Here\'s a vintage truck that\'s an absolute lock to turn heads. This 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Big Window (3) wears a high impact exterior color you won\'t want to look away from and has been outfitted with a healthy, more modern engine to anchor a high functioning drivetrain. Inside and out this classic is in top form, with an array of distinctively cool custom touches and an outstanding running condition that equips it to impress passers-by just as soon as you bring it home.
The striking color scheme draped over this classic\'s exterior, featuring a distinctive plum purple color accented by a white roof, makes it a head turner in the best possible way. It\'s a stand-out combo to begin with and a closer inspection will show that it\'s been applied with plenty of skill - this is without a doubt a high quality paint job that\'s come through the years in very strong fashion and a comprehensive detailing would make it flat out stellar. The array of chrome trim and bumpers both fore and aft appear to be nearly new and really pop against such a magnetic backdrop. This Chevy has been outfitted with a stance that\'s just awesome - lowered, with a nice aggressive incline, with just the right amount of wheel offset figured in to keep the rubber from scraping in everyday driving conditions. Clean cabin glass surrounded by fresh rubber seals adds even more to the precisely finished overall appearance.
There\'s an effective blend of new and old components on display inside the doors, starting with a pair of late model, plushly padded bucket seats that fit nicely and look great in this setting. They offer a level of comfort and support well out of reach of the original seating and tie in nicely to the door panels they\'re bracketed by. A tilt column sits in place of the original, so you\'ll be able to find that perfect driving position, and there\'s an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo on board to tend to your audio needs. Just a little farther forward, the instrument panel still sports its vintage factory style, with an array of functional gauges lodged in an impressively clear, heart-shaped display. In back, the bed area is in top form - its floor features well-prepped wooden slats and stainless steel reinforcements that are surrounded by blemish-free walls. An air conditioning system has been installed and its compressor is blowing with full force, but it will likely need a Freon charge to bring it back up to speed.
Ample power comes via the 350 cubic inch V8 impeccably dressed inside a well-organized engine bay, surrounded by fresh-looking components and new hoses and wires. Armed with an upgraded 4 barrel carb and an Edelbrock Performer EPS intake manifold, this 350 is one very eager powerplant that\'s running in top form, sending a nice, deep note out of the short tube headers leading to its dual exhaust as it teams with a smooth shifting 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission. An electronic ignition and Taylor ignition wires have also been added to improve all-weather performance and maximize available spark. From all indications, this is a drivetrain that\'s been well cared for and equips this vintage truck with a road-readiness that\'s truly hard to come by in this niche. Power steering further ups the driving experience this well-configured truck offers as it cruises on a set of 15 black American Torq thrust wheels.
With its outstanding curb appeal and upgraded, strong running drivetrain, this 1955 Chevrolet 3100 Big Window (3) is a sterling example of restomodding done right. Call today!
