614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1956 Chevrolet 3200 big back window truck is all about offering you extra... extra power from the LS1 V8, extra duty of the rarer 3200 long bed, and extra stares from the added stance/style.
This truck deserved the custom treatment. After all, it has two instantly distinguishable exterior features. First, it's a 3200-series and that means you have the rarely-seen long bed. Not only does it look extra cool on a stepside truck, but the forward-leaning stance of this truck just seems to elongate it even further. This is also a big back window truck, and that wraparound rear glass seems to have almost a hint of blue to go with the paint. The blue has a good style, and it does show some signs of enjoyment over the years. But what's really cool is how this is a canvas for both the full custom pinstriping and the ghost flames burning down the side. Alloy wheels, dual exhaust tips, and real oak in the truck bed are all part of a full package that makes up a unique and custom machine.
The custom style continues inside. You have been upgraded to later model sports bucket seats, and yours even power adjusts to the ideal position. There's a cup holder center console in-between. Keen eyes will recognize that these were both borrowed from a fourth-gen Camaro, and that hints at the power within (more on that in a moment.) There are also power windows, a retro-style AM/FM radio, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again. You get a wood and chrome sports steering wheel. And beyond that is a Dakota Digital gauge package that glows in a cool blue that coordinates with the colors of this truck.
The tidy walls of the engine bay do a terrific job of funneling your attention to the modern motor in the middle. This is a 5.7-liter LS1, and we love these fuel-injected V8s for being both powerful and versatile. This one was installed correctly and it has all the right components. It includes an aluminum radiator to help keep you running cool, and a Flowmaster dual exhaust to give this truck the right street machine growl. Because this truck is made to be a true cruiser, you have features like a Mustang II-style front end, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. And the upgrade to a four-speed automatic transmission means highway-friendly overdrive.
This is the distinct long bed and big back window pickup with some serious driver appeal. Call today!!!
