The beneficiary of a recent restoration, this super cool pickup reflects a striking combination of Candy Apple and Metallic Silver 2-stage. Beneath that brilliant pigment, a straight body hangs solid panels that pair good function with good alignment. At the front of that fuselage, a heavy chrome grille rides between a fresh chrome bumper, clean halogen headlights and a monochromatic header crest. Behind that crest, a chrome-trimmed hood leads the eye to sealed glass that’s seated behind bright frames and thin windshield wipers. At the sides of those wipers, a dressed up spare combines with factory door handles, a traditional fuel filler and a small mirror to create a simple, attractive profile. At the center of that profile, a spectacular wood bed is dressed in stainless skid strips. And at the back of that bed, a 2-tone tailgate reflects sleeved chains, polished tail lamps and a second chrome bumper.


Hoist this Chevy’s domed hood and you’ll find a 235 cubic inch, date-correct 6-cylinder that wears a correct “F” assembly stamp. The foundation for that mill is a correct 3835911 block that’s been dressed in red paint and bolted to a correct 3835913 head. A “Chevrolet” stamped valve cover wears a matching coat of pigment under a bright breather. The red continues to a traditional points distributor, which sequences spark through 7mm Belden Premium wires. Fuel gets atomized by a single Rochester carburetor, which hides color-keyed componentry under a trick air cleaner. Beneath that carb, a rust-free exhaust manifold frames a color-keyed intake. At the side of those tubes, a modern alternator spins a small belt, which is looped around a red fan and red water pump. In front of that pump, a painted radiator keeps an eye on temperature. And everything, from the truck’s pliable hoses and tagged Delco-Remy starter to its fresh fuel lines and Metallic Silver engine bay, appears to be 100% road-ready.



Crawling under this vivid bowtie reveals a body-matched chassis that, for the most part, appears weather-free. Power meets the pavement through a color-keyed Muncie 3-speed, which is tied to a color-keyed, 10-bolt axle. Correct leaf springs and big drum brakes occupy all four corners of the chassis, mixing rugged road prowess with firm and solid stops. An aluminized, single-pipe exhaust system, which is wired to a large muffler, runs the entire length of the truck. And everything rolls on reversed chrome wheels, which twist 225/60R15 Falken Ziex between mirrored smoothie hubcaps and color-keyed wheel wells.


Just as colorful as its body, this 3100’s showy interior is guaranteed to generate smiles. At the front of the cockpit, a Candy Apple dash hangs classy telemetry beside a Retrosound Apache head unit. In front of that dash, a 2-tone bench looks wide enough to accommodate three. At the bottom of that seat, a simple floor mat frames color-keyed foot pedals. Opposite that mat, a silver headliner founds a polished mirror between red sun visors. At the sides of the passengers, Candy Apple doors hang Metallic Silver frames above 2-tone panels, color-keyed armrests and correct chrome handles. And in front of the driver, a wood-rimmed steering wheel spins satin spokes and a blue bowtie centerpiece around a factory shifter.
