With its fuel-injected V8, upgraded suspension, modern A/C interior, and classic custom appearance, this 1953 Chevrolet 3100 is the kind of pickup you'd spend years building to get it like this. Only this example is already done and ready for fun today.
The first impression is exactly what you want on a vehicle that wants to look instantly custom while still respecting its history. For example, those cool whitewalls and factory-style wheel covers are part of the iconic appearance, they tuck under the lowered suspension nicely. Up front, the tall chrome grille and alligator hood blend in with the custom pinstriping, crystal clear headlights, and tight windshield seam. In the rear there's more pinstriping and a smoothed tailgate, but you still get great traditional elements like the rear wood truck bed. And arguably the best part is the set of doors. Not only do remote pulls allow for smooth handles, but the reverse hinging will always grab attention – especially since they lead with even more great pinstriping detail.
Inside the custom attitude is turned up even more. After all, the new interior reminds you that this level of bucket seat comfort was never available in the '50s. Plus, in-between are controls for the power windows and AM/FM/CD stereo. And while you still have the vintage dash, it's now filled with more modern Classic Instruments gauges. Plus, below that are controls for air conditioning and modern fuel-injection readout. And you'll even love the details like how the color of the tilt column matches the gray insert in the door panels.
The engine bay is award-worthy with its smooth walls and plenty of chrome. But look closer. Not only do you have tidy mountings, but also this has upgrades to make this a useful motor, like the upgraded pulleys, aluminum radiator, and easy access to the posts for the well-hidden Optima battery. And you're going to love the power this Chevy 350 V8 makes thanks to performance upgrades like the MSD fuel-injection, Edelbrock intake, and Edelbrock heads. Since the motor has been upgraded to be a great driver, the suspension was, too. The independent A-arms, thick sway bar, new urethane bushings, and adjustable coilovers give the front suspension a superior feel on the road. Plus, the four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive make this custom Chevy truck drive as easy-driving as a modern sedan.
