The first major redesign for Chevrolet Pickups after WWII was the
"Advance Design" series introduced in 1947. They remained in
production through 1955 and were marketed as larger, stronger, and
sleeker than previous designs. These might have started life as
work trucks but in current times have become a go to for many
collectors. This nice 3100 3 Window Pickup is in good shape and has
a custom made stake bed in back. As you can probably tell by the
rectangle hay bale it was mostly used in things like local parades.
The stake bed features custom wood side rails and a vintage
Coca-Cola box that acts as a trunk or of course, a cooler. The body
is solid and the Red paint is in good condition. The running boards
are painted Black and in good shape as well. It no longer has a
rear bumper but still wears its original chrome front bumper and
that classic early 50's horizontal grill. The windows are in good
condition and it has a split two piece windshield. The wheels work
well with the vintage "farm truck" look and are painted Red with
Chevy hubcaps and beauty rings. It even has the wide white wall
tires with the all terrain style in the back.
Under the hood is a 350 motor that has been dressed up with a
chrome Edelbrock triangle air cleaner and chrome valve covers. It
has a nice sound through dual exhaust and transfers power back
through the Turbo 350 transmission to the 12 bolt rear end. The
truck is equipped with both power steering and power brakes making
it a comfortable driver. It also has disc brakes added up
The interior has been redone in a two tone Gray cloth that is in
great condition. It has a single bench seat fitted with matching
Gray lap belts. The dash is painted in Silver and features its
original style trim. The gauges are also the stock style but a
vintage Suntune mini tachometer has been added. A Pioneer
AM/FM/Cassette player has also been added to the dash.
All around this is a neat pickup that will make a nice driver for
anyone in the market. The stake bed makes it unique and makes it
perfect for hauling things around as well as being a stage or
sitting area for hay rides and parades.
