A classic pickup like this 1957 Chevrolet 3100 is always going to be appealing. But when you see upgrades like bright paint and big block power, then you know you really need to take a closer look.
The maroon paint sets this truck apart nicely. It has a deeper tone than red, and there\'s a hint of metallic element to really make it pop in the sunshine. And speaking of shine, there has been a solid and recent investment in the chrome bumpers, door handles, badges, and grille to really give this classic Chevy added distinction. These Task Force trucks have a sporty appearance with dual power bulges in the hood and a wraparound windshield that give the cab a forward-leaning look. So those polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels do a terrific job of not only adding to the shine, but also this truck\'s overall intimidating presence. And this one earns its powerful look with what\'s in the engine bay (more on that in a moment.)
The interior has been tastefully redone in gray. There is some added comfort from upgrades like the full carpeting, custom bow tie headliner, tweed cloth on the seat, fresh weather stripping, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner nicely integrated into the classic dash. But what you\'re likely to really notice are the hints of performance that were added, too. You get a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, Hurst floor shifter, a full AutoMeter auxiliary readout package under the dash, and a large column-mounted Autogage tach.
The engine bay is filled with big block power. This 454 cubic-inch V8 is ready to show off with the bold block, shining Chevrolet valve covers, matching air topper, and an overall tidy look. But what you\'ll really love are the performance enhancements, like the Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, and shorty headers feeding the rumbling dual exhaust. And you\'ll even spot worthwhile supporting components, like the Mallory ignition, electric choke, and an aluminum radiator. So that makes for a motor that fires up readily, runs strong, and delivers serious power. The TH400 three-speed transmission is a stout unit that can handle the extra power and also have smooth automatic cruising. Plus, wide BF Goodrich T/As are the choice for muscle cars, so they work well in this muscle truck.
This pickup has the extra fair for power and the big block heart to back it all up. That makes for a cool classic you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
