Further info:

This delightful lefthand drive truck was imported to the UK from Florida in 2015 and has clearly been the subject of a major restoration and customisation programme. It is equipped with coil over suspension at the front, plus power steering and brakes - the brakes and rear axle were all sourced from a `74 Chevrolet Nova. The 327ci (5.36-litre) small block Chevy V8 engine was reconditioned c.8,000 miles ago and is said to give good oil pressure. It is equipped with Edelbrock manifold and 4-barrel carburettor, plus electronic ignition. The pickup's specification nowadays includes electric Chrysler 300 seats, electric windows, air conditioning, electric wipers, rear mounted fuel tank and battery, and a removable tow bar. The eye-catching ensemble rides on Corvette slotted mag wheels and is finished in a deep shade of Red complemented by Black interior trim. Chevrolet's 3100 model was a member of its so-called Advance-Design series that ran from 1947 to 1955.
