1954 CHEVROLET 3100 5-WINDOW Chevrolet achieved postwar pickup-truck success with its Advanced Design series, with only evolutionary improvements from 1947 until 1954, when the lineup saw engineering improvements, its only major redesign ahead of the coming Task Force era. The 3100 pickup truck featured an all-new open grille and one-piece windshield, along with a longer and lower-mounted body and full-length floorboards topped by what Chevrolet called its Comfortmaster cab. This 1954 Chevrolet 3100-series 5-window pickup combines the best of 1954 with what was futuristic, a small-block Chevrolet V-8 horsepower under the hood. The original Thriftmaster 6-cylinder engine was upgraded to a dressed-for-success 350 CI high-performance Chevrolet V-8. Deep breathing comes by way of a high-flow air filter and Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on a chromed intake manifold. Finned valve covers and chrome-finished engine accessories make for an engine that sparkles when you pop the hood. The transmission was upgraded to an automatic unit for easy driving and hands-free power delivery to the Camaro-sourced rear axle. Suspension and braking were brought into modern times with a Speedway Motors Mustang II independent front suspension with power disc brakes and power rack-and-pinion steering. The cab and bed were painted in an eye-catching copper, and a new chrome-plated front grille, bumpers and headlight surrounds accent the 1954 Advance Design. Inside the Comfortmaster cab is a leather bucket-style bench seat with a center armrest and the added comfort and control by way of air conditioning and a chrome-plated tilt steering column. New glass makes for clear vision and plenty of light. The finished oak-wood bed was fitted with polished stainless-steel strips and mounts. The updated Chevrolet truck rides on Rev 100 5-spoke chrome wheels with staggered aspect-ratio radial tires for a classic, raked-forward street stance. 5-window cab 350 CI V-8 engine Automatic transmission New chrome grill and bumpers Chrome Rev wheels Air conditioning Power steering Power brakes Speedway Motors Mustang independent front suspension Camaro rear end New glass Chrome tilt steering column Oak bed Stainless steel strips and mounts ***If you are viewing this on Facebook Marketplace, be sure go to our website to view all photos.
