This 1954 Chevrolet 3100 is a vintage pickup that wants to be a
bow-tie muscle machine. After all, with small block power, a Camaro
front suspension, and a color brighter than Hugger Orange, it's a
bold standout classic offered at quite a nice price.
This is one of the most iconic shapes in pickups. Chevy's Advanced Design would be retired in 1955, and so the company was giving it a proper sendoff. That's why the 1954 trucks already come with desirable upgrades like the one-piece windshield and a distinct front end, And it's also why why the '54 is one of the best pickups to customize. Finished in a bold orange with deep luster and shine, this one makes a great first impression. In fact, this color looks so good, you'll find it in the details like on the grille and on the wheels surrounded by the two-piece brightwork package. Plus, there are other great custom pieces like the gas filler integrated into the rear fender and the fresh lumber in the truck bed. It all comes together to create a total package that instantly tells everyone this is a unique pickup.
Inside the custom theme continues. It starts with cloth bucket seats that are far more comfy than anything that came out of the '50s. The gray on the seats nicely matches the carpeting, headliner, door panels, and even the updated steering wheel for a quality uniform appearance. Plus, the exterior orange returns on the dash to get you excited about motoring. This holds all the right upgrades, including a full AutoMeter & Sunpro gauge package and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for the most modern music players.
The standard Thriftmaster six-cylinder engine that came with this Chevy 3100 would never do in a truck this cool. Instead, it was upgraded to iconic small block power with a 350 cubic-inch V8. It was expertly installed, and there is even room left for a little flair with the bright valve covers and air topper. The V8 inhales deeply thanks to a four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And it exhales with authority out of the dual exhaust. Out on the street, this one feels nice thanks to a Camaro independent front end that also includes upgrades like power steering, a sway bar, and front disc brakes. Add in a three-speed automatic transmission, and this is one easy cruising vintage pickup.
Here's an iconic custom classic that's boldly presented and priced quite right. This Chevy 3100 has a lot to offer, and that's why we know it will be leaving us soon. Don't miss out, call today!
