 1955 Chevy Bel Air two door post.  I bought this car about 20 years ago in Alabama with the hopes of fixing it up but I'm in the military and just haven't had the time.  I've spent a lot of time and money on it over the years but as you can see, I've let it sit around too long this time and it needs attention by someone who has the time.

Drivetrain:  383 stroker, 350 turbo and 3.23 10 bolt posi rear-end.  Engine NOT running, will turnover and start but won't stay running 

- Rack and pinion power steering

- Front disc brakes

- Chrome tilt steering column.  (starting to pit from sitting around) 

- Duel exhaust

- 2" drop springs on the front, installed urethane bushings years ago

- Griffin 4 core aluminum radiator

Negatives:  

- Has 383 stroker that was professionally built about 15 years ago.  I haven't driven this car in over 2 1/2 years so I'm NOT claiming it runs or drives(but sure it will with some work).  I can say I've only put around 4-5 thousand miles on it.

- Will need complete interior, what you see in pictures is what will be included

- Will need body work, front floor pans(see pictures) .  I stripped this car down to bare metal and used spray can primer to cover bare metal.   I'm almost 100% sure that the quarters, floor, rocker panels and trunk are original.  Left side front fender in in excellent condition, Hood is in good condition, right side front fender is in fair condition, right door is in poor condition(I pulled creases out but would probably re-skin), left rear quarter panel has rot in front of wheel well, right rear quarter panel is in good shape(a little bondo), trunk is in decent shape, a little rot on inside weld seem, trunk is decent, has rot in back half(see pictures), roof will need work right above drivers door(see picture) 

Positives:

- All stainless is there and in really good shape, I removed it all 20 years ago and stored inside.

- Bought pretty much all chrome and emblems brand new and it's all still in like new condition in boxes to include:  At least $2,000 in chrome parts

10 piece triple chrome bumper

4 piece grill surround(top and bottom pieces got damp somehow so they're not in brand new condition but still very nice)

Hood Bird

Headlight bezels

Parking light bezels

Taillight bezels with solid red lens

Bel Air scripts

Door handles

Wiper bezels

Gold crests

All window felts

trunk seal

I replace all the glass in the car with smoked tinted glass but a vandal busted the passenger side windows.  Front/back windshield and driver side glass is in great shape.

VIN: C 55N041181

Cowl Tag:

Style 55-1011D

Body N 5689

Trim 531

Paint 627

I'm sure I'm missing a lot of stuff so feel free to contact me for more information or pictures.

GM recalls 8,500 Chevrolet Malibu models for rear suspension glitch

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:15:00 EST

According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.

This is your 2014 Chevrolet SS

Sat, 16 Feb 2013 00:01:00 EST

Think you've waited long enough for this? If so, then you'll want to savor the high-res photos we've so far been given of the 2014 Chevrolet SS, the first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan from The Bowtie in 17 years.
We all know its our version of the brand new VF-model Holden Commodore, but what's under the hood that earns the appellation "performance?" A 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine producing 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. That's 35 hp and lb-ft less than the same engine is expected to produce in the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. Chevrolet says the sedan will get from 0-to-60 miles per hour "in about five seconds."
Shifting comes courtesy of a six-speed automatic with paddles on the steering wheel, while stopping arrive via four-piston Brembo calipers up front, a single sliding piston in back. The forged aluminum wheels are 19-inchers all around, each set supporting right around 50 percent of the sedan's weight, and the aluminum hood and trunk are meant to keep the center of gravity low.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible gives us a couple of looks

Sat, 02 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.
