From Task Force beauties to venerable S-10s, Chevrolet has spent the last hundred years consistently delivering universally appealing trucks for purists and hot rodders alike. This clean 3100 is a great example of a solid slice of Americana that's benefitted from solid restoration. Ready for a pickup you'll be proud to show off? Take a close look at this awesome Chevy!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Stored in a climate-controlled private collection, this mint Chevy has been meticulously rebuilt to preserve all the innate appeal of GM's popular Advance Design aesthetic. The truck's expressive body is glossed in a timeless coat of Forester Green 2-stage that, according to the previous owner, has never seen a drop of rain. And fresh factory trim and tasteful Cream pinstripes highlight acute attention to detail. At the front of the truck's split-window fuselage, a deluxe stainless grille centers stainless-trimmed parking lamps between clean headlights and a guarded bumper. Behind that grille, a Chevrolet-branded hood fronts fresh glass that's founded on polished frames, polished wipers and dainty mirrors. Those mirrors reflect Chevrolet-branded running boards under factory handles, guarded locks and a polished fuel cap. At the back of those boards, highly varnished rails hang vintage Sinclair signage above highly varnished planks, which are detailed with painted skid strips. And at the back of those strips, a “CHEVROLET” branded tailgate reflects sleeved chains, polished lamps and a second chrome bumper that traces bowtie-branded exhaust.

ENGINE

Hoist this pickup's domed hood and you'll find 235 cubic inches of Thriftmaster 6-cylinder that, according to their 3837004 casting number, “H” suffix code and C 28 7 casting date, originated in 1957. Introduced for use in large platforms, and regarded as one of the all-time great Chevrolet powerplants, the Thriftmaster is a favorite among vintage GM truck buyers because of its simple design, adequate power and excellent durability. A petite Rochester carburetor and AC-branded air cleaner combine with stainless fluid lines and a tagged Delco-Remy generator to keep the engine clean and functional. And items like satin fenders, a flashy “Thriftmaster” decal and clean gray block skin tame the trustworthy mill in to appealing eye candy.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Bottom-side, power meets the ground through a traditional Muncie 4-speed and driver friendly rear end. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all four corners of the chassis, mixing rugged road prowess with firm and solid stops. A single-pipe exhaust system, which is wired to a large muffler, runs the whole length of the truck. And everything rolls on stainless-trimmed steelies, which turn 6.70-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion whitewalls around red-trimmed Chevrolet hubcaps.

INTERIOR

When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a factory-fresh cockpit that's full of utilitarian charm. A brown bench seat complements brown door panels, a brown headliner and a black floor mat. And a “CHEVROLET” branded steering wheel laps fully restored gauges and a factory heater.

If you're looking for a traditional classic that mixes quality restoration with unmatched style and unparalleled fun, this truck deserves your full attention. It's spectacular from every angle. It plays to nostalgia and Americana that everyone can appreciate. And it's a highly drivable piece that actually FEELS like vintage hardware. So, what are you waiting for? Grab the phone, park this Chevy in your garage and get ready for years of carefree cruising!
