Patina trucks teach us there's more than meets the eye. After all, with a terrific gloss, upgraded suspension, and a powerful V8, this 1952 GMC 3100 5-window pickup has a cool kind of confidence that goes beyond its worn-in appearance.
This is a patina'd body, which is always going to get you attention and start conversations wherever you go. But what gives this one back the hint of luster it lost decades ago is a new clearcoat finish. It seals in the distinct appearance and adds some protection, which is a good thing considering all the other investments that have been made to make this a long-term classic. You see its true charm in the glossy wood truck bed, bright trim, and pinstriping on the hood and tailgate. And the desirable 5-window body is always in style. Plus, the lowered suspension neatly tucks modern 16-inch alloys under the classic fender lines hint at more upgrades beneath the skin.
Inside there has been an investment in comfort without losing the vintage attitude. New carpeting, side panels, and door trim give you a fresh feeling. Plus, the taut black on the bench seat and glossy black dash complete this stylish look. You get the classic elements, like the art deco dash. But now that's integrated with more modern comfort with upgrades like the black and chrome steering wheel, tilt column, and full Classics instruments gauges.
Under the hood is a terrific V8 upgrade. You have a tidy setup with extra flair on the air topper and valve covers. There are even nice extras like the serpentine belt system and A/C compressor already in place. The 350 cubic-inch motor is far more displacement than what came on this GMC series, and this one is further enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, hi-rise aluminum intake, and shorty headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. And if this gets you thinking about cruising this patina machine, don't forget to check out the undercarriage. There you'll spot some terrific modern integration of a Ford Crown Vic front end and four-wheel disc brakes. Plus, with a four speed automatic transmission, power steering, and the grip of modern tires, you see how comfortable it is to cruise this patina machine.
This is an exceptionally cool patina custom that's unique, sporty, and all-around comfortable. So don't miss out on something this distinct. Call today!!!
