We acquired this fantastic ’52 3100 from a great car guy in SC who has great taste when it comes to Hot Rods and muscle cars.  He loves to own a variety of cars and trucks and many times will build them from the ground up, or occasionally he finds something that catches his eye and then he takes them to the next level.  He purchased this truck under a year ago after the previous owner spent some serious money having the restoration and modifications performed by a high end California restoration shop. At that time it had a Crate 350 installed but soon after he bought it he contracted with a Performance shop that has built quite a few motors for him. They decided to go with a 383 Stroker this time with a tame 450hp, topped off with an Inglese 8 Stack fuel injection system and backed by a 700R4 Overdrive transmission.  The total restoration has less then 700 miles on it and the motor itself is still being broken in with under 300 miles on it.  This truck has all of the great features that you would expect plus some pretty cool custom touches.  She truly stands out thanks in part to the color, quality and stance.  This truck was built to win shows but also made to be driven and enjoyed. I have had the pleasure of putting about 50 miles on it recently and it drives and handling amazingly and drew quite the crowd at a recent Cruise-in of over 1000 vehicles.  I will do my best to provide enough large images, a video of it starting up and running, and a detailed and honest description to help you determine if this is the Hot Rod Truck for you! We do have this truck advertised on several other sites and reserve the right to end our listing if it sells before the end. Serious buyers should give me a call to discuss putting this truck in their garage before the next car guy or gal does!! Sit back and enjoy!
 
This truck was restored in California and was finished in August 2013. The gentleman who had the restoration done picked a jaw-dropping gorgeous color of Pearl Cream that flows beautifully on the curvy lines of this truck.   As you can see the roof was chopped 3″ professionally and the best way to describe this trucks body is “smoothed and slammed”! Door handles were shaved with electric poppers installed, rear roll pan with frenched in taillights, side exhaust sculpted in to the running boards, custom molded bed rails, custom power operated bed covers over a polished aluminum diamond plate inner bed with custom mini tubs, custom shaved hood with custom automated hood actuator lift, and on and on!!! Halogen headlights with turn signals integrated in the chrome front bumper Paint is near flawless and body gaps excellent. Body panels are extremely straight.  Custom tinted glass and windshield look awesome.  The only real flaws I noticed are a couple of chips on the bottom edge of the hood that cannot be seen when hood is down and maybe a tiny chip or two elsewhere just to be safe.  This is a show winning quality truck and I am sure the next owner will be extremely pleased with the quality!! I will let the pics do the talking:

Complimenting the Pearl Cream exterior is a gorgeous custom Slate Gray and Ivory colored leather and suede interior.  Front bucket seats are power with several comfort controls and are wrapped in beautiful and supple Ivory and slate gray leather.  These seats are extremely comfortable and you will be amazed how much room is inside the cab even with the 3″ chop of the roof. I am 6 ft. and there is plenty of head and leg room for taller drivers and passengers.  Custom door panels with leather and suede accents look awesome. Headliner finished in grey suede. Custom fabricated center console houses the power window switches as well as 2 usb charging ports. Custom carpeting and floor mats. Beautiful polished I-Did it tilt steering column with a custom polished Billett leather wrapped steering wheel.  Polished Billett knobs all along the dash. Custom switches on the dash that control the power bed lift actuators and powered hood lift actuator.  Icy cold Vintage Air conditioning neatly installed under dash. Nice original style polished dash panels. Great set of Dolphin white face gauges. Awesome custom touch screen stereo system neatly installed with flip up screen, custom multi speaker system with custom mounted amp and sub neatly mounted behind front seats.  All new wiring throughout the truck.  Everything is working properly although the speedometer is reading about 10mph fast.  Just under 700 miles on the odometer since the truck was built. Interior is show quality just like the exterior! Take a peek inside…she sure is comfy!!!

As I mentioned, the previous owner had a professionally built 383 Stroker V8 motor built specifically for this truck in May, 2014. There are just under 300 miles on this motor so it is barely broken in. I have the receipts for the build on the motor with all of the details as well as the dyno sheet and a CD of the actual dyno test that was performed.  He wanted to dress this motor up a bit and make sure it was going to be extremely low maintenance so he added an Inglese 8 stack fuel injection system which is awesome and looks amazing.  Ceramic coated polished headers breath out a great set of hooker header mufflers that exit neatly out the side of the running boards. I will not list all of the performance components that went in to the build of the motor but they are all top name brand high performance parts and cost him a little over $17,000. 2 words describe the accessories under the hood, Chromed and polished! A March Polished serpentine pulley kit organizes all of the belts to the accessories and looks awesome. MSD coil and and ignition system fires this baby up.  New, new new…..!!! Power is put to the rear end through a brand new 700R4 Automatic overdrive transition that shifts beautifully. Suspension and handling is awesome . Mustang II front clip with custom lowered front suspension, custom lowered rear suspension with custom rear traction bars and leaf springs. 4 Wheel power disc brakes, drilled and slotted rotors and  painted calibers.  Power steering handles beautifully and power brakes stop this truck with ease. This truck truly drives and handles like a new truck and nothing like a 1950’s truck…..all good!! I am sure I am missing quite a few details when it comes to the drivetrain and suspension but I have receipts that detail all that was done.  To drive it is to love it!!!! Of course lets not forget the gorgeous set of expensive custom wheels. 20″ rears and 18’s up front wrapped in Mickey Thompson street tires. Take a look and then make sure you listen to the video of this Hot Rod starting up and running!!
