Chevrolet 3 Window Pickup 1955 Description

So it turns out that trucks make pretty cool rods, s this 1955 Chevrolet so ably demonstrates. All the usual tricks work here, nd with a strong-running 350 under the hood, hat you get when you're done is a fast, un, nd surprisingly practical hauler that will attract a ton of attention wherever it goes.First of all, he bright red paint is an eyeball magnet that grabs your attention and really emphasizes the all-new look of the '55 Chevys. You can forget being subtle and staying under the radar with this one, nd once you stop expect to be the center of attention, ecause it looks like a million bucks. The bodywork, hich was already dramatic right out of the box, ooks even better when it's been smoothed, haved, nd buffed like this truck's skin has. The paint is fairly recent, o it has an awesome gloss and few signs of use, nd really makes the truck look spectacular. Some of the original trim is gone, ut the stuff that remains provides a great contrast and has been beautifully re-chromed, ncluding the grille, oor handles, nd those gorgeous bumpers that are directly descended from the passenger car lineup to give the '55 Chevy trucks a much more finished look. The bed is working class, ith a simple plywood floor, ut that means it's ready to work as much as play.The interior has been given a full makeover from stock as well, nd the working-class accommodations have been replaced by a pair of bucket seats that give it a sporting attitude. Bucket seats are a natural fit in the 3100's cab and they wear custom seat covers that are durable and low-maintenance. Gray carpet fills the floor and keep it from being too dark, nd the color-matched door panels and dashboard have been as nicely finished as the bodywork. The original gauge panel is still in place, lthough a trio of Sunpro gauges under the dash monitors the engine's vitals. Finishing it off is a wood-rimmed steering wheel atop a tilt column, o it's easy to get comfortable.A built 350 cubic inch V8 has been nestled into the engine bay and runs superbly. It isn't necessarily detailed for show, ut the small block is a neat fit and the added cubes over the original 1955 powerplant make this truck feel downright quick around town. It's got the usual 4-barrel carburetor and long-tube headers, ut it's docile enough to drive every day and never gets grumpy. The blue engine enamel is likely designed to emulate the period Chevy engines and it's a different look under the hood compared to the usual bright orange. Underneath, here's a trick Flowmaster exhaust system with dumps just ahead of the rear wheels and sounds fantastic, hile a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission spins a 10-bolt rear end. Power steering makes it easy to handle around town but doesn't detract from the authentic old truck feel going down the road. Shiny chrome wheels wear fat 235/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear blackwall radials that fill the big fenders just right.A neat truck with a lot of potential and a great look, his one is ready to enjoy or could be the foundation of something truly spectacular. Either way, t this price, t won't last long. Call today!
