We are proud to present another work of art from FSD Hot Rod Ranch, a gorgeous vintage customized pick-up truck – and yes, it is for sale!
A 1953 Chevrolet 3100 with a Corvette LT1 V8 motor featuring a FITech GO EFI 400 HP fuel injection system for ultimate performance. According to Hot Rod Magazine, the LT1 is the highest base horsepower and torque engine that GM’s ever produced for the Corvette, as well as the most efficient. A GM 700RA automatic, it has been converted to a new process gear 4×4 transfer system and sits on a Chevrolet Blazer 4×4 frame. It also features a Flowmaster Exhaust.
And of course in Florida, you want AC, so this truck includes vintage air.
Now for the bling! The exterior sports Signal Red paint, with chrome bumpers and trim. Hand-painted graphics and pinstripes add to the overall picture as well as a custom oak wood bed and rails. The wheels are Chevrolet Rallys with locking hubs. The crowning touch is a 1940 Packard Swan hood ornament!
The interior sports original steel dash with chrome trim, a custom-molded dash RPM Tach, Beede Gauges and a black leather interior with custom seats and center console.
Chevrolet introduced this new truck series post-war 1947. The “Advanced style” trucks started a new line of thinking and changes like horizontal to vertical front grilles, integrated headlights made them special. They also sported larger cabs. Installed signals became optimal in 1953.
While the FSD truck sports eye candy not original to the truck, it maintains that vintage feel from one of the best eras in American history! Add performance to die for, well…don’t miss out!

FSD is owned by Steve Phelps in association with his son Joshua and daughter Lorenna, hence Father Son Daughter (FSD) Hot Rod Ranch.
