1951 Chevrolet Other Pickups
A classic two-tone panel truck instantly gets you thinking about all sorts of fun ways to enjoy a useful classic. And this 1951 Chevrolet 3100 Panel Delivery is upgraded with a fuel-injected small block, an overdrive transmission, and a stunning power A/C interior just to make sure it lives up to the idea of the awesome all-around cruiser you really want.
Chevy's Advanced Design are in-demand icons with their bright Art Deco grilles, alligator hood, two-piece windshield, and rounded style. So it gets even better when your custom build starts with this lineage but on a panel delivery that's rarer, more interesting, and more versatile. This one likes to respect this heritage while also showing off its unique style. For example, the minty green and white two-tone is a great 1950s color combo. But the green in the lower half also has a modern metallic element that loves to radiate extra bright when the sunshine hits the sheet metal. So it can really show off the curves of the fenders and overall how well the panels fit. And while the bumpers and grille shine beautifully, the piece of brightwork you're likely to take note of the most are the polished Ridler wheels. They show off the lowered suspension and give you a nice 18/20-inch front/rear sporty stance.
Delivery vehicles were developed for utility, but this custom build makes sure to add in plenty of luxury, too. It starts up front with a full covering of ultra-leather. You have it on expected places, like the well-bolstered modern bucket seats. But with the door panels, custom center console, headliner, and even the floor all coordinating in this saddle tan. And with less than 2,700 miles on the build, it has the fresh look and feel of something special. You've got all the best features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner, and cup holders that glow green to match the dash. It's built to be a good driver with an upgraded steering wheel, tilt column, and crisp Classic Instrument gauges. It's an overall presentation that is both always ready to show off and comfortable for hitting the road. The same goes for the rear. The clean cargo area follows the exterior's green and white theme, and the tan upholstery even returns at the rear. We love that the wood floors look vintage and can still be used for work. After all, those rear barn doors open wide to still swallow plenty of cargo (or your favorite tailgating supplies.)
There's more cool green to go with the tidy setup of the engine bay. While this is a very vintage vehicle, you're looking at fuel-injected Chevy Vortec V8 power. This 6.0-liter motor is known for being hardy, powerful, and versatile. And they took the time to make it look like this powerhouse has been here since day one. It's even got all the right pieces you want, like a serpentine belt system and a Champion aluminum radiator w/electric fan. When you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see an updated frame and an S-10 independent front suspension. There's also power steering, power brakes, front discs, and grippy ZR-rated tires. And the four-speed automatic transmission is an overdrive unit that makes it easy to enjoy this delivery vehicle on trips near or far.
