800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 is a cool patina pickup, and the lowered stance tells you there\'s more here than just a workman attitude. And everything from the small block power under the hood to the bucket seat leather interior proves that this has been upgraded to deliver a total package pickup.
The way the patina wears into the blue paint and all the worn-in details give this Chevy an instant respect that makes the \"mature\" look of a patina pickup so appealing. There\'s plenty more character to this worn-in style, like the home latch on the hood, the Bel Air hood ornament, and the touch of char on the real lumber in the truck bed. But even with all this workman appeal, they are also the right hints at the true cruiser nature. It\'s in the clean white grille, matching bumpers, hot rod side mirrors, and blue dot tail lights. Plus, those modern 20-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels and the lowered stance hint at the updated nature beneath the skin.
The interior continues the truck\'s authentic feel in places like the door panels and dash. They have an aged-in look that\'s more about being a display for the patina theme. But the real allure is the upgrades that give this a truly comfy cruiser feel. You get modern bucket seats that have terrific bolstering for all-day comfort. They are finished in supple leather, and you can even hook them up to a power source if you want power seats. The wood-rimmed steering wheel, tall floor shifter, and upgraded auxiliary readouts make for a solid driving experience.
Your first look under the hood shows more of this worn-in honesty on the inner fender walls. But then you start to notice the bright heart in the middle, and there\'s no mistaking the extra flair when someone invests nicely in the motor. This 327 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and aluminum intake. It exhales with a sweet sound from the dual exhaust and glass pack-style mufflers. Plus, there are nice supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan. The strong powerhouse gets you thinking about cruising this patina pickup. So upgrades like the independent front end, TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with front discs will get your mind going about how far you can quickly drive this workhorse.
This has a look we all want, and the solid driving attitude we all desire, so you know a well-done package like this won\'t stay long at this price. Call now!
