1958 Chevrolet Bel Air
Sport Coupe (2-door hardtop)
This is a nice Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door hardtop. It is powered by a Chevy 350 cu. in. V-8 with an Edelbrock four barrel carburetor and intake manifold. The transmission is a stock 3 speed manual with column shift; the clutch is good and tight.
The interior is custom brown naugahyde with tan herringbone cloth inserts and the original upholstery trim. It rides on BF Goodrich TA radials and Cragar wheels. It is a GREAT driver! I've drive it from Sequim, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula all the way to Sacramento, California without a bit of trouble, and it was a smooth ride.
I bought this car about eight years ago on eBay - sight unseen. It was a littler rougher than it looked in the pictures. Since then, I've done and had a lot of work done over the years to make it as nice as it is now. Here is a list:
The floor pans and trunk had some rust, which I ground down, painted with POR 13 and patched with fiberglasss. It was not so bad that I considered it necessary to remove and replace with patch panels.
I've had some mechanical improvements done including replacing the cam and lifters, replacing both front and rear coil springs, installed rear air-shocks, replaced the gas tank, installed a new electric fuel pump, installed a new heater core and had the heater control valve rebuilt, and had a new exhaust system with glass pack mufflers installed. I also installed a new under dash wiring loom and fuse box.
With the exception of the upholstery, I have completely gone through the interior including having the dash and interior trim repainted to match the Bronze paint color, replaced all window and door handles, installed new dash trim/bezels/glove box/door threshold, replaced the firewall pad and kick panels, installed a new carpet kit and sound insulation over the floorboards, replaced the trunk mat and panels, and installed a new made to fit AM/FM radio with a split front stereo speaker in the dash which is set up for iPod on the auziliary band.
I replaced the wind wing and side door glass and frames, and replaced the rubber windshield and rear window seals.
I've seen two other '58 Chevy Sport Coupes for sale in the last year or so that look just like my car including paint color, tires, and rims; they're both frame-off restorations and the owners were seeking $50,000+/-. I also saw one recently that is a project car and the owner has a "buy it now" price of $13,850. My car is very well "buy it now" priced at $16,500. It is not a high-dollar show car for the following reasons:
The exterior paint job looks great from 10+ feet away, but whoever painted it didn't put enough time and energy preparing the car for painting. The panels are not laser straight and some sanding swirls are noticeable on the trunk lid around the lock.
Some of the stainless trim is dented.
I failed to replace the front windshield when I had the rubber replaced, and some hazing is noticable around the edges. Also, I have not been able to find new rear quarter window glass with frames; the frames are pitted.
I bought and improved the car to be a good looking "driver".
So, you are bidding on a reasonably priced, good looking, and reliable 1958 Chevy Sport Coupe. I've had a lot of fun with it, but I have a couple of other toy cars and I'm too busy as a self-employed person to drive all three of them.
If you have questions, I can be reached at (360) 504-2440. If you have the time and interest, come see the car in Sequim, Washington. Once the auction has ended, the down payment of $1,000 is due through PayPal within 48 hours. The balance must be received in verified funds, cash or wire transfer, within 7 days and prior to my releasing the vehicle. The successful bidder can fly into Seattle, Washington and drive this car home! Shipping is an alternative; I am not offering shipping on this vehicle. However, I will work with the winning bidder's shipper. My zip code is 98382 if you want to obtain shipping quotes.
Thank you for looking and Happy Bidding!

We've already seen leaked specs and potential spy shots, but the refreshed 2014 Chevrolet Camaro will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show in a few weeks.

Besides a tweaked exterior and the possibility of a high-output LS7 under the hood, we really don't know much else about the 2014 Camaro, but here's hoping for an improved interior, too.
In addition to the refreshed Camaro, Chevrolet will also be showing off the recently introduced Chevrolet SS, making its debut on the auto show circuit, and we'll also get our first look at the C7 Corvette coupe and convertible side-by-side.
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.
The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo is the rare concept car that salutes a seminal moment in history, yet also borders on science fiction.
Revealed Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the concept uses the name of one of Chevy's historic racing partnerships, with Chaparral Racing, which dates to the 1960s. Chaparrals raced successfully at a range of levels, including IndyCar, Trans-Am and SCCA competition.
But the history ends there, as the concept's main purpose is as a racecar in a downloadable update for the PlayStation 3 game Gran Turismo 6.
