This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 answers the question, what is the ultimate classic pickup. After all, it has a powerful V8 motor, a luxury leather interior, and all the right thoughtful upgrades (including overdrive.) And it's all wrapped in a build so fresh, there's less than 170 miles on it!
This project was only completed a few months ago, and they really took their time to get it right. You're looking at a frame-off restoration that took this truck down to bare metal before rebuilding this into a masterpiece of a pickup. The body has amazing panels, so you can crisply see details like the full-length crease that runs from the headlight, through the cab, and even continues on the fenders of the stepside bed. The Light Jade paint joins the Snow White on the bumper, grille, and wrapping around the back of the cab for a subtle two-tone. And while those are terrific '50s-style colors, the amount of light they radiate can only come from multiple layers of a butter-smooth clearcoat. This idea of classic style with a premium flair is seen all around the truck, including the American Black Walnut floor in the bed. And more than just a vintage machine, the lowered suspension, low profile tires, and aggressive stagger of the American Racing Torq Thrust wheels (16/18 inches front/rear) hint that this one is more than just a looker.
All the white accenting on the outside gets you ready for the full white leather interior. The seat is far suppler than anything you could get in the '50s, and the same goes for the custom door panels. And while the dash and headliner continue this pristine white, the carpeting and steering wheel remain black. It's still a pickup after all, and so you should never have to worry about dusting off your shoes or scrubbing your hands before going for a ride. And this one was absolutely meant to be enjoyed on the road. You have great for all-day comfort like power steering and the retro-style AM/FM stereo with an aux input for your iPod. And there's modern R134a air conditioning blowing nice and cold. Plus, the original gauge panel is now fitted with a much more informative Dakota Digital setup so you know everything that's going on under the hood.
With so few miles, the engine bay has a crisp and award-worthy presentation. Smooth color-matched walls, a matching air topper, polished components, hidden wires, and an overall tidy setup means you'll love showing off this 350 cubic-inch V8. More than just look great, this fresh crate motor was built for power. It's topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. Plus, you also have upgraded 76cc heads, Comp Cams camshaft, an aluminum Edelbrock intake, billet pulleys, and headers feeding the rumbling MagnaFlow H-pipe dual exhaust. This is also built to be an all-around great driver. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is good for quick kick-downs for power, and it also easily slips into overdrive cruising. And the aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans is there to help keep you running cool even in traffic with the A/C pumping. As you look at the undercarriage photos, you see more advantages of this new build, including an upgraded independent front subframe, fresh bushings, and front disc brakes.
