Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 has the desirable five-window style. So when you have an iconic presence like this, you really like to be presented as a true classic with just the right hints of better cruiser features.
We love these post-war pickups in a forest-like shade of green. It just seems like the right mix of a business-ready paint with just a touch of optimism. That's especially true with this application that has just the right gloss to show off the curvy classic venders and alligator hood. So it has that look where you want to paint the name of your farm on the side. The body lines have the look of quality, and the really wood in the truck bed has an attractive stain sealing in the gloss. GM's Rally wheels are an obvious upgrade. However, they don't look out of place, because the bumpers, grille, and headlight bezels all have the bright look of a newer investment.
The desirable five-window cab means you get more light inside, and so it's great to see a thoughtfully done interior. The bench seat has been more recently recovered in a vivid green. And we especially like how the white piping coordinates with the cream on the arm rests, steering wheel cap, and dash trim. The atmosphere is pure vintage, and so you get the kind of airy cab you want in a true classic truck. But even pickups of this era had a heater, and so you'll appreciate this upgraded unit every time you feel like going for a crisp Sunday morning drive.
The 3100-series trucks famously relied on the Chevy's trusty inline-six motor. That tradition continues here, but with some driver-ready style. First, this is a 235 cubic-inch engine, which is the larger of the two displacements available in 1951. It has the right maintenance on the fundamentals, including newer hoses, belt, wires, and plugs. And the addition of a 12-volt electrical system and alternator make it nicer to start and run. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission gives you the classic feeling going down the road. But those upgraded wheels have wide modern tires to let you hold the road better.
You're looking at the ideal vintage setup that really wants to go for a Sunday drive. A driver-ready five-window Chevy is always desirable, so don't miss out. Call today!!!
