Classic Car Overview

1954 Chevrolet 3100 $19,995

Fort Worth, TX Dark Blue · 235 I6 · 1,530 miles
This 1954 Chevy 3100 pickup shows you where the market has gone in just a few short years. It wasnt long ago when these were so inexpensive that they were practically disposable, but today the collector truck market has moved these wonderful pickups into the realm of genuine collectors items.

First off, no truck in 1954 ever looked this good. The paint is a beautiful deep blue with great depth of the shine and the surface is almost too nice for commercial work. If youre looking for a truck that fits together well and hasnt been worked to death, this is it, and while the paint job is older and shows some signs of use, theres no denying this Chevy has a great look. The Advance Design pickups have that perfect blend of old school curves and rugged practicality, which perhaps shows best out back, where the lovely fenders are bolted to the bed, which, by the way, is lined with wood that has a wonderful patina, while the sides and tailgate are protected by color-matched spray-on bedliner material. The 54s got a new grille, which in this trucks case was color-matched to the bodywork, and the few pieces of chrome that are in place look great against the dark blue paint. Its not perfect, but it has a great look that suits an old pickup truck just fine.

The interior is simple, but with a cloth and suede seat cover, its far more comfortable than the original vinyl. A rubber mat was standard equipment, too, with simple door panels and lightly padded armrests, all framed by the steel door itself. The dash is nicely finished, with two large instrument pods holding the original gauges that are in great shape and fully operational. Theres also an auxiliary tach under the dash. Seat belts and turn signals have been added for a bit of extra safety, and since this truck was built for the road, youll surely appreciate them when youre out for a drive or heading up to the home center for supplies. Theres also a working factory AM radio, which is rather a rare find, both because this is a pickup and, well, early AM radios rarely work. Nice, right?

This pickup carries the larger 235 cubic inch inline-six, which was rated at 105 horsepower and a very respectable 193 pounds of torque. This one is a little more potent thanks to a period Wayne dual carburetor setup with a matching set of exhaust headers. It was rebuilt about two years and 1500 miles ago, and theres a .040 overbore inside, an upgraded cam, and a 1958 head on top, all of which help build power that you can really use. An electronic ignition system lights it up and its neatly dressed with a period finned aluminum valve cover, top and side. Underneath, its clean and straight with no issues, and all the hardware is in great condition and ready to work or play, with the dual exhaust pipes exhaling into a single Flowmaster muffler for a great soundtrack. The 3-speed manual transmission shifts well, the rear gears are good for around-town driving and light highway work, and the stock suspension remains in place. Factory steel wheels have been painted to match the body and fitted with hubcaps and a set of 215/85/16 BFG radials.

Its easy to understand why these trucks are so popular with collectors, and his one hits all the right notes with great upgrades and a nice look. Call today!
