For Sale: 1953 Chevrolet 3100 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

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 always wanted.

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 especially nice job of bridging the worlds of new and vintage. You still get the real lumber on the floor, but it has the kind of modern smooth gloss you'd expect to be on the floor of a brand new country home.

If you liked the look of black and red on the outside, then you're going to love the full two-tone interior. They give you the right vintage flair with the art deco dash, factory gauges, and two-piece windshield, but you can really tell the focus here was about updating this to be a comfortable cruiser. The upholstery is a tasteful black with red inserts and piping. And the individual buckets are vastly more comfortable than anything you originally got in a 1950s pickup. There's also an armrest center console, cup holders, and cold-blowing air conditioning for modern convenience. The driver is also specifically upgraded for a better experience with a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and a tall Lokar shifter.

Lift the hood to see a healthy upgrade in power. This vintage 3100 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 drive their classics. So if you want to turn heads on trips near and far, call today!
