For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6wfgkod This 1950 'Advance Design' Chevrolet 3100 features a great combination of classic virtues and drivability and it's guaranteed to hold its appeal for as long as you own it. The beneficiary of a two and a half year frame off restoration; every aspect of this award winning truck has been meticulously restored to both preserve the beauty of the design and make the truck more roadworthy. Up front, the familiar chrome grille looks excellent against this trucks bright red exterior. New wide set headlights are complemented by non-original, round amber lights mounted above the pristine front bumper for a look that appears factory correct. The high profile hood features a classic Chevrolet emblem that's in excellent condition up front and great looking "Chevrolet 3100" emblems on each side. The two piece windshield is divided by chrome and sits above a gold pinstripe which circles the whole cab. Behind the cab, a light oak bed is held together with new stainless skid strips and matching light oak bed rails with vintage replica Frontier Gas signs provide a great feeling of 50s service station nostalgia. Two gold pinstripes flow from the light oak bed rails down each of the bed posts to disguise one of the only hard edges on the truck. Small flashes of new chrome such as a driver's side mirror, door handles, windshield wipers and cool contoured passenger side lock cover give the red exterior a tailored look. On the tailgate, an inverse red on black Chevrolet script is very well done and matches the Chevrolet script on the hub caps. A chrome rear bumper complements chrome tailgate chains and LED brake lights with chrome loomed wiring provide a finished look. Correct large domed center caps with matching trim rings are mounted to 16 inch body color wheels that wear Firestone 60.5 wide white wall tires. Equipped with a modified Thriftmaster 216 inline six cylinder engine, the bay has a vintage hot rod look. Under hood detailing begins with a fresh coat of satin black paint on the inner fenders that contrasts to the familiar red on the firewall. The Thriftmaster motor is painted bright blue and features a two Rochester single barrel carburetors sitting atop a split manifold. The radiator and engine accessories are painted the same satin black as the engine compartment and blue spark plug wires with red boots are complemented by the finned Offenhauser valve cover. Two chrome air cleaners continue the vintage hot rod theme. All belts and hoses look great and ready for the road and the truck even comes equipped with a correct gloss black horn. Crawling underneath this 1950 3100 reveals a clean frame with straight sheet metal that's coated in chassis black. A chrome oil pan serves as the main focal point at the bottom of the blue inline six. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all for corners of this chassis and a correct 3-speed transmission handles shifting duty. Power is put to the ground via a driver friendly Ford 9 inch rear end and a solid axle. A single muffler dual Exhaust system runs the whole length of the truck and meets stainless tips that hang under the curved rear bumper. Inside, custom red and black seamless door panels include correct chrome window and door handles. A custom red and black bench seat has "Chevrolet" prominently stitched into the center of the back pad. A custom red headliner creates a more comfortable, cockpit like feeling. The dash features traditional stainless trim and a speedometer, a divided gauge with temperature, battery, fuel level and oil pressure, a glove box and a heater/defroster. On the correct black steering wheel a silver horn button mimics the stainless trim on the dash and connects the wheel to a body color steering column complete with a chrome turn signal lever and body color gear selector. Whether you're racking up more trophies at shows or just spending a Saturday night out on the town, this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 is guaranteed to be the center of attention wherever you go.

1951 Chevy 3100 5 Window
Chevrolet 3100 Completely new, the '47 Chevy received a new design with a new Unisteel cab styling. The grill featured five horizontal bars topped by a hood ornament with a blue bow tie and Chevrolet lettering. The interior was upgraded with wider seats and a redesigned instrument panel. The ¾ ton trucks, as well as the 1 ton trucks, received the same new styling but had a longer wheelbase and bed. In 1950, the 216.5 cubic-inch six was tweaked to put out 92 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and 176 ft-lbs of torque at 1,500 rpm. These trucks continued into 1955 and remained on sale until March 25, 1955, when all-new early V-8 pickup trucks were announced by Chevrolet. It should come as no surprise that Chevrolet pickups were number one in sales during every year of the Advance Design Era, and this 1951 3100-series Chevy pickup is one of the most desirable models from that era.
