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.

Race Recap: 2013 Indianapolis 500 better than Bollywood; all the emotion, none of the music [spoilers]

Mon, 27 May 2013 18:55:00 EST

If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.
But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.

Why Cadillac thinks it needs to succeed in Europe to sell cars elsewhere

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.

GM recalls 8,500 Chevrolet Malibu models for rear suspension glitch

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:15:00 EST

According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
