In a perfect world, we could all enjoy unabashedly vintage toys without fear of reliability issues, cost or some freak accident ruining a prized possession. Unfortunately, that's not reality, and most classics integrate a fair amount of late-model hardware to increase both safety and reliability. Take this handsome 3100, for example. Wrapping tasteful aesthetics around a fresh TCI chassis, a fuel-injected stroker motor and a trusty 700R4, this all-American Chevy is a great driver that mixes hot performance with proven style. And if you're looking for a timeless ride with a bit of muscle car flare, it's your ticket to endless fun!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Fully sorted and ready to roll, this super cool Chevy is the beneficiary of a 3-year, frame-off restoration. Under the truck's sophisticated Charcoal and Metallic Silver 2-stage, a fully stripped fuselage incorporates solid replacement panels that, for the most part, were sourced from LMC Truck. Those panels feature better-than-factory alignment and, when opened and closed, sound solid and function exceptionally well. And that body's combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggest many labor-intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch finish work.

While the basic shape of the Advanced Design Series is certainly appealing, first-rate detailing is what makes this pickup really pop. At the front of the truck, a polished bumper guards a polished grille, which centers small parking lamps between a broad “CHEVROLET” script and modern headlights. That script leads a long hood, which fronts stainless wipers that clear a stainless-trimmed 5-window cab. Beneath those wipers, a simplistic profile reflects fresh emblems and correct door handles in a small driver's mirror. Behind those handles, a spectacular wood bed, sourced from Bed Wood, hides a relocated fuel filler under polished skid strips. And behind that filler, a second polished bumper frames a “CHEVROLET” branded tailgate, leather-sleeved chains and Polished Blue Dot Taillights.

ENGINE

Pop the hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches of GM Performance Parts ZZ383 that's been polished, rebuilt and fitted with FAST EZ-EFI 2.0 fuel injection. That self-tuning throttle body gets aired by a Cadillac-style filter, which rides opposite a high-rise Chevrolet intake. At the perimeter of that intake, painted center-bolt valve covers hang polished bowtie breathers over monochromatic block hugger headers. Behind those breathers, a traditional points distributor shoots spark through loomed Chevrolet plug wires. At the front of those looms, billet serpentine components spin a polished alternator, a polished AC compressor, a Stewart water pump and Detroit Speed power steering. And at the front of those ancillaries, a beefy radiator pairs a polished cap and a polished expansion tank with a giant, electric puller fan. Despite being a thoroughly massaged piece, the Fire Engine Red mill looks right at home in the truck's body-matched engine compartment. And details like trick dipsticks, urethane motor mounts, braided fluid lines and a quality Lokar throttle linkage mix first-rate looks with first-rate functionality.

DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSION

Slide under this rig and you'll find a fresh undercarriage that's founded on a choice Total Cost Involved chassis. At the front of those Charcoal bones, a trusty Mustang II suspension balances 2-inch drop spindles and modern coil-over-shocks behind an upgraded sway bar and power rack-and-pinion steering. Opposite that clip, a 9-inch Ford axle spins a posi-traction differential around big, 3.73 gears. That pumpkin twists 31-spline shafts thanks to a tweaked 700R4 4-speed. That momentum is countered by an 8-inch brake booster, which charges stainless lines to clamp four calipers around 11-inch, vented discs. The aforementioned headers dump spent gases in to painted pipes, which employ dual-chamber Flowmaster mufflers. The floors wear quality undercoating, which looks great against a red powertrain and Metallic Silver drivetrain components. And at the corners of those pans, custom-ordered Artilleries, sourced from The Wheel Smith, spin 215/65R17 Falken Ziex in front of 255/55R18 Falken Ziex tires.

INTERIOR

In the '50s, trucks were all about comfort and utility – not DVDs, wireless and navigation systems. That's why it's so refreshing to hop in the cab of this purposeful but nicely appointed 3100. The star of the show is a red leather bench that definitely ups the style quotient. Below that seat, fade-free carpet rides tight under billet foot pedals, color-keyed floor mats and stainless door sills. Above that carpet, ornate door panels found small armrests and traditional chrome handles beneath polished window frames. At the front of the cockpit, a stylish dash hides reliable Painless Wiring behind color-matched Classic Instruments telemetry. Vintage Air SureFit air conditioning hides in the glovebox, next to the truck's FAST fuel injection controller. And the driver feels the road through a polished and half-wrapped steering wheel that laps a polished and tilting column.
