For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a unique, one of a kind 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup. It's hard to find an area of sheet metal that hasn't been reworked. The top has been chopped, the bed was shortened, the hood has been pancacked and the body has also been channeled in order for the frame to sit higher in the chassis. When the top was cut, the windows were cut as well for proper fitment by using water jet cutting. A forward tilting hood is a unique take and it works beautifully. The door hinges have been relocated in order to switch them over to suicide door operation. Electric door poppers are in place of the original door handles and the mirrors have been removed for a clean and shaved appearance. The tailgate is welded shut and has flames tamped into the sheet metal The bed has an interesting look to it thanks to the wheel wells that have been enlarged to accommodate the gigantic wheel and tire combo. The rears are 285/50R20 and the fronts are 255/60R17. The bed itself has been airbrushed to resemble a wood bed. The fuel filler for the aluminum fuel cell is accessed by a flip up door in the center of the bed and the shape of the bed floor has been modified in order to fit the channeled chassis, primarily the rear axles. This smooth body is supported by an adjustable air suspension that is controlled by two switches mounted in the custom center console. Ride height can be independently adjusted for the front and rear. The rear suspension also consist of an adjustable four-link set up and a Mustang II for the front end. The Mustang II includes tubular upper and lower control arms along with rack and pinion steering. Slowing down is a breeze with four wheel disc brakes. Four wheel disc are a good thing to have with a power plant such as this one. Under the hood is a 454 cubic inch big block that's backed up by a TH-400. three speed automatic. Out back and sending the power to the rear wheels is a 12 bolt rear end housing 4.11 gears.
Inside is just as well built and thought out as the rest of the build. The seats are leather with Ostrich leather inserts as are the door panels and headliner. The floor is also leather! Dakota Digital gauges keep you well informed. The custom made center console houses the air suspension controls and the Lokar shifter. The center console stretches back past the bucket seats and up towards the rear window. The headliner also houses the stereo that can be controlled by remote. The rest of the controls are hidden under the dash to help retain the clean and uncluttered appearance.
No expense was spared for this one off build. If you want a one of a kind classic truck that doesn't have gawdy color combination or flames everywhere, look no further.
