Classic Car Overview

Who doesnt like a Chevy Task Force era truck? Theyve got a ton of personality, theyre super popular at car shows, and they look like theyre raring to go even when theyre parked. This pretty 1956 Chevrolet 3100 has all of the charm and style with plenty of power and some nice upgrades...sounds good to us! The handsome burgundy paint comes from a late-model color chart and you have to admit it looks great here. The paint job was done a few years ago and its holding up great with a nice gloss that seems about right for a pickup, not perfect but it shines up nicely. The 3100 was all-new in 1955, ostensibly to showcase the new small block V8, so they didnt mess with a good thing in 56, and that was the right choice. Youll note the grille has been chrome plated in a nod to tradition, and the rest of the trim is in excellent shape, although the hood has been cleaned up a bit. Gaps are good all around and the stepside bed wears a set of chrome bed rails that give it a dressed-up look. Out back youll find a smooth tailgate, custom LED taillights, and a trick roll pan with exhaust pipe cutouts. The front bumper is similar to those found on passenger cars to further tie the two together in consumers minds. The bed is beautifully finished oak and it looks great, with a vintage look that has character. Inside youll sit on a late-model front seat setup that includes power buckets and a functional center console. The dash was painted to match the exterior, as were the doors and the rest of the interior, although the handsome gray inserts on the doors soften things up a bit. Theres matching gray carpet on the floor and a late-model steering wheel on the original column to help you get comfortable, A/C has been neatly installed under the dash, it still uses stock gauges in a beautiful chevron-shaped pod (again, a nod to the passenger car line), and it has power windows, too! An AM/FM/cassette head unit has been installed in the center of the dash although that is probably due for an upgrade as well. And with that giant rear window, it sure is bright and airy inside! Pop the hood and check out the smooth 283 cubic inch small block V8 inside. Its pretty mild but offers useful power that allows you to still use this truck as a truck. It also looks pretty much the way youd expect when you open the hood of a truck like this: freshened but not radical. You could get a small block motor in 1956, but it certainly didnt run or look this good. Theres an Edelbrock carburetor up top, a set of finned valve covers, and a chrome alternator makes plenty of electricity. Original rams horn exhaust manifolds feed a dual exhaust system with performance mufflers, so it sounds racy enough, but the front suspension remains a solid axle on leaf springs so it doesnt lose its vintage truck feel. Power routes back through a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission and on to the original rear end. 15-inch aluminum wheels hold a set of 225/75/15 General tires, so its got a sturdy look thats ready to work or play.
