The 1948-1953 Chevrolet Series 3100 ½ ton pick-ups benefited from a redesign that took Chevrolet trucks into a new era of comfort, convenience and style. Chevrolets restyled ‘Advance Design’ trucks were introduced in 1947, well ahead of its first new post-war cars and little changed in appearance through 1953. The basic intent was to provide more room and comfort for occupants. These pick-ups had a new bench seat accommodating three people instead of the old separate seats and for the first time the seat was adjustable for longer leg room. The cab, described as ‘Unisteel Battleship’ construction, was larger in every direction. New extra-wide doors swung open on concealed hinges and extended down to cover the sills. The window area grew considerably via a wider windscreen, side windows and backlight, a vast improvement all-round compared to the previous models.
This Chevrolet truck is owned by a very knowledgeable and fastidious vendor. The red and white coachwork is in unmarked condition and the interior shows little signs of wear. The payload area is unmarked and under the bonnet is equally impressive. We are advised by the vendor that this Chevrolet drives well with no known faults, not that he has used it much! Fitted with an automatic transmission, this 3100 pick-up is supplied with a V5C registration document. A very impressive example.
