Description:

What if you could have a truck that looks like 1956 but drives like a muscle car? Well, here''s the answer to your question, a spectacular 1956 Chevy 3100 pickup with a modern Corvette LT1 inside plus a cabin full of luxury options. Talk about having your cake and eating it too! Painted an updated, semi-metallic version of the old favorite Hunter Green, this Cameo pickup represents the first of the pickups that were actually styled by designers rather than merely engineered. As a result, they carry a lot of automotive-inspired design cues, and if you see a little bit of Shoebox Chevy in the design, the coincidence is purely intentional. Of course, the fact that it was finished to show standards certainly helps, and there''s not a ripple, dent, pockmark, or dent anywhere on the beautiful surface of this truck. The paint is about a mile deep, and has been rubbed and buffed to a mirror-like shine. Enhancing the upscale look is a beautifully finished and slightly rustic knotty pine bed with polished stainless strips that tie in with the bright chrome bumpers and brilliantly restored grille. Nothing has been deleted or shaved, which should tell you something about how right the original design really was. Instead, they focused on making it right and they''ve definitely succeeded in a very big way. This truck is incredible! Black leather is the dominant theme inside, with the original bench seat reupholstered in modern leather and what appears to be ostrich skin for the inserts. It retains a ''50s sensibility, but the modern materials will definitely attract more than their fair share of appreciative nods at shows. Simple door panels were covered in matching black leather and beautifully bound black carpets soften the interior considerably, and help control noise and temperature inside. The dash uses a set of Dakota Digital gauges in the original panel, and A/C vents have been discreetly tucked underneath. A tilt wheel with a custom billet wheel adds to the 21st century feel, as well as the Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash, with speakers scattered throughout the cab. Underneath that beautiful green sheetmetal, you''ll find a very OEM-looking chassis. Up front there''s a 350 cubic inch Corvette LT1 V8 that looks very much like a factory installation. Instead of flash, you get function and reliability, along with easy serviceability. It''s clever that the painted it Chevy Orange, so it looks right between the vintage truck''s wheel wells. Power steering and power front disc brakes make this truck a pleasure to drive, and the Mustang II style front suspension gives it agile handling, particularly for a pickup. A 4L60E 4-speed automatic clicks through the gears, feeding a GM 10-bolt rear hanging on a set of stout leaf springs that mean this truck can still work for a living. Long-tube headers and a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system gives it just a little bit of rumble, but it doesn''t intrude, making this truck an easy long-distance hauler. Staggered chrome wheels emulate vintage Torque Thrusts and wear 225/50/18 front and 275/40/20 rear performance rubber. This is a no-compromises truck built to very high standards, and you''ll be proud to call it your own. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
