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!!!!
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.
Think you've waited long enough for this? If so, then you'll want to savor the high-res photos we've so far been given of the 2014 Chevrolet SS, the first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan from The Bowtie in 17 years.
We all know its our version of the brand new VF-model Holden Commodore, but what's under the hood that earns the appellation "performance?" A 6.2-liter LS3 V8 engine producing 415 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. That's 35 hp and lb-ft less than the same engine is expected to produce in the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette. Chevrolet says the sedan will get from 0-to-60 miles per hour "in about five seconds."
Shifting comes courtesy of a six-speed automatic with paddles on the steering wheel, while stopping arrive via four-piston Brembo calipers up front, a single sliding piston in back. The forged aluminum wheels are 19-inchers all around, each set supporting right around 50 percent of the sedan's weight, and the aluminum hood and trunk are meant to keep the center of gravity low.
