FRAME-OFF RESTORED, INVESTMENT QUALITY, 1949 CHEVROLET 3100 PICK UP TRUCK, READY TO SHOW AND GO!!
AN ORIGINAL, ALL STEEL BODY, CALIFORNIA ’49 CHEVY 3100 PICK UP WITH OVER $40,000 SPENT ON A VERY HIGH END RESTORATION!

Very high end restoration done about 9 years ago on a rust free, original California Vineyard truck. It is believed to have most, if not all,of its original steel body panels and even though the restoration is now almost 10 years old it looks like it could have been finished yesterday!!! Paint is show quality and the color is a Cream color that really looks period correct. The body is truly in near flawless condition but to be safe lets say there may be an extremely small rock chip or two that I may have missed. Every emblem, and piece of chrome along the body has been replaced. Bumpers are new. The spare tire holder under the bed was replaced with new. The oak wood bed is absolutely gorgeous and was replaced at the time of restoration. Running boards were replaced. All of the glass looks fantastic with just a small minor scratch in the drivers side door glass. As you will see in the pictures the body on this truck is very close to being a perfect 10 and is sure to be a hit at all of the car shows and cruise-ins you may attend.

Complimenting the gorgeous cream colored exterior is an equally nice cream and orange interior that again combines originality with some slight custom touches. Door panels have a great Chevy Bowtie embossed in them. Original style bench seat has been custom done in a gorgeous 2-tone color and is extremely comfortable. Dash looks extremely original and a Custom Auto Sound Vintage looking stereo has been added to offer some modern tunes without cutting the dash. Speakers are mounted inside the speaker grille. All of the gauges function correctly although the speedometer is reading fast and may need a different speedo gear to correct this. Turn signals, lights and emergency brake all function correctly. Steering wheel looks brand new. Battery is still located under the passenger side floor mat. Manual shifter is located within easy reach of the driver and you will note it is a 5-speed! The interior of this truck truly looks almost brand new.

Under the hood of this gorgeous truck is a completely rebuilt 235 6-cylinder with an Offenhauser intake and dual carburetor set-up. Under 8500 miles on this drivetrain as the odometer was set to zero at the time of restoration. The upgrade from the original 216 motor to the 235 is quite common on these restorations and this 235 really pulls strong and provides plenty of power for todays driving. Mated to a super smooth shifting 5-speed manual transmission this drivetrain is set up for any type of trip you may plan on taking. You will have no problems cruising at 70 mph on the highway and will get great gas mileage at the same time. Fuel tank was replaced with a 17 gallon tank in the stock placement. This truck fires up every time…just turn the key, pump the pedal once, and push the start pedal and she is ready to drive. All new wiring harnesses and a new heater box was installed. Engine bay was detailed out nicely for show purposes as well. Front disc brakes were added for a little easier stopping and this old truck really steers, handles, and stops amazingly well…it is an absolute joy to drive!! Driven slightly over 8000 miles since the restoration 10 years ago, the undercarriage still shows extremely well. As mentioned we will include a book of receipts, a shop manual, original Black California Plates, and an original owners manual to the new owner.

Asking price is $32,900 and we will listen to serious offers. Serious buyers can call 770-359-8400.
