1956 Chevrolet Bel Air 4 door. I took this car in as a restoration that was started years ago and never completed. The car was completely taken apart and all parts were labled and bagged. I bolted a bunch of it back together just to see what all was included or missing. The body is very solid. It was sandblasted and etch primed but some surface rust was coming through so I reprimed it. Needs outer rocker panels, 2 front floor pans and some other minor patches here and there. The rear floor, trunk floor, trunk lid, doors, hood, fenders, and quarters are all very solid and just need some minor work. Everything pictured is included. There are a few boxes of tagged parts including all of the window regulators, wiring, etc. As far as I can figure, missing parts include....windshield, engine, tranny, steering column, and probably some small stuff here and there. The stainless trim is all very nice. No major dings or deep scratches. They all still have a label on them as you can see in the pics. The car also has aftermarket sway bars front and rear, and all of the brakes look to have been rebuilt within the past few years. I will try my best to find a steering column and get it installed before the auction ends. Bid to win this car. No reserve! I have a clear title to this car in hand and ready to go. If you need more pics, or have any questions, give me a call at 570-299-1755. Feel free to shoot me an offer.
The car can sit where it is for up to 30 days if it is paid for. I will be able to help load the car on to a transporter if needed.
PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU HAVE NO INTENTION TO BUY!!!!!!!! DO NOT BID IF YOU HAVE ZERO FEEDBACK OR JUST RECENTLY SIGNED UP FOR EBAY WITHOUT CONTACTING ME FIRST BY A PHONE CALL. I DONT HAVE TIME FOR GAMES OR SCAMMERS!!!!
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.
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.
There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.
To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.
