    Thanks for taking a look at our awesome 1955 GMC 3100 Shop Truck. Presented in Hot Rod Black with Red Highlights, she’s a looker and a Bad Ass with plenty of punch. She’s not perfect. More of a brawler looking for a good time.

    These Tri Five trucks from GM made just a 3 year run. Much like the fabled Tri-Five coupes, BelAirs and Nomads, these were the best looking trucks to come along in years and have been a collector favorite ever since. This is the “Big” rear window model you want. It’s an Oakland California built truck that looks to have stayed local.

    Shop truck solid, not show truck prefect. Shaved door handles with poppers. 57 smoothy hood. Good glass. Custom grill and front bumper. Red dyed fresh oak bed is all new with clear resin finish, new strips and fasteners. Custom tail lights. Roll pan, Front Spoiler. See the pictures and the video.

    There always seems to be some cool Tri Five trucks available but many of them have been restored to near showpieces. While these are super cool trucks, it’s hard to justify truly using them as trucks anymore. We kept this one basic and useable. Even that shiny red bedwood is coated in clear, hard resin to add years of durability.

    Please come inspect this great truck before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 64 year old truck. It is not a new soul sucking appliance like the Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your ride.

    We use a Worldwide transport network. Our cars regularly go to the east coast. Several have gone to Europe lately. We can help with setting up whatever you need. There is a page on our website dedicated to shipping information here
