HIGHLIGHTS: Funky cool classic Chevrolet 3100 custom! Perfect
cruiser with that desirable rat rod vibe! Talk about a unique
BODY OVERVIEW: For the age of the vehicle, the body is in
surprisingly good shape. Make no mistakes, this Chevrolet pickup
truck is not a trailer queen in any capacity-but it was never
supposed to be one! The patina, dings, and other defects are all
part of the intentionally weathered look. Underneath, there are
patch repairs that appear to have been performed long ago as well
as areas that have been modified to mate the 3100 chassis to what
appears to be a slightly newer GM full-size car chassis. The
exterior trim has been deliberately altered to achieve the current
'ratty' look. Overall, the body is in great "driver" condition,
where you don't have to worry about door dings or someone sitting
on the hood.
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint job is yet another thing that
was done on purpose! It appears that the blue paint is underneath
the primer, and that it was done this way to go with the rat rod
theme. There are scratches and chips throughout, as can be expected
on a vehicle like this. Much like the body, the paint/primer is in
good "driver" condition. Plus, you just can't beat that weathered
look for a cool ratty vehicle like this!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The same ratty appearance continues
into the interior, with no amenities other than what is necessary
to drive the vehicle. The seat material, carpet, and door panels
are in intentionally rough but serviceable condition, but not so
nice that you'd feel bad tracking in sand from the beach or hopping
in with dirty boots.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood is a small block Oldsmobile V8,
which runs quite well despite the engine's outwards weathered
appearance. The engine is hooked up to a TH400 3-speed automatic
transmission. This puppy will get down the road just fine! Other
upgrades include A-arm front suspension, power front disc brakes,
and beer cap bumper bolts.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you're in the right mindset,
there's so much to love! From the uniqueness of the truck itself,
to the uncommon styling choices, to that rat rod theme, there are
many fun points to choose from.
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: If you want a car that is
show-ready with no defects, this is not the car for you. Such as
any home-built hot rod like this, this 3100 has its fair share of
casual mechanical issues. If you don't like wrenching on your
classic, this is probably not a good fit.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? It doesn't "need" anything urgently. It can
be driven and enjoyed as is. That said, there are a few
non-functional (or not present) items as noted at the bottom of
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Whether you're looking for a
cool truck to advertise for your business, or simply something
super unique to turn heads at cruise-ins on the weekends, this 3100
could be a great option!
