At first glance, this is a sleek 1954 Chevrolet 3100 Restomod. But
the true show-stopper is when you lift the hood and see nothing
there! This is actually a rear-engine pickup with a huge Cadillac
V8 in the bed. So this amazing setup is a true custom build that
you're going to love showing off everywhere.
The bold orange sets the tone perfectly. You know you're looking at
a truck that has been given some serious custom work when it also
has been given a glossy finish that's so vibrant that it looks like
it could glow in the dark. Those upgraded LED headlights could
certainly turn night into day. There are other cool upgrades like
the polished 20-inch wheels and inches chopped out of the cab's
roof to give the truck a proper sporty stance. This even likes to
have fun with the classic style. The unique 1954 grille is
color-matched to the car and is highlighted by custom-painted
pinstriping. In fact, this maroon detail pops up around the body

comfortable than anything that came out of the 1950s, and so they
get you ready for driving. So does the sports steering wheel, tilt
column, and full upgraded gauge package.
Just in case people did not already notice the bed, it also has a
hydraulic tilt to lift to make sure crowds are going to gather when
they see this one. The bed is permanently hauling Cadillac's
largest V8 ever. This 500 cubic-inch motor is now advertised at
507ci. It looks great with details like the polished components,
including the cool caddy valve covers. This V8 has a dual-feed air
intake, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and an Edelbrock
Performer intake. You can tell they took the time to make a quality
installation, and the result is a string-running powerhouse. You
have nice driving features like a three-speed automatic
transmission, power steering, and four-wheel power disc brakes. And
because the big V8 was built for front-drive cars like the
Eldorado, this special setup in the rear gives you a fully
independent suspension - how many custom classic pickups have
The sale comes complete with build receipts, service manuals, and

you need to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!
