This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 has a great vintage style everywhere from the two-tone paint to the desirable five-window cab. And you'll be hard-pressed to find another vintage accessory to add. It makes for one of the most authentic and head-turning '50s machines you can get your hands on right now.
This truck is made to be a true classic cruiser, and that feeling starts with the paint. The two-tone red and white has a cool sense of style where there's the right mix of gloss and again. So it has the same appeal as that old Coca-Cola machine you've just been begging that old service station to sell you. The real wood in the truck bed gives you the same well-aged feeling. Plus, this one also has a cool look with nearly every period-correct accessory in place. In front there are spotlights ahead of the grille and eyelids over the headlights. As you move further down the truck, you'll see the adjustable windshield sunshade and iconic whitewalls. There's even a spotlight mounted on the driver's side (currently for display-only.) In the rear, there are bright bed rail caps and blue-dot tail lights. And we especially like the touch of black seen throughout. So the pinstripe around the cab and tailgate is united with the black front bumper base and black full running boards. The total impression is a true classic with thoughtful distinction.
The desirable five-window cab means you get more light inside, and so it's an opportunity to see even more vintage charm. You'll enjoy the little things like the column-mounted metal fan, AM radio (for display), and the classic heater unit under the dash. The whole package likes to feel authentic - everywhere from the bouncy bench seat to the large steering wheel with the ideal worn feeling where you can truly feel this truck's history.
The engine bay follows the lead of the exterior and it gives you classic style with period-correct upgrades. The 3100-series trucks famously relied on Chevy's trusty inline-six motor, and that tradition continues here with the year-correct 216 cubic-inch block. But those who know these Chevys will love the additions. After all, not many people know about the Wayne Manufacturing finned aluminum valve covers, but they have a cool history from this era. And the Fenton exhaust headers are a treat to see because they give this inline-six a true dual exhaust. This one really gives you the classic truck feel, right down to the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
You're looking at a very well-done original style Chevy truck that also has the right well-integrated upgrades for a fun weekend cruiser. A total package like this won't stay available for long. Call today!!!
