Hiawatha, Kansas, United States

  This is a 1956 Chevy 2-door Belair. that was originally Blue and White. As you can see from the pictures it needs re-done but is pretty complete. It has a 350 with a turbo 400 automatic transmission. Both motor and tranny work well. I did drive this one home and everything worked ok except the heater. The signals work but the lever is coming lose. It's loud and noisy with a exhaust leak in the dual pipes. Radio didn't work. It's a aftermarket tape player. May not be hookd up. I have repaired  the rust by the hood hinges and  the bottom of the front fenders behind the front tires. They both have headlight caps. It has new outer rockers and lower rear patch panels that were put on 20+ years ago. The trunk and rear floors are good. The fronts floors need replaced .The inner rockers have been patched. It needs inner rockers and all the floor braces need the outer ends repaired or replaced. It needs the rear tail pan. With all that being said it has a decent driver interior. It runs and drives decent for a old hot rod. Hard to find this complete. The glass is all good except the windshield is old and smokey along the bottom. I am a Kansas dealer so Kansas residents need to pay 8.8% sales tax to me. Other states pay in you home state. A non- refundable deposit of 500.00 is due within 48 hours and the balance within 7 day's. I prefer a wire transfer or cash on the balance. The car is for sale locally and I reserve the right to sell at any time. I am moving from Hiawatha to Kansas City,Mo and have the car in Kansas City now. You can look or pick it up from either place. Thanks. Call Scott 816-506-3789        I looked today and the toe boards are decent and the right front brace is good. The drivers rear floor is intact but weak on the outer edge. Both front floor pans need replaced. It was loud inside because the right front floor has a 6 inch hole in it and the tailpipe on the right side needs re attached.   Added 12/17/13    I replaced the starter and it works fine. The flywheel does have some worn teeth.  Also the motor is a later model 350 I believe as the oil dip stick is on the right side. I have removed most of the yellow paint. I'm still thinking which way to go on the floor.  Thanks, Scott    I can bring it to the Wichita, Kansas swapmeet Friday Feb 7 [if the weather isn.t to bad ].I have to work my part time job Saturday so I'll only be ther Friday.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze TD fires up its new diesel motor

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ever since General Motors confirmed plans to produce a diesel-powered Cruze back in 2011, we've been eagerly awaiting its arrival. And as part of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet has pulled back the cover on its oil-burning compact sedan, set to go on sale in the near future with a starting price of $25,695, not including $810 for destination.
The heart and soul of the Cruze TD (that's its official name) is a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline four-cylinder engine rated at 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated solely to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine also has an overboost function that will increase torque to 280 lb-ft for up to ten seconds. The full brace of official specs haven't been released, but GM tells us that highway fuel economy will come in at 42 miles per gallon. If that number sounds familiar, it's because the Volkswagen Jetta TDI has the exact same rating. Unlike the Jetta, however, the Cruze TD can run on B20 biodiesel, where as the Volkswagen can only accept B5.
Model-specific changes to this 2014 Cruze TD include an aero kit and unique 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's a full leather interior, and Chevrolet will provide two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance, not to mention a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

GM won't pay owners of recalled cars for lost value

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:30:00 EST

Kenneth Feinberg, the man in charge of the General Motors compensation fund dealing with the its widespread ignition switch woes, has issued an informal, two-letter response to the plaintiffs in more than 70 lawsuits seeking redress for lost resale value of their Cobalts: "No." The cases were recently combined into one, but Feinberg told The Detroit News that the fund will deal "only with death and physical injury claims," and that "perceived diminished value" will get no consideration.
ALG, the firm specializing in establishing residual values, determined that Cobalt owners had lost $300 compared to the segment competition and doesn't envision any long-term effects from the recall situation. Feinberg's statement comes in advance of public details on how the compensation fund will work and adheres to GM's long-held position on the matter. The company has already asked a judge to throw out such suits using the pre-bankruptcy defense, even as it stopped using that defense in cases of injury and death.
With plenty of potential gain from the GM suit, however, don't expect the plaintiffs to give up yet. When Toyota was sued for the same reason during the unintended acceleration debacle, it eventually settled the case for between $1 billion and $1.4 billion just to get it over with. Since the 85 law firms involved in the Toyota litigation took home more than $250 million of that total, we shouldn't expect the attorneys to give up on a GM payout, either.

Lutz dishes dirt on GM in latest Autoline Detroit

Bob Lutz sits down for Autoline Detroit - Click above to watch video after the jump
Autoline Detroit recently played host to Bob Lutz, and, as is always the case, the former General Motors vice chairman dished out some great commentary. Lutz was promoting his new book Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business, and talk quickly turned to his role as it related to product development and high-level decision making at GM. While on the topic of brand management, Lutz revealed a few rather interesting tidbits about his former employer:
All Chevrolet vehicles were required to have five-spoke aluminum wheels and a chrome band up front, as part of the Bowtie brand's overall image.
