Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

What if you could have a truck that looks like 1956 but drives like a muscle car? Well, heres the answer to your question, a spectacular 1956 Chevrolet 3100 pickup with a high-powered ZZ4 350 inside plus a cabin full of luxury options. Talk about having your cake and eating it too! Painted a brilliant semi-metallic green from DuPont called Pond Scum Green, this slick pickup represents the first of the pickups that were actually styled by designers rather than merely engineered. As a result, they carry a lot of automotive-inspired design cues, and if you see a little bit of Shoebox Chevy in the design, the coincidence is purely intentional. Of course, the fact that it was finished to todays standards certainly helps, and theres not a ripple, dent, pockmark, or dent anywhere on the beautiful surface of this truck. The paint is about a mile deep, and has been rubbed and buffed to a mirror-like shine, and while there are a few signs of having been driven, its still a show-stopper. Enhancing the polished look is a custom 1957 grille, shaved emblems, and a bunch of louvers punched into the tailgate. Behind that tailgate, youll find a beautifully finished oak bed with polished stainless strips that tie in with the bright chrome bumpers and taillights. And youll note this is the desirable big window cab, making it feel airy inside without spoiling the vintage look. Gorgeous tan leather is the dominant theme inside, with the original bench seat replaced by what appears to be a custom split bench that looks right at home in the cab. Custom door panels and plus carpets certainly help it feel far more luxurious than 1956. Fortunately, it retains a 50s sensibility but the modern materials will definitely attract more than their fair share of appreciative nods at shows. The dash uses a set of custom gauges that mimic the original while providing a bit more information, and A/C vents have been discreetly tucked underneath in their own special panel. A tilt wheel with a custom billet wheel adds to the 21st century feel, as well as the custom head unit in the original radios slot, with speakers scattered throughout the cab. Its just spectacular inside and you can see that cubic dollars were spent to make it look this good. Underneath that beautiful green sheetmetal, youll find a heavily fortified chassis. Up front theres a 350 cubic inch ZZ4 crate motor that packs quite a bit more power than the original 283. Theres plenty of flash thanks to the custom pinstriped air cleaner assembly, finned valve covers, and a few chrome bits. But its also fully operational thanks to an Edelbrock carb, Bow Tie intake manifold, and a big Walker radiator up front. Power rack-and-pinion steering and power front disc brakes came with the Southern Rods independent front suspension, which gives it agile handling, particularly for a pickup. A smooth-shifting automatic transmission clicks through the gears, feeding a GM rear end from a 2001 Chevy Blazer hanging on a 4-link with coil-over shocks. A Flowmaster dual exhaust system gives it just a little bit of rumble, but it doesnt intrude, making this truck an easy long-distance hauler. Color-matched steel wheels with cool inner and outer trim rings add a period-perfect look, as do the staggered 215/70/15 front and 225/70/15 rear BFGoodrich wide whitewall radials. This is a no-compromises truck built to very high standards, and youll be proud to call it your own. Call today!
