By 1947, civilian vehicle production was back in full swing and light-duty trucks were no exception at GM’s Chevrolet and GMC divisions. While Dodge and Ford rolled out new designs for 1948, and Studebaker followed for 1949, General Motors beat them all to market with the May 1947 release of its new designs. Twinned with their GMC stablemates, the new Chevrolet “Advanced Design” light-duty truck models featured smooth styling, “Unisteel Battleship” construction, and improved visibility. Their significantly larger cabs were eight inches wider than before, with three inches more shoulder space and measured a foot longer. An unqualified success when new, the first all-new postwar Chevrolet pickups remain highly collectible, enjoyable and economical to own today, with smooth bodylines that continue to lend themselves extremely well to a variety of custom treatments.
This Chevrolet 3100 custom pickup was purchased in 2002 and then built from the ground up by Bobby Monical approximately nine years ago. The chassis, thought to be from 1951 is masterfully enhanced with Chevrolet’s most desirable “Five-Window” body style with a 1954 cab. Striking in its demanding black exterior paint finish, the Chevy’s smooth body is complemented by outstanding chrome and brightwork and recessed headlamps with chrome bezels. The cargo box received similar treatment, with beautifully finished wooden flooring and stainless steel strips, plus a modern billet-type fuel filler cap. Riding on upgraded underpinnings including a modern four-link rear suspension setup, the Chevy is motivated by a 350 cubic-inch small-block V-8 engine equipped with a Street & Performance TPI fuel injection system, “block hugger” headers, a serpentine accessory drive system, and a host of polished aluminum, chrome, and braided steel goodies, with cool running provided by an aluminum radiator. A modern automatic transmission, dual circuit power brakes, and power steering deliver enjoyable and easy cruising.
This Chevy’s interior is fully customized and highly inviting with Vintage Air, two-tone, leather-clad bucket seats incorporating power adjustment, and handsome blue carpeting. The door panels are particularly impressive in terms of their patterning, execution, and elliptical speaker enclosures. Other interior highlights include custom pedals, a Lokar floor shifter, and a vintage-style Le Carra steering wheel on a tilt column, plus modern instruments and a digital stereo system. Featuring an outstanding stance with a nice rake, this great and highly drivable custom Chevy pickup rolls on Cragar alloy wheels mounting BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires and stands ready for continued enjoyment.
