Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

A patina truck is always about delivering more than meets the eye, and this 1948 Chevrolet 3100 shows that perfectly. After all, the worn-in look has extra gloss on the outside and theres even V8 power and an overdrive transmission within. Its hard not to fall in love with the patina look on a classic pickup. After all, we want a vintage truck to be a tough-as-nails workhorse, and this puts its enduring legacy on display. But theres much more to love about this one than just its stamina. It has a sporty look with the added gloss to the patina. The lowered suspension draws your eyes to the front end where they have conveniently removed the bumper so you can get an excellent look at the hallmark 5-bar chrome grille. Those modern 17-inch Intro alloys with the extra wide rear rubber hint at upgrades beneath the skin. Even with all this, theres some great classic attitude seen everywhere from the windshield sunshade to the real wood in the truck bed. Plus, the South Seas Distillery livery on the side is part of a package that includes a rum barrel and pirate treasure chest that go in this truck. Inside the patina continues with a ton of custom touches, too. For example, we know your eyes are immediately drawn to the two-tone bench thats supple to the touch and has nice bolstering. This custom setup is even repeated on the doors. Plus, theres plenty of custom copper trim everywhere from the headliner to the center console. While this has the classic steering wheel and worn-in gauges, your real driving experience is upgraded with everything from a Lokar shifter to a full set of Stewart Warner auxiliary readouts. The engine bay has some fun with a distillery-like overflow bottle and an air topper that advertises this as a Rum Runner . But what youll really like about this is the power upgrade. After all, a 305 cubic-inch small block V8 and a four-barrel carburetor is a much more powerful setup that anything you got in an original 3100. And you even get great supporting components, like the upgraded aluminum radiator. Plus, the glasspack-style side exhaust loves to announce this upgrade. But this trucks real reward is revealed when you look at the undercarriage photos. There youll see a much more modern chassis, that includes an independent front end, power front disc brakes, power steering, and a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. So while this truck looks like it spent its life out in the field, it drives like a modern machine. This is a cool patina truck with a ton of custom upgrades. So its amazing a one-of-a-kind machine like this can be so obtainable. Call now!
