Everything about this 1954 Chevrolet 3100 five-window is bold. From
the screaming yellow paint, to how low that air ride suspension
gets, to the growl of the modern fuel-injected V8 - everyone
instantly knows this is a something special. As you dig into the
details, you'll find great cruising elements, too, on this fresh
This Chevy just gets cooler the longer you look at it. There's only 70 miles on this whole build, and so the yellow paint is so fresh that it has show-worthy shine. Plus, this tall truck has a huge silver chrome streak with pieces like its wraparound bumpers and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. Plus, the sunshade, side step plates, and desirable five-window cab really nail the best vintage elements from the 3100-series. We know you'll love taking this to car shows where you get to watch their jaws drop to the ground at the same time you lower the air suspension right down to the ground. In fact, to fit the larger wheels, gas tank, and other components under the lowered suspension, the truck bed had to be custom raised. It's a cool custom trick that most people won't notice right away because they're too busy just marveling at the real wood bed and 18-inch Ridler gray wheels.
The custom interior perfectly mixes original style with modern components. The bold exterior yellow returns on the dash and door trim, but now it's joined by plenty of black to get the right performance feeling. The upgraded seats now have modern bolstering and a cup holder center console for true long-haul comfort. There's also plenty of insulation with the matching black door panels, full carpeting, and headliner. This was built with the driver in mind, including grippy custom sports steering wheel on the chrome tilt column. Beyond that is a full set of upgraded Shark gauges. Plus, you're within easy reach of the air ride suspension controls, Lokar shifter, and upgraded AM/FM stereo with aux input and digital tuner.
You're going to be showing this one off to plenty of people, and so you're also going to love lifting the hood. After all, not only does it look great in its black and chrome presentation, but also few will be expecting a modern V8 powerplant. The 5.3-liter Vortec V8 is a great way to get fuel-injected muscle while remaining faithful to bow tie power. To get the most out of this modern V8, a modern four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive was added. Plus, you get great anytime driving features like power steering, power brakes with discs up front, and the modern low profile tires. More than just a good cruiser, you also get some nice performance upgrades, too. The exhaust has a throaty rumble to match the upgraded motor; the front suspension has been upgraded to a Mustang II-style independent unit; and the rear suspension has been fortified for extra power.
This is an award-worthy and fresh custom build that's also easy to drive to shows near or far. Such nicely finished vehicles like this rarely leave their makers, so you know you need to hurry if you want to take this one home. Call today!!!
