From Task Force beauties to venerable S-10s, Chevrolet has spent the last hundred years consistently delivering universally appealing trucks for purists and hot rodders alike. This clean 3100 is a great example of a solid slice of Americana that’s benefitted from solid restoration. Ready for a pickup you’ll be proud to show off? Take a close look at this awesome Chevy!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Fresh out of the restoration shop, this mint Chevy has been meticulously rebuilt to preserve all the innate appeal of GM’s popular Advance Design aesthetic. The truck’s expressive body panels have been bathed in a correct combination of Swift Red and Jet Black 2-stage. And fresh factory trim and tasteful tan pinstripes highlight acute attention to detail. At the front of the truck’s 5-window fuselage, a white grille centers polished bars between clean halogen headlights, amber driving lamps and a guarded bumper. Behind that grille, a stainless-trimmed hood anchors an Art Deco topper in front of fresh glass and polished wipers. At the sides of that bonnet, factory badging leads polished mirrors, polished handles, a polished fuel filler and stainless-trimmed, Chevrolet-branded running boards. At the back of those boards, highly varnished rails hang vintage Texaco signs above highly varnished planks, which are detailed with stainless skid strips. And at the back of those strips, a “CHEVROLET” branded tailgate reflects polished plugs, sleeved chains, polished tail lamps and a second chrome bumper that traces bowtie-branded exhaust.

ENGINE

Hoist the truck’s domed hood and you’ll find a 235 cubic inch 6-cylinder that, according to its 3835911 casting number, and E 13 4 casting date, originated in 1954. Introduced for use in large platforms, and regarded as one of the all-time great Chevrolet powerplants, the Thriftmaster is a favorite among vintage GM truck buyers because of its simple design, adequate power and excellent durability. A petite Rochester carburetor and old school air cleaner combine with stainless fluid lines and a tagged Delco-Remy generator to keep the engine clean and functional. And items like satin fenders, a polished valve cover and traditional blue block skin ensure the mill is very impressive to look at.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Bottom-side, power meets the ground through a traditional 3-speed transmission and driver friendly rear end. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all four corners of the chassis, mixing rugged road prowess with firm and solid stops. A single-pipe exhaust system, which is wired to a large muffler, runs the whole length of the truck. And everything rolls on chromed steelies, which turn 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around red-trimmed Chevrolet hubcaps.

INTERIOR

When you pop this pickup’s doors, you’ll find a factory-fresh cockpit that’s full of utilitarian charm. A brown bench seat complements brown door panels, a brown headliner and a black floor mat. And a “CHEVROLET” branded steering wheel laps fully restored gauges and a familiar Guide traffic light viewer.

If you’re looking for a traditional classic that mixes quality restoration with unmatched style and unparalleled fun, this truck deserves your full attention. It’s spectacular from every angle. It plays to nostalgia and Americana that everyone can appreciate. And it’s a highly drivable piece that actually FEELS like vintage hardware. So, what are you waiting for? Grab the phone, park this Chevy in your garage and get ready for years of carefree cruising!
