1955 Chevrolet -two Door Sedan, Equipped With Ls2 & 4l60e on 2040-cars
Johnson City, Texas, United States
Selling my 1955 Chevy 150 Sedan. A previous owner put Bel-Air trim inside and out so I left it as is. If only they had known! This Tri-5 Classic can be driven anywhere. The 2006 LS2 & 4L60E drive train make this little sleeper fun, dependable, economical and very fast. The patina paint and powder coated bumpers make it easy to clean. With Power steering(605), Power disc brakes up front, Tilt Chrome column, Vintage A/C-heat-defrost with controls in stock position(new Sandon 508 AC compressor), Front stabilizer and low stance, it is a pleasure to drive. It handles like a sports car, stops on a dime and gives you instant response when you press on the pedal. "Classic Instruments" gauge panel in the stock bezel keep you informed of all critical operation. Stock electric 2-speed windshield wipers. The front seats are 67 GTO w/new seat covers. The rear is a stock 55 Chevy that is rolled and pleated vinyl as are the door panels. The carpet is adequate, not great, but presentable. I removed all the seats and carpet when I installed the new seat covers. I installed hush-mat insulation from the firewall to and including the trunk. I built a console to store the engine and gas pedal computer. The console is divided so there is room for other storage as well. The cover can be quickly removed for maintenance or inspection. The glove box is shallow due to the AC unit, but there is room for storage. There is also a spacious storage console/2-cup holder mounted between the seats. It still has the original headliner,sun visors and glass. The glass has some bubbling and scratches, but no cracks. The felts and rubbers are good, not new. All door handles and window cranks work properly. Door locks have key and work great. The rear windows are stationary and there is no window hardware on this model. New wiring harness front to back. Head lights(high-low),tail lights(LED's),turn signals,back-up lights,stop lights, dash lights work properly. Floor interior lights on a toggle switch.
Stock 2006 LS2, 6.0, all aluminum 400HP Fuel Injected motor. 21 MPG Highway. Stand alone, engine harness and drive by wire accelerator pedal harness where built by Speed and Performance. Test receptacle under dash. I was told by the previous seller that Speed and Performance installed the drive train and electronics as well. There name and there serial number are on the computers. Coated headers w/sensors move the exhaust. The accessories turn via a serpentine belt system w/chrome mounting brackets and pulleys. Huge 2 row/1" core crossflow radiator and a 16" Electric fan keeps everything cool. The fan is also on a toggle switch. I have not needed to use the fan in the winter.
Matching 4L60E from same donor car. The quicker you mash the pedal, the quicker it shifts. The differential is an 8.5 10 Bolt Chevy with 3:73 gears. Traction bars and mono-leaf Fiberglass rear springs help launch this old shoe-box with little hesitation.
Stock 55 Chevy w/stock front suspension. New upper and lower ball joints, A-arm bushings, stabilizer bar, front disc brake conversion(drums on rear) and 2" dropped spindles. Front tires are 215/60R/15, rear are 255/60R/15(biggest I could get in stock wheel welds) on Wheel Vintiques wheels. Small spare in trunk w/small floor jack and lug wrench. Extra serpentine belt(just in case).
Tried to show a picture of a dent in the lower passenger side door. It also exposed some body filler. It can be repaired but I was reminded that this is a nostalgic driver and no one will notice anyway. New trunk mat installed after installing hush-mat insulation.
A previous owner cut the dash where the radio goes, so I put a Sony AM/FM/CD/Cassette player in the hole. Kenwood speakers are mounted in the rear deck.I didn't install an antenna because I prefer to pick my own music. Floor pan on passenger side has an amateur repair job, but it is sturdy and insulated. Installed a new cigarette lighter receptacle with correct knob to charge cell phones and other accessories.
Sure I forgot something. Emails OK, but I prefer to talk in person. So please call with any relative questions @512-466-5307. All "REASONABLE OFFERS" considered. I am negotiable, but not desperate. Not interested in any trades. Need the room for other projects. Can send other pictures if necessary
NO SCAMMERS, TIRE KICKERS, THIRD PARTY SELLERS, GAME PLAYERS. If you DO NOT have the funds to close the deal immediately, DO NOT BID! Your adherence to this request will be greatly appreciated.
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS & HAPPY BIDDING.

General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.
Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.

Do not adjust your computer screen, you are not seeing the rebirth of the Pontiac brand. General Motors has chosen to use a G8 to disguise a test mule for the latest prototype of the forthcoming Chevrolet SS. The G8 was closely related to the Holden Commodore and Vauxhall VXR, the platform upon which the new Chevrolet performance model will be based. It should come as little surprise, then, that GM has opted to use the cladding from the former G8.
Thought the front clip of this mule is pure Pontiac, note the vents immediately behind the front wheel. That is a distinctive design hallmark of the Vauxhall VXR. Also note that this vehicle is right-hand drive, as the Holden and its Chevy counterpart will be very closely related. That likely includes potential drivetrains. The spy photos of this mule also reveal very wide rear tires, and rear wheels that do not match the fronts.
The wheel ranks right up there with the telescope and four-slice toaster in the pantheon of inventions that have moved humankind forward. But what if a circle in three dimensions had never occurred to anyone, and we all had just moved on without it? Perhaps we'd be driving around in Lucas Motors Landspeeders with anti-gravity engines. Or maybe we'd have the same cars we do today, just without wheels.
That's the thought experiment that seems to have led French photographer Renaud Marion to create his six-image series called Air Drive. The shots depict cars throughout many eras of motoring that look normal except for one thing: they have no wheels. The models used include a Jaguar XK120, Cadillac DeVille (shown above), Chevrolet El Camino and Camaro, and Mercedes-Benz SL and 300 roadsters.
Perhaps one day when our future becomes our past, you'll be able to walk the street and see with your own eyes the rust and patina of age on our nation's fleet of floating cars. Until then, Monsieur Marion's photographs will have to do.
