Description

"The 1948-1953 Chevrolet Series 3100 ½ ton pick-ups benefited from a redesign that took Chevrolet trucks into a new era of comfort, convenience and style. Chevrolets restyled ‘Advance Design’ trucks were introduced in 1947, well ahead of its first new post-war cars and little changed in appearance through 1953. The basic intent was to provide more room and comfort for occupants. These pick-ups had a new bench seat accommodating three people instead of the old separate seats and for the first time the seat was adjustable for longer leg room. The cab, described as ‘Unisteel Battleship’ construction, was larger in every direction. New extra-wide doors swung open on concealed hinges and extended down to cover the sills. The window area grew considerably via a wider windscreen, side windows and backlight, a vast improvement all-round compared to the previous models.
This stunning Chevrolet 3100 presents in tremendous condition, having benefitted from an earlier nut and bolt restoration. The paintwork of cream over Candy Red is in good order as is the interior of the truck. Benefitting from a five-speed gearchange with quick shift, we are informed that this handsome piece of Americana is fun to drive. This truck also has a practical side and was at one point used by a local builder as his everyday conveyance. The phrase ‘they don’t build them like they use to’ certainly applies to this ½ ton pick-up. We are informed that the speedometer is currently not working Presented to auction with a V5C registration document. "
