Thanks for taking a look at our awesome 1955 GMC 3100 Shop Truck. Presented in Hot Rod Black with Red Highlights, she’s a looker and a Bad Ass with plenty of punch. She’s not perfect. More of a brawler looking for a good time.
No Reserve. One opening bid could be a winner. Bid to own and watch out for those last minute snipers. We only have one. We're not running a museum or posting for fun. Our cars sell. This vehicle is offered for sale locally and on our website and may be removed from ebay if sold elsewhere.
These Tri Five trucks from GM made just a 3 year run. Much like the fabled Tri-Five coupes, BelAirs and Nomads, these were the best looking trucks to come along in years and have been a collector favorite ever since. This is the “Big” rear window model you want. It’s an Oakland California built truck that looks to have stayed local.
Shop truck solid, not show truck prefect. Shaved door handles with poppers. 57 Chevy smoothy hood. Good glass. Custom grill and front bumper. Red dyed fresh oak bed is all new with clear resin finish, new strips and fasteners. Custom tail lights. Roll pan, Front Spoiler. Chevrolet tailgate. See the pictures and the video.
Power windows, Door poppers, Tilt wheel, Skull shifter, Bluetooth Audio with USB, nice Bench seat, New red carpet. Cool vinyl trim in machine turned pattern door panels, inner steps and dash.
Bullet center caps
350 CID GM V8, Chrome Valve covers, Freshly rebuilt Edelbrock carburetor, Edelbrock Manifold. Headers with Dual exhaust. Modern 1 wire alternator. California Smog EXEMPT. Runs strong.
4 Speed manual transmission. Positraction Rear Axle.
Power steering. Front disc conversion, rear drum brakes.
The trim is in good shape. See pics and video.
Glass is in good condition throughout. Power windows.
The odometer indicates 34865 miles. We don't believe it and suspect that it has rolled over. How many times is anyone's guess. TMU to be safe.
DMV / Documentation
The California title is clear and clean. Registration is on PNO. 1 license plate. 57 Chevy smoothy hood, Chevrolet on the tailgate and the title says GMC. Seems like she's a bit of a mutt.
There always seems to be some cool Tri Five trucks available but many of them have been restored to near showpieces. While these are super cool trucks, it’s hard to justify truly using them as trucks anymore. We kept this one basic and useable. Even that shiny red bedwood is coated in clear, hard resin to add years of durability.
Please come inspect this great truck before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 64 year old truck. It is not a new soul sucking appliance like the Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your ride.
We hope you enjoy the video.
