Classic Car Overview

This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 loves the custom details. After all, this is an all-steel custom build with chopped roof, upgraded V8 power, overdrive transmission, and an overall style that was made to cruise easily and turn heads while doing it. An understated yellow and orange two-tone is an attractive way to give this truck distinguished style. Its a modern application with a hint of metallic flake that really makes it pop. We love how this kind of shine adds extra definition to the rounded fenders and trim-free smooth hood. And there are other classic details, like the five-bar grille, two-piece windshield, shining chrome bumpers, and color-matched wheels with two-piece trim. But while this pays tribute to the iconic elements, it also is not stuck in the past. After all, the big investment in the smoothly chopped cab roof makes sure everyone knows this is something special. And the lowered stance, cat-eye headlights, and large dual exhaust tips are all part of this sporty style. Its all a cool mix of vintage and upgraded, and the best place to really understand that is the bed. The open tailgate really lets you see the classic wood on the floor. But the smooth polished aluminum sides and bright tanks also show off a hot rod kind of flair. Just like the exterior, the interior gives you the right upgrades without losing the vintage feel. The classic bench is gone, and you have a more contoured setup with wide headrests and a fold-down armrest for individual comfort. Theres also an overall quality feel to this build. Its in the way the weather-stripping remains fresh/pliable and the doors have a smooth action that signal this has been treated correctly. There are also fun details, like how the smooth door panel inserts match the bed, and the gray tweed headliner is embossed with the Chevy bow tie and this trucks model year. The dash has a true vintage look, but there are the right upgrades for driving. Theres an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input and upgraded speakers. Plus, the NK4 sports steering wheel, tilt column, and auxiliary gauge trio make this a good cruiser. The engine bay has the tidy look of a solid investment. Color-matched inner walls look great, and the smooth polished aluminum firewall coordinates with the look of the finned valve covers and air grabber for a thoughtful presentation. More than just look good, this is a powerful setup. You have a 350 cubic-inch V8 upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. Its a nice power package, and they also made sure to upgrade this so that you can show it all off with ease. That means features like power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission that delivers high-friendly overdrive. This the cool custom classic that fires up easily, runs with gusto, and has the features to get you down the road smoothly. That makes for an iconic Chevy that youre going to love driving.
