1960 Chevy 4 X 4 Panel Truck

Clear Title and presently Registered.
I have owned this truck for 10 years and was planning to bring it back to all it's glory. A health situation has set me and my projects back a couple years and now this one needs to go to someone with the time to do it right.
The body is sitting on a Blazer Frame and Drive Train.
Engine is 400 Small Block that runs  good. Some very light start up smoke  if it sits a bit. Probably valve seals ( I was going to do them when I had the nose off).
Front Disc Brakes
Brake line is broken so you cannot drive it home unless you want to patch it temporarily. I am including a complete InLine factory bent Stainless Steel Brake line Kit with the other new parts I have purchased towards the rebuild.
Side Door Handles have been shaved  and door poppers installed but will need to be adjusted and rewired on rebuild.
Wire harness is from newer Chevy van and everything works but accessories like radio and interior "Mood" lighting and door poppers should be rewired. 
Springs and bushings should be done. High or Low, Your Choice.
Needs one Window Regulator. (Drivers)
Frame is peeling  from old  paint used by previous owner and has some scaling but  SOLID FRAME!   Just time to clean it up right.
May need  some metal work on drivers metal  below floor boards. (All 1960 Chevy Pick Up Parts Fit)
I have Most Major Body Panels  but some stitching in will be needed on the Hood, rear corners of the body and a Couple  small spots in the interior above windshield. May need some windshield lip repair. ( I did not pull glass yet) 
Windshield does have 4 rock chips but I was always able to get a sticker and they have not traveled in 10 years of summer and winter running.
Lower inner door panels may make the door repairs easier but I did not buy those yet.

Here are some of the new parts I will include:
New Side window and vent window for Passenger Side ( I already installed  Drivers side) 
New in box, Complete Stainless Steel Factory Bent Brake  Line Kit by InLine   http://www.inlinetube.com/
New Never mounted Stainless Steel Headers  and all Gaskets and collector Parts
New Clutch with low miles  since installed 
New 31 x 15 Uniroyal Tires with low miles  since installed 
New Body Panels:
Drivers Door Skin
Passenger Door Lower Door Skin
Front Lower Bed Section ( for the area behind Passenger Door to Rear Wheel Well)
Cab Floor Outer Section ( To repair only major Floor area)
Front Fender Lower Rear Section.
Some  Gaskets: 
Rear Window Gaskets
Rear Tail Light Gaskets
Kick Panel Air Vent Door Gaskets 

I will include all Receipts for what I have done so far and some original correspondence I have from the original owner.

I have tried to hit all the faults I can think of to represent this truck as accurately as possible.
I will answer all questions so  Ask First before you Bid. Serious Buyers only Please. 
Mechanical updating will be straight ahead but if you do not have the resources for the body work then this one may not be the one for you unless you are going the Rat Route.
Lots of potential here! I really did not want to let it go. Thanks for Looking and Good luck Bidding!
I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END AUCTION EARLY, AS THIS VEHICLE IS FOR SALE LOCALLY.
SHIPPING arrangements are the sole responsibility of the BUYER. I will be glad to meet your shipper and assist loading.

Diesel Power finds the ultimate modified oil-burner

Sat, 24 Aug 2013 20:00:00 EST

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.
What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"

Use this PowerPoint when convincing your spouse to let you buy a Corvette

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.
When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.

GM recalling over 243,000 crossovers over possible seat belt defect

Tue, 17 Aug 2010 11:28:00 EST

2010 Buick Enclave - Click above for high-res image gallery
The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
