800 Derita Road, Ste. A
1952 Chevrolet 3100 5 Window Restomod has an awesome color-coordinated look, fuel-injected V8 heart, and a full custom A/C interior. But those are just the headlines. As you dig into all the details, you're going to discover one of the most thoughtful and meticulous builds around. In fact, don't forget to check out the custom trailer, too.
We have $21k in receipts for the paint alone, which is more than some people spend on their entire restoration. But that kind of investment pays off, because this has the kind of pristine gloss and depth that instantly sets it apart. They expertly shaved much of the trim on this pickup, and so the light rolls evenly and uninterruptedly across the super-straight body panels. This modern look of quality nicely molds with the overall vintage look. After all, this still delivers the best in classic elements, like the iconic five-piece chrome grille, real wood-truck bed, and desirable five-window cab. Not only do we absolutely love the two-piece wheel trim and whitewall tires, but also pay attention to the tasteful blue steelie wheels (they're part of what makes this truck so thoughtfully coordinated.) While other classics will make you take a second vehicle if you want to spend all day at the car show, this one not only has a solution, but it will probably help you win awards, too. The sale comes with a custom vintage Coca-Cola cooler turned into a color-matched trailer. There's even a stainless steel grill with custom mount, so you get to bring the party with you everywhere.
The touch of blue on the wheels get you ready for the full blue custom interior. This still keeps a hint of the classic style with a bench seat, but now it's finished in supple leather and suede. Plus, the contoured bolstering and removable armrest cup holder console deliver a bucket-like level of comfort whenever you want. The dash still retains a classic look it now houses upgrades like R134a air conditioning and a flip open AM/FM/CD/XM radio with GPS and Bluetooth. Plus, there are more desirable features, like power windows, a tilt steering column, and full armrest custom door panels. And the sporty wood-rimmed steering wheel and full Classic Instruments gauge package lets you know you'll love what's in the engine bay, too.
You're going to be showing this one off to plenty of people, and so you're also going to love lifting the hood. After all, not only does it look award-worthy with the tidy white and plenty of polish, but also few will be expecting a modern V8 powerplant. The 5.7-liter LS1 V8 is a great way to get fuel-injected muscle while remaining faithful to bow tie power. To get the most out of this modern V8, a modern 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive was added. Plus, you get great anytime driving features like rack & pinion power steering, front disc brakes, and a modern tread on those classic whitewalls. And everywhere you arrive, you'll love putting a mirror under this custom. The frame has that same cool blue color, and it looks bold against the white painted body (see, we told you this was a thoughtful build!) And you'll also notice more great pieces, like the tubular A-arm front suspension w/adjustable coilovers, a Ford 9-inch rear, and traction bars.
The sale comes complete with books documenting this custom's creation, including build receipts, service manuals, and restoration photos. This is the kind of amazing build that would take you a decade to do yourself. So this is the rare opportunity to skip right to the fun of owning and showing. But you can only do that tomorrow if you call today!
