1955 Chevy Custom 3100 Series Pickup
One of the most iconic trucks of the early 50s was the 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Series. The 1955 second series offered standard options and add-ons such as 12-volt electrical systems, the first V8, and fleet-side six-, seven-, and eight-foot length beds.
Boasting V-8 power, automatic transmission, many paint options, and deluxe interior, the 1955 Chevrolet Cameo shortened the distance between car and truck. The 1955 set the stage for other
stylish trucks, such as the Ford Styleside, the Dodge Sweptside, and Chevy's own Fleetside which quickly followed suit.
Why This Car Is Special
This 1955 Chevrolet Pickup we have at Skyway Classics has been extensively customized and features brilliant orange paint, a plush custom tan interior, Chevy TPI engine, and a great new wood bed.
This is one of the premier restorations and custom 1955 Chevy Pickups in the country. The owner has stated that the body on this truck was found at a GM warehouse and had NEVER been put on another truck or painted!
Under the hood is a clean and shiny 350 CI small-block TPI V-8. The power plant has highly polished a intake, valve covers, and air cleaner, Serpentine belt system, wire looms, air conditioning, and a higher capacity radiator and cooling system. Power from the engine is sent to the rear tires through a G.M. 4L60E transmission and the 10-bolt 8 ½” Positraction differential. This custom 1955 rides upon a custom chassis with modified front and rear suspension, and new shocks.
The interior of the custom truck is virtually unmatched. Custom plush tan leather seats are accented by matching door-panel inserts and carpets, a custom instrument panel with performance gauges, body colored matching painted dash, chrome billet tilt steering column with tan leather wrapped steering wheel, chrome turn signal stem, chrome shifter, and Air Conditioning.
The chrome work is exceptional as is the flawless paint and body work flowing back to the tan bed cover with the gorgeous wood bed underneath.
Our 1955 Chevy Truck rides on Boss Motorsports 22” Custom Chrome wheels and performance 265/35/22 tires, and has the stance and exhaust note to back it up.
