Not only does this 1947 Chevrolet 3100 restomod look like nothing you’ve ever seen before, but with its fuel-injected power and fully independent suspension, it’s more Corvette than pickup. So you’re looking at a highly-detailed and absolutely memorable build for thousands less than it would cost you to do it on your own.
It’s alright to say “Wow!” when you see the body, because we did, too. This sheetmetal is an expert blend of the classic ’47 steel and late-model Silverado. After all, just the way the vintage cab is seamlessly integrated with the modern bed tells you someone spent a ton of time and money getting this build right. The same goes for the way the familiar newer Silverado front end is blended with the iconic alligator hood. And the level of gloss and shine on the modern two-tone metallic paint really highlights the level of precision in the customization. And the slick clearcoat goes so nicely with the details like the shaved door handles, custom rocker panels, and modern Corvette alloys.
When you pop the remote door openers, the rear-hinged doors are there to instantly tell people the budget had room for a cool interior, too. Tan tweed on the seats offers plenty of comfort, and they are part of a larger coordinated package with the doors, carpeting, and paneling. Plus the exterior Raspberry Metallic returns on the dash for a great total uniform package. More than just look great, this one gives you all the right features, including cold R134a air conditioning and a full set of Dolphin gauges. And because this is the kind of cool custom that will make you want to roll all the windows down, it not only has power side windows, but the back window powers down, too!
Even the hood on this build is designed to attract attention. It power tilts forward the entire front end so that it gives you (and everyone else) a clear view of the upgraded powerhouse. The fuel-injected LT1 motor snugly fits into the custom frame. And this is not only the C4 Corvette’s V8, but also you’ll notice the A-arms should look familiar, too. And if that gets your enthusiast heart pumping, then you’ll really fall in love/lust with the undercarriage photos. That reveals the C4’s full independent suspension that was expertly integrated onto this truck. Plus, it comes with a four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of modern performance tires.
