Chevrolet introduced the Advance-Design in 1947 as medium-duty truck series. It was their first major redesign since the conclusion of WWII and was built to be a stronger, studier, and sleeker version of the existing AK series. Ever since its release, the Advance-Design trucks sold like hotcakes, making Chevrolet the number one truck seller in the United States from 1947 up until 1955. Today, the Advance-Design is an iconic figure in the classic pickup community, and this 3100 trim is a perfect example of that. If you’re looking for a classic Chevy pickup around Utah, this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 that’s been restored, and has just 300 miles on it might be the ideal candidate. It’s got some purposeful upgrades on it as well.
This 1950 Chevrolet 3100 received its metallic blue exterior paint in 2012 and has undergone a complete body and paint restoration. At a glance. The Chevy looks like it just rolled out of the showroom, with its wide chrome front grille and bumpers in seemingly perfect condition. The redesign of this 3100 was based on a resto-mod build and stands tall on a set of color matching rims that are wrapped in Radial LT Cooper tires. The interior of this Chevy pickup has been equally well preserved. The predominant color is gray that contrasts well with the blue body panels that you glimpse from inside as well, adorning some of the interior metal surfaces. Much like the exterior, the interior of this 3100 contains chrome trim, especially on the dash and door panels that add to its classic look. The interior also offers bench-style seating and a single-spoke steering while that sits in front of a series of gauges. They’ve also thrown in a cassette stereo system for an extra retro feel. All electrical bits are said to function without error.
Under the hood of this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 sits a 350ci V8 engine from a 1970s Chevy pickup. Both the motor and transmission were swapped during the restoration, giving this one an automatic gearbox for a more comfortable driving experience, and as a four-wheel-drive conversion for added capability. As a bonus, the Chevy also has power steering. A suspension lift and power disc brakes on all four wheels complete the package.
