This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 is an awesome kind of vintage pickup with
a glossy and thoughtful crafted two-tone. And the full restoration
really kept this clean over every inch, right down to the
This two-tone presentation shines as bright as your nostalgia.
After all, the red and white combo is as all-American as pulling an
ice-cold Coca-Cola from an icebox. In fact, don't you just think a
vintage Coke cooler would look awesome in the truck bed? Then
again, we also bet you want to showcase every inch of that glossy
wood. That's because you can really tell there was a lot of thought
that went into this Chevy's detail-oriented restoration. Even the
whitewall tires with red wheels have a great classic style that
matches with the whole truck. Plus, you'll love all the brightwork
with the bumpers, trim, badging, bezels, wheel covers, and iconic
five piece grille all having a mirror-like shine from a solid
investment. And while they took the time to make this a stunner,
you'll also appreciate the little things. The doors that shut
solid, the fit of the tailgate, the clean glass, and more all add
up to a feeling of quality that will keep you smiling.
The interior continues the feeling of a vintage machine that has
also had fresh investments. And we especially love how the two-tone
red and white return on the doors and dash. There is a great
classic truck feel with the sturdy basic elements, like the large
steering wheel and vintage gauges. But you can also tell this has
been upgraded for a cleaner/fresher style in places like the
excellent bench seat and durable floor mats. This is built to be a
cruiser, and so you'll see some subtle upgrades, like the
provisions for an AM/FM radio with satellite controller (it will
need servicing to fully function again.) And the sliding rear
window is an innovation from later pickups that really lets the
breezes flow through the cab for ideal ventilation.
There was plenty more attention to detail under the hood. This is a
235 cubic-inch Thriftmaster inline six. It's the large/optional
motor you could have had in 1953, and it's presentation today looks
like you turned back the clock to that year. Everything really
looks tidy and correct - from the painted blue block to the decal
on the oil bath air cleaner. The motor starts and runs as cleanly
as it looks. You take control of this powerhouse the old-fashioned
way with the column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a restored pickup that's
highly detailed to ignite your favorite memories while also giving
you some new adventures. This is the best in nostalgia, and it's
ready to hit the road right now.
