Nostalgia is all about providing a vintage experience that's sometimes even better than it really was back in the day. This restored 1957 Chevrolet 3100 delivers on that exact idea where there have been big investments to deliver a period-correct feeling in a package that's nicer than anything Chevy ever provided when new.
They spent time, effort, and plenty of money getting the sheetmetal looking great. That way when they applied the factory-correct Indian Turquoise paint, the light .....
would roll evenly across the panels. The sunlight really does love this truck. It's finished in a deep clearcoat, so it can shine like proper nostalgia. And you know the invested in the brightwork on the bumpers, grille, and even details like the wheel covers to keep them looking mirror-like. This is truly a truck of distinction, that's why you have everything from stylish black wood covering the bed floor, to the side-mounted spare wheel. And yes, this has ultra-desirable wraparound rear glass on the cab.
Inside is more investment in keeping it looking like a time machine. Glossy gray paint on the doors and dash give this a bright attitude, and the black floor covering and updated bench are clean and rugged - just like a proper pickup should be. All the right details are in place, including the working horn and AM radio. Even the heater works, so you can stay warm while getting to the car show at dawn. And if you're truly nostalgic, we know you're going to love driving this one. There's nothing quite like the feeling of the classically grippy large steering wheel. And this gives you a great view of the factory gauge package and the road ahead.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. Glossy black fender walls, an oil bath air cleaner, and bright orange paint on Chevy's 283 cubic-inch small block. It has a great look of originality, right down to the glass bottle washer fluid. In fact, the engine block is a true year-correct '57 unit! More than just history, this is also meant for drivers. That's why they upgraded to a 12-volt electrical system. The motor fires up nicely and has the smooth feeling of a solid investment. You can also tell they invested in the suspension to give you a fine feeling on the road. The column-shifted three-speed manual transmission is geared for truck duty while also giving you proper control over the motor.
It would take years to restore this truck to such a superior level, and this fresh restoration has less than 5,500 miles on it. So you get to skip the hard work and just get right to the fun. Isn't nostalgia great. Call today!!!
