This popular trend extended even into Chevys pickup lineup. This 3100 model is nicely equipped with the reliable V8 and mated to an automatic transmission as well as air conditioning to keep you comfortable in the hot summer months.  It does sport the optional Deluxe Cab with the rounded rear glass and is superbly finished in a gorgeous bright red paint with a solid wood bed.  These trucks are one of the most sought after classic American trucks on the market.
