1950 Chevrolet 3100 Additional Info:

Is this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 5-window a great vintage pickup or a cool hot rod? Well, with serious V8 power and a real wood truck bed, this Chevy is the best of both worlds...and trucks of this vintage do not stay in our showroom long!This is the kind of body that draws attention from everyone. Plus, the desirable 5-window cab is something we all love. The butter-smooth burgundy paint highlights just how amazingly straight the panels are. It's the perfect complement to the custom elements like the lower suspension, sport mirrors, lighter fiberglass front fenders, and streamlined rear roil pan with integrated taillights. But there are also pieces that never go out of style. This tall truck has a huge silver streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumpers and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. The better-than-new classic appearance even extends to the wood truck bed, where the lumber and chrome have been rehabbed to make this blue collar hero look like it never saw a day of work. All of this combines to give the impression of a custom hot rod, and the clincher for this bad boy attitude comes from the iconic American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.Inside there is even more great custom work. The pillow-top split-bench is vastly more comfortable than the bouncy bench that came from the factory over half a century ago. Plus, the door panels, headliner, and carpeting match this tan for the appearance of a very thoughtful build. The driver gets a stylized two-spoke steering wheel. Beyond that is a set of Classic Instruments gauges that offer a similar pattern to the originals, but are much clearer and cleaner. In fact, the whole dashboard has been customized to be tastefully uncluttered. But, simplified does not mean this pickup lacks great features. Above the chrome dash panels is an AM/FM stereo, below it are the controls for the modern R134a air conditioning.The standard Thriftmaster six-cylinder engine that came with this Chevy 3100 would never do in a truck this cool. Instead, it has been upgraded to iconic small block power with a 350 cubic-inch V8. You can tell plenty was invested there with the smooth painted walls and all those polished components. And when you look beneath the shine, you'll find the performance substance of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and Hedman headers. One turn of the key, and you'll know this has some serious performance potential (of course, the throaty rumble from the dual exhaust helps, too.) But this is much more than just a unique pickup to show off on the custom car scene. For example, the aluminum radiator is the perfect piece to make sure this pickup runs cool even if you're stuck in commuter traffic. Plus, the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes makes for a truck that's good for all-day cruising. Complete with build receipts, this is the kind of classic pickup that sacrifices nothing. You can be a big hit at your next event without having to leave the air-conditioned comfort of your driver's seat. This kind of appeal means the truck won't be with us long. Call today!
