This beautiful 1950 Chevrolet 3100 embodies the best of both worlds…the classic look of one of the hottest classic trucks on the market with an updated drivetrain with plenty of power, a beautiful stance, that runs and drives as good as it looks. Frame-off restoration a little over a year ago by a gentleman in Oklahoma who knows what he is doing! This ’50 looks like it was just restored last week. Just a little over 1200 miles put on it since it was completed so it is very fresh and ready to hit the show circuit if desired and even better, ready to be driven and enjoyed by the next lucky owner! I purchased it from a gentleman in Texas who had bought it for his wife to drive. When he bought it the truck had about 400 miles on it and he drove it to his home in Texas from Oklahoma with no issues and the truck now has a little over 1200 miles on it. buying a classic for the wife does not always work out as planned so he decided to let the next lucky owner enjoy it…maybe you!!? It is difficult to show just how nice this truck is in pictures but I can honestly say that the fit and finish on this one is top notch. There are plenty of over the top builds out there that are too nice to drive and then there are plenty of average builds out there as well. This 1950 really fills a a sweet spot for someone who demands quality but intends on driving their classic truck and wants it to be set up right and have all the right equipment that will make it fun and easy to drive and provide some of the modern comfort features like ice cold A/C, modern stereo, etc. I will do my best to provide enough large images, a video of the truck starting up and running, and an honest description to help you decide if this is the one you have been searching for. I am confident the next lucky owner will be absolutely thrilled when this truck arrives to their driveway! As with all my classics, I do have this truck advertised on several other websites in addition to my own. So, if you do not want another car guy or gal to scoop this truck up before you do I suggest you call me to discuss how we can get this truck on a transporter on its way to your garage. I welcome overseas buyers and my wife and I are also transport brokers in addition to being a Classic Car dealer so we can get you a great rate on Enclosed transport if needed. Sit back and enjoy!!
The body and paint on this ’50 are extremely high quality and is best described as show quality!!! This is an all steel body panel truck that obviously lived a good life and was then professionally caressed during the frame-off restoration resulting in about as straight a body as I think you will find on a Chevrolet 3100 classic truck. The doors on this truck open and shut with the solid feel and sound that you rarely find on these old trucks. The custom gray paint color is really a stunning color and the paint quality is show quality. This color is really hard to describe as it takes on different tones when it is in direct sunlight, shade, or under the bright lights of my showroom. It is a medium gray with a slight hint of green. It has a great vintage look!! As you will see in the pics below we had the body professionally accented with some beautiful vintage pin-stripe work done locally by Conways Customs. Gorgeous wood bed! I would love to call the truck absolutely flawless but I prefer to point out the minor flaws I have seen that most buyers might not notice. There is a very small chip on the corner of the edge of the hood on the drivers side that we will touch up and there are some extremely tiny rock chips below the headlights that are barely noticeable. Otherwise, the paint and body really are close to flawless! This truck has a fantastic stance and has been slightly lowered but not enough to cause any issues for ordinary driving. This is truly a show quality truck that you can also jump in and drive and enjoy. All of the Chrome looks awesome. Glass appears to all have been replaced and is nicely tinted. Bumpers are new and were tucked in about 4″ for a cleaner look. Simply a beautiful, near flawless body on this Classic ’50…take a look at the walk around photo tour of the body:
Complimenting the gorgeous Gray exterior is a great vintage looking black interior and a sweet looking Poplar light colored wood bed. As you will see in the pics below the front seats sit side by side for a split bench seat look but what is great is that they can be adjusted individually. They feel like leather and they are super comfortable! The original fuel tank was moved from behind the seats to under the bed and these seats are set up nicely so that even the taller drivers will be very comfortable. Door panels and headliner to match and new carpeting all look great. The dash itself looks great and has the vintage look with original style gauges that are updated to include readouts for oil pressure, temperature, etc. and everything works. Turn signal indicator lights in dash with update turn signal lever on the column. Very comfortable grip on the updated steering wheel. Ice cold Vintage A/C and heat neatly mounted in the dash with vents tucked under the dash for driver and passenger. Nice aftermarket am/fm/cd stereo with ipod/usb adaptor mounted under dash with speakers behind the seats and in the kick panels. There is also a charging port mounted under the dash to charge your cell phone. Cool rear view mirror and all new knobs and door handles with bear claw door latches. The dash was also treated to a few nice pinstripe touches as well. Overall, the interior is as show ready as the body. The bed area is gorgeous as well with a fantastic light poplar wood that has been weather treated. Check it out:
Under the hood is a great, completely rebuilt 350 V8 with just a little over 1200 miles on it since the restoration. It was built to be a cruiser and horsepower is estimated at 275-300hp. Edelbrock aluminum intake and 4bbl Carburetor with electric choke provide the fuel. Stock manifolds breathe out the dual exhaust that exits right behind the rear differential and has a soft tone as it was again built as a cruiser. Turbo 350 automatic transmission shifts nice and smooth. This truck runs great and handles beautifully. I was told it is a Mustang II front end with power rack and pinion steering. This truck stops with ease thanks to the power front disc brake set up with power booster neatly mounted along the frame. Rear end is a GM 10 bolt rear with highway friendly gears estimated to be 3.08 or 3.50 gears great for highway driving. The firewall was smoothed out for a really clean look under the hood. Ice cold a/c and heat when needed! Aluminum radiator with electric fan that has been nicely chromed out for a great appearance when you pop the hood at the shows. The undercarriage is also super clean and nicely detailed. Fuel tank was neatly mounted under the bed. All of the leaf springs, shocks, and suspension components are new. Truck has been slightly lowered with a great stance. Brand new set of American Racing Torque Thrust Polished wheels wrapped in brand new set of BF Goodrich G-force tires. The fronts are 17×7 225/45/17 and rears are 17×8’s with 255/45/17 tires. I have attached a short video following the pics below so you can hear this truck start up and running. This truck is ready to show and go!!!!
