1953 GMC 3100 Rat Rod Truck for sale in Florida

If you are looking for one of the kings of custom high end rat rods, then don't miss out on this one. The body shows its age and the normal farm truck use but then that's the way a Rat Rod Truck should look - right! Only the holes in the fire wall were welded up, the engine compartment was painted and the floor pans were replaced. All other old iron of the body is just right and just as found. Most of the glass, vent windows and rubber is new.

The suspension is new and chassis is original but boxed and converted to independent front suspension. Thirteen inch Corvette power brakes are on all four corners. 20 inch x 8 inch Riddler custom wheels. The bed floor has been raised 4 inch. 70 year old recycled wood was used in the bed.

The interior is just as sharp and detailed as the frame and engine. The entire inside cab and door jams were painted using brier brown and saddle on the dash. It has a new headliner. The gauges are made by Dolphin and the shifter is a Lokar. One unique feature is the radio delete has been modified to accept the air ride switches and air gauge.

This 1953 GMC 3100 Rat Rod Truck is equipped with a Chevy tuned port fuel injected small block, the automatic transmission is a four speed 700 R4 and final is a 8.5 first generation Camaro rear end. It has an aluminum radiator.
