1957 Chevrolet 3100
LT-1 V8, 4-WHL DISC BRAKES, COILOVERS, A/C, POWER STEERING, POWER WINDOWS!
The successor to the Chevrolet Advance-Design series trucks, the Task Force was one heck of a flashy modern replacement! Mirroring styling elements found in many GM cars at the time, particularly the Bel Air, the Task Force series was introduced in 1955 and brought a new look to GM trucks. The direct predecessor to the venerable Apache pickup, these trucks carry a unique look while sharing plenty of attractive features of the Apache. An obvious choice for a stylish street rod, its no wonder this blue 1957 Chevrolet pickup looks so good!
The exterior of this truck is custom, but in a mild, minimalist sort of way. While the door handles are shaved and the tail lights are custom, it still retains the classic look. The medium blue paint has a gorgeous finish to it, and really highlights the shape and design of the body. The bed has been bedlined for added durability, and the gas tank filler has been relocated to the bed both for safety and appearance purposes. If you look closely, you'll see an old-school pickup truck street rod trick has been used as a latching system for the tailgate. GM seat belt ends have been installed, making the tailgate very secure and easy to release. Plus, the buckles make for a nice and tidy bed!
The interior is custom, just as one would expect. Modern leather bucket seats have been installed along with a matching leather console with cupholders. The door panels are aftermarket flame-pattern, but tasteful. Power windows and remote door poppers bring this truck into the 21st century. A slick digital instrument cluster has been used in favor of the original analog gauges and looks right at home with a blue backlight. You'll notice a Vintage Air control panel, which is indicative of the cold modern A/C system that has been installed. Perfect for cruising on a hot day! To keep the dash looking smooth and clean, a custom overhead console was put in place to house an aftermarket radio and tweeters. With a modern stereo system and A/C, this pickup is truly equipped for all your cruising needs!
Under the hood is a Chevrolet LT-1 350V8. Naturally, this is a fuel-injected engine which is much of the appeal. Billet pulley covers, a chrome alternator, custom engine cover, and a tidied up firewall make the engine bay just as appealing as the rest of the truck! This puppy fires right up like a modern vehicle, and has plenty of power to get off the line. Flame-pattern engraved valve covers stick to the custom theme without being over the top. The LT-1 is hooked up to a 4L60E transmission and sitting on coilover shocks at all four corners, which means this bad boy is set up right! This looks like a well done custom, making this '57 Chevy a turn-key street rod cruiser!
If you're looking for something unique that you can drive any time you like, don't overlook this truck. It is a tastefully done mild custom with plenty of flash and appeal without being over the top. Don't let this one-of-a-kind custom classic slip away!
