Eastern Shore Classic Cars is excited to represent this truly classic 1954 Chevy 3100 Pickup. The 54 brought new styling to the Chevy Pickup line as it departed from a style that had been in existed since 1947. This new style was only available for two years, which makes this classic all the more collectable. The 54 featured a distinctively large triple bar grill with a horizontal bar dividing them in the middle. The parking lights were now incorporated into the grill for a more “modern touch” for its time. The inner bars were painted in a contrasting color giving the grill greater depth. The cargo box was changed adding higher walls rather than the traditional sloping design. The spare tire was mounted on the outside. New for 54 as well, was the one piece slightly curved windshield. Mechanically, the 235.5-cid six was an upgraded engine, with higher compression, insert bearings, and high-pressure lubrication, (it had been introduced on Powerglide-equipped passenger cars in 1953). This truck has a 3-on-the-tree manual transmission. This was also the last year for running boards as they would be moved inside in the later 55 models. The 1954 and early 1955 design are a unique, little-seen truck, marking the short period between the first postwar redesign of 1947 and the colorful, trucks of late 1955 and beyond. The owner states that this is an older restoration. As such, there is some minor bubbling of the paint here and there as evidenced in the photos. There is no appreciable rust to be found. They have used the truck on occasion rather than having it sit in the barn wasting away. It has been featured in local parades and local TV commercials. It starts right up and is ready to drive. If you are looking for a period correct pickup that will require minimal work to return to pristine condition, look no further. The vehicle is stored in southern VA and is offered at a very reasonable $26,000.00. Please contact Hank at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 201-317-9277.
