Plenty of custom attitude, well-placed upgrades, and good V8 power all come together on this 1949 Chevrolet 3100 5 Window pickup. So look over the details on a truck that takes a classic icon and makes it fun for modern cruising.
We like the attitude this truck puts forward. The gray paint is a more modern hue, and so it sets the tone for a pickup that has been updated. It doesn't get fancy with the finish or chrome. It's there to look bright and complete without ever making you worry .....
about every little stone in the road. You'd expect to pay plenty more to get a 3100 five-window with a full street machine attitude. And so, this one would need extra attention in the paint and panels to get to the next level. While we like the true cruiser attitude, if you need an Autorama kind of presentation, the price just means this is the first time it can be within your reach, and now you can take the time to make it even more personal. And no matter how you choose to enjoy this Chevy, you can already see it has all the best details around. The shaved door handles, diamond plate flush rear pan, a matching metal truck bed, large dual exhaust tips, and integrated blue dot tail lights are terrific details. Plus, you just know you'll love pulling up everywhere with that cool stance that comes from the lowered suspension and 18-inch Foose black alloys.
The interior mixes a vintage presentation with the right upgrades. So you get the classic dash and factory gauges. The seat is still a bench style, but it was never done in this comfy cloth. Plus, there are amenities like power windows and an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. Other upgrades prove this truck was made to be driven. You have the wood and chrome sports steering wheel, a tilt steering column, a tall Lokar shifter, SW gauges, and a dash-mounted tach. And because this is a desirable five-window cab, it lets in more light so you can see the complete package better.
Since this pickup has been upgraded for better cruising inside and out, it's also great to see they gave it more power under the hood. They brought this into Chevy's small block era with a 327 cubic-inch V8. While there are polished components to make this look nice, your favorite upgrades will be all about the performance. It has a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and headers. The V8 fires up eagerly as it makes a sweet tune from the dual exhaust. And because this one wants to hit the road, you'll appreciate upgrades like the independent front end, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, front discs, and rack & pinion power steering.
This is a five-window pickup with the right custom style for terrific cruising today, and there's a ton of potential for tomorrow. Call now!
