This 1954 Chevy 3100 was a complete frame off restoration that has been stored in a climate controlled garage and is in excellent condition. The truck has been finished in gorgeous red paint and is ready to show, or enjoy around town. It is in immaculate showroom condition and just has test miles on it at the moment. The restoration included all mechanical, cosmetic and electrical components.
During the restoration, every metal surface on the truck was stripped down to the bare metal via soda blasting. The frame has been totally refinished in gloss paint and upon reassembly, all of the panels were expertly fit to the body. The truck has great lines and nice gaps around the doors. The paint is a base clear and has a nice wet sanded and buffed out finish. All of the chrome work is brand new and all of the trim and rubber is new as well. Most of the body hardware on the truck is now stainless. The undercarriage is very highly detailed and is in excellent condition. All of the glass on the truck is new as of the restoration.
The interior has a great timeless look and features all of the correct items and a few upgrades as well. All of the soft interior parts are new as of the restoration including the seats, headliner, door panels and the floor mats. The truck is equipped with the factory heater which works correctly. The door handles and window cranks are brand new as are the other chrome finished interior items.
The 3100 is powered by the 235 ci Thriftmaster and is connected to the 3-speed transmission and correct rear end. They have all been recently rebuilt as of the restoration and the motor purrs like a kitten. Just crank her over and you are ready to cruise. The transmission shifts smoothly and the rear end is quiet as a mouse. All suspension and brake components were restored during the restoration as well. The truck drives out very nicely and is not that far off from how it would have driven when it was brand new.
For the Chevy enthusiast looking for an awesome truck, this 3100 is the bee’s knees.
