This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 has been upgraded for a true cruiser style. That means a bright look, a comfortable interior, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and a fuel-injected V8 heart. So you know it's the kind of classic truck built for you to enjoy in modern times.
The Mist blue paint is a great color for a pickup like this. It has the pastel kind of style that captures the optimistic 1950s nicely, and at the same time, there's a bright glow that makes sure people know it's a custom color. It has a good gloss that is complemented by the bright chrome bumpers and bezels. This is a truck that was made for easy driving, and so it has a great custom cruiser style with upgrades like the tinted windows and polished Riddler wheels with 18/20-inch front/rear stagger for a sporty stance. But what's really impressive is the overall thoughtfulness in the way this classic has been treated. The vintage sheet metal has a quality fit. And the grille is now color-matched, but it still keeps the correct white background. The bed was even custom-finished to match.
Just like the exterior, the interior mixes a vintage presentation with the right upgrades. The bench seat is an especially nice touch with nice padding and a comfy cloth insert. The door panels and headliner also have inserts to match. The steel dash keeps an art deco look and is even painted to match the exterior, but they also added the right driving upgrades. You have a retro sound AM/FM/cassette stereo with aux input for upgraded driving music, and there's even an A/C compressor so you have the foundation for installing air conditioning. The wood-rimmed Grant GT sports steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column to give you a nice view of the classic gauge package.
The engine bay has a clean look and cool details like the vintage Cadillac-style air grabber. But the powerhouse at the center is a much more modern unit. It's a 350 cubic-inch V8 with center-bolt heads and throttle body fuel injection. It's supported by good pieces, like an aluminum radiator, electric fan, and serpentine belt system. And as you look underneath, the updated chassis shows how this is a proper cruiser. You even have power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive.
Complete with title documentation, this is a custom truck that doesn't lose its vintage vibe. It's everything you want, and it's ready to cruise for the first person to grab this deal. Call today!!!
