Head-Turning 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster Pickup
New to our Pleasanton showroom is this highly impressive 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster 2 Door Pickup with a Rust Patina exterior, “Vic Hubbard Speed Equipment” logos and a black vinyl interior. Don’t let the sleeper appearance fool you, however, because there’s a pro built 5.3L Vortec V-8 engine under the hood with a 4L60E automatic transmission, a 373 Posi rear end, a fully boxed frame, a Chevy S10 front end, 4 wheel disc brakes, an Accuair air-ride suspension and so much more. You’ll also find modern upgrades like cold air conditioning, rhino liner undercoating, power windows, 4 wheel power disc brakes and Dakota gauges.
This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster “Rat Rod” is in fantastic mechanical condition- it’s essentially a modern performance vehicle that deceptively looks like it was found last week in a rural field.
Gorgeous “Rat Rod” with World Class Performance
The current owner informs us that this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster Pickup was a labor of love that began back in 2015 to create a true “Rat Rod” build that could comfortably be driven from coast to coast and everywhere in-between. Despite the rusted exterior appearance, hundreds of hours went into this show truck to strengthen the frame and add every possible modern performance convenience. This pickup will cruise at 80 MPH along the highway with people staring in awe- it’s simply a really cool build that was completed the right way. The Vortec motor was rated at 250 horsepower which is essentially perfect for this pickup.
Additionally, this 1950 Chevrolet Thriftmaster Pickup is comfortable to ride in and does not sacrifice convenience for modern aesthetics. The interior appears like you’d expect from a classic example yet the air conditioning blows ice cold and the air ride suspension simply glides down the highway. While it’s certainly not comparable to a modern luxury vehicle, most collectors will be surprised at how modern this one feels on the open road.
An Incredible Value for One Lucky Collector
Overall, this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Thriftmaster Pickup is an awesome rat rod that one lucky collector is going to have a lot of fun with on the weekends. It would also make an optimal shop truck for a local garage or delivery business since people literally can’t stop staring at it. Come see this one in person before it’s gone- it’s a steal at the current asking price!
