pride. So you love a solid classic, don't let this Chevy slip away. Call now!
