As we see it, you could take this great 1954 5-window 1/2-ton pick-up in a few directions. Jump in and enjoy the pure nostalgia of driving one of Chevrolet’s “Advance-Design” series trucks in its nearly original design…OR take it to the next level with an extremely solid foundation to go full-on resto or resto mod. Whichever you choose, you’re bound to turn heads all while grinning ear to ear driving this highly sought 3100.
Known by Chevrolet as the “Advance-Design” truck, 1954 was a significant transitional design change period for the Chevy half-ton before ending in 1955. Not many have survived. The first year a 1-piece windshield was used plus new dashboard and steering wheel. Due to cost, chrome grille’s weren’t a popular option so they’re hard to find. Ours has it! The 235 cid inline-6 was redesigned to be more stout and reliable. Ours is mated to the 4-speed manual gearbox on the floor.
