For Sale: 1954 Chevrolet 3100 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

We love a classic truck because it reminds us of tradition, robustness, and care that lasts for generations. That's what gets us excited about this 1954 Chevrolet 3100 5 Window Pickup. This will be the first time it leaves its original family, and there are pieces like a long maintenance log to prove it. And there's an originality everywhere from the paint to the motor that we basically just don't see anymore. So this truck is a true opportunity at joining a legacy.


Chevrolet's Advance Design era were great-looking trucks, but there are a select few that are a bit more distinctive. 1954 brought its only major design change with the distinct front end - something that was only available for a year and a half over this truck's long run. So it looks awesome with the grille in chrome and even new chrome bumpers and hubcaps to match the shine. But it's not the updated details that are going to interest you the most. Instead, this Chevy really earns your attention with the look of its Ocean Green paint. It shows all signs of being the original application, and it has a beautiful patina. And since people will want to touch it, this has even been buffed for added luster and smoothness. Rarely does the factory finish last this long, but this is an actual mileage truck averaging under 1,100 miles annually over its lifetime thus far. So it has spent far more time in the garage than out in the fields. It's the kind of truck that comes with a terrific story, and when you tell its tale there are also terrific details for everyone to check out. It has the best classic pieces like the side-mounted spare tire, a white pinstripe on the cab that matches the wheels, wood side slats on the bed, and the factory wood under the bed mat. Plus, the five-window cab is one of the most desirable options ever in classic trucks.


There's plenty more cool green inside. It's a beautiful two-tone on the dash and door panels. And while the full presentation isn't perfect, the idea here is more about showing respect over the decades. After all, you will literally be able to touch generations of the one-family ownership every time you feel the wear in the steering wheel. A few details like the seat upholstery or floor mats may have been updated over nearly 70 years, but the overall feeling is a true time capsule. It goes right down to details like the working heater. And since this one seems to be loaded with the best options around in 1954, we're really glad to see the AM radio still there for a display.


This truck continues its theme of honest showmanship under the hood. Chevrolet's sturdy 235 cubic-inch motor looks great with its earned workhorse style. And the block number matches the registration for a nice level of originality. But a truck like this also doesn't miss out on upkeep. The maintenance log shows newer items like the cylinder head, carburetor, distributor, and wires. So it continues to fire up and run like a faithful member of the family. This drives like a proper old pickup, including the distinct feeling of control from the column-mounted three-speed manual transmission. But updates like newer tires also mean this classic is ready to cruise.


The sale comes complete with a maintenance log, maintenance receipts, and service manuals all documenting its history. This is a unique opportunity to be the first one to own this Chevy outside of the original family. That's pure pickup tradition, and it's an opportunity we don't find much these days. So don't miss out on this true classic. Call today!!!
