1955 Chevy/Mercedes 3100 One of a Kind Stepside Pickup Truck Incredible
           



I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there is only one of these amazing trucks on the planet.  This is a fully modified 1955 Chevy Stepside Pickup Truck with Mercedes drivetrain, interior etc.  It is an incredible display of automotive creativity and skill.  VIN number: H2550016717 and mileage is only 1700 +/- since the truck was built. Please read on.

Have you ever wanted the look of a classic truck, but wished it drove more like a brand new Mercedes and was just as reliable? Normally, classic car enthusiasts would say that is not possible and you could only have one or the other… I'm here to tell you it is possible and you can have the best of both worlds TODAY! This incredible custom truck has the nostalgic styling from a 1955 Chevy 3100 truck, and the unbeatable engineering of Mercedes Benz. Unbelievably, It all comes together in perfect harmony. Don't believe me? See for yourself.

This one of a kind was built by Metalworks Classics, and they didn't skimp on any details. From a custom made one-off hood, to the Mercedes interior and dash that fit so flawlessly snug, it looks like Mercedes themselves created it just for this truck. This is a truck that certainly turns all heads anywhere it goes.

This is how it came to be according to the owner:

"I had a '55 Chevy pickup and a 2001 Mercedes SUV parts car. I was trying to figure out how to use the Mercedes parts in my Chevy pickup. My wife suggested that I cut the sheetmetal off of the Mercedes and just set the pickup on it. I reminded her that building trucks is kind of a guy thing. She went back to the house and I got to thinking about what she had said. Damn, that is a good idea. Now I have a 55 Chevy pickup with a MB 3.2 liter engine, 4 wheel drive, PS, PB, PW, Air conditioning, cruise, air bags, heated seats, Bose sound system, and Navigation"


When Mercedes Benz conceived the M-Series of 4-wheel drive luxury SUVs, they began with a clean sheet of paper and designed a vehicle combining superb off-road capabilities with a high level of luxury. As daring as the German manufacturer can be, they could never have imagined what the folks at Metalworks Classics of Eugene, Oregon had in mind for the M320, the 3.2L V-6 version of the M-Series, the entire workings of which they have grafted onto – and into – this fully customized 1955 Chevrolet 3100 stepside pickup. From any standpoint, this is the ultimate hybridization, marrying vastly different technological eras and divergent automotive cultures into one of the most unusual combinations of old and new – to say nothing of foreign and domestic – we have ever seen in a Resto Mod.

The truck uses the full M320's complete platform. Fully independent suspension with double wishbones at all four corners, torsion bars at the front and coil springs in the rear works in conjunction with full 4-wheel drive and an anti-lock braking system managing 4-wheel disc brakes. The Mercedes-Benz all-aluminum 3.2L V-6 offers strong and flexible power delivery through a 5-speed automatic transmission, its throaty growl amplified by Magnaflow exhaust. The Chevy's cab and pickup bed incorporate considerable custom work. The front fenders and hood were joined at the seams and a new hood opening defined, the cargo bed now features dual storage compartments, and the interior has been replaced with the full Mercedes-Benz installation, including the M320's superb power seats. The finish is a combination of Black over Silver lacquer bound by carbon fiber and airbrushed smoke graphics that are perfectly complemented by chromed M-B large diameter alloy wheels wearing Toyo Proxes4 tires. A serendipitous final touch: the hand-lettered sign on the tailgate, "Wie Ein Stein," the German translation of the signature Chevy truck slogan: "Like a Rock."

HIGHLIGHTS:

• Mercedes-Benz SUV full platform ML320
• Aluminum SOHC 3.2L engine
• 5-speed automatic transmission
• All wheel drive
• Anti-lock 4-wheel disc brakes
• Full Mercedes-Benz interior
• Wrap around rear window
• Stepside bed
• Complete custom painted Carbon fiber and smoke graphics


Don't miss your chance to own a one of a kind 1955 pickup truck. German engineering with classic American design… the ultimate hybridization built "Wie Ein Stein."

Please feel free to ask questions prior to bidding.  I will make sure to get every questions answered in a timely basis.  However, don't hesitate too much on this car.  If you hesitate, you will lose.

This truck is being offered as a consignment vehicle from a dealer.  Please add $65 to the total price for docs. fees.

Each time someone bids higher than your last bid, eBay will automatically increment your bid by the minimum bid amount until it reaches your maximum. Don't get stuck loosing a good deal! 

Testimonials - Bid with Confidence

Read what a buyer has to say about the quality of my service after he purchased a great 1988 Lotus Esprit S4 Turbo "AAA+++, This is the way Ebay is supposed to work.  Everybody is happy!!! Thanks."  

Read what a buyer has to say about the quality of my service after he purchased a beautiful 1970 Mercedes 280SL. "My acquisition of a vehicle with Ron conducting the transaction went without a single problem. The description of the car was complete, informative and quite accurate. There were no surprises. All my questions and concerns were promptly addressed. His attention to details continued beyond the actual sale until the car was safely in my garage. As a new buyer I had only a positive experience and recommend him to the eBay community without reservation."

Read what another buyer had to say when he received his 1958 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham. "Car better than expected, Ron is prompt, friendly and honest, Highly Recommend!!"

Read what another person who purchased an '88 Mercedes 560SL had to say "Thanks, Ron, for your prompt, courteous and honest service.  I've been looking for the right '88-'89 MB 560SL for the past three years - you found it for me!  I couldn't be more pleased with the responsive, highly professional manner in which you handled my special needs.  I'll buy from you again".
