1956 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup Truck
Why This Car Is Special
Early in the 50's, Chevrolet's trucks were called the Chevrolet
Task Force. They were Chevrolet's successor to the Advance Design
trucks. The Task Force Series ran from late 1955 through 1959.
The 1955 second series offered standard options and add-ons such as
12-volt electrical systems, the first V8, a 265 cubic inch engine,
and fleet-side six-, seven-, and eight-foot length beds.
In 1956 they had a wider hood emblem, two-piece fender emblems that
were mounted above horizontal fender line, and it was the last year
for egg crate grille.
What we would like to show you at Skyway Classics is a restored and
modified version of a 1956 Chevy 3100 truck. It is a beauty and has
been upgraded with so many features we cannot list them all on this
Just by looking at the pictures you will see a beautifully restored
body painted in blue/white, a new custom interior, custom wheels
and performance tires and much, much more.
It is powered by a modified GM Crate 350 cubic inch small block
Chevy engine rated at 330 horsepower and has Dart aluminum heads,
Holley 750 cfm Dual-Feed performance carb, electric fan and
thermostat, air conditioning, power steering, power brakes, Milodon
7 quart oil pan, Griffin radiator, high flow fuel pump, Four wheel
disc brakes, 10-bolt rear end with 3:73 rear gears, new gas tank
Power goes to the automatic transmission with exhaust flowing out
the rear, and rides on new Nitto tires and Ridler custom chome
The custom interior replaces the original bench seat with twin
black high-back bucket seats and headrests from a Tahoe, seatbelts,
B&M Ratchet shifter, body color matching door panels, black
carpets, body painted dash uses Autometer custom white-face gauges
in the original panel, tach and shift lite, A/C vents have been
discreetly placed in the dash too, and a tilt column with a custom
billet wood steering wheel adds to the 21st century feel.
Painted a vivid yet period-perfect blue body with a contrasting
white top, and this Cameo pickup represents the first of the
pickups that were actually styled by designers rather than merely
As a result, they carry a lot of automotive-inspired design cues,
so if you see a little bit of Shoebox Chevy in the design, the
coincidence is purely intentional. The paint is in excellent
condition and this truck gets a ton of attention anywhere you
Enhancing the upscale look is the bright chrome bumpers and
restored grille, black vinyl bed cover, step-side bed, chrome
mirrors, and trim, all very nice.
They clearly focused on making it right and they've definitely
succeeded in a very big way. This truck is very, very nice!
