Over on AutoHunter, the premier online auction site driven by ClassicCars.com, you’ll find this 1957 Chevy 3100 pickup up for auction. The seller acquired the truck in 2010 and then completed a comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical restoration.
You might recognize this truck from when it was listed back in December 2020. It’s been re-listed due to a non-paying bidder, through no fault of the truck or the seller.
The Aztec Bronze 3100 truck received a complete body-off-frame restoration that was finished in 2018. During the restoration, the fuel tank was relocated to underneath the oak bed that was also fully restored using stainless-steel bolts and trim. Louvers were stamped into the hood and polished exhaust tips were placed before the rear wheels.
Both front and rear bumpers retain their original chrome plating from 1957 and is in good condition, according to the seller.
The interior is fitted with dual bucket seats sourced from a 2010 GMC Yukon and upholstered in ivory Italian leather with bronze stitching and custom headrest embroidery. The tilt column and steering wheel were sourced from a Corvette.
Other additions to the interior include a modern stereo and a Vintage Air system for heating and air conditioning.
Powering the car is the 400cid V8 engine sourced from a 1972 Chevrolet that’s factory rated at 300 horsepower. Performance upgrades include an HEI ignition, ceramic-coated mid-length headers, a mild cam and an Edelbrock Performer intake with 1906 carb.
A 700R4 4-speed automatic transmission with a floor-mounted Lokar shifter transfers power to the 10-bolt rear and is equipped with a 3.73 positraction differential.
The odometer reads 6,000 miles, which are the miles since the completion of the restoration.
The auction ends February 18th at 12:00 p.m. MST.
