Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1953

With its eye-catching exterior showing all those instantly recognizable vintage styling cues that have made the model so coveted among collectors - with just a little customization thrown into the mix - this 1953 Chevrolet 3100 is awesome in all respects. It's been the beneficiary of a thorough, frame off restoration at the hands of skilled professionals, so its curb appeal is off the charts and it's sporting some well-chosen mods to enhance its drivability in everyday conditions. ... This venerable pickup not only shows all the hallmarks of a great refurbishment, but there's also an inspired overall vision on display here. Take a lap around and you'll see that all of the exterior fittings are period correct and securely in place for an authentic appearance while the lowered stance adds a definite hotrod element. The magnetic red paint draped over the exterior really looks nice - it adds even more presence to a beloved classic already carrying its fair share of it and is very clean, with no blemishes and a strong shine - a professional buffing job will elevate its game even further. The Chevy pickups of this era sported seriously inspired front grilles, comprised of 5 beefy, horizontally oriented bars sitting just underneath the intricate Chevy emblem at the nose of the hood, and the one here is in top form, as is the balance of chrome on display here. The contrasting white Chevrolet lettering on the liftgate features a unique, vintage font - a sharp, distinguishing touch. The fresh interior shows plenty of skilled craftsmanship and a lot of cool details. The black vinyl bench seat at its center appears outright new - there's not a wrinkle or any discoloration over its entire surface - and its red pinstripes tie in perfectly with both the exterior and the tubular metal surround it's supported by. The contrasting, ultra-clean white dash blends perfectly with the door panels and recessed inside of it is a pair of Classic Instruments displays rimmed in chrome to keep tabs on vital motoring functions, while a Supertach gauge sits just below. Fresh rubber seals line the door openings and windows to keep the elements from intruding. An aftermarket climate control system has also been added, so the cruising will be nice and comfortable in this head-turning ride. The bed area on this truck is a standout - it's tastefully restored with a mild stain and sharp chrome inserts. You'll find quite an assembly of top quality components standing by underneath the hood in a very nicely detailed engine compartment. The 350 cubic inch crate engine at the center is equipped with Vortec heads, a 4-barrel Holley carb and an aftermarket intake manifold to up its output, while Centerbolt valve covers and a number of polished components add some eye candy. The powerplant sends a nice, deep note out of the headers leading to a dual exhaust as it pairs with a 4-speed automatic transmission. An upgraded ignition system maximizes available spark, while the aluminum radiator pairs with an electric fan up front to help keep operating temperatures in check. Tubular front control arms sit in place of the originals to offer both a cooler look and increased caster for better handling, while power steering makes for easy navigation. You'll also find power disc brakes at all four corners to bring this Chevy classic's set of 16" steel wheels with Chevrolet-lettered hubcaps to quick stops. Maxing out in the appearance department while harboring just the right collection of components to provide a great experience behind the wheel, this 1953 Chevrolet 3100 is a "must-see". Call today!
