Low-Mileage Restomod Is An Unusual Patina Show Truck

The only thing this truck needs is a new owner who will appreciate it!

Back in the mid 1950s, pickups started to shift from dedicated workhorses, to becoming more customer focused vehicles. It was the beginning of the pickup truck boom, this 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has only 750 miles on the highly custom build - this is no run-of-the-mill vehicle either. The details of this truck make it a very attractive find from Crown.

Powering the solid body 3100 Chevy truck is a LY6 6.0L LS, built to impress. A Stage 1 BTR with dual valve springs, pushrods, DOD delete, and Holley intake. Backing the beefy engine is a 6L80E, six-speed automatic transmission. The drivetrain feeds into a 10-bolt 3.73 Posi Center Section. An incredible exhaust note comes a Dual Black Widow 3-inch exhaust and mufflers.

The truck rides on RideTech coilovers at the front and rear, and gets stopping power from 4-wheel disc brakes. It rolls on a set of 20x9-inch Detroit Steel Artillery Style wheels, which are wrapped in Nitto 255/35 tires.  

Exterior wise, this classic pickup is an obvious homage to the patina culture. It also has Trique Manufacturing door latches, new glass and weatherstripping, and LED headlights. The bed is highly custom with BedWood Bed Kit with Stainless Bed Strips. Likewise, the interior is always highly custom.

It rides on an updated suspension that employs tubular upper and lower control arms, chrome shocks, and gets its braking power from the upgraded front disc brakes. Other highlights are the power steering rack, billet tilt column, and Vision Legend Series chrome wheels.

If you’re looking for a turn-key, one-of-a-kind vintage pickup truck, this is one of the finest ones currently up for grabs.
