What if you could have a truck that looks like 1957 but drives like 2015? Well, here's the answer to your question, a spectacular 1957 Chevy 3100 pickup with a modern suspension and drivetrain underneath, as well as a cabin full of luxury options. Talk about having your cake and eating it too! Painted handsome PPG Gunmetal Gray, Cameo pickups like this one were some of the first trucks that were actually styled by designers rather than merely engineered. As a result, they carry a lot of automotive-inspired design cues, and if you see a little bit of Shoebox Chevy in the design, the coincidence is purely intentional. Of course, the fact that this one was finished to show standards certainly helps, and there's not a ripple, dent, pockmark, or dent anywhere on the beautiful surface of this truck. The paint is about a mile deep, and has been rubbed and buffed to a mirror-like shine. Enhancing the upscale look is a beautifully finished oak bed with polished stainless strips that tie in with the bright chrome bumpers and brilliantly restored grille. None of the original sheetmetal was modified, although a few emblems were shaved, and that should tell you something about how right the original design really was. It also features a smooth tailgate with Bowtie emblem and a custom rear roll pan, finishing a very clean look. Black is the dominant theme inside, with the original bench seat upholstered in black vinyl with gray cloth inserts and offering all-day comfort. Plain steel door panels were covered in matching black paint, a look that extends to the dash as well. The instrument panel uses a set of Auto MEter gauges in the original V-shaped housing, and A/C vents have been cleanly fitted to the custom center console. That same console also houses the HVAC controls, a pair of cup holders, as well as the AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash with speakers scattered throughout the cab. A tilt steering column houses a beefy 3-spoke steering wheel that is exactly appropriate for the truck's personality. Underneath that beautiful gunmetal gray sheetmetal, you'll find a very clean-looking chassis. Up front there's a small block Chevy 350 cubic inch V8 motor that looks ready to enjoy. Instead of flash, you get function and reliability, along with easy serviceability, plus plenty of horsepower thanks to a Holley 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, aluminum heads, a big "mother thumper" camshaft, and ceramic-coated long-tube headers. Power steering and power disc brakes, compliments of a Camaro subframe swap, make this truck a pleasure to drive. A 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission clicks through the gears, feeding a Ford 8.8 rear hanging on a set of stout leaf springs that mean this truck can still work for a living. There's a disc brake at each corner and a 2.5-inch dual exhaust system gives it just a little bit of rumble, but it doesn't intrude, making this truck an easy long-distance hauler. A custom fuel cell under the bed is just about the only part that doesn't look OEM, and polished Torque Thrust wheels wear Toyo Proxes rubber. This is a no-compromises truck built to very high standards, and you'll be proud to call it your own. Call today!
