It's great to get the patina look on this 1948 Chevrolet 3100. But as you dig deeper, this cool worn-in classic will charm you with all the additions like the V8 power and upgraded suspension.
We all love the idea of finding a classic Chevy pickup in a field where it has been lost to the decades. And this one is even an ultra-desirable 5-window cab! It really has that ideal patina look where nature has had as much to do with its style as the hallmark alligator hood. And while details like the iconic grille have the right look of age, upon closer inspection, you'll see the right investment in new components like the window seals. It's because they really took their time to create something special when this was restored in 2016. And more than just a cool classic, the lowered suspension and raised truck bed hint at more investments beneath the skin.
The orange paint inside has the same worn-in coolness of the exterior. And just like the outside, you can also tell they made a nice mix of vintage and new. After all, you get the classic dash and the classic gauges, but the setup is far more comfortable. The bench seat was recently recovered, and the carpeting has a nice freshness. Plus, you get a grippy Grant steering wheel, tilt column, floor shifter, and a full auxiliary readout trio. So the investments make for a nice driver.
This truck gets more of the right improvements as you look under the hood. While it was born before the V8 era, you can see this now has mighty small block power. The 350 cubic-inch motor inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and headers add more power while also contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. And this pickup makes enjoying this V8 easy with nice features like a three-speed automatic transmission and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to see a more modern frame with an upgraded independent front suspension and four-link rear. Plus, with power steering, front disc brakes, and modern tires, this patina classic is really a great anytime cruiser.
Patina always has a cool confidence to its look, but this one does it better with confident components under the skin, too. So don't miss this distinct and desirable Chevy. Call today!!!
