This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Is a terrific mix of vintage and upgrades. It's the kind of truck where people just can't help but take a closer look because there are so many great details. So it's time to dig into all of them...
The color is officially Orange Crush. It was obviously not on Chevy's palette in 1955, and so this modern color has a nice gloss and a radiant hue that loves to attract attention. And the 20-inch GTW alloys have a modern look that stylishly contrasts with the paint. This was the first year for the Chevy's Task Force pickup, and it's a design we all love. So it's great to see the body looking good with nice panel gaps, doors with authority, and a hood and tailgate that line up correctly. And speaking of the tailgate, the gray striping matches the inner bed walls. And the real wood on the bed floor coordinates with the custom side rails. This lumber even has a touch of the weathered look to contrast the glossy paint nicely and remind everyone a truck is still about an honest day's work.
Where the exterior features the bright orange with black wheels for accenting, the interior switches it around with a deep black and the exterior Orange Crush highlighting custom pieces. In fact, even the truck bed's gray returns on the sides and dash top (and the backlit gauges really ties these colors together.) So it's a thoughtfully coordinated total look. You can tell they really reveled in the details just by the presentation of the seat. The black with orange piping and inserts is quite striking. Plus, it has been upgraded for comfort with the excellent bolstering for all three places and headrests on each side. You get more worthwhile features, like power windows, proper seatbelts, and a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. And it's nice taking control of this pickup with the grippy wood-rimmed steering wheel and a tall floor shifter to rest your right hand.
Under the hood is a 235 cubic-inch inline-six. This is the kind of correct power for this Chevy, and so it's quite nice to have a period-correct block to go with it. There's some extra flair with the bright orange inner walls, shining valve cover, and matching air topper, but people will also just marvel at how honest the powerhouse is. The motor fires up confidently, and you get proper control over it with the four-speed manual transmission. Plus, power steering, modern tires, and upgraded power front disc brakes make this a nice cruiser.
This is a detail-oriented true classic, and so we know it also makes for an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
