For Sale: 1953 Chevrolet 3100 in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 Stake Bed has an industrial level of cool. After all, we love these post-war pickups for their rugged reputation, and a flatbed with wood sides really maximizes that useful feeling. But as you look inside and out, you can tell they took time to erase any traces from its decades of work to make this real truck a real looker.



This may have the equipment and style of a workhorse, but you can tell they took extra time to give it an attractive freshness. The two-tone red and black may be contrasting colors, but they are united in a quality shine. There are also plenty of cool details, like the shining front grille, running board step plates, classic wheel covers, and a wraparound steel rear bumper. While there's Chevrolet signage on the side right now, we bet you're thinking about what that would look like with your logo and sitting out in front of your business. It makes for an instant symbol of credibility and care. And of course, there's the bed. The stake sides make a high-sided pen for the clean steel flatbed. It makes for a great showcase on its own, but we bet you're also thinking about how it would be great to haul other vintage items. After all, just imagine how a classic pedal car, motorcycle, or other collectibles would look back there.



Inside is pure vintage truck simplicity. This one likes to be comfortable while still feeling like a farm hand. So you have a nicely recovered velour bench seat, seat belts, a durable rubber floor, and clear glass in the two-piece windshield. And the large steering wheel and tall shifter give you that unbeatable old-school pickup vibe.



The 216 cubic-inch inline-six is part of a legacy of industrial strength, and so it's great to see it so correctly present under the hood. The hoses, wires, and even the inner walls look fresh and dark so that the long gray cover takes center stage in the engine bay. It's the kind of investment that also means the truck runs like it was still needing to be a reliable daily worker. Another key to the truck's usefulness is the four-speed manual transmission. The "granny" low first gear means utilizing plenty of torque from the start, so this stake bed truck can get going even when under a load.



This Chevy is a great classic truck that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. So if you're ready for industrial-level cool, call today!
