Classic Car Overview

1951 Chevrolet 3100 $24,995

Lutz, FL Matte Blue · 350 V8 · 87,519 miles
Confidence is cool, and patina shows a self-assurance thats becoming red-hot right now. But joining this rat rod crowd doesnt mean giving up creature comforts beyond the tough appearance. Although this truck may look like it sat in a navy yard for 30 years, this 1951 GMC/Chevrolet pickup body hides some exciting modern conveniences that will make any classic enthusiast happy.

For starters, this body is all about being secretly rewarding. The solid 1951 cab and bed have been sprayed to look like it has spent a lifetime being a workhorse. The matte blue paint is a fresh spray that was given the unique appearance with the patina added. The Navy markings and fighting squadron logo on the doors only further this tough-as-nails attitude. The Navy wooden chest and ropes in the truck bed enhance this burly nautical theme, too. While this is a Chevy body with an updated frame, playing into this pickups cool potpourri theme even more is a front end from a more unique GMC sibling. And as interesting as all of this is, no one would ever call this pickup a hodgepodge. Because even with the simulated patina, the shine of the front bumper, whitewall tires, and lowered stance instantly let everyone know theres something much more going on here.

The interior is still working class all the way, but thats all part of the vintage truck appeal. The fresh brown vinyl on the bench seat and door panels adds a hint of sophistication to go with the trucks industrial toughness. But this one plays the part of survivor truck quite well, and it even hides its upgrades. For example, its hard to spot the newer tilt steering column, because the factory-style GMC wheel disguises it so well. Instead, this one embraces its Art Deco styling that makes these vintage pickups so desirable.

While theyve disguised the upgrades on the exterior and interior, the engine bay tells a different story. Not only has this been upgraded with Chevys trusty and powerful 350 cubic-inch V8, but also it has received a host of Edelbrock enhancements. This includes the valve covers, air topper, and performance intake. Plus, Holley supplied the four-barrel carburetor. Theres even long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. But dont just listen to them roar; check out their path in the undercharge photos. There youll also spot other great features like the updated chassis with an independent front suspension, thick sway bar, and air ride rear. Theres even front disc brakes and power steering. So if this is starting to sound like a patina pickup thats great to drive anywhere near or far, youd be quite right. It even has other great long-haul upgrades like a Champion aluminum radiator and a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive.

The patina is an attitude that tells the world you have a different definition of cool. This one draws attention wherever it goes, and its built to comfortably take you everywhere. Call today!!!
