Without a doubt this 1955 Chevrolet 3100 has to be one of our favorite trucks that we have seen roll through the doors lately. Beyond the obvious look that only a lifetime of use can bring, this 3100 is very deceptive. Simply looking at the outside you might just pass along, but you would miss the fact that under the hood is a Chevy 350 with aluminum heads, power front disc brakes, and a mustang 2 front suspension for an incredible ride... Oh and did we mention it has a 6-speed manual?
The 55 "big window" pickups are always desirable and this one is no different. The patina on the top of the doors, hood and rough is all original. The fenders did have to be replaced and painted to match. However, whoever did it knew what they were doing, because it flows flawlessly from the hood to the fenders. The bed is 100% original patina, infact the bed was used as a motorcycle trailer for many years. You can tell from the photos that the bed has some rust in the tail gate, but for us it just adds to the character of the truck.
Like we mentioned under the hood is a 350 V8 with RHS aluminum heads, Team G intake, brand new Summit 4-bbl carbuerotr, MSD Coil and distributor, Mustang 2 front suspension with rack and pinion and tubular control arms. Bolted to the engine is a 6-speed manual transmission that sends power to a 10-bolt rear.
Not to often do you find this much character inside and out on a pickup. If you are looking to restore a truck, this is a good candidate for that. However, for us, the truck is just ready to be enjoyed the way it is. Don't miss your chance to own this awesome pickup.
