Gassers are a cool unique era in custom classics that command attention simply because they tower over the other cars at the shows, literally. Especially when you start with a 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup. So look over all the details of this powerful V8 growler, and you\'ll see a classic with true personality.
This one has a very cool outlaw style, think of the movie American Graffiti and you\'ll get the idea. There\'s semi-gloss paint on a tough truck body give this the look of a true straight-line brawler. Even the headlights are blacked-out (the true lights were nicely integrated below the grille.) The whole package nicely represents the gasser culture. After all, these were all about shedding weight and transferring force to the rear wheels. So it correctly has the front bumper removed and a high solid axle installed (and don\'t you just love how the world can now get a peek at those wrapped headers with the exhaust cutouts?!) But even as a race-ready gasser, this classic Chevy also has flair. Whitewall tires, American racing wheels, and vacuum-activated license plate holder give it a street-wise style. And we know everyone will love the bright bed with full diamond plate floor.
Just like the outside whitewall tires, the white bench inside makes for some cool distinction in the sea of darkness. And this one even has power windows. But really, this truck was built for speed. You get an instant tingle of performance the moment you slip behind the grippy black and chrome steering wheel. There\'s a lock-out shifter, a full pack of auxiliary gauges, and a large AutoMeter Autogage tach w/shift light mounted prominently on the dash. So this one is ready to run.
Under the hood there\'s plenty more darkness, and even some polished components for flair. But what you really want to know about is all the power within. The consignor states this is a Cadillac V8 with the massive 500 cubic-inch displacement. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and the headers let this exhale with power. You\'ve already seen how great that last feature looks through the wheel wells, but what you might not notice is that the full dual exhaust exits beneath the truck. This gives the glasspacks plenty of time to create a monstrous roar. Or you can just open the cutout covers for the ultimate experience. Making sure that all this power gets to the ground properly is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic that feeds a 12-bolt rear end. And Firestone Dragster cheater slicks in the rear keep the rubber on the road.
Distinct, powerful, and ferocious, this is the cool gasser truck with a tough-as-nails attitude. And it\'s all offered at quite an obtainable price. Call now!
