listing this for a friend who doesn't do computers. he traded a piece of property for the car to get it for his wife, but since these cars in their original state are not known for their steering/braking/handling abilities she never really drove it. guess when they first got it she backed it into her other car as the brakes needed work. made a dent around the bottom area of the drivers side tail light. the only dent in an otherwise beautiful 55. original miles and I believe he said he is the 3rd owner. 235 six cylinder 3 on the tree manual transmission with pull out overdrive. motor runs like the day it was new. I have built and owned a lot of these cars and this one is in just unbelievable condition. came from the high desert in the bend, oregon area and still has the dealer ID on the trunk deck. tires look like new and he was told it is only the 2nd set of tires it has ever had. looks as though the vinyl part of the upholstery was redone but the cloth inserts look original. the front carpet is original with a small wear spot near the sill plate on the passenger side. rear carpet looks new. tiny bit of sun cracking on the driver side interior door panel where you pull the door closed. these are the only minor flaws on an almost new looking 55. he told me EVERYTHING works with the exception of the fuel gauge. all interior lights came on when I had the doors open. glove box light comes on when you open the glove box. if you like AM he says the radio plays good. with very little effort this car could easily be a 10. I looked this car over from top to bottom, took all the pictures, and the few things at the beginning of this description are the only things I could find. all the glass and exterior trim looks perfect as does all the stainless interior trim. cowl tag info: style no 55-1031037D body no 0 1904 trim no 519 10 paint no 614S top acc ez. the owner of the vehicle states he will trade it for a 160? series excavator. he does a lot of that kind of work and is only parting with the car to make a down payment on a new excavator. please don't wast my time with any 10 thousand dollar offers. we listed it on a fixed format so everyone knows this guy is not some joker having his buddies run up the bids like happens with a bunch of these auction style sales. whoever gets this car will definitely NOT be disappointed or have buyers remorse in any way. Its summer in the beautiful NW. fly out and drive it home! I took well over a hundred pictures and many close-ups with my digital SLR. apparently ebay now believes that all those extra pictures will not help you make a better buying decision, so if you are serious about this vehicle please feel free to email me for the link. thanks for looking!

To say that things aren't going well for the newly redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is a pretty sizable understatement. Reports have been swirling about the Malibu getting an emergency design refresh, less than a year after its introduction, as well as having its production at the Fairfax Assembly Plant halted twice already this year for excessive inventory. Now, Motor Trend is reporting that the midsize sedan will be receiving price drops across the board ranging from $300 on a number of models up to $770 on the 1LT trim; offsetting some of MSRP drop, though, the destination charge has increased from $760 to $810.

Without destination, the entry-level Malibu LS now starts at $21,995, which is still about $300 more than a Honda Accord and about $300 less than the segment's top-selling Toyota Camry. This new pricing also drops the price of the Eco, 2LT and 3LT trims by $300. The LTZ trim has dropped by $415, meaning that the Malibu's top dog now starts at just under $30,000, excluding destination.
Here are the new starting prices for all eight of the Malibu trim levels compared to the previous prices for the 2013 model year (including destination):
Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. That's a lesson that is currently being taught to General Motors, because despite a strong showing from its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the General's pickup sales still can't best those of cross-town rival Ford.

With 59,163 trucks moved, GM fell just over 1,000 units short of toppling Ford, and one of the main reasons for that, according to GM's chief sales analyst, was due to a lack of variety in the engines and body styles available on dealer lots. "We are still over-weighted toward crew-cab V8 trucks. Our light-duty mix will moderate over time as our launch progresses," said Kurt McNeil.
Loading dealers with the popular combination of the 5.3-liter V8 and the four-door, Crew Cab body style was intentional during the truck's launch, but as supplies of leftover 2013 models, which are being sold at heavy incentives, are beginning to wane, both budget-conscious and high-dollar buyers are looking elsewhere instead of at the volume model pickups.
There could hardly be more riding on the next-generation General Motors full-size pickup trucks, so the automaker has wisely made sure to have a selection of different models on hand at the Detroit Auto Show to show off. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra were both officially introduced last month at a stand-alone reveal, and now they'll be on display for the public to see in various body configurations and trim levels.
The Silverado LTZ Crew Cab and Sierra SLE Extended Cab are aimed at providing more of a high-end pickup experience, while the Silverado LT Z71 Extended Cab and Sierra SLT Z71 Crew Cab should have off-road fans scouting out their favorite trails. The crew cab trucks won't go into production until sometime during the second quarter of this year - with other bodystyles coming later in the year - but we have plenty of live images from Detroit for you to enjoy.
