The mid 1950’s was a period of great change in America. People began to forgo the practicalities of life in exchange for style and comfort. With changes in fashion and architecture becoming more elegant, automakers began a variety of changes to their vehicles. From these changes arose a new era in trucks. This dawning period saw trucks as multifaceted vehicles, instead of just a means of completing work. At the forefront of the fashion/comfort push, Chevrolet birthed the 3100 pickup, giving trend setters what they desired. This 1956 Chevy 3100 pickup was king of its time. Displaying car-like features and lines, these trucks set the standard. Exhibiting wrap around windshields, carefully gauged fenders, headlight visors, and an egg crate grill, Chevy epitomized style. Sixty years later, this truck represents that period to the finest detail. This trucks exterior is nothing short of breathtaking. Strutting a recent black cherry finish and upgraded foils such as, American Racing Wheels, a stunning wood slat bed, and spotless chrome, it will leave no head unturned. While the outside betokens style, the inside shouts comfort. With upgrades like a new grey vinyl bench seat, new carpet headliner, aftermarket tilt steering column, power steering, air conditioning, new gauge cluster, tachometer, and a Clarion AM/FM/CD with built in speakers, this truck is Sunday drive ready. From a mechanical standpoint this striking truck delivers again. Boasting a 350 engine, Hedman Headers, aluminum radiator, duel exhaust, and a 700 R4 Transmission, this floor shift automatic is completely sound. It is host to a Mustang II front axle, and completed with a Ford 9” rear end connected to 4:11 gears. P235/70/R15 BF Goodrich tires and front disk brakes, assure traction and stopping capabilities. This pristine truck showing 1,000 miles is a true depiction of the mid 50’s. These trucks were invented to display splendor, and invoke envy. So why not be the one invoking envy at the next cruise in?
