Gateway Classic Cars Houston is proud to offer this gorgeous 1957 Chevrolet 3100 pickup. For 1957, many visual changes were made: The former egg-crate grille was changed to a more open-mouthed design, with eight bars holding an open trapezoid in the center, and a pair of wind splits appeared on the hood. Dished steering wheel, safety door locks and strikers, and a more rigidly mounted rear axle (using threaded spring shackles instead of the center-draw-bolt type used previously) were among the other improvements. The V-8 models grew to 283 cubic inches, 160hp and 270 foot-pounds of torque. This 57 Chevy has been through a full frame off restoration that saw almost every part on the truck from bumper to bumper be replaced or restored. The front clip of the suspension on the car you will find a 1980 Firebird front clip and suspension system that gives the car a much better & safer ride. The rear suspension has also been upgraded and gives the truck a great ride. The exterior of the truck is in great condition and shows very well. The body is straight & true, the body panel gaps are even. The bumpers, trim & glass are also in great condition and really pull the look of the truck together sitting on those polished aluminum American racing wheels. The 57 features a new tailgate with chains, new driver & passenger doors on the truck, & new oak boards in the bed of the truck. This truck is powered by a 350 CID V8 that mates with a Turbo 350 transmission. Both components have been rebuilt with less than 1500 miles on them. The truck has also been treated to a new full wiring harness for the truck resolving any electrical issues. The truck features a new dual SS exhaust system that gives the truck a great sound. Other great features on the truck worth mentioning is the Vintage Air A/C system that blows cold, AM/FM with compact disc player, a new custom billet gauge set in the dash, a new chrome 1957 grille & the exterior trim has been re-chromed, a new aluminum radiator, new windshield wiper motor, new foil floor insulation, & and new carpet. The interior shows very well. It has custom front floor mats, a recovered seat, new headliner, front windshield and back glass, new seat belts, new carpet, new sound insulation, & more! To put it simply this truck has been brought back better than new. Don t miss your chance to own one of the most iconic trucks Chevrolet has ever produced. It is a unique look and specific to 1957.
