Patina trucks teach us there's more than meets the eye. After all,
with a terrific gloss, upgraded A/C interior, and a powerful V8,
this 1949 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has a cool kind of confidence that
goes beyond its worn-in appearance.
This is a patina'd body, which is always going to get you attention
and start conversations wherever you go. But what gives this one
back the hint of luster it lost decades ago is a new clear coat
finish. It seals in the distinct appearance and adds some
protection, which is a good thing considering all the other
investments that have been made to make this a long-term classic.
You see its true charm in the bright grille and large 20-inch Boyd
Coddington wheels. It looks great with the lowered suspension that
neatly tucks these modern alloys under the classic fender lines.
The wood bed was elevated so that this could accommodate the lower
stance while not losing its vintage charm. In fact, speaking of
classic appeal, we know you love all the extra pieces like the
visor over the windshield, pinstriping, and cool Bubba's Chop Shop
logos on the doors.
Inside there has been an investment in comfort. The bench seat has
custom contouring to be vastly more comfortable than anything you
could get in a '40s pickup. And you have a ton of great upgrades,
including power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and R134a
air conditioning (will need servicing to blow ice cold). So while
it might look like you're roughing it on the outside, you'll be as
comfortable as a modern pickup on the inside! There's even a great
banjo-style wood and chrome steering wheel, and that gives you a
nice view of the full Dolphin gauge package.
Because you're going to be showing off this whole truck, even the
engine bay looks cool. You have a tidy setup dominated by a hot rod
air topper painted to match the interior green and even has
pinstriping. The 350 cubic-inch V8 is far more displacement than
what came on the entire Advance Design series, and this one is
further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor,
Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers that feed the rumbling dual
exhaust. There's even an aluminum radiator to keep this total
package running cool. And so while you're thinking about cruising
this patina machine, upgrades like the three-speed automatic
transmission, upgraded independent front suspension, power
steering, and four wheel disc brakes will really get your mind
going about how far you can easily take this former workhorse.
This is an exceptionally cool patina custom that's unique, sporty,
and all-around comfortable. So don't miss out on something this
distinct. Call today!!!
