Classic Car Overview
1955 Chevrolet 3100 $26,995
This truck is truly rolling history at its finest. 1955 was the final year for the Advance Design trucks that got America moving again after WWII. This pickup really symbolizes the attitude that jump started us back into peacetime. With the wood rails on the wood truck bed makes it looks like it could still go to work today. But take a closer look. The extra gloss of the lumber matches nicely with the extra luster of the more modern application of the yellow and tan paint. And if its shine you like, the bumpers and two-piece wheels really add to this bright presentation. Plus, the way the panels fit on this pickup, let you know someone took the time in restoration to erase its workman past without erasing its historic appearance. Its the perfect balance of period-correct and premium.
The interior is still working-class all the way, but thats all part of the vintage truck appeal. The vinyl bench seat shows virtually no wear, and the same can be said for the door panels and rubber flooring. Pickups from the 1950s didnt come adorned with a long feature list, and that actually adds to this 3100s charm. This is part of an era where its heater was a valued option because it gave you a chance to warm up on your way home from working the day in the outdoors. Those are the kinds of things you think about from this trucks big airy and open cabin. You get to connect to a bygone era every time you grab the three-spoke steering wheel, rest your hand on the tall gearstick, and gaze at the large original gauge package.
Under the hood is a 261 cubic-inch inline six. Its an upgrade in displacement over what was available in the 3100 for 55 without losing the iconic Job Master/Stovebolt attitude. In fact, we know youll love showing off all the details, from the long blue motor, to the silver oil bath air cleaner, to all the correct markings. While this is not an all-out speed machine, the four-speed manual transmission ensures you are in complete control of the powerband. Besides, you dont buy a truck like this for all-out performance. Sure, a small block fits easily in the engine bay, but your largest enjoyment is watching others see you ride around town in this alluring package. And right now you get to do that with an intoxicating rhythmic chug that comes from true vintage truck motoring.
The Advance Design trucks were only in production for less than half of 55 before their successor started coming down the line. So a rare First Series pickup from 1955 always is a great distinction to have. And so when you look at the rarity, terrific presentation, and affordable price, you realize you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
