This 1947 Chevrolet 3100 5-window Thriftmaster pickup has all the
right looks for a cool vintage truck. It has a frozen in time style
where the investments made were all about giving you the best in
nostalgia - it's everywhere from the extra lumber in the bed to the
feeling of the gears in the hardy motor.
If you love authentic vintage, then this Chevy is already exactly
how you want it. The black has that glossy finish that has a great
luster to show off the now iconic Advanced Design curves. So you
know there's going to be a jazz tune playing in your head as you
take in the full quality. And there are terrific details everywhere
from the whitewall tires to the red pinstripe around the cab. Plus,
the glossy paint is a great pairing for the restored brightwork.
The iconic five-bar grille, chrome bumpers, and two-piece wheel
trim all have a mirror-like presence. This really feels like it
gives you the best of everything from this era. That's also why
this has desirable features, like the five-window cab. And not only
do you have good-looking real wood on the bed floor, but the
matching lumber is also used for the attractive side stakes.
The five-window cab also means it lets in extra light for you to
see the restored interior. These pickups had a ready-to-work
attitude when new, and so that basic feeling continues inside. The
side panels, door handles, headliner, durable rubber flooring, and
distinct red bench have a period correct feel. There are a few
well-paced upgrades that are right for today's driving, like
seatbelts and an upgraded ignition. But you really know this is a
true classic when you grab the three-spoke steering wheel and gaze
at the clean gauges in the dash. Plus, the working heater is a
great reminder of how nice this option was when working in the
fields, and today it will still keep you warm on those early
mornings on the way to the car shows.
This truck continues its theme of honest showmanship with the right
investments under the hood. Chevrolet's inline-six has a clean look
with smooth block paint, tidy wires, and good hoses. This is
actually a 235 cubic-inch motor, which is larger than the 216ci
that was available in '47. So you get added pep but in a style
where you don't have to tell this truck's secret. It's a solid
runner that you expect from a restoration of this caliber, and even
the freshens of the undercarriage gives you confidence on the road.
It's such an authentic total package you even have a four-speed
manual transmission with a low/granny first gear for those times
when this sharp-looking classic was a true hauler.
This is the restored five-window Chevy for nostalgia lovers. It's
truly distinct, vintage, and detailed. That's why you know this is
a deal you need to grab right now. Call today!!!
