Description for Chevrolet 3100 1951

We love classic pickups because they make everybody smile. A truck like this 1951 Chevrolet 3100 5-window pickup looks like it has a 10,000-watt chrome grin, because it's so fresh off of a full restoration, you'll be the first one to get it to double-digit mileage.
Take a moment to look over every inch of this one, because you're looking at a time machine. This pickup's exterior has been restored to get you back to 1951. It starts with the Fathom Green paint. It's the perfect color for what you picture when imagining an iconic '50s pickup. And the level of gloss and shine on this fresh restoration makes sure that it grabs attention on every sunny Sunday drive. Plus, truck people always recognize optional rear quarter glass that makes this the desirable five-window pickup. The pristine brightwork gives this one even more standout presence with the tall art deco grille, chrome bumpers, complete trim, and correct badging. And don't let the shine block you from seeing the details. The grille correctly has white paint behind the chrome; the two-piece wheels have the Chevrolet lettering in red; and the real lumber in the truck bed feels fresh and smooth. This is the difference that comes from investing in a full restoration that has so few miles on it.
Inside, the time machine feeling continues, but with a few nice upgrades. For example, the black door panels are stronger and the arm rests are better padded that original. Plus, the dash has a mirror-like shine, the headliner is exceptionally fresh, and even the interior light works. And when you sit down, the bench seat with modern bolstering and comfortable cloth inserts make the miles feel so much nicer. But while the details have been covered better than any vintage truck you've looked at before, it never loses the atmosphere that instantly reminds you of the pride in an honest day's work. The driver gets the kind of three-spoke embossed steering wheel that was purely functional decades ago, but today it is beautifully artistic. Behind that is an original gauge cluster with readouts for the fuel, water temperature, oil pressure, and battery. After all, this pickup is from a time when people wanted to know just that vital info.
Lift the hood, and the straight-six motor was restored to be impressive in a very unique way. A truck this honest on the outside could never have a chrome-filled engine bay. Instead, the glossy gray Chevy block and head cover draws all the attention to the Thriftmaster, perfectly stenciled in yellow. The whole motor screams originality, but you can tell everything from the distributor to the oil bath air cleaner are much more "spick-n-span" then the days when this pickup was a daily workhorse. And just because this is now a valued classic, does not mean you have to ever worry about getting any job done. In fact, you're actually looking at a more powerful 235 cubic-inch motor. The engine still produces the kind of torque that made these an industrial legend, and the three-on-the-tree manual transmission further enhances its usability. Overall, going for a drive in this pickup is a fun experience thanks to the great rhythmic hum from a motor that doesn't know how to quit.
We know you've looked at everything, right down to the undercarriage photos. It proves to you how clean and fresh this restored Chevy is. The 3100 series trucks are red hot right now, and this one is the cream of the crop. Don't miss out, call today!
