1950 3100 Deluxe cab
I bought this vintage truck, a 1950 Chevy 3100 Deluxe Cab, in 1993 for $1,200. It had a 283 and a granny 4 speed in it. It ran and drove really good so I didn't mess with it. Over the next several years, I installed a 350 trans, Nova rear end, HEI distributor, restored the original gauges, added an OG radio and heater. I also have a Fulton visor that is not shown in the pics. I repainted the truck myself in 2006 I'd say it looks pretty decent. My goal with this truck is to maintain as original a look as possible, even though it has updated drive train. UPDATE (6-28-2021) truck now has a 350 engine and 700r4 trans, disc brakes, and power steering (still has original suspension). Currently I'm correcting details like painting the mirror arm and head black, painting the tailgate lettering, and trying to find an original seat to replace the incorrect one. Other future plans include painting the wheels black as well as the bed wood and strips. This truck and my 57 Chevy sedan are my daily drivers, heck the newest thing I own is a 64 Nova! That last pic is of my son Shane doing a burnout in the school parking lot! He made the mistake of posting the pic to his Instagram, needless to say he didn't get to drive the truck anymore LOL.
