This 1949 Chevrolet 3100 Pickup Truck is beautifully restored, mild custom truck and is ready for some serious summer cruising. Introduced to dealers in January 1949, little changed from the previous year on the 1949 Chevrolet truck line, which was completely redesigned in 1948. Perhaps the most notable change was the new “Advanced Design” cab, that was said to be roomier, safer, more comfortable and more convenient in Chevy’s 1949 advertising materials. The 1949 Chevrolet trucks also outsold the previous year models by nearly 10%. Likely due to the popularity of the Advance Design Chevy trucks, they are commonly recipients of restomod restorations which make them even more enjoyable to drive. This particular 1949 Chevrolet 3100 was purchased new in Durand, Illinois and comes to us having been the beneficiary of a very tasteful restomod-type restoration. Under the hood on this ’49 Chevy Pickup is an upgraded 235 Cu. In. Inline 6 Cylinder engine paired with a Holley “Quick Fuel” Single 4 Barrel Carburetor. The 235 Inline 6 is mated to a 5 speed manual transmission which makes driving this classic Chevrolet truck an absolute joy. The engine is also equipped with several performance upgrades including an Offenhauser head and valve cover, a PerTronix Flame-Thrower ignition coil, aluminum radiator, and MSD distributor. The truck was also upgraded to a more reliable 12 volt electrical system with a new wiring harness. This ’49 Chevy 3100 also features upgraded front disc brakes to that you have plenty of stopping power. With a positraction rear end, you’ll be sure that you’ll keep the rubber to the pavement on this Chevy truck. The chrome and brightwork around the exterior of this pickup truck is in nice shape as well. The exterior has been beautifully refinished in a two-tone paint scheme consisting of White and Jet Black. Riding on P205/55R15 radial tires in the front and P265/50R15 radials in the rear, this truck has a nice stance and even better ride. The steel box, wooden slats, and wood bed with chrome hold-down strips are in fantastic shape as well. The interior on this ’49 Chevy is superb. The two-tone White/Black theme is carried throughout the interior. The front bench seat has been beautifully reupholstered in white and black vinyl. The dash door panels, steering wheel, and headliner are all in wonderful condition and tastefully done in the white/black color scheme as well. The dash is equipped with upgraded Omega Kustom Instrumentation including a 140 MPH speedometer, temperature gauge, volt gauge, oil pressure gauge, and fuel gauge. An Equus 8,000 RPM tachometer is mounted to the steering column as well. A retro-style AM/FM radio was added as well so that you can listen to all of your tunes while cruising.
