For Sale: 1952 Chevrolet 3100 in Charlotte, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This clean Chevy is a head-turning stunner that mixes hot Vortec power with a tough 4L80E 4-speed and choice aesthetics. And if you're ready to feel the Spring breeze behind the wheel of a storied Detroit legend, it's a chance to turn your lust worthy dreams into fantastic reality!

CLASSIC GOOD LOOKS

The beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up restoration, this slick 3100 wraps custom white 2-stage around a desirable 5-window body that's both worldly and classic. At the front of the truck, a polished grille hangs clear parking lamps between a shaved hood, halo headlights and a polished bumper. Behind that hood, a split, stainless-trimmed windshield leads a smoked greenhouse, which rolls 1-piece side glass behind polished RainGear wipers and color-keyed hot rod mirrors. Under those mirrors, a "CHEVROLET LS2" branded profile centers polished door handles above stainless-trimmed running boards. Behind those handles, a chainless, "CHEVROLET" branded tailgate protects a massaged bed that's been stained, coated in polyurethane and trimmed in stainless. And at the bottom of that bed, polished LED taillights illuminate a custom roll pan and a second polished bumper.

MODERN GM POWER

Lift the rolled hood and you'll find a potent, 6.0 liter Vortec small block that twists hearty 11 to 1 compression into 427 dyno-proven horsepower and 365 lb./ft. of tire-splitting torque. Up top, a polished air cleaner jams wind through a Holley Hi-Ram intake, which shades Holley EFI fuel rails that are monitored by a liquid-filled Aeromotive pressure gauge. Those rails push fuel through lightweight LS3 heads, which tilt polished Holley valve covers under short MSD plug wires. Up front, there's a polished radiator that's fitted with a polished expansion tank and a massive puller fan. To the left, a polished brake booster feeds a quartet of discs. Details are well thought, with items like Current Performance Wiring and a Crane cam complementing a professional tune by Garner, North Carolina's RPM Motorsports. And, aesthetically, the cast iron mill, color-matched to the truck's sweet interior, looks great inside a smooth and spotless engine bay.

UPGRADES GALORE

Take a gander under this slick 3100 and you'll find a modified Chevy S-10 chassis that mixes new age technology with old school durability. At the center of those bones, a cooled 4L80E 4-speed twists a custom driveshaft that's mated to a 9-inch Ford axle. That drivetrain rides a heavily upgraded suspension, which follows trick drop spindles with a triangulated 4-bar rear-clip that's finished with Eibach springs and QA-1 shocks. Turns come courtesy of modern power steering. Stopping is a cinch thanks to power-assisted Wilwood calipers, which clamp four and six pistons around 12-inch drilled and slotted rotors. Coated Schoenfeld headers swirl spent gases through an X-shaped crossover and brash turbo mufflers. And torque melts the pavement thanks to chromed Ridler blades, which spin 225/50ZR18 BF Goodrich g-Force Comp-2s in front of 255/45ZR20 BF Goodrich g-Force Sport Comp-2s.

A NICE PLACE TO BE

Between the doors, you'll find custom Terracotta leather that was professionally installed by Rustburg, Virginia's Custom Interiors by Stitch. 2001 Buick LeSabre buckets look and feel fantastic. In front of those seats, a custom dash hangs stylish Dakota Digital VHX telemetry next to modern JVC audio and Old Air Products climate control. That Bluetooth-capable CD player is, along with modern power windows, charged through 21-circuit EZ Wiring electronics. And the driver spins a polished and half-wrapped steering wheel around a polished, tilting column.

A tough-looking street rod that wraps a hot, modern drivetrain in crisp, timeless aesthetics? What more could you ask for? Call, click or visit https://www.RKMotors.com for more information on this awesome Chevrolet!
