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 ’55 resto-mod is just the latest in a series of sweet Advance Design head turners. Mixing a Corvette small block and tough 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!

A mildly modified custom when found by its current owner, this super cool pickup recently received a roof-to-rocker makeover courtesy of Bob Tooke in New Caney, Texas. That body-off reboot started in 2012, when an incredibly straight fuselage met new rockers and fresh cab corners. That fuselage, which features better-than-factory alignment, makes great use of deep Burgundy two-stage. And that pigment’s combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggest many labor-intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch finish work.

While its basic shape is certainly appealing, first-rate detailing is what makes this Chevy really pop. At the front of the truck, a trick billet grille rides between a smoothed bumper, chrome-trimmed headlights and a shaved header crest. Behind that crest, a domed hood leads the eye to a ‘big window’ cab that’s sealed in smoked glass and bright stainless wipers. At the sides of those wipers, a completely shaved profile incorporates a custom fuel filler behind electronically activated doors. Behind those doors, a spectacular wood bed is detailed with stainless skid strips and LED rail plugs. And at the back of the truck, a smoothed tailgate reflects flush-fit tail lights and a custom rollpan.

Toss the hood and you’ll find a GM LS1 crate engine that’s good for a solid 350 horsepower. At the front of the low-profile mill, a modern serpentine system spins a polished alternator and polished AC compressor below a polished air cleaner. Once air enters that cleaner, it flows from a polished Professional Products throttle body in to a polished Professional Products intake, which is bolted down over GM-spec internals. High octane fossils are provided by electronic fuel injection. Sparks are sequenced through high performance Taylor plug wires. Spent gases are whisked away by a slick pair of ceramic-coated shorty headers. And cooling comes courtesy of a PRC aluminum radiator that’s complete with a quick-spinning electric puller fan. On the visual end of the spectrum, mirrored injector covers nicely highlight the truck’s deep paint while covering the less attractive part of GM’s aluminum block design. The smoothed firewall and glossy engine compartment are completely detailed to match that deep paint. And niceties such as polished fuel lines, trick dipsticks and a body-matched hood add the kind of flash that starts conversations and wins fans.

During its youth, this classic spent most days living outside and working hard. So, when the time came for rebirth, the truck was a prime candidate for thorough modernization. Nowhere is that theme more evident than under the skin. The LS1’s power flows from a rebuilt 4L60E 4-speed to sturdy, fourth generation Corvette axles. That familiar drivetrain pushes a boxed, braced and powder-coated chassis on a fourth generation Corvette suspension. Tracking is provided by a custom front clip which, modeled after a 1988 Monte Carlo, features Global West control arms and modern power steering. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to power-assisted, GM-style discs at all four corners. At the center of the floor, true-dual exhaust breathes through throaty turbo mufflers. At the corners of the chassis, polished Centerline wheels twist 225/60R17 Michelin Energy LX4s. And everything, from the truck’s hidden brake booster and quality master cylinder to its high-pressure fuel pump and 22-gallon fuel tank, is well-planned, well executed and ready to work its magic!

When you pop this pickup’s doors, you’ll find a stylish and comfortable cockpit that was installed by Duke’s Custom Upholstery of Porter, Texas. Top dead center, a smoothed dash hangs Dakota Digital gauges above a Pioneer CD player and hardware for Vintage Air climate control. In front of that dash, cushy bucket seats wear supple leather hides. At the sides of those seats, leather door panels hang small, billet handles in front of convenient power windows. Under those panels, clean carpet anchors color-keyed floor mats between a custom console, custom foot pedals and a familiar Lokar shifter. Opposite that carpet, an ornate headliner stretches tight behind a polished mirror and matching sun visors. And in front of the driver, a tilting steering column spins a polished and half-wrapped wheel.

The sale of this smoothed and gentrified workhorse includes restoration photos, restoration receipts and a plaque from the truck’s first place showing at the 10th Annual Friendswood Chamber of Commerce Car Show.

Perpetually cool and visually stunning, this awesome Chevy is a classic example of the skill and creativity that defines our hobby. With its clean craftsmanship and excellent asking price, it presents the rare opportunity to land a well-done trophy winner that doubles as a well-done road warrior. Don’t miss your chance to own this sweet resto-mod!
