Striking, custom, and affordable - this 1957 Chevrolet 3100 pickup
is everything you want in a vintage and attention-grabbing pickup,
right down to the small block V8 under the hood.
The person who made this custom creation was probably a University of Tennessee fan, but you don't have to support the Vols to appreciate the exceptional artistry. After all, the way the orange blends into the white takes a very professional hand. Up front we love how the orange is used to patina the grille and highlight the power domes of the hood. It uses the naturel lines of the profile to help divide the two colors on the sides, and then takes its time on tailgate to really show you what a cool fade can be. It's all quite creative. Even the real wood truck bed gets in the two-tone action with orange securing rails within the white-walled bed.
Inside is more custom two tone. There was a nice investment in a custom vinyl bench seat, and this is the only place that officially declares its love for the Vols. And the way the door panels, dash, roof, and steering column all intertwine with orange and white is downright attractive. This truck comes with all the right features that you would install yourself. This ranges from the B&M floor shifter, to retro-style AM/FM stereo that can adapt to more modern music players. You get an upgraded sports steering wheel, and beyond that is the classic fan-style Chevy speedometer. And while that looks great in this '57, the trio of auxiliary gauges is quite handy to keep you in touch with what's going on under the hood.
The orange engine bay has been upgraded with small block power. The 305 cubic-inch V8 looks nicely dressed with Edelbrock air topper and valve covers. But more importantly, Edelbrock also provided the performance four-barrel carburetor. Not only does this V8 inhale deeply, but also it exhales with authority as the performance headers that feed a newer stainless glasspack-style dual exhaust. You get the best control over this enhanced V8's powerband thanks to an adjustable stall converter on the three-speed automatic transmission. On the road, you're going to love how this classic feels with upgrades such as the Mustang II-style independent front suspension, power steering, and front disc brakes. This modern cruising package is finished off with large 18-inch OE Racing alloys with grippy Falken tires at each corner.
This truck will impress you with its quality and custom work. So the value price is just the cherry on top. A deal like this is always goes quickly, so call today!
