A classic patina pickup reminds us all of what a hard day's work should look like. But with this 1951 Chevrolet 3100, there's also more than meets the eye. So enjoy everything from modern upgrades to plenty of V8 power on this distinct classic.
This body is all about being secretly rewarding. The paint was purposely weathered to look like it has spent a lifetime being a workhorse. But you can really tell the level of investment on this one as you spend a little extra time with it. The 3100's body is solid, and you can see how good the panels are by the uniform sheen as the light rolls off this matte finish. And as you look at all the details – from the way the doors shut confidently, to clean new headlights, to the classic whitewall tires – you soon see there was a lot of time spent getting the fundamentals right before creating this total weathered disguise.
The interior starts to show off this truck's flare a little more. You still get the cool worn-in presentation on the dash paint and factory gauges, but this has also been nicely upgraded. It starts with the fresh bench seat that has terrific piping to match the interior cream color. The same goes for the door panels with subtle cream stitching. Even the carpeting and custom steering wheel coordinate with the seat to really give this the feeling of a thoughtful build. Plus, with a B&M shifter, the auxiliary gauge trio built into the dash, and a modern TCI-EZ TCU transmission controller, you can tell this has been upgraded for those who like to drive their classics.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. The 350 cubic-inch V8 is far more displacement than what came on the entire Advance Design series, and this one takes it up a notch with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Weiand intake. Plus, with serpentine belts, an aluminum radiator, and electric fan, this is a more modern and reliable runner than its barn find exterior might suggest. It fires up confidently, and the V8 makes a nice sound from the dual exhaust. Out on the road, this patina cruiser feels great thanks to a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes.
This is an exceptionally cool patina custom that's unique, sporty, and all-around comfortable. So don't miss out on something this distinct. Call today!!!
