Vehicle Description

A classic panel van is great for everyone from surfers to business owners to get in on the vintage fun. And they updated this 1953 Chevrolet 3100 Panel Delivery to please more than just your practical side. The clean engine bay has well-built stroker V8 to make sure this vintage hauler can really haul on the asphalt.


You already know Chevy's Advanced Design pickups are red hot right now because of their iconic style. The bright Art Deco grille, alligator hood, and rounded fenders instantly make this a star. So it's even better when you can get this lineage in something that's rarer, more interesting, and more versatile. Panel vans are so substantial that they are literally hard to miss, and that gets amplified even further on a machine painted in a distinct yellow and tan two-tone. It really adds to the vintage flair without losing the workman attitude. You'll spot all the correct details, like the badging and two-piece windshield. There's even a classic visor over the top. But that lowered suspension with bright Foose Legend alloys (and an aggressive 18/20 inch front/rear stance) signal you'll like this for more than just it history.


Open the door to a nice mix of vintage and upgraded. For example, the dash has more of the great Art Deco look, but when you fire up the motor, the gauges come alive with modern digital readouts. The steering wheel has a classic style, but it's actually a more modern Lecarra unit on a tilt column. Plus, you have a tall Lokar shifter, upgraded pedals, plush carpeting, and a terrific set of supple leather bucket seats. Behind this comfy driver cab is plenty of protected storage for you to carry all the equipment you need for business, pleasure, or both! Just like the pickups of the era, this has a real wood bed, so people will love to see you open those large rear doors no matter if you are camping or tailgating.


Another special piece that people will want to see is the motor. The engine bay is a very thoughtful setup with clean color-matched tan inner fenders. And we especially love how the block, accents, and firewall match the exterior yellow. It's the kind of well-done presentation that will get people talking. And more than just an award-worthy look, those valve cover callouts are not lying about this Chevy's power. It's a 383 cubic-inch stroker motor, and it has been upgraded further with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake, and shorty headers feeding the dual exhaust. There's even an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep this upgraded V8 package running cool. This is the kind of classic you're going to want to drive, and so they also gave you more great upgrades like four-wheel disc brakes, a three-speed automatic transmission, and an upgraded tubular A-arm independent front end.


This is the classic that would look just as good in your garage as it would in front of your business. That's why we know there are plenty of people who want it - especially at this affordable price. So don't miss out, call today!
