A lot of great looking pickups run through our showroom, but very, very few of them are as nice as this 1951 Chevrolet 3100. Chevy's 3100 is one of the best-selling classic pickups on the market right now, and this one has incredible black paint, a smart running small block, and a jaw-dropping stance. If you've been looking for a custom pickup to add to your stable, this might be the perfect chance for you.

If you're going to paint it black, you need to invest the extra time to make it straight. Well this truck was built right, and the finish shows hours in the body shop with careful attention to detail on sanding and prepping the sheetmetal. Next, several coats of glossy black paint was sprayed and polished for a brilliant shine. Red and silver pin striping subtly accents the black paint. Chrome and stainless trim mostly remain in place, but the chrome bumper has been removed out back for a custom roll pan that sits below a sharp custom tailgate. That tailgate frames a bed that has been finished in custom, black diamond plate that is a different touch from all of the wood paneling we're used to seeing. And it's hard to ignore that lowered stance of this classic that sits on staggered chrome 5-spoke wheels, measuring 17'' up front and 20'' in the rear.

This truck is also comfortable, thanks to a nicely finished leather interior. The original bench has been scrapped and a split bench wrapped in soft, red leather and folding armrest is the feature of the cabin, it's easy to forget this is a classic pickup truck. The door panels house power window switches and are highlighted with more red leather, while a tilt column is topped by a custom red-trimmed steering wheel, which also helps with the upscale vibe. Dolphin gauges reside in a body-matched dash that is accented with more pin striping. Beneath that dash is an air conditioning unit to keep things cool, and the classic AM/FM radio has been fitted with an iPod/auxiliary input. It's a comfortable space to spend time in, whether you're trucking to the next cruise-in, or to the local hardware store.

As you'd expect, this Chevy still carries Chevy power, a 305 cubic inch V8 in this case. All the standard gear is here, from a Holley carburetor, to the finned valve covers and air cleaner. The engine bay is nicely finished with a glossy intake manifold, polished alternator, and red plug wires. The fire wall and inner fenders are covered in more of that deep black paint, providing a great backdrop for the bright bits on the engine. Front power disc brakes on the late model sub frame provide vastly improved stopping power, and aftermarket headers leading to a custom dual exhaust system give it an authoritative voice. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission makes highway cruising a breeze, and a 10-bolt rear end rounds out the powertrain, leaving you with no worries about reliability. Transferring the small block's power to the pavement is 215/45/17 front and 245/45/20 rear radials.

With an ever-growing amount of popularity and endless possibilities, the Chevrolet 3100 has solidified it's place in the classic car market. When we get customs in like this '51, they're quick to receive attention. If you fancy a cool and custom classic pickup, now is a great opportunity. Call today!
