This 1949 Chevrolet 3100 is a full custom restomod that 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 fuel-injected V8,
overdrive transmission, leather-lined A/C interior, and full
upgraded suspension make it irresistible to drive, too.
This truck has a look of distinction and quality from every angle.
The light green metallic paint has an amazing depth and the light
rolls off the shine with a slippery smooth presentation 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 front bumper, bezels,
and iconic five-bar grille. The 17-inch billet wheels are not only
adding to the polished style, but also draw attention to the
truck's sporty stance. And more of that performance look are in
sleek details, like the color-matched sport mirrors, flush rear
roll pan with frenched lights, and the flush-fitting hard tonneau.
And when the struts smoothly open that top, you can see a glossy
wood bed that reminds you the only hauling this truck will ever do
again is hauling home trophies.
The interior has a true artist's touch that could win awards all on
its own. The saddle leather looks like a top-of-the-line modern
truck. It starts with two terrific-looking bucket seats that also
have the kind of bolstering that make them all day comfortable. The
headliner, door panels, sun visors, lower dash, and armrest center
console have all been done to match in this very uniform total
package. Even the bold exterior green returns on the door tops and
dash. You have the best in modern features, like ice-cold R134a air
conditioning, power windows, power steering, and an AM/FM/CD stereo
cleanly hidden away in the glovebox. The artful tan and chrome
steering wheel is mounted on a color-matched Flaming River tilt
column. It gives you a clear view Dakota Digital gauges that fit in
the factory housing but offer a full modern readout package.
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 custom inner panels really funnel all your attention
to the V8 power within. This is a polished and tidy motor that also
has the unmistakable look of modern power. It's Chevy's 350
cubic-inch Ram Jet fuel-injected V8. Not only does this have
terrific power right out of the box, but the SS shorty headers add
both muscle and rumble to the package as it feeds the Magnaflow
dual exhaust. Plus, this fresh setup has all the right supporting
components, including a serpentine belt system, steel braided
lines, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans (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 such as the Heidts SuperRide independent
front end, four-link rear with adjustable coilovers, and four-wheel
power disc brakes. And it all sits on a strong Roadster Shop
pro-touring Stage 3 frame. Of course, when you're looking at the
underside, you also see an award-worthy presentation that will have
you putting a mirror under this one wherever you park it.
Rarely do you find such a custom 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!
