I have a bunch of paperwork and receipts for all the work done on this car.
It was purchased in Sylacauga AL from the original owner around 1991 by a guy named John Holleman from Montgomery
AL.
John told me the car had only 30,000 miles on it and was a rust free car. He sold it to Wayne Smith of Vintage
Autos in Montgomery. Wayne did the engine swap from a 6 cylinder along with paint and interior in 1992-1993. The
car has been driven approximately 1150 miles since then. It has a 1957 283 with the correct 997 270hp heads, solid
lifter cam, dual quad intake and carter carbs along with an original bat wing oil bath air cleaner. The underside
is painted red oxide. Harbor Blue is the original color. The Harbor Blue paint is still holding up well for an
almost 25 year old single stage lacquer job. We did have to repaint the Larkspur blue with basecoat and clear as
it was dried out at cracking. There are some minor paint chips and a place on the passenger side rocker arm where
the paint flaked off and you can see the red primer. The car still has the original 3 on the tree manual
transmission and stock open rear end. It should have a rubber mat rather than carpet.
This is an unmolested car with all original body panels, floors and trunk. There is no sign of any body work or
repair done to any of the sheet metal.
Since I took these images, the car has been driven about 200 miles. I have also added new control arm bushings and
front shocks.
The car does need a few things like window felts. It still has the originals. It really needs a good detailing to
the engine and undercarriage. There is some chrome peeling from under the front bumper on the lower passenger
side.
There is a local airport in Springfield IL if you want to fly in to inspect. I would be happy to provide a ride
from the airport or you could uber or taxi in.

Corvette Stingray Shooting Brake under consideration by Callaway [w/poll]

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

"Turbo" Chevrolet Camaro is a 700-HP fantasy car come to life [w/video]

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 19:30:00 EST

For a concept car built to promote an animated movie about a snail that wants to go racing, this thing ain't half bad. The outsized monster you see before you started life as a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and then went through a big-time Hollywood makeover before being positioned on the Chevrolet stand here in Chicago.
This 2013 "Turbo" Camaro Coupe is getting the promotion machine ratcheted up for a new DreamWorks tale by the name of, you guessed it, Turbo. Coming this summer, the movie will follow one snail's quest to become a race driver worthy of making the cut at the Indy 500. Like many DreamWorks vehicles before it, we're guessing that the petrolhead snail will star in a movie that adults (especially racing fans) with have no trouble watching with their kids. Check out the trailer below to see if you agree.
As for the car, we're told that it is "instrumental" in transforming Turbo from snail into racer. Helping the beastly pony car in this mighty task, is an ankle-cracking front splitter matched by a ungodly huge rear wing out back, a COPO hood and a supercharged (yes, supercharged) V8 engine making more than 700 horsepower. 24-inch wheels all the way around - 10-inches wide in front and 15-inches wide in back - should allow the "Turbo" Camaro to hook up with ease, as well.

Watch this time-lapse build of the Chevy SS for NASCAR

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 12:43:00 EST

There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.
