Chevrolet 3100 1951 Description

We won't even pretend for a moment that this is like any other pickup you've seen before. This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 five-window pickup has left its workhorse roots behind with all sorts of great features like the lowered suspension, subtle front flames, modern A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, and an updated chassis. This one was not built to haul wood... It was built to turn heads.This Chevy just gets cooler the longer you look at it. You could get light blue from the factory in '51, but would have never been such a vivid color. Of course what really sets it apart is the white-hot flame custom paint that is coming off the alligator hood. But that's not the only part that grabs your attention up front. This tall truck has a huge silver streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumper and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. And you'll love showing off other original style pieces like the cool five-window cab. But where this pickup really draws a crowd is in the custom work. The American Racing Torq Thrust wheels, lowered stance, lockable flush bed cover, and Corvette rear light panel that hides the practical trailer hitch - all this and more come together to give you a striking first impression.The tan interior perfectly mixes original style with modern components. It starts with the bucket seats that are vastly more comfortable than anything that came out of the 1950s. Plus, they match nicely with the paneling, carpeting, headliner, and even the custom tan and chrome steering wheel. The dash carries that great exterior blue for a cool uniform appearance, and you get to look out over a full set of Faria classic style gauges. This Chevy has been updated for serious comfort to include power windows, power locks, and an AM/FM stereo that also have an aux input so you can plug in your most modern music player. But the feature that will easily make this your favorite ride is the ice-cold air conditioning. And to make sure that you'll stay cool for yeas to come, it's running modern R134a and recently had a new compressor installed.Under that flame job hood is a hot little small block. The 305 cubic-inch V8 is believed to be pulled out an IROC Camaro, and sure sounds like a winner thanks to the dual exhaust w/cutouts. We do know it has been rebuilt and an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor has been added. The whole execution is designed to draw crowds with the glossy blue paint of the engine bay looking great with the shiny air grabber and valve covers. But more than showing off, this pickup was really made for driving. It has great upgrades like the Fatman Mustang II independent front suspension, power steering, and 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. There are even four-wheel disc brakes and the grip of BF Goodrich gForce Super Sport tires. So yes, this classic Chevy feels pretty modern on the road.Complete with build and maintenance receipts, you're looking at a pickup with a custom vintage look on the outside, a comfortable A/C interior, and a true handler on the streets. Yes it's the total package that's ready to leave here at one irresistible price. Call today!!
