The Advance Design pickups are on the radar with enthusiasts, and if you've been holding off waiting for a deal, here's a newsflash: they will not be getting cheaper. The good news is that you can own this beautifully built 1954 Chevy 3100, not for $60,000 or $50,000, but quite a bit less. A powerful V8, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes all wrapped in a slick two-tone presentation... This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 3-Window is the cool custom street machine that's ready to run right now.
It's hard not to get drawn in by an interesting pickup like this one. Finished in Eggshell White over Orange and done to a high standard, this 65+ year old has a serious dose of attitude. Custom touches like the front bumper delete, rear roll pan, shaved handles, and side exit exhaust give this beauty a look that stands out from the crowd. The creamsicle paint scheme also draws plenty of attention to the bright five-bar grille that is an artistic icon today, and the color-matched fiberglass bed cover lifts up to reveal an expertly crafted oak bed. Plus, the stock-style dog dish and beauty ring accents are a wonderful contrast to the orange steelies, which tuck in nicely under the aggressively raked stance of this 3100.
More custom work is evident the moment you open the door. The original bench seat was swapped in favor of ultra-roomy captain's seats adorned with high-end vinyl and durable cloth inserts, and a custom center console ushers in both functionality and added style. Soft carpeting, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and R134a A/C are big improvements over the old '50s cab, but it all still feels vintage thanks to the Art Deco style dash. You slip behind the padded 3-spoke steering wheel affixed to the chrome tilt column, grab the bright shifter, and look out over a full set of Omega Kustom gauges – all clear indications that you'll love what's in the engine bay.
Under the hood is a slick presentation radiating with color-matched inner fenders and a smoothed firewall, shiny Edelbrock valve covers, and a matching air cleaner. The crate 350 cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with aluminum heads and is topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. It's a motor that let's you see and feel it's extra kick of power. And the ceramic coated headers that feed that Magnaflow dual exhaust even lets you hear that power. This is a great motor for the streets, and it only gets better with some terrific upgrades like the 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, there's power steering, an upgraded front suspension, and the superior stopping prowess of power four-wheel disc brakes.
With a completed frame-off restoration, this is the classic pickup that has the look of a street machine and all the right investments to back it up, too. Nice custom builds like this never stay here long, so don't miss your chance. Call now!
