Few vehicles are as quintessentially American as the truck. And in the truck world, few names carry as much weight as Chevrolet. Despite rising costs, Chevy truck enthusiasts are some of the most loyal buyers in the market, making good use of their favorite models as workhorses, show queens and everything in between. That comes as no surprise when one realizes that, despite an ever-evolving automotive landscape, trucks simply never lose their appeal. And with that in mind, it should come as no surprise that the market for classic trucks is absolutely exploding. This national award-winning custom is the direct result of what happens when talented builders follow an acute plan that's founded on great details and top-notch workmanship. Looking for a classic that's guaranteed to make you weak in the knees? Take a long look at this sublime piece of Bowtie artistry!

AWARD-WINNING AESTHETICS

This national award-winning 3100 is the beneficiary of body-off, nut-and-bolt restoration that was completed by Cappel's Auto Restoration of Dickinson, Texas. That freshening began with a solid body that was carefully stripped and converted from a 3-window to a 5-window cab. Once that metal was fully prepped, Silky Jaguar Light Blue Metallic 2-stage was stretched from stem to stern. And today, this Chevy rolls as one sweet showstopper that provides instant red carpet curb appeal!

Naturally, the truck's professional rebuild included a roster of tasteful modifications. At the front of its body, a 1951 grille hangs clear parking lamps between a polished bumper, halogen headlights and a nosed hood. Behind that bonnet, a filled cowl fronts polished wipers, which clear a 1-piece windshield that leads a tinted greenhouse. Beneath that glass, a shaved profile centers polished door handles above painted running boards. At the back of those steps, a 1951 bed fashions custom Oak strips around a locking fuel filler and filled stake pockets. And at the back of the truck, billet caps shade sleeved chains, stainless-trimmed taillights and a custom roll pan.

UNIVERSAL POWER

Pop the hood and you'll find 350 cubic inches of buff Chevrolet crate engine. At the top of the smooth mill, a polished air cleaner rides a requisite 4-pot Holley, which drops a quick combination of air and fuel into a sporty Edelbrock intake. At the perimeter of that intake, iron GM heads seat polished valve covers between a polished breather and coated block hugger headers. Behind those tubes, a hot Mallory Unilite distributor fires loomed MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Opposite that unit, traditional V-belts twist billet pulleys between a polished alternator, polished power steering and a polished AC compressor. In front of those ancillaries, a large electric fan pulls air through a lightweight aluminum radiator. And details like a polished Mallory coil, and a finned and polished oil pan look great inside a massaged, Light Blue Metallic frame.

ENJOY THE DRIVE!

What good is great brawn and beauty without great athleticism and performance? Behind the small block, a tough Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed twists power to a proven Ford 9-inch axle. That torque is steered through power rack-and-pinion steering. That steering leads a Mustang II front-clip, which is trailed by a trick mono leaf rear-half. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to two power-assisted discs and two power-assisted drums. Aluminized pipes whisk spent gases through an H-shaped crossover, polished Magnaflow mufflers and polished stainless tips. At the corners of the chassis, polished Boyd Coddington wheels twist 245/45R18 Pirelli P Zero Rossos in front of 275/40ZR20 Pirelli P Zero Rossos. And everything, from the truck's polished flywheel cover to its stainless fuel tank, is well planned, well executed and ready to work its magic!

STYLED SUBSTANCE

Modified in the same tasteful manner as its timeless body, this truck's custom interior is an exercise in style and solitude. Front and center, a massaged dash hangs billet-ringed Beede telemetry next to modern Kenwood audio and modern Vintage Air climate control. Opposite that dash, a Glide Engineering bench adjusts forward, rearward, and reclines. Quality sound insulation keeps road noise out while a Pioneer amp, a Rockford Fosgate sub and crisp Pioneer kick speakers keep the tunes pumped within. And the driver stays connected to the road through a leather-wrapped Lecarra Banjo Wheel, which laps a tilting Ididit column.
