Pickup trucks are just a popular segment in the classic car hobby as muscle cars are, and the early 50''s Chevy 3100 is certainly one of the higher demand pickups to have. This 1952 Chevrolet 3100 brings traditional style and major custom touches to a package that is appealing enough to show or cruise around town in. It''s probably not hard to realize that the burgundy paint on this 3100 wasn''t a factory option in 1952, but it''s definitely hard to argue that the smooth hue doesn''t look great on the body of this pickup. The handsome color lays flat on the truck''s body panels and it''s hard to find any flaws. That paint is highlighted by a great looking chrome grill up front with a ''Chevrolet'' badge that appears to have seen very little wear or fading. There is a chrome bumper under that grill, and out back is another chrome bumper is topped by chrome tail lights. Take a peek inside that pickup bed and you''ll fall in love with the stained oak panels that line the bed and look absolutely great. With that body sitting on 16'''' 5-spoke Torque Thrust wheels it''s an exterior package that looks very cool, but subdued at the same time. Inside is a custom interior that is a welcoming environment for Sunday drives and Saturday cruise-ins. It features cloth bucket seats that have been sourced from a late model car. Between those buckets is a custom console that serves as an arm rest with a convenient storage compartment inside. The dash is painted silver and remains in its traditional configuration with the addition of four auxiliary gauges from Classic Industries to measure volts, fuel level, oil pressure, and water temperature. Controls for the air conditioning are mounted underneath, while a long gear selector for the transmission is within easy reach of the driver. Connecting the driver is a modern steering wheel that sits on a tilting column. Lift the hood to a very attractive engine bay that features silver paint lining the fenders and firewall. Nestled inside is 350 cubic inch V8 that has been dressed up with a chrome air cleaner, chrome valve covers, and a polished alternator. That small block has been beefed up with a Holley carburetor, a Weiand intake manifold, Delco electronic ignition, and after market headers. Dual electric fans keep things cool, and it exhales spent gasses through a stainless steel dual exhaust system with glasspack mufflers for an aggressive sound. A 3-speed automatic transmission handles shifting duties, while an independent rear end from a Chevy Corvette takes care of the traction. A rack and pinion front end has been installed and supplemented with power steering and power four-wheel disc brakes. This ''52 Chevy 3100 is a great truck to take out and enjoy. You may be a little hesitant to take it to the hardware store for a sheetrock run, but you certainly won''t think twice about showing it off at the local cruise-in and shows. Call today!
