Description:

Perfectionists rejoice, we''ve found your pickup truck. This 1955 Chevy 3100 is so incredibly sanitary, top and bottom, inside and out, that you''ll be wanting one of those special clean suits they wear in electronics labs every time you drive it. This truck is NICE! It may look a bit orange in our photos, but the finish is actually a brilliant bright red stuck to bodywork that''s off-the-charts in every way. You can see from the reflections in the paint that everything is as straight as a mirror, and that effect continues even into areas you can''t see, like door jambs and the engine compartment. Each panel was installed and aligned with precision, so gaps are far, far better than they ever were on an assembly line. And then there''s the paint itself, which appears to be two-stage urethane for a shine that''s dazzling as well as durable. No liberties have been taken with the stylish bodywork, and all the original trim remains, including the gorgeous chrome grille and massive bumpers that are almost too stylish for a mere pickup truck. The bed has been refinished using freshly finished planks and bright stainless rub strips, again far nicer than it was when it was new. High fashion was the order of the day in 1955, when trucks evolved beyond being simple tools, and the beautiful black and white interior in this one is simply gorgeous. With a wide, comfortable bench, you can fit three across, and the pleated upholstery with V-shaped trim echoes Chevy''s production cars of the same vintage. A rubber floor mat makes it easy to clean, and the steering wheel was clearly inspired by the forward-looking "jet age." That Hurst shifter with cue ball knob controls a wide-ratio Muncie 4-speed, which helps this bright red pickup deliver impressive performance. All the gauges are stock and fully restored, with the only upgrades being the A/C system neatly hanging below the dash and an FM converter inside the original radio. That theme continues under the hood where there''s a warmed-over 350 with 4-bolt mains, aluminum heads, and a snarling solid-lifter camshaft. Nevertheless, it''s dressed in vintage duds and covered in Chevy Orange paint for an authentic look. Finned valve covers look period-correct, and the rest of the components are very production-line-oriented. Simple brackets for the alternator and A/C compressor, not flashy billet, neat cad-plated fasteners, and a set of ceramic-coated headers all give it a tidy, organized appearance without looking too flashy. Underneath, it''s just as clean, with spotless floors, satin black frame components, and fresh hardware everywhere you look. The rear is full of 3.91 gears to deliver impressive acceleration, but the suspension and brakes are stock and have been fully restored. Wide steel wheels have been painted to match the body, and combined with fat blackwall radials they give the truck a purposeful look. With over 1000 hours invested in the build, this is a first-rate truck that you can drive and show with confidence. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
