Vehicle Description

CLASSIC MEETS MODERN: Fully Custom 1953 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup

Step into the world of a true custom classic with this breathtaking 1953 Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck. Fresh off a comprehensive rotisserie restoration, this truck seamlessly blends classic styling with modern performance, creating a one-of-a-kind driving experience that will turn heads wherever it goes.

From the moment you lay eyes on this pro-touring masterpiece, you'll be captivated by its striking presence. The deep, lustrous Jet Black paint is a work of art in itself, enveloping the truck's iconic curves and contours like a finely tailored suit. But the real magic lies beneath the surface, where a symphony of cutting-edge components and bespoke touches await.

Under the hood, you'll find a built LS1 engine, featuring an ASA Hot Cam, Edelbrock ProFlo 4 EFI, and ICT Billet accessories drive, delivering an impressive combination of power and reliability. The engine is mated to a Tremec T56 6-speed transmission with a C7 Corvette clutch and flywheel, ensuring smooth and precise shifts. A new DOM tubing driveshaft transfers power to the rear wheels with ease. This pickup delivers an exhilarating driving experience that seamlessly blends old-school cool with new-school performance.

The truck's exhaust system is a work of art, featuring stainless headers and a full 2.5" stainless exhaust with stainless mufflers, giving the vehicle a distinctive and powerful sound. The suspension has been completely overhauled, now boasting a full C5 Corvette suspension setup with independent front and rear suspension, Gen 5 Camaro rear center section with a 3.55 gear, and BC racing adjustable coilovers in the front and rear. This setup provides exceptional handling and a smooth, comfortable ride that you don't typically find in these pickups.

What truly sets this build apart is the custom chassis that was meticulously crafted to integrate the C5 Corvette suspension and subframe. This is a rare and impressive feat, as it's quite possibly the only 1953 Chevrolet 3100 that utilizes the complete Corvette subframe rather than simply bolting on Corvette suspension components. The attention to detail and countless hours of fabrication are evident in the custom bracing and the seamless integration of the aluminum subframe. This unique engineering solution ensures that the truck handles like a modern sports car while retaining its classic aesthetic.

Stopping power is provided by impressive 13" brakes from a C5 Corvette, paired with a chrome power master for reliable and confident braking performance. The truck's body is a testament to the meticulous restoration process, with all-metal construction, a custom roll pan, and a deep Jet Black base clear coat finish. All trim, bumpers, and hardware have been replaced, and the vehicle features new tinted glass with one-piece door glass and fresh weatherstripping throughout.

Inside, the truck has been completely reupholstered with a TMI bench seat and door panels, creating a comfortable and stylish interior that compliments the no-nonsense attitude of this truck. A Dakota Digital dash keeps you well informed and adds a modern touch, while air conditioning ensures a pleasant ride in any weather. The electrical system has been fully updated with a custom wiring harness and LED taillights.

Rolling on a set of American Racing 338 wheels (part of the Made in USA line) in 20x8 front and 20x10 rear sizes, wrapped in 245 and 315 tires, respectively, this truck has an aggressive and sporty stance. The clutch feels light and responsive, and the transmission shifts smoothly, making it truly a joy to drive.

Don't miss your chance to own this incredible custom 1953 Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck. With its perfect blend of classic style, modern performance, and unique engineering, this vehicle is sure to impress even the most discerning enthusiast.
