134771 / 1951 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup Truck
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/msb9ub3 With reliable small block power, a low maintenance automatic and luxuries like modern air conditioning, this Chevy was built with the driver in mind. And if you're tired of superficial classics that emphasize appearance over practicality, it's the real deal rod you've been looking for! Hailing from Yuba City, California, this super cool pickup recently received a roof-to-rocker makeover that's set off by a striking coat of Black and Ruby two-stage. Under that high quality pigment, an incredibly straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, with the exception of a thorough massage during their restoration, appear to have led a quiet, drama-free existence. Those massaged panels feature better than factory alignment and, when opened and closed, sound solid and function exceptionally well. And that functional body's combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggest many labor intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch finish work. Hoist this custom's hood and you'll find a mean, 350 cubic inch GM crate engine that's good for 8.5 to 1 compression, 260 horsepower and 350 lb./ft. of tire twisting torque. At that top of that jet black small block, a chrome air cleaner forces wind into a coated Edelbrock carburetor. At the base of that carburetor, a crisp aluminum intake hangs a modern HEI distributor between familiar chrome valve covers. At the base of those valve covers, Accel Hi-Temp Super Stock wires snake around cast and painted Exhaust manifolds. And in front of those manifolds, a polished pulley system spins a modern power steering pump between a chrome alternator, a Sanden AC compressor and a beefy radiator. The dressed 350's power flows from a rebuilt turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed to a sturdy Dynotech driveshaft and rebuilt Nova axle. That familiar drivetrain pushes a blasted and powdercoated chassis on a Helix 4-bar suspension, which sports fresh Ride Tech coil-overs. Tracking is provided by a Helix Mustang II front clip, which is fitted with adjustable coil-overs and power rack and pinion steering. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to drilled and slotted discs and power-assisted drums. And at the corners of the chassis, painted and polished steelies twist 215/60R16 Diamond Back Classic whitewalls around stainless trim rings and "CHEVROLET" branded hub caps. When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a stylish and comfortable cockpit that's sprinkled with modern amenities. Top dead center, a glossy dash hangs New Vintage USA Woodward Series gauges above hardware for Vintage Air climate control. In front of that dash, a traditional bench seat wears an attractive combination of cloth and vinyl hides. And in front of the driver, a polished Helix column spins a polished Grant wheel around old school foot pedals. This fully sorted Chevy is a wonderful classic to drive, enjoy and haul a couple of your coolest friends in. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information!
