Classic Car Overview

For consignment, the beneficiary of an 8 year long, full nut and bolt restoration after being purchased from a family friend whos uncle had stored this truck in a barn, (photos included). This former worker bee come show winner has attained its AACA Jr award at Hershey 2013 and AACA Sr at Gettysburg 2013. Done to factory exacting standards and looking better than anything that rolled off the assembly line, I challenge you to find a nicer 3100. Exterior This curvaceous truck is bathed in 2 tone green on its straight steel rust free panels, and curving fenders. Light green bathes the cab, hood and bed, meanwhile Forester Green, in the deep end of the pool is on the fenders and running boards. This paint and bodywork was performed by Chris Classic Restoration of Frederick, MD. Up front, a grille in bright and shiny chrome matchs the curve of the hood and below is a chromed curved single bumper and a large Chevrolet badge which undulates around the rounded hood. Single headlights on the front of rounded over bump out fenders, and the turn signal lights within the grille, and remember this was an option in 1949! The large hood rests up to the split windshield with near perfect glass, and a nicely rounded over single door cab sits behind the hood. Below this cab, and behind the front fender right at the rocker is a Forester Green metal running board/step up which extends into the rear pickup bed for access to the front of the bed. Behind this is another nicely rounded fender which flanks either side of the straight steel bed. The bed is lined with black stained wood offsetting the light green side nicely and appears to never have been used. Taillights and a single chrome bumper hang from the sides and back on this truck. Black wall tires are all around and have chromed moon caps in the centers of black steel wheels. Interior Saddle vinyl mixes with light green colored metal for the doors, dash, and headliner. A saddle bench seat, which is like new, stretches from door to door and has no tears or holes. The restored metal dash showing perfectly, also in light green color, sports its dual round gauge cluster and speedometer in front of the big steering wheel. A central chromed horizontal ribbed speaker cover, and inserted ashtray and passenger glove box, has a chrome radio delete above, and a chrome Chevrolet badge band. Black rubber waterproof and dirt free rubber flooring is seen below as well as a black headliner above. Drivetrain Flipping the hood, we are greeted with a beautifully restored machine age gray engine which is a 216.5ci Inline 6 cylinder. A 1-barrel carburetor sits below an oil bath air cleaner system, and a 3-speed manual transmission is on back. Overall, the engine bay is redone to original, well detailed, taken care of and looking wonderful Undercarriage A sandblasted and powder coated black frame provides the support for the light green floor pans, body hangers, rockers and bed underside are all looking better than new with no apparent wear or surface rust. Leaf spring suspension is all around and drum brakes present on all 4 corners. A stock replacement single exhaust is in charge of the exhale. Drive-Ability A fine and nicely restored working truck is always a pleasure to drive, as it has a simplicity that always brings a smile to my face. This truck did not disappoint on the performance front with smooth acceleration, good easy shifting, and it got me down the road. All functions were in working order. A full on nut and bolt restoration along with both an AACA Jr & AACA Sr make it even more special, and shes ready for the next round, and leaving you with the ability to keep on trucking and lookin good! Lets go to work!
