Custom trucks are all about bringing something unique to the
party... and this freshly-built 1953 Chevrolet 3100 might just beat
them all. With its custom hot rod appearance, luxury leather & A/C
interior, performance small block V8 power, it will be hard to find
something more distinctive at twice the price.
This one sort of feels like a Model A hot rod pickup done at full-size Chevy proportions. And we absolutely love the result. The oval grille and blue-dot headlights on individual brackets give the first impression of the iconic deuce coupe. And the chopped cab and fat-fendered bed are pure hot rod cool. The same goes for the bright 15-inch wire wheels. And if that wasn't enough to get your attention, the whole custom setup was finished in an atomic shade of orange. But as the shape draws people in, they'll start to marvel at the details. The liner paint in the bed, the smooth stainless gas tank on display, and the tequila graphics all come together to make a very thoughtful build.
Inside there's still hints of old school charm left in this completely custom interior. The great orange from the exterior returns. Now it's joined by a tasteful tan with a premium diamond pattern on the headliner, door panels, and seats. And speaking of those buckets, the supple leather and modern bolstering give them all-day comfort. From behind the wood and steel sports steering wheel you get a great view of Omega Kustom readouts. Plus, your right hand will probably never leave the B&M sports shifter. But since this has a passenger seat, there is plenty of luxury features to keep you both happy, such as the upgrade to an AM/FM stereo w/aux input and CD changer and power windows. And there's even ice-cold R134a air conditioning to keep you cool while looking cool behind the wheel.
An engine this awesome deserves to always be on display for everyone to see. This 350 cubic-inch V8 screams power with its tall snorkel air grabber, ribbed valve covers, braided hoses, and the extra long run of the headers as they retreat below the body. And more than just look great, it has performance upgrades like dual Edelbrock four-barrel carburetors, Edelbrock hi-rise intake, and performance pulleys. And those aforementioned headers add even more power as they feed the rumbling side pipes. But as much as this is a mean power machine, there also is a more practical side. For example, you have an aluminum radiator with electric fan to keep this all running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping. Plus, you get a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. And it's all riding on a more modern Chevy S10 chassis to keep it feeling solid on the road.
Everything looks so new because there's less than 70 miles on this build... yes you've had day-trips longer than its total mileage! So when something so fresh, unique, loaded, and powerful is also priced so nicely, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call today!!!
