Many collector-car enthusiasts seem to have this attitude that anytime a vehicle is modified in the least from its original configuration, then it’s a hot rod, for better or worse. Yet not every modified vehicle is a hot rod, as we see with this 1952 Chevrolet 3100 pickup. It’s not slammed on billet wheels, nor has it been subjected to an engine swap. Instead, it’s been selectively updated to keep it on the road and in service. From the seller’s description:
