This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has all the right looks for a cool
vintage truck. The Advanced Design style has matured into
old-school tough Americana attitude that we all love. So when this
vintage spirit meets the right investment on this truck, you know
you're looking at a great deal for quite a nice price.
This Chevy is already exactly how you want it. The black paint has a nice gloss and shine, but it doesn't make this American workhorse look like a trailer queen. The same can be said for the real wood truck bed. The lumber here has been refinished so it's smooth and sealed, but it also still looks ready to earn its keep. All the pieces you love on these iconic Advanced Design pickups are present, like the tall polished grille and the new hood ornament. For a nice hint of added flair, there are new chrome bumpers front & rear, as well as the addition of a later Chevy icon - Corvette-style Rally wheels.
Inside, the investments were all about making this feel like a proper time capsule. The new side panels, new door handles, new window cranks, new headliner, new glove box insert, new door weather stripping, and a new rubber floor mat make this workman machine feel quite fresh. You'll sit on the taut bench seat, grab the three-spoke steering wheel, and feel the worn-smooth gearshift of the 4-speed manual transmission - this is true classic motoring.
Under the hood this truck continues its theme of honest showmanship with the right investments. Chevrolet's inline-six looks quite honest with its oil bath air topper, but you might want to take a closer look. Not only is this the larger 235 cubic-inch motor, but also this one is supported correctly with a rebuilt carburetor, upgrade to an alternator, new wiring harness, new gas tank (lines, fuel filter, etc.), and an upgraded Cherry Bomb exhaust. The brakes were completely serviced and there are new shocks - all done within the last 100 miles. You even have the grip of new modern radial tires with less than 50 miles on them. So while this one still provides that old-school feeling you're looking for, all the recent work means you get to enjoy it confidently.
This is the affordable icon that has seen all the right recent investments. That's why you know this is a deal you need to jump on right now. Call now!
