Classic Car Overview

This award-winning, professionally restored 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Big Window pickup is one of those builds where you can see a high level of attention to detail in every single component. Not merely assembled, but rather built with an eye towards making even the little stuff look right, this sinister-looking classic is gorgeous to look at and wonderful to drive. If youre looking for the toughest Task Force Series pickup in town, you just found it. Dark shades always look great on well-built classic pickups, and this 3100 is certainly no faded old farm truck. That modern Dark Gray basecoat/clearcoat finish is quite the head turner, wonderfully complemented by the blacked-out accents and trim found throughout. With all that curb appeal, this one seems to have always led a good life before it was ever restored, showing off crisp, clean lines, laser-straight panels, and numerous coats of shiny, lustrous, strong driver-quality paint. Finished recently, its obvious that this was an expensive restoration that got all the details right, and although it isnt some perfect trailer queen, any flaws are minimal and would most likely be eradicated with a buff-and-wax detail. The paint and bodywork look great in person, and because this high-end driver was finished to such a strong level, it feels right at home just about anywhere. Its easy to see why these trucks were a hit in their day, with the forward-canted fenders that make it look fast even sitting still and a handsome blacked-out egg crate grille that linked Chevys truck line with their automotive offerings. The profile crease that runs from the headlights to the back of the cab and is picked up again in the rear fenders is sharp and well-defined and we especially like the utilitarian look of the black accent paint on the front grille, hood badge, side mirrors and door handles, windshield trim, and the Chevrolet script on the tailgate. As is customary with a vintage pickup build the bed has been finished with beautiful dark wood boards and black rub strips that tie them together, and with smoothed bed walls and tailgate that were treated with black bedliner, a relocated gas cap, and several coats of dark stain on the wood, the bed looks like a traveling dance floor. Blacked-out bumpers fore and aft look substantial and match the other blacked-out accents, although the shiny bright windshield wipers, taillight light surrounds, and Torque Thrust alloys do a great job to off-set the dark theme while adding some much-needed bling. Open those big doors and youll quickly see that everything was updated inside, with the original bench seat replaced by sculpted bucket seats swapped-in from a late-model. Wrapped in gorgeous black vinyl upholstery punctuated with light gray tweed inserts, the seats are virtually unmarked, as are the custom matching door panels that flank them. Theres also a custom-made center console that was finished to look like it always belonged there, and it adds the practicality of a pair of cup holders, a place for a pair of booming speakers, and extra storage. Even with the restoration the cab retains a 50s sensibility inside thanks to the original dash that was painted to match the exterior, but the modern components like the Dakota Digital gauges and AutoMeter tachometer will definitely attract plenty of appreciative nods at shows. Black spray-in bedliner protects the floors and cleans-up easily, while the headliner was finished in the same tweed found in the seats. A chrome leather-wrapped steering wheel mounted atop a tilt column anchors the cabin, with the super-cool Jack Daniels knob on the shifter is a great conversation piece. The modern JVC head unit in the center of the dash powers the aforementioned BOSS speakers in the console, and that bright red push-button starter lets everyone know this truck is ready to launch at a moments notice. The curved big rear window and matching front windshield give the truck a fishbowl feel thats simply awesome, although the dark tint adds plenty of privacy for the occupants. The 327 V8 that powers this 3100 is a lot more powerful than anything you could get in 55, and thats a good thing. Swapped-in from a moid-60s Chevrolet and built right, this 3100 now runs and drives like a much faster truck, with lots of power and torque at the ready. With so few miles reported on the build its turn-key and ready to dominate for years, fed through dual Holley 4-barrel carburetors and a high-rise Weiand aluminum intake up top. Black inner fenders and a matching firewall continue the trucks color scheme, the block itself was coated in Chevy Orange enamel, and brightly polished valve covers and a trick, blower-style air breather add a touch of flash under the hood. Block-hugging, long-tube headers feed into a stainless dual exhaust system that features booming glasspack-style mufflers and turn-down before the rear axle, so dont expect to sneak up on anyone, while the giant aluminum radiator keeps the whole show nice and cool. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the small blocks power with ease, as does the heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end out back. Underneath youll find a very clean presentation that features newer shocks all-around and an upgraded front clip, and power steering and power front disc brakes joined the party as well meaning this truck has pretty much everything it needs to be a dependable, fun, and spirited driver. American Racing Torque Thrust wheels elevate almost any classic, and they look especially clean wrapped in 245/60/15 front and 255/60/15 Cooper Cobra white-letter radials. Look around and you wont find a whole lot of these trucks that look this slick hanging around. Popularity of the 3100 is increasing, and builds like this are leading the way. Call today!
