It’s no secret that Chevrolet builds some of the most celebrated trucks on the planet. From the AK era forward, every generation has found a solid following and, eventually, firm footing in the collector car world. Over the past few years, we’ve featured plenty of vintage, ground-pounding bowties, and this sleek ’59 resto-mod is just the latest in a series of sweet Task Force head turners. Mixing a massaged small block and modern GM 4-speed with bodywork that’ll sit well on any show field, this road-ready warrior is worthy of EVERY Chevrolet fan’s full attention. If you’re shopping for a clean classic that mixes modern detailing with purposeful simplicity, take a close look at this slick 3100!

BODYWORK/TRIM

A solid canvas that was ready to reflect some smooth street rod art, this super cool pickup benefitted from a ground-up, nut and bolt build that was designed for the street or the show. In addition to top-notch restoration, the truck’s sculpted body was supplemented with custom inner fenders, wider wheel tubs, and a cut, smoothed and filled firewall. With that labor-intensive groundwork laid, a smoothed hood and custom roll pan framed a smoothed tailgate, shaved mirrors and a billet-trimmed Curly Maple bed. That slick fuselage eventually made its way to Washington’s Whipple Motorsports for a seamless coat of Deep Black Gloss 2-stage. And, when that wet-looking pigment dried, finishing touches included modern headlights, amber parking lamps, capped wipers, tinted glass and bright LED taillights.

ENGINE

Toss the hood and you’ll find a 358 cubic inch, fuel injected small block that, according to this Chevy’s builder, creates healthy 10 to 1 compression. At the top of that polished and painted mill, custom, polished aluminum air tubes feed GM tuned port injection, which is seated between stainless fluid lines and a high quality Lokar throttle linkage. Below that linkage, free-breathing heads hide Comp roller rockers under polished, white-detailed valve covers. Fires get lit by fresh EZ Wiring, which jolts MSD Street Fire plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a Griffin aluminum radiator, which rides between a chrome puller fan, a polished expansion tank and a custom-fabricated support cover. Spent gases exit through ceramic-coated shorty headers. A Billet Specialties Tru Trac accessory drive spins an Edelbrock water pump between a polished AC compressor and polished Powermaster alternator. And the truck’s glossy, body-matched engine compartment is exceptionally well done, with items like chrome dipsticks, polished hood hinges and a custom-fabricated engine cover rounding out an otherwise impressive build.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Crawling under this old school bowtie reveals a fresh double A-arm/4-link suspension that’s been augmented with polyurethane bushings, tubular control arms and adjustable coil-over-shocks. Behind the small block, a 700R4 4-speed bridges the gap between a 10-bolt axle and 2,500 RPM stall converter. That familiar drivetrain pushes heavily undercoated floors on a body-matched chassis. Unisteer electronic power rack-and-pinion steering provides tracking. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to power-assisted, Aerospace Components calipers, which squeeze big drilled and slotted rotors. The aforementioned headers breathe through fabricated, crimp-free pipes, which hang welded, dual-chamber mufflers in front of polished, quad-outlet tips. At the corners of the chassis, polished Coys wheels twist 245/40ZR18 Falken Azenis in front of 315/35R20 Falken Azenis. And everything, from the truck’s Milodon oil pan to its relocated fuel tank, is well planned, well executed and ready to work its magic!

INTERIOR

When you pop this pickup’s doors, you’ll find a stylish custom cockpit that’s laced with plush, ultraleather surfacing. Top dead center, cushy bucket seats appear to be 90s-era GM pieces. In front of those seats, a smoothed dash hangs Classic Instruments Tach-Force gauges above Streamline controls for the truck’s Vintage Air climate system. At the base of that dash, a custom console centers modern JBL audio and a short Lokar shifter between switch-operated courtesy lamps and big Directed speakers. Opposite that console, sculpted door panels hang small, billet handles in front of 1-piece power windows. Under those panels, clean carpet frames billet foot pedals and color-keyed JBL kick speakers. And in front of the driver, a tilting Ididit steering column spins a polished and half-wrapped Billet Specialties wheel.
