For Sale: 1953 Chevrolet 3100 in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This restored 1953 Chevrolet 3100 really hits all the right marks for those who love a distinct classic that's truly made to enjoy. After all, you have the vintage Chevy design done in a vibrant red, and this is even a desirable 5-window cab. But it also has the V8 power, upgraded suspension, and overdrive transmission to make it quite a nice cruiser in modern times.

Red is a color that always looks good on classic machines. But this is an upgrade that shows its freshness. In fact, there's only about 3k miles on the whole build. This one loves to show a balance of vintage and modern. So that red paint has a deep luster to help highlight the classic all-steel body even more. And a solid investment in the brightwork means the chrome bumpers and grille are positively radiant. We also like how the black sunshade goes with the black running boards. You'll find thoughtful details all over this truck, including a gas can in the bed that's really a toolbox. Some of the upgrades are subtle, like the gas filler cap in the bed. Others are quite obvious, like the 17-inch Ridler wheels on the lowered stance. And one of the coolest ways this mixes vintage and modern is how there's still a side-mounted spare tire, but it's now the modern alloy.

The five-window cab also means it lets in extra light for you to see the restored interior. The investments here continue the ideal of classic and upgraded. You have a smooth feel to the vintage dual-spoke steering wheel and a fresh cover to the bench seat. There are well-integrated upgrades like seatbelts and carpeting. The sale even comes with components if you want to add air conditioning. And the upgraded shifter, tilt steering column, and crisp Dolphin gauges make for an easy cruiser.

The engine bay has the look of a well-done powerhouse. You have clean inner fenders, matching black Chevy valve covers, a hot rod Caddy air grabber, and a tidy overall look of care. Even the fundamentals like belts, hoses, and wires have a look of quality. This 350 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeper with a Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake. And the Champion aluminum radiator will help keep everything running cool even when you are in traffic. This all makes for the kind of pickup you'll want to drive, and the upgraded 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive lets you enjoy it near or fan in comfort. Plus, features like the tubular A-arm front end, new shocks, front disc brakes, and wide modern sports tires give this an overall solid cruising attitude.

The sale comes complete with build receipts and maintenance records. This Chevy loves to blend classic style with modern upgrades to make sure you can use it and enjoy this desirable 5-window pickup to the fullest. Call today!!!
