This 1947 Chevrolet 3100 5-Window is a cool custom cruiser. You see it in the two-tone, stance, V8 power, custom suspension, and more. And this all makes for quite an attractive package on an already attractively-priced icon.
This truck has a brighter face with a fresh look to the chrome front bumper, five-piece grille, and crystal clear headlights. Adding into brightwork are the 15 inch Ridler wheels with meaty rear tires that give this such a nice stance. You'll also appreciate they gave the truck a smoother look with custom color flush door handles, a bed tonneau cover, and a flush rear roll pan. Blue-dot tail lights and wide side exhaust tips complete this custom look. So there's plenty more to notice than just the ultra-desirable five-window cab setup. And since this is such a cool cruiser, the paint package was upgraded to an attractive red and silver two-tone. It's the kind of finish that instantly announces this one is custom but it never gets too fancy to keep you from driving it. And the whole point of this custom is to be a cruiser.
The full black interior is quite clean and custom. The smooth dash and smooth door panels are simple but stylish. And the bench seat is a classic Chevy unit that also offers power adjustment. It makes for the right kind of driver-ready package. And that feeling continues with the right upgrades like a sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and bright white backlit Auto Meter gauges dominating the dash.
The engine bay has an attractive and tidy style with the smooth red inner walls. At the center is hardy small block power. This is a later model Chevy 305 cubic inch V8 with center bolt valve covers. It's built with the right updates you want, like a Holley four-barrel carburetor, HEI electronic ignition, aluminum radiator with electric fan, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. As you look underneath, you can instantly see how unique the build is. This classic truck is riding on a classic sedan frame. So the bed space is also currently taken up by the more comfortable triangulated four-link rear end. It makes for quite a unique setup that really makes this a driver. There is some updating that you will likely want to do to have a proper comfortable cruiser, and it might be fun to craft a custom wood bed over the frame. But what it represents from day one is a true custom style with plenty of potential to be an even better cruiser. Plus, you have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and modern touring tires as part of an easy driving package.
This truck has the iconic five-window style and a unique setup made to be an even better cruiser. So if you're looking for driving distinction, you found it here. Call today!!!
