This beautiful American classic is going for well under $30k.
Some cars are so iconic, they stand for more than just transportation. This 1953 Chevrolet 3100 is just such a vehicle. A staggering amount of artwork portraying America’s love affair with the automobile in the 1950s features trucks like this, and for good reason. Responsible for helping to drive the economic surge the US experienced after the close of World War II, it was beloved by the nation. This particular example is in absolutely spectacular shape, plus it’s for sale, so you can make it yours.
That Victory Red paint has a luscious quality to it that combines with the fresh chrome and flawless wood for a picture-perfect presentation. Inspect every inch of that steel body and you’ll find even more reason to admire the truck. The smallest details, like the badges, are flawless. Even the wheels are free of curb rash, pitting, and other wear.
This Chevy truck is about more than just good looks. A 216ci inline-six engine runs nice and smooth. You get to control gear changes with precision, thanks to the 3-speed manual. Both are believed to be original to this pickup, which is phenomenal. Thanks to excellent care and a mechanical refurbishing only 500 miles in the past, the powertrain should be good to keep rolling for some time.
Thankfully, the previous owner didn’t do anything too crazy with the cab, keeping it mostly original. The black factory dash features OE gauges and controls, plus the steering wheel. White vinyl seats are fresh, making for one of the big highlights for this truck.
Showing off a design which greatly departed from pre-war designs, GM’s Advanced Design trucks were instrumental for business, farmers, and others who needed proven workhorses. There’s really no wonder such fond memories are associated with vehicles like this Chevy 3100. That historical significance combined with the outstanding restoration work done on this vehicle makes it an excellent acquisition for your collection.
