1951 Chevy 3100

Up for auction is one bad ass 51 Chevy pickup!  If you are in the market for one of these, I don’t think you will find a better example. There aren’t many out there as solid and original as this one!  This truck has everything going for it and lacks nothing.  The right look, stance, color, drive train upgrades, and more make this investment grade pickup a smart purchase.

The classic truck market is hot, and this body style truck is in demand! Prices are steadily increasing and they are making great investments.  You can’t go wrong with this one; it’s one of the best looking 47-54s on the market.  Styles change with cars and trucks as quickly as they do with women’s shoes.  This truck is timeless, and will always be as cool as it is today.  There are many I see fetching big bucks that are cool right now, but once the styles change, so will their demand.  This particular truck has the right look, and is never going to be worth any less than it is today.

Most people have a tough time mixing the right amount of modern changes, hot rod style, and still retaining the right amount originality.  The truck pulls it off perfectly!  It has all the upgrades that make it a joy to drive, and still has a vintage look and feel.

This isn’t your average restored truck that has had all the rust repaired, new aftermarket sheet metal, and loaded with aftermarket parts. Most of these trucks were worked, abused, and then parked for many years.  This truck was a survivor, and started as one of the best examples you could ever find. This is an extremely original truck.  It retains its original sheet metal; even the running boards are original!  It’s had 1 exterior re-spray many years ago to its original color.  It came to me with its original bumpers, grill, emblems, seat cover ect.  All of which were exceptionally nice for their age.  The interior has the original paint on the dash, jambs, and throughout the cab!  The original gauges, knobs and switches are still in the truck as well.

This truck is EXTREMLY dry and solid!  I have never seen another un-cut and un-patched 47-54 this solid before.  The cab corners are original and look fantastic.  The underside of the truck hasn’t had any patchwork or panel replacement and has never been painted or undercoated.  This truck spent its life in TX and it shows!  When you start with a truck like this, they turn out that much better in the end.  There’s nothing like an original metal survivor, once there cut and have been apart, they just don’t go back together the same.

This truck runs, drives, and rides extremely well.  Its quiet, tight, fast and smooth!   It starts easy, idles smooth, shifts prefect, stops on a dime, and does not feel like your driving a 60+ year old truck.  It has enough power to light up the tires, but still mild enough to have a nice smooth idle and is totally drivable.  It has quite exhaust on it and sounds great!

The truck has a Mustang II front end with independent suspension and rack and pinion steering.  It has Power disc brakes with a hidden master cylinder and booster under the truck.  It has  dropped spindles and springs.  The rear end is a later model GM.  It has new lowered leaf springs in back.  This truck rides awesome!  You would never guess a truck that sits this low could ride as good as it does.

The motor is a 350 crate engine that runs very nice!  It has a fresh Holley carb, Edelbrock intake, shorty headers, HEI distributor, ect.  It doesn’t miss, tick, knock or smoke.  This truck is very dialed in. Its fast, smooth, and responsive.  It has the pedal response and smoothness of fuel injection.  This one just runs better than any carbed small block I have ever owned.  It has a Lokar shifter, throttle cable, and detent cable. The tranny is a 350 turbo that shifts perfectly! The original radiator was re-cored.

The interior of the truck looks awesome!  The seat and door panels are new and original style.  It has a late model column with a 40 ford deluxe steering wheel.  All the paint on the inside is original and has just enough patina to give the inside an awesome look!  The gauges are original and all work!  It has a working fuel gauge, temp gauge, speedometer, oil pressure guage, and volts.  Even the factory E brake is in the tuck and working! This truck came to me with a totally original interior. It even had its original seat cover, which was in great shape for its age, but I wanted to freshen it up so I opted for new.

The truck has vintage air and it blows ice cold!  

The wheels and tires are brand new.  The whitewalls are radials for a smooth ride.   The wheels are wider in the rear and the tire is taller and fatter in the rear.  New factory style center caps were added along with new trim rings.

The exterior of the truck looks incredible, the pics don't do it justice!  As I stated before, its had one repaint to its original color.  The paint was done years ago and has held up extremely well.  Paint and bodywork that were done years ago and still looks this nice says a lot about the truck. I would much rather buy something that had been done some time ago and still look fresh, than a fresh one that looks good now but start showing age after a few years. There is little to no body filler in this truck.  You can tell when you close the doors that it’s a good one! It had some rock chips and small areas that were professionally touched up.   There is no blistering, bubbling, or cracking anywhere on the paint. It is very straight down the sides.  All the gaps are nice and everything lines up.

A new grill, bumpers, door handles, mirrors, emblems, tail lights, ect were installed.  All the original chrome was in nice shape for its age, I just wanted new.  I thought the truck was too nice not to have perfect chrome.

All the glass and rubber was replaced when the truck was painted.  The Oak in the bed was just professionally refinished and look as slick as the outside of the truck. 

 This truck is a blast to cruise!  Its drives very easy.  It just as smooth at 100 mph as it is at 60 mph.  It will cruise 85 mph all day with the air on and stays nice and cool.  I have had it on long hauls and it does great!  It was driven here from TX without a hiccup.  I wouldn’t be scared to get in it tomorrow bump the key and head across the country.  Everything on the truck works.  It needs nothing! I was setting it up to be my daily driver, and no expense was spared. 

A ton of money has just spent getting this truck to look, drive,  perform how it does today. If you consider what an original truck in condition like this (if you could find one) would bring, and then factor in  all that has been done to this truck, its alot of bang for your buck.  This is not a $20k truck. They are out there for that kind of money but they are not like this!

I’m regretting listing this already as I am typing and am going to regret selling the truck even more.  I know I will never own another like it, but it’s time to move on.  I need the room and unfortunately this sweatheart of a truck is one of the few I have that are 100% done and ready to go.   I have owned many 47-53 pickups and have owned hundreds of classic cars and trucks and know a good one when I see one! 

Overall this is an outstanding truck that is going to make someone very happy!  It would make a great daily driver, weekend tripper, or garage piece, you really can’t go wrong.  Why buy a new truck that will depreciate, when you can own and enjoy one like this that will appreciate, for around the same money!

I have been selling on Ebay for 14 years. And have sold many classic cars and trucks with 100% positive feedback.   I am very picky with my cars and know.  I know what I am looking at and know how to accurately describe them.  I have many happy buyers all around the world, and can provide references if needed.

I reserve the right to end this listing at any time.  If you’re a serious buyer, call me and make an offer.  I can be reached at 314-393-0565. Please read the entire listing before calling.  Serious inquires only.
