Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1953

Up for auction is my 1953 Chevrolet 3100 half ton short bed pick up truck. This truck received a complete frame-off restoration in 2013 and has been driven sparingly. It is registered in New Jersey with the factory VIN numbers on the factory VIN plate still attached to the drivers door frame. The truck was built to drive around town as a reliable vehicle but only has less than 1,500miles since restoration. I have never been let down by this truck.


BODY

Frame off restoration of solid body and frame. Purchased as a whole truck. All original metal and VIN plate. Excellent body to start with.

1949 doors for a cleaner look without vent windows. The doors open and close good. Good body fit. Doors line up well. Occasionally on a rough road you will hear the drivers door latch rattle.

Gas filler neck and side vent on cab eliminated. Gas tank is under the bed with the filler neck and gas cap flush with the steel bed floor.

Radio slot on the dash filled in.

Bumpers were moved 2-1/2 inches closer to the body.

Original window frame trim has been polished.

Tailgate chains removed and replaced with tailgate latches.

Original type door panels match the seat color. New chrome interior mirror and outside mirror. New electric wipers.

MECHANICAL

350 Chevrolet vortec v8 completely rebuilt by a speed shop. Mild Cam ( just enough lope to sound healthy)

Holley carburetor.

New chrome engine parts, compressor, alternator, etc.

New aluminum finned valve covers and air cleaner.

350 turbo trasmission built by a speed shop with shift kit (shifts great) New locker shifter.

New 12 volt wiring throughout.

Quality parts were used throughout with extremely low miles on this build. I have hard copy pictures of the wild in a binder from the beginning to end which will be included. (Everyone at car shows loves the binder and says it makes the whole truck better)

This truck is low and loud. It never fails to draw a crowd. It runs and handles good. It is very fun to own and drive. Quality restoration performed by a craftsmen with over 40 years in the business.

Here is a good opportunity to get an already built, road ready truck that will turn heads wherever you go.
