DRIVETRAIN FROM A 99 CAMARO, VERY CLEAN INSTALL, EXCELLENT PAINT, NO HASSLES!

This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup is one of the most impressive vehicles we've seen in a long time. Not just an impressive truck, but an impressive ANYTHING. With LS1 power, show-quality paint, and all the luxuries of a modern machine, it's the ultimate mid-50s hauler that really can do it all.

Out in the sun, this dark blue pickup shimmers and glows form within and our photo studio just can't quite capture the impressive quality of the paint. The things you can see, however, are the ultra-straight bodywork, the awesome gaps, and the deep shine, all of which are only possible with fairly large chunks of cash and a lot of time. The 1955 Chevy trucks were arguably as revolutionary as the cars, with modern looks that were stylish as well as practical, and this one doesn't remove one bit of the awesomeness that was built into every one. All the factory trim remains, including the egg crate grille, both bumpers, and the cool side emblems on the fenders, and all of it has been polished and refinished to really sparkle against the dark blue paint. Heck, they even retained the side-mounted spare tire which really makes the truck look tough. The bed is filled with lovely wood planks and stainless rub strips, so its hauling days are probably over, but the warm glow is just about impossible to resist.

Inside there are modern leather buckets from a late-model Ford Expedition and aside from some very minor wrinkling on the driver's seat, they look almost new. Matching gray door panels were created that give the Spartan Chevy a more finished feel and the contrasting blue carpets certainly help with the NVH. The factory dash was restored and filled with modern VDO instruments in a custom panel that looks like it belongs there while all the secondary knobs and controls remain intact. The original radio has been replaced by an AM/FM/cassette unit that fits neatly in the original slot and the factory heater controls now manage a Vintage Air HVAC system that uses reasonably subtle vents under the dash to keep things cool inside. A late-model GM tilt column with a custom billet wheel wrapped in blue leather gives it an OEM vibe inside, but no truck in 1955 was anywhere near this luxurious.

They weren't nearly this fast, either. Packing the full drivetrain from a 1999 Camaro Z/28, this pretty pickup seems to have the heart of a muscle car. The LS1 engine is both lightweight and durable, and its performance credentials are well-established. It's a neat fit in the 3100's engine bay and in many ways looks just like the factory might have done it. All the Camaro's accessories were included in the swap, including power steering and 4-wheel disc brakes. There's an A-arm front suspension replacing the original I-beam axle, so it rides and handles like a car, not a vintage truck, and out back a set of 3.23 gears in the Camaro rear end make it very highway-friendly. This truck also received the Camaro's 4L60E 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission plus a set of custom headers and a rumbling dual exhaust system. The stance is just right, neither too low nor to high, and the polished Torque Thrust wheels with 235/65/17 front and 245/65/17 rear Yokohama radials fill the fenders perfectly.

Trucks are red hot right now and if we had to choose just one to keep for ourselves, this 1955 Chevy would be the one. Come see it, you'll definitely be impressed. Call now!
