For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a unique, one of a kind 1955 Chevrolet 3100 pickup. It's hard to find an area of sheet metal that hasn't been reworked. The top has been chopped, the bed was shortened, the hood has been pancacked and the body has also been channeled in order for the frame to sit higher in the chassis. When the top was cut, the windows were cut as well for proper fitment by using water jet cutting. A forward tilting hood is a unique take and it works beautifully. The door hinges have been relocated in order to switch them over to suicide door operation. Electric door poppers are in place of the original door handles and the mirrors have been removed for a clean and shaved appearance. The tailgate is welded shut and has flames tamped into the sheet metal The bed has an interesting look to it thanks to the wheel wells that have been enlarged to accommodate the gigantic wheel and tire combo. The rears are 285/50R20 and the fronts are 255/60R17. The bed itself has been airbrushed to resemble a wood bed. The fuel filler for the aluminum fuel cell is accessed by a flip up door in the center of the bed and the shape of the bed floor has been modified in order to fit the channeled chassis, primarily the rear axles. This smooth body is supported by an adjustable air suspension that is controlled by two switches mounted in the custom center console. Ride height can be independently adjusted for the front and rear. The rear suspension also consist of an adjustable four-link set up and a Mustang II for the front end. The Mustang II includes tubular upper and lower control arms along with rack and pinion steering. Slowing down is a breeze with four wheel disc brakes. Four wheel disc are a good thing to have with a power plant such as this one. Under the hood is a 454 cubic inch big block that's backed up by a TH-400. three speed automatic. Out back and sending the power to the rear wheels is a 12 bolt rear end housing 4.11 gears.

Inside is just as well built and thought out as the rest of the build. The seats are leather with Ostrich leather inserts as are the door panels and headliner. The floor is also leather! Dakota Digital gauges keep you well informed. The custom made center console houses the air suspension controls and the Lokar shifter. The center console stretches back past the bucket seats and up towards the rear window. The headliner also houses the stereo that can be controlled by remote. The rest of the controls are hidden under the dash to help retain the clean and uncluttered appearance.

No expense was spared for this one off build. If you want a one of a kind classic truck that doesn't have gawdy color combination or flames everywhere, look no further. Call 618-271-3000 for more information or stop by our St. Louis showroom. To view HD photos and video, visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com

1955 Chevrolet Apache

1955 Chevrolet Apache


Engine: 502 CID V8
Transmission: 4-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 75 ( since rebuilt )

Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer this 1955 Chevrolet Apache for sale. This truck has had very extensive work done to it and is in extremely good condition. All the work has been performed by Ekstensive Metal Works. Ekstensive Metal Works is better known by their TV show name "Texas Metal", which airs on the Velocity channel. Under and through the hood of this super clean truck is a Weiand supercharged 502 CID V8 that runs just as well as it looks. Sending the power to the rear end is a Turbo-400 three-speed transmission. The rear end is a 9" ford that is finished in a gloss black paint. The hood cut-out provides room for the blower and intake to stick through and gives a "shaker hood" feel to the front of the truck. The massive blower provides an intoxicating whine even when sitting at idle and rivals the volume of the already loud exhaust system which features electric cutouts that dump at the headers. Feeding the gigantic 6-71 blower are two Holley four-barrel carburetors that ensure this beauty doesn’t run out of fuel to burn when under full boost. The fuel is sent to the engine via a polished new fuel tank that enhances the underbody of the truck. Setting the stance of the truck are adjustable coil-over shocks. The truck sits atop polished alloy Intro brand wheels wrapped in Pirelli performance tires. The front tires are 265/30 ZR22 and the rears are 405/25 ZR24. To put the rear tire size into perspective, the widest tires on a production car are on a Lamborghini Aventador SV... and they're only 355mm wide. When it comes time to stop those massive tires, the driver will appreciate the drilled and slotted Willwood front and rear disc brakes with black painted calipers. Moving outward, the exterior of this truck is in near perfect condition. All the chrome is very nice and in like new condition. The Sierra Sand colored paint is in excellent shape with almost no blemishes or imperfections. The bed wood has been replaced and is in very good condition as well with a deep stain to accent the bed from the paint. Overall, the exterior of this truck is almost perfect. Moving inward, getting into the truck is made classy by the suicide doors. Upon entering the vehicle, the driver will be greeted by light tan leather throughout and a tilt steering wheel. The doors feature a simple, yet elegant stitching pattern that reminds the driver that they're in a very well-built resto-mod. The leather bucket seats are very comfortable and spacious. Sitting between the two seats is a leather wrapped center console that houses the shifter. The dash of the truck is paint matched to the body and is in just as good condition. This truck also features power brakes and steering for comfortable cruising. Tucked in the dash is a modern CD player/radio that adds to the modern comfort of this beauty. Overall, this is an extremely well-done truck and is probably one of the finest examples of a resto-mod Chevrolet Apache around.

1960 Chevrolet Impala

1960 Chevrolet Impala


Engine: 283 CID V8
Transmission: 2-Speed Automatic
Mileage: 18,176 ( actual )

Now for sale in our Houston Showroom is this gorgeous 1960 Chevrolet Impala! This is no ordinary Impala. This is a true survivor car. The 283 CID V8 engine is the original that was put in the car in the factory when it was being put together. Covering only 18,176 miles since it first drove off the showroom floor all those years ago. Amazingly, the paint on this car has the original undercoat on it! Even the original AM radio in the car works as it should. This is part of a two-model-year run for the second generation of the much-loved Impala. The 1959 Chevrolet Impala was redesigned. Sharing bodyshells with lower-end Buicks and Oldsmobiles as well as with Pontiac, part of a GM economy move, the Chevrolet's wheelbase was 1-1/2 inches longer. Using a new X-frame chassis, the roof line was three inches lower, bodies were two inches wider, and curb weight increased. Its tailfins protruded outward, rather than upward. The taillights were a large "teardrop" design at each side, and two slim-wide nonfunctional front air intake scoops were added just above the grille, The Impala became a separate series, adding a four-door hardtop and four-door sedan, to the two-door Sport Coupe and convertible. Sport Coupes featured a shortened roof line and wrap-over back window. Standard were front and rear armrests, an electric clock, dual sliding sun visors, and crank-operated front vent windows. A contoured hooded instrument panel held deep-set gauges. A six-way power seat was a new option, as was "Speed minder", for the driver to set a needle at a specific speed and a buzzer would sound if the pre-set was exceeded. The 1960 Impala models reinstated three round taillights on each side, and a white band running along the rear fenders. Anyone looking at the pictures and video of this beautiful machine can clearly see why it’s a great buy. The design is timeless. Don’t wait until it’s gone to inquire. Don’t miss your chance to get behind the wheel of this one. Contact Gateway Classic Cars in Houston for more information. Financing and shipping options are available. Office hours are Monday through Saturday 9-5pm central time. The telephone number for our showroom is (832) 243-6220 or if you prefer, you can email us at houston@gatewayclassiccars.com.
