As General Motors' stalwart mass-market brand, Chevrolet has produced years of innovative and desirable offerings that run the gamut from basic work vans to mid-engine super cars. And, when it comes to restoration, dedicated fans of the bowtie division have a rich legacy of preserving unique and exceptionally well-done classics that cause a big stir every time they roll out of the garage. A cool head turner that celebrates the all-American swagger of vintage pickups, this polished 3100 capitalizes on GM's timeless design and Chevy's universal appeal. And, whether you're a diehard Chevrolet fan, an old school truck lover or just a curious buyer who's looking for something a bit traditional, it's a cool collectible that 'fires on all cylinders'!

FACTORY FINE

Dressed and ready to roll, this clean Chevy has been meticulously rebuilt to preserve all the innate appeal of GM's popular Advance Design aesthetic. Speaking of clean, the truck's expressive body panels have been bathed in a traditional coat of Mariner Blue 2-stage. Under that retro pigment, a straight fuselage features solid panels that have benefitted from a detailed, frame-off restoration. And overall, this road-ready cruiser carries every indication that its high-quality reboot was a well-planned effort.

SIMPLE IS GOOD

Hoist this pickup's domed hood and you'll find 216 cubic inches of Thriftmaster 6-cylinder that, according to the 3835849 casting number and “LBA” prefix code, is correct to 1953. 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 rebuilt Rochester carburetor and AC Delco TV-R Suppression Cables join a tagged Delco-Remy starter and a tagged Delco-Remy generator to keep the engine clean and functional. And items like gray block skin, a flashy “Thriftmaster” decal and an orange-capped oil canister tame the trustworthy mill in to appealing eye candy.

TIME-TESTED

Crawling under this classy bowtie reveals a clean frame and solid floorpans that have been coated in a nice layer of Satin Black skin. Power meets the ground through a traditional 3-speed, which twists torque to a tough 10-bolt axle. 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 begins with a cast iron manifold and progresses through a factory replacement muffler. And everything rolls on Satin Black steelies, which turn 6.00-16 BF Goodrich Silvertowns around glossy, Chevrolet-branded hubcaps.

THE BRIGHTEST SPOT

When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a crisp vinyl cockpit that wraps era-correct charm in silky Champagne paint. A requisite vinyl seat complements small door panels, a tight headliner and a black floor mat. A “CHEVROLET” branded steering wheel laps fully restored telemetry. And luxuries are appropriately sparse, with a small heater and a small rearview mirror caging a requisite radio delete.

Whether it's simple nostalgia or their long list of extremely useful virtues, one thing is certain: trucks NEVER go out of style. And when they're built this well, they seem to never fade away. If you're in the market for something that's classy and cool, don't miss the chance to claim this bona fide 3100!
