1957 Chevrolet 3100 Classic Trucks Magazine dubbed this PERFECTION. This 1957 Chevrolet 3100 Big Window pick up is the result of a meticulous build focused on creating the perfect driving custom truck. Some of the highlights are: 327ci/375hp Chevrolet engine, built by CarrCo Engines, Orange, CA, assembled by sprint car racing legend Rod Payne and featuring balanced and blueprinted, forged crank and pistons, polished and shot-peened rods, Clay Smith 30/30 cam, solid lifters, 2.02 fulie heads, dual quad aluminum Corvette intake topped with a pair of 450cfm Carter WCFB, vintage Cierello Vertex magneto w/Taylor wires, Mattson aluminum radiator, Hedman Headers, MagnaFlo mufflers, sprint car style oil pan, Centerforce clutch, Schaffer aluminum flywheel. The stock 1967 Chevy 5-speed trans with Hurst shifter is connected to a Corvette Posi rearend with 3.31:1 ratio. The truck rolls on American Torq-Thrusts (15x7s and 16x8s) with Fuzion HRi tires (215/60R15 and 225/60R16). The truck was extensively worked over, adding custom touches all around. The top is chopped 3in, the hood was sectioned 3-1/2 and louvered. A pair of 1950 Pontiac taillights were added, rounded bed corners and a gorgeous dark African mahogany floor finish the bed. A glistening cover of House of Kolor black was shot by Cerneys Auto Painting in Orange CA. Accent pin striping tastefully applied by the legend Dennis Ricklef covers the exterior and interior. The upholstery, stock gauges with additional Mooneyes gauges, a classic 1959 Oldsmobile steering wheel and the surprise feature of a vintage working ARC 45-rpm record player were added. Old Air Products air-conditioning, plenty of Dynamat and precision wiring finish the interior. The classic stance is due to CPP 3in drop spindles and Aldan shocks in front and leaf springs and Aldan shocks in the rear. A smooth ride is achieved.
