1954 Chevrolet Other Pickups -- Additional Info:

Talk about a great looking vintage truck! This 1954 Chevrolet 3100 has been very ably restored, leaving it with a sharp exterior that features one seriously impressive paint job and an appearance that'll convince you it's ready to report for duty. There's been no sacrifice to authenticity in the process - it also carries the correct engine (if not the original) under its hood that's running in top form. Nostalgia rarely comes calling in such a... clean, precise looking package. The two tone, green and black paint scheme this '54 carries strikes a great balance, offering a subtle custom vibe that's still very much in keeping with its vintage identity. The paint has a great shine - it really comes alive in the sun, but even in shelter its healthy glow is obvious. New period correct bumpers in front and back combine with new headlight casings up front, as well as new badging and rubber seals all the way around, to add to this classic truck's vitality. Draw closer and you'll see the evidence that its rugged construction has done a great job of defying the forces of both time and gravity - more than 60 years after this 3100 first saw the light of day, it still sports impressively straight alignment, so you'll find nice even gaps surrounding the doors, and hood. The painted front grille and chrome exhaust tips extending out from just below the rear bumpers are a couple of very effective modifications that really set this truck apart from the crowd. The interior retains a vintage appearance and has been thoroughly refurbished for a great look. Both the bench seat and matching door panels sport tan vinyl surfaces that are free from any discoloration and really don't show much wear at all. Just in front of the plushly padded steering wheel, the dash area looks great, also featuring the same look it had upon leaving the factory that's benefitted mightily from the well-applied green paint on its steel surface, while the original gauges maintain their places inside the instrument cluster. In the world of vintage trucks, proper prepping and finishing of the wooden planks lining the bed area is a finishing touch that is often done half-heartedly or skipped entirely, but it's well covered here. The planks in this case are in optimum form, sitting level and securely fastened between steel reinforcements painted to match the exterior. Sitting underneath the hood is a period-correct, and believed to be original, 235 cubic inch inline 6 cylinder engine and it still carries a proper 2 barrel carb on top that sits just underneath a compact chrome air cleaner. Just to the side, a quintet of orange air horns sound out the signature notes of "Dixie" with a push of the button on the dash. The engine is in strong operating condition - its choke works just as intended and, once it's warmed up you'll hear a very pleasing note make its way through its dual exhaust. This vintage powerplant teams with a "3 on the tree" manual transmission that's shifting securely and the electrical system has been converted to modern, 12 volt configuration, so you'll have no issues embarking on the first of many journeys to come just as soon as this Chevy gets home. This sharply restored truck rolls on a set of stock 15" steel wheels wrapped with Cooper Cobra Radial GT tires. This 1954 Chevrolet 3100 features a combination of great vintage looks and solid, road-ready condition that make it a "must see" for any classic truck enthusiast. Call today!
