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!!!!
Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.
In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.
