Regular readers already know that a lot of handsome Advance Design pickups run through our showroom, but very, very few of them are as nice as this gorgeous 1950 Chevrolet 3100 5-Window. With incredible red paint, an aggressive stance, a powerful 383 Stroker V8, and a lot of tricks up its sleeve, this is the one you've been waiting to own. And with only 18 miles on the build, this slick hauler is practically brand new.
We've said it many times before: if you're going to paint it bright red, you need to invest the extra time to make it worth looking at, because you're going to get A LOT of attention. Well, the guys who built this truck did exactly that, spending nights and weekends in the body shop sanding the sheetmetal. Then they sprayed several coats of some of the most brilliant red paint you've ever seen, and spent another few late nights wet sanding and buffing it to bring up a brilliant shine. So, you know it's pretty darn nice, maybe not quite a "trailer-queen", but wow, it's really very nice. The other thing it is, is slick. No gaudy graphics, no obnoxious flames, no major distractions from the clean shape that looks flat-out awesome. There were some clever alterations from stock however, including the deletion and smoothing of all the trim/chrome sans the horizontal grille and front bumper, frenched-in headlights, and a custom smoothed tailgate and roll-pan set-up in the rear. In fact, the entire bed was made over, beautifully finished and painted inside and protected by a hard paint-matched cover that's power actuated, and just below the roll pan features a custom trailer hitch, license plate holder, and LED taillights. The glass was all replaced as well, headed-up by the custom V-eed windshield up front. There's just nothing on this truck that wasn't tweaked to a very high level before being bolted back on.
It's also very comfortable inside, thanks to a nicely finished and elegantly simple custom interior. The original bench has been covered with tan leather and red inserts, and with matching door panels, it's easy to forget this is an old pickup truck. Tan carpet below and a custom headliner above tie it together in a rather handsome way, and the painted tilt steering column is fitted with a custom 3-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel that upgrades the '50s theme inside. Elegant Classic Instruments gauges were installed ahead of the driver in a symmetrical pattern, which gives them a very trick look and the billet shifter on the column has an old-school vibe that works extremely well. A neatly installed Vintage A/C system looks very sharp in the painted dash, while up above there was a custom console fitted into the headliner that houses switches for the power windows and a modern AM/FM/AUX head unit that manages the tunes.
As you'd expect, this Chevy still carries Chevy power, via a freshly installed 383 cubic inch Stroker V8 in this case. With just 18 test and tune miles on the rebuilt engine, it runs superbly and looks fantastic. It's very functional, with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, HEI distributor, polished intake manifold, and a lot of polished parts to make it glitter. The rest of the engine bay is beautifully finished too, offering smoothed and painted inner fenders and firewall, providing a great backdrop for the bright bits on the engine. The undercarriage has been finished for show as well, where you'll find painted components and new parts throughout, including a Mustang II-style setup up front with power rack-and-pinion steering and power 4-wheel disc brakes with slotted rotors, and fresh shocks, springs, and bushings everywhere you look. A sturdy 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears inside round out the fresh powertrain, leaving you with no worries about reliability and transforming it into an easy high-speed cruiser. The soundtrack comes via ceramic-coated headers that feed into a stainless Edelbrock dual exhaust system, and my goodness does it sound fantastic at full bore. Finally, Torque Thrust style polished wheels put a modern spin on the truck and wear staggered 225/55/16 front and 275/60/17 rear blackwall radials that help set the raked stance.
So yes, we sell a lot of these. But not a lot of them measure up to the standard set by this beauty. So, if you're looking for a great one, it's just arrived. Call now!
