The 1948-1953 Chevrolet Series 3100 half-ton pickups are General Motors first truck production after the World War II.
These trucks benefited from a redesign that took Chevy trucks into a new era of comfort, convenience, and style and were labeled “Advance-Design”.
Chevy’s restyled “Advance-Design” trucks were introduced in 1947, well ahead of its first new postwar cars, and little changed in appearance through 1953. The basic intent was to provide more room and comfort for occupants.
This classic truck, in particular, had a fresh coat of Baby Blue custom paint on its exterior.
The rear end is 10 bolts posi unit taken from Trans Am and the front end comes from a late mustang with dropped spindles.
The truck was lowered to give it a hot rod looks.
On the interior level, it was customized with split bucket seats inspired from the famous Lamborghini Murcielago made from genuine buffalo leather and died with orange color.
The bed has its share of modification too; it was made with red oak Wainscot wood with a glossy finish.
The truck’s mill is a 400 cubic inch V8 Buick engine (6.6 Liter) with Flowmaster mufflers backed by a TH400 transmission producing an estimated 320 hp.
