This 3100 received a frame-off restoration by S&J Kustoms in Owensboro, Kentucky that was completed in 2018. The exterior is finished in metallic dark blue that’s complemented by chrome bumpers, an embossed tailgate, and the cargo area has replacement wood panels and stainless steel hardware. A 19-gallon fuel tank was installed underneath the bed behind the rear axle. It rides on a set of chrome Cragar Quick Trick wheels. 

“The cab is fitted with a black vinyl bench seat, matched to the door panels, dash, carpeting, and floor mats,” the listing states. “Amenities include a Lokar shifter and a tilt-adjustable steering column. A Vintage Air A/C and heat setup has been installed but needs service, according to the seller. The Custom Autosound stereo with under-seat speakers is also in need of adjustment.”

Under the hood is a 454ci V8 big-block engine assembled by Lykins Motorsports and has been dyno-tested at 520 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque. The engine features a FiTech fuel injection system, an MSD ignition coil and ignition system, a custom exhaust system with ceramic-coated headers, an aluminum radiator with auxiliary fans, and Ron Francis wiring.

The engine is paired with a floor-shifted 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and a Ford 9-inch limited-slip rear end with 3.70:1 gearing.

The sale includes a clear Kentucky title in the seller’s name, and an engine build sheet.

This Chevrolet 3100’s auction ends on July 13, 2022, at 12:15 p.m. (PDT).
