Seller's Notes

This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup is one of those builds where you can see the attention to detail in every single component. Not merely assembled, but rather built with an eye towards making even the little stuff look right, it's gorgeous to look at and wonderful to drive. Combined with a great color and interior choice, it makes for a slick resto-mod hauler that can take home trophies or cruise cross-country equally well.

This truck goes way beyond simple hauler, and even back in the '50s, Chevy revolutionized the industry with the crazy idea that workmen wanted attractive vehicles, too. So, while a lot of them got worked right into the ground, this handsome 'Task Force' pickup received a no-holds-barred rejuvenation that includes a few skillfully shaved bits and a lot of hand work that made it extra smooth and super shiny. Fit and finish is great overall, and the high-impact Yellow paint was recently completed (only 1,499 miles on this build) and is perfect for the 1950s vibe. All the emblems, door handles, hinges, mirrors, and brightwork were shaved, and a super-shiny grille was fitted up front, and who can argue with how cool it looks? Smooth chrome bumpers fore and aft are the perfect endcaps to this truck's searing yellow curb appeal, and the chrome trim around the crystal-clear headlights and turn signals adds just enough flash, while out back custom 'rocket-style' taillights were stacked and frenched into the rear quarters for a very trick look. Out back, the bed was fully rebuilt with fresh wood, polished stainless rub rails, and a cool built-in battery tray – making everything so darn nice back there you'll think twice before you load up anything dirty from Home Depot . Add in those uber-cool CHEVROLET block letters on the tailgate and those fat tires stuffed under the stepside bed, and you have a truck that creates a stir everywhere it goes.

With the original truck sporting vinyl and rubber and steel interior materials, the makeover in this Second Series beauty gives it a much softer, friendlier demeanor. A reshaped and very comfortable bench seat has been wrapped in custom foam and smooth white leather upholstery, which uses a period pleated pattern to replicate a 1950s vibe and even includes a built-in arm rest for the driver. Durable black carpets look great and help control noise and heat and the two-tone steel door panels are properly finished to match the color scheme. The dashboard, even when it was stock, was striking in a pickup truck and has now been smoothed and refined, with the original gauge cluster replaced by a trick billet set-up stuffed with elegant Classic Instruments gauges. You'll also not custom tricks like those insanely cool A/C vents inside the dash that will blow ice-cold R134a treated air throughout the spacious cabin (as soon as the system is serviced), and the slick, leather-wrapped LeCarra steering wheel mounted atop a polished tilt column that also features modern stalks. A matching headliner was inserted above, and heavy-duty floormats protect the newer carpets below. As you can see, no detail was left to chance.

The engine powering this beast is a later-model 400 cubic inch V8, making plenty of horsepower and torque that give this 3100 a whole new dynamic out on the road. From the shaved and smoothed firewall to the fully finished inner fenders, the yellow engine bay was obviously built for show, and everything was either painted, polished, or plated before it was installed. Wiring and plumbing has been neatly hidden from view, a serpentine belt system runs the accessories, and there's a big aluminum radiator up front to keep things cool. The block itself was painted yellow to match, and it comes topped with a big Edelbrock 4-barrel and performance intake, sparks to life thank to an HEI ignition, and breathes easy through a set of long-tube headers that feed a paint of throaty chambered mufflers underneath. Backed by a TH350 3-speed autom
