Fresh off its custom build, this 1951 Chevrolet 3100 takes the
smooth lines of GM's Advance Design pickup and gives it a hardy
dose of modern sleekness. And while this classic is irresistible to
show off, great upgrades like the powerful V8, overdrive
transmission, and fully independent suspension make it irresistible
to drive, too.
The paint makes an instant impression. With less than 260 miles on this full custom build, you still see every ounce of investment that went into this striking color. The metallic blue has an amazing depth and the light rolls off the shine with near perfection thanks to serious time and effort during the restoration into making the panels likely better than any pickup you've seen before. Competing for this level of shine are the mirror-like bumpers and iconic five-bar grille. Everywhere you look, you can tell there was an extra investment in this truck to make it top notch - from the rubber moldings, to the fresh wood in the bed. And crystal-clear glass is particularly important on a desirable five-window pickup. But this is more than just a stunner. The lowered stance and Raceline polished billet alloys with an aggressive 18/20 inch front/rear stagger are a hint that this was built for performance, too.
The interior has a true artist's touch that could win awards all on its own. The two-tone tan and brown leather looks like a top-of-the-line modern truck. That's thanks to details, like insignia trim on the seats, custom center console, and smooth leather on the dash. And in this case, looking awesome also offers terrific comfort. Those dual bucket seats have plenty of bolstering for all-day comfort. Plus you have great features, like ice-cold air conditioning, power windows, power locks, power steering, cup holders, and an anti-theft system. The stereo is a modern AM/FM/CD/XM unit with Bluetooth. It's hidden away in the center console, and the subwoofer speaker system is tucked away nicely, too! You'll love slipping behind the leather-wrapped chrome steering wheel and gazing at the gauges. They offer a hint of classic style by utilizing the factory openings, but now they shine like jewels.
With a build so awesome thus far, you know they made sure the engine bay would attract a crowd, too. The color-matched ultra-smooth firewall and inner fenders really funnel all your attention to the V8 power within. And you can tell they spent a small fortune on polished components alone. And when you look beyond the style you'll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch motor that has been enhanced with a Holley dual-feed four barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and ceramic coated headers. Plus, this fresh setup has all the right supporting components, including a Tru Trac serpentine belt system, Powermaster alternator, and a walker aluminum radiator w/electric fan (to help keep you running cool even in traffic w/ the A/C running.) This is truly a fine driver, right down to the four-speed automatic w/overdrive. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you're going to spot even more amazing upgrades like the fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. Of course when you're looking at the underside, you also see award-worthy presentation that will have you putting a mirror under this one wherever you park it.
Rarely do you find such a fresh build that has all the best in driving features and is also ready to take home trophies. So if you demand the best of everything, call today!
