1949 Chevrolet 3100, 3 Window Islip, NY

Introducing "The Xmas Truck", a 1949 Chevrolet 3100, 3-Window Pickup. This truck was actually our light display truck during the 2017 Christmas season and has now made its way through the restoration process. Additionally, this '49 was originally a 3600 long box, which we shorted to match up with the wheelbase on a 3100 box. Our customer wanted to keep the truck paint as original as possible and bring it to life with a matte clear finish.
