NICELY RESTORED 3100, CORVETTE 327 V8, DISC BRAKES, TURBO 350, 10 BOLT, COLD AC

When you want a vintage pickup, you should gauge value in the details. That's why we love this 1955 Chevrolet 3100. It comes with great paint in a mature hue, nice modern upgrades, and the V8 heart of a classic Corvette.

Just one look and you can see a lot of work has gone into this pickup (we're got plenty of restorations photos, too.) The Butternut Yellow paint looks is the kind of earthy pastel that could have come from the 50s, but it has the luster of a professionally applied modern clearcoat. The shine of the bumpers, badges, bezels, handles and all other trim shine like new mirrors. There is even a bit of attitude added to this truck with a lowered stance on American Racing wheels. But even with these refreshed and upgraded items, the truck doesn't lose its original personality. This model series was the beginning of the wraparound windshields, and it's known for the extra flair in the fenders (especially the rear). The final touch is the real wood truck bed with the correct alternating planks between body matched metal strips. It hides under a full metal topper.

The tailored feel of this truck really is raised another notch just by stepping inside. The snakeskin vinyl seat sets the tone for this truck's aggressive attitude. Even the door panels get a cool custom touch, too. This pickup comes loaded with an AM/FM/cassette stereo, tilt steering wheel, and R-134a air conditioning. Your left hand gets a later model Chevy steering wheel, and your right one grabs the B&M sports shifter. But even with all the upgrades, this one still unmistakably feels very vintage. For example, the original fan-style gauge cluster is a great piece to keep because it has the same cool character that was being added to Chevy's now-iconic 1955 passenger cars.

Lift the hood to find a 327 cubic-inch V8. The tidy appearance and silver elements make this present very nicely, but there's even more to this motor's story. You get to tell all your friends that your pickup is Corvette powered with this mid-60s small block. This one has been upgraded with a four-barrel carburetor, fuel pump, electric fan, and rumbling glass pack dual exhaust. So now the V8 is both powerful and reliable. After this enhanced horsepower passes through the TH350 three-speed automatic, it gets the power to the ground via 10-bolt rear end borrowed from a Camaro. For your driving convenience, this pickup has an independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes.

This Chevy combines vintage looks with modern conveniences for one very cool package. The best part is you can pick up this custom truck up for a lot less than it would cost for you to build it. Call today!!!
