With the start of the new year, our conversations are plagued with those happy and optimistic “new year, new me” conversations full of high energy and enthusiastic resolutions. Among the popular resolutions made by car fanatics are declarations to purchase “new” classic cars, the desire to sell cars from overgrown collections, to start or finish that restoration project, and create travel plans to attend an event or drive across the country.
Whatever it is, we’d like to think the Pick of the Day, a bright yellow 1950 Chevrolet 3100, would help keep you motivated as the year progresses.
The truck, listed on ClassicCars.com by a private seller in Scottsdale, Arizona, benefits from a “body off restoration” with some modifications along the way. The result, the seller says, is basically a healthy-running truck.
This Chevy truck is powered by a 350 cid Chevrolet engine mated to a 700R4 transmission with the gear shift mounted on the steering column. A majority of the engine and transmission parts are either chrome or have been polished, the seller notes, and the Edelbrock carburetor is new. The front end is from a second-generation Camaro, with a Camaro rear differential. The truck also is equipped with air suspension, power steering and front disk brakes.
The exterior has been extensively modified and features a 3.5-inch chopped roof, suicide doors with remote releases, frenched headlights, molded tail lamps, molded tailgate with wood bed, custom pin striping and Eagle Alloy’s five-spoke wheels.
The interior provides such creature comforts as air conditioning by Vintage Air, gauges by Classic Industries, an Ididit chrome tilt wheel steering column, AM/FM CD player with coaxial speakers, power windows and custom bucket seats, console and door panels.
Offered for $44,000, the listing notes the title is clear but doesn’t include mileage accumulated since the completion of the restoration.
