The sporty stance and sleekness of the paint tell you this 1953
Chevrolet 3100 is something special. And the custom A/C interior,
upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, and small block V8
power confirm it's the kind of total cruising custom classic you've
This does an expert job of respecting that history while also
delivering a very cool custom appearance. For example, black was
available in 1953, but now it has the unmistakable deep luster of a
modern and professional application. All that gloss is great for
letting the sunlight show off the curvy fenders of the Advance
Design pickup. This extra shine of the paint is aided by the
investment in mirror-like chrome on the bumpers and grille. The
suspension has been lowered and it helps to highlight the more
aggressive tires and bold red rally wheels. And the bed does an

The driver is also specifically upgraded for a better experience
with a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a tall

is now running a 350 cubic-inch small block. This V8 has been
further upgraded with the right pieces, like an Edelbrock
four-barrel carburetor and an aluminum radiator. as you look at the
undercarriage, you'll immediately spot the Mustang II-style front
end with tubular A-arms and front disc brakes. If this sounds like
a truck you're going to enjoy driving, then you'll also like all
the other road-ready upgrades like the power steering, power
brakes, wide Cooper Cobra tires, and a 700R4 four-speed automatic
transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.
This is the fully-built custom pickup that was made for those who
