Talking 1955 Chevy 3100

Dad and I restored this 25 years ago....WOW has it really been that long. This was my daily driver in high school, and then when I went to A&M dad traded me his S-10 for it so I could get around College Station easier. Truck has since been parked in the garage for about 10 years now (it was started several times a year and ran for 20-30 minutes). I aired the tires up and dropped a new battery in it this morning and she fired right up.

Very nice, as I was scrolling down I was wondering what powered it. Had a '51 model with the same 235. Also had the remote oil filter and the same aftermarket turn signal control. Oh the memories......

Is that the original seat in it. Also what gauges do you have in there. I am working on a 1951 GMC and needing some ideas for it.

It is the original seat, but an aftermarket seat cover. We have all the original gauges in the dash but added the tachometer. We also added a temperature gauge and fuel gauge because the original didn't work.

Good deal. Thank you. My original gauges were in bad shape. Figured I would go with something new. My original seat was rusted out so I will probably look for some gm seats with the belts in the backrest.

We cleaned up the original gauges and put all new stickers on them.
