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!!!!
When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.
The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.
The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.
Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."
