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 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 pickup received a full rejuvenation that includes a few skillfully shaved bits and a lot of hand work to make it smooth and shiny. Fit and finish are quite good overall, and the electric blue paint was done a few years ago and is still in good shape with only minor signs of use. A chrome grille was fitted up front, and who can argue with how cool it looks? The windows were given a light tint to accentuate the street rod stance, and the bed was fully rebuilt with fresh wood, polished stainless rub rails, and a stainless steel fuel tank up front, getting it safely out of the cab. Add in smooth 1-piece bumpers, cool side trim on the fenders, and bright white CHEVROLET block letters on the tailgate, 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 gives it a much softer, friendlier demeanor. A reshaped and very comfortable bench seat has been wrapped in custom foam and smooth black leather upholstery, which uses a period pleated pattern to replicate a 1950s vibe. Custom black carpets look great and help control noise and heat and the door panels are properly finished with body-colored paint and cool oak sills that warm things up a bit. The dashboard, even when it was stock, was striking in a pickup truck and has now been refined, with the original gauge cluster replaced by a trick Dakota Digital setup that totally makes the interior. You'll also not custom tricks like cup holders built into the center arm rest, a Jensen 7-inch flip-out TV with Infinity speakers in the kick panels, and a wood-rimmed wheel that's about the same color as the door sills. A/C is very cleverly installed under the dash, tucking the vents out of sight so they don't attract a lot of attention. As you can see, no detail was left to chance.The engine is a powerful 350 cubic inch V8, now making somewhere north of 400 horsepower. Additions include a polished Edelbrock intake manifold and matching 4-barrel carburetor, long-tube headers, and, of course, the finned Edelbrock valve covers and air cleaner. There's a big aluminum radiator up front to keep things cool and the accessories are tucked in close to the block and spun by a serpentine belt setup. Backed by a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission and a 12-bolt rear with 3.55 gears inside, it's a superlative highway cruiser that's still punchy around town. Up front there's a giant sway bar and power disc brakes, plus power steering and a custom dual exhaust system with throaty mufflers sounds suitably performance-oriented. The stance is just about perfect, with a lot of the credit going to the polished Torque Thrust wheels and 235/70/15 Goodyear radials.A gorgeous truck from long-term ownership, this beautifully built and nicely documented (we have a ton of receipts) Chevy delivers in every sense of the word.
