A nicely done two tone paint job over a very solid, straight body combines with a restored interior and plenty of smooth, dependable power to make this 1949 Chevrolet 3100 a truly great score for a lucky classic truck enthusiast.
The two tone green and black paint is a great color scheme for this 49 featuring nice pin stripping, newly chromed hub caps, nice wood bed and very straight original 1949 sheet metal. Upfront, the grille and bumper have been repainted to match the body nicely and give the truck a great look. The 5 window 3100s are highly desirable and hard to find in this great of shape. The undercarriage appears to be lightly restored with all new rubber and is very original. Overall, the body is in excellent shape and the pickup has smoked windows.
The interior is nicely restored with a new black vinyl bench seat, small door panels and a vinyl floor covering. The dash and inside of the doors were painted the same green color as the body and really pops. Sitting inside brings you back to a time when interiors were very minimal and did not have all the modern thrills were used to today. Gauges include a speedometer, coolant temperature, oil pressure and amperage gauge.
Under the hood is a factory correct original 216 cubic inch straight six engine that runs strong and provides plenty of smooth power to the rear wheels through the original 3 speed transmission. The motor runs great, the transmission shifts smooth, drives straight down the road and stops good. Overall this is a great looking, running and driving 3100 pickup with many factory parts on it. Car show ready and is guaranteed to get lots of compliments!
