This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 Deluxe 5-window show truck is the result of a professional, no-expense-spared, two-year custom build by famed Sterling Customs Hot Rod Shop in Blue Ridge, GA. The project began with the fabrication of a custom frame, which was fitted with a C6 Corvette suspension and RideTech coilovers. It is powered by a C6 Corvette drivetrain comprised of a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine with a rear-mounted 6-speed automatic transmission and transaxle. The all-steel body and bed received numerous modifications and custom features. All body joints were welded and smoothed or fitted without welding. The bed was extended and contoured, stake pockets and bed rails were closed, the front pockets were repositioned for symmetry and wheel tubs were added. Running boards were contoured and smoothed, and stainless-steel strips were added. It is finished with 20 coats of paint, including base coats, gold metal flake, custom-mixed red color coats and clear coats. Finally, the bed was fitted with a clear Lexan floor to allow for viewing of the C6 driveline. The interior was done by the well-known Pro Auto Custom Interiors in Knoxville, TN, where Steve Holcomb designed and created a custom interior with leather seats, custom console and headliner and many other custom touches. The truck also features power steering, power windows and air conditioning. This pickup has won numerous awards from the International Show Car Association, National Street Rod Association and Goodguys for design, paint, interior and quality.
