A true American Classic! For sale is a beautiful 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible. This car has had a complete frame off restoration. The restoration is about six years old. The car has new quarter and rocker panels, and the floor is solid. All of the upholstery is new as well. The power plant in this car is a completely rebuilt 283 V8, with a brand new CM600 4 barrel Edelbrock carb. The transmission in the car has been completely rebuilt as well. The color of the car is base coat clear coat GM Matador Red. The frame was bead blasted and professionally refinished in high gloss black. Everything on this car works great. This restoration was done very carefully and the car was gone through with a “fine tooth comb” so to speak. We have literally touched every piece on this car. The only problems with the car are on the convertible top there are two small tears were the top meets the body & the rear right bumper guard has a small amount of surface rust. We never re-chromed that piece. All in all this is a very solid, well done car, that with be sure to turn heads! The milage on the car is 68304, that is the original mileage, however there has been maybe 1000 miles put on the rebuilt motor.  The reason for selling? The owner, my father, is getting older and does not have time for this hobby any more. Please email for additional pictures, and for any questions. Thank you.

The fantastic thing about this car is that IT IS A NUMBERS MATCHING CAR!

The motor, tranny, generator, radiator, distributor housing, exhaust manifold, manifold intake, power steering pump, starter & rear and front differential, match. The convertible top also has the factory electric motor. The convertible top frame is original, and has been refinished in high gloss black. We believe that even the glass is original.

I do have the original radio but it is not working. We have replaced it with a reproduction Wonder Bar that is AM/FM with a digital tuner. I also have the original Rochester 4 barrel carb that has been re-built. The car does have the original padded dash as well. I also have the original jack.

Now for a list of some of the new parts,

New top

Firestone Whitewall original style tires from Coker

floor braces

New rear wells on both sides

Lots of great new sheet metal parts from Dan Chuck and Ecklers.

Leaf springs

Dual exhaust system

Brakes all the way around

And much more

Tarantino's stolen Chevy Malibu from Pulp Fiction recovered after 19 years [w/video]

Mon, 29 Apr 2013 10:15:00 EST

Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.

Chevrolet Camaros at SEMA are a mobile accessory catalog

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 09:02:00 EST

Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.
