This 1954 Chevrolet 3100 5-Window is a cool patina pickup, and the lowered stance tells you there's more here than just a workman attitude. Plus, the small block power under the hood, four-wheel disc brakes, and leather interior are what prove that this has been upgraded to deliver a total package pickup.
This patina was crafted to age this truck, but the matte blue/red/black certainly has a full authentic style. It also helps that this worn-in style has plenty more character, like the .....
custom roof rack, weathered lumber on the bed floor, and honest style to the 1954-specific grille. But even with all this workman appeal, they are also the right hints at the true cruiser nature. After all, those modern 20-inch polished wheels and the lowered stance hint at the updated heart beneath the skin.
The interior gives you clean and comfortable upgrades. It starts with a larger model bench seat with nice leather, a comfy feel, and a wide fold-down center armrest. This doesn't try to get too fancy with its presentation, but you get valuable upgrades like cup holders, thick floor mats over the carpeting, and modern firewall insulation. And we love how the five-window setup lets in more light. The driving experience is upgraded with a cool classic Impala steering wheel, a tilt column, and a handy tach under the dash.
Your first look under the hood shows more of this worn-in honesty on the inner fender walls. But then you start to notice the V8 in the middle. It has a polished air grabber, and finned valve covers to look like a nice street machine motor. And this 283 cubic-inch V8 has been nicely upgraded with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. Plus, there are nice supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator. This was built to be a cruiser, and the best evidence of that is how this 1950 pickup now rides on a more modern Chevy S10 frame. And there are also other worthwhile updates like the three-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel power disc brakes.
We like how this one is a terrific total package, and at the same time, the sky's the limit for creativity once you start to work on a creation like this. Will you unlock extra power from the small block? Add sporty components to the upgraded frame. Maybe you'll want to create a speed shop logo for the doors. So this Chevy is a fun truck to drive today and get to plan even more distinction for tomorrow. Call now!
