For Sale: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1952 Chevrolet 3100 pickup is for the person who wants the ultimate time machine. It was restored to a clean '50s appearance so that you can appreciate every detail and really love the old-school style.


It will be hard to find a pickup that looks this nice and so authentically vintage. The way the panels fit on this pickup, let you know someone took the time in restoration to erase its workman past without erasing its historic appearance. The light blue has a great classic vibe, and the quality application has all the luster to give you plenty of nostalgia. When the paint looks this good, only the best brightwork will do. That's why the bumpers, bezels, badging, and hubcaps shine like mirrors. While you're looking at the wheels, you know you love the look of color-matched steelies with wide whitewalls. Not only does that white look great against the blue, but it's also matched on the subtle pinstripe surrounding the cab. More thoughtful details are revealed when you look at the truck bed. The fresh and bright lumber really adds to this truck's overall cheery personality.


The interior is still working-class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The exterior blue returns and now it's joined by a tasteful gray. The vinyl bench seat shows virtually no wear, and the same can be said for the door panels and rubber flooring. Pickups from the 1950s didn't come adorned with a long feature list, and that actually adds to this 3100's charm. In fact, the AM radio would instantly make this an upper-class pickup in the '50s. This is part of an era where its heater was a valued option because it gave you a chance to warm up on your way home from working the day in the outdoors. Those are the kinds of things you think about from this truck's big airy and open cabin. You get to connect to a bygone era every time you grab the three-spoke steering wheel and gaze at the large original gauge package.


The 235 cubic-inch inline six continues this trucks attractively honest presentation. In fact, we know you'll love showing off all the details, from the long blue valve cover to the classic wiring looms. While this is not an all-out speed machine, the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission ensures you are in complete control of the powerband. Besides, you don't buy a truck like this for all-out performance. Sure, a small block fits easily in the engine bay, but your largest enjoyment is watching others see you ride around town in this alluring package. And right now you get to do that with an intoxicating rhythmic chug that comes from true vintage truck motoring.


If you appreciate rolling history, then you how special this truck is. Don't miss you chance, call today!
