Classic Car Overview
This 1953 Chevy pickup (3100) was originally restored in 2009 to be a driver. It was restored by Lodgeploe Restoration, (Ken Way) with 60 years experience. Ken worked on these pickups when they were new. He knew exactly how they were put together and how to restore them. This pickup has a 261 engine with a 3 speed overdrive transmission, making it capable of running highway speeds. It will easily run 85 mph. Ken knows all the tricks to make them run better than most (i.e., hardened valve seats, high compression pistons, altered valve timing, etc.). Although it looks like a show pickup it’s really intended to be driven. I have put 10,000 miles on this pickup since it was restored. I would not hesitate to drive it from California to New York. It is currently set up to burn gasoline or LP. It is very easy to remove the propane conversion. This pickup has most of the options that were available in 1953: Spotlight, radio, extremely rare windshield washer, spare tire carrier lock, and bumper guards.
The photos provided here were taken the same day this ad was posted. I have included some photos of the restoration. I also have a 1946 teardrop trailer that I pull behind this pickup. It makes a very desirable set. I will sell the teardrop separately.
