Up for auction is my 1962 Suburban. I was in the process of restoring this,but unexpected medical bills are forcing me to sell it. Below is a list of work that has been completed on the vehicle.

1)NEW fuel tank,sending unit and fuel filters.

2)Fresh transmission filter and fluid change.

3)Changed engine oil and filter

4)Tune up including plugs,wires,distributor cap,rotor button,points,condenser and coil.

5)Replaced one rear brake line that was rusted

6)Good battery

7)Cooper radial Tires with good tread.

The previous owner replaced the six cylinder engine with a 327 2bbl. According to the serial number on the block,it is a 1969 model.

The transmission is a THD350 from the same year.

It originally had a two speed power glide.

Odometer reads 50,837. Not sure if this original, or if it has tripped. Speedometer does not work.

It runs and drives well. Doesn't smoke at all and holds good oil pressure at all rpm ranges. It has aftermarket oil,temp, and amp. gauges.

It has manual steering, which is tight. Manual brakes, which hold well.

It has stock manifolds and a single exhaust with a stock muffler.

The radiator may need repair, as I have noticed some coolant seepage near the top, when the vehicle has reached operating temperature. It just appears wet, does not leak to the ground.

The lights and wipers function as they should. I am not sure about the heater. I have not tried it. Has the original AM radio, which doesn't appear to work.

It has been painted, at least once before I purchased it. It is due for a paint job and body work now. I have included photos of each panel to show exact condition. It has clamshell rear doors and sliding side windows.

The previous owner used it as a flower delivery truck, and had welded some metal racks in the rear to hold plant trays. There are some spots that will need to be filled where these were welded in. See interior photos for close ups of these areas.

It has bucket seats from another vehicle with shoulder strap seat belts. They are in good condition.

The back cargo area has the original rubber mat in place, and has the mounting holes for the original rear seats. Unfortunately I do not have the seats.

The original wooden floor in the cargo area has been replaced with thick, marine grade plywood, which is solid.

The undercarriage and frame rails have some surface rust, but are solid. There is one small rust hole in the bottom leg of one frame rail near the back,on the driver's side. This does not affect the strength of the chassis, since it is not on the side portion of the frame. I have attached a photo detailing this area. It appears to have rusted between two holes that were drilled in the frame when the chassis was built.

I have tired to describe this vehicle and thoroughly and honestly as possible. Please email me with any questions.

Vehicle is being sold, AS-IS,WHERE IS.

Even though the truck runs and drives fine, I would plan on trailering it home if you are out of town.

$500.00 deposit will be required within 24 hours of auction close. I will accept PayPal or cash, at time of pickup for the balance.

Bidder's with zero, or negative feedback, please contact me before bidding.

Thanks for Looking, and Happy Bidding!!!

C7 Corvette makes inaugural ad appearance in Chevy's first spot with new slogan

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" tagline has finally been run into the ground, replaced with the Bowtie brand's "Find New Roads" slogan that's part of parent General Motors' plan to unify its everyday brand's marketing efforts worldwide. The new Chevrolet campaign was ushered in on prime time last night during the Grammy Awards on CBS, and the first spot, a 90-second full-line ad, also marks the first appearance of the 2014 Corvette Stingray in a commercial.
Being a full-line ad, the commercial is composed of vignettes centered on different vehicles in the brand's lineup. The all-new 2014 Impala also makes its first commercial appearance in dapper fashion, and time is spent on a skateboarding Sonic and a bouquet of brightly colored Spark hatchbacks driven by fashionable women. The ad starts and ends with Chevy's green halo car, the Volt, along with a young girl with her robotic dog (yes, really).
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" campaign got off to a rocky start in the fall of 2010, but it did last for a couple of years with some tweaks. This new one, "Find New Roads" seems more intent on drawing new customers into the fold than the outgoing tagline, which seemed to play more toward the brand faithful. It admittedly reminds us more than a little the short-lived "Find Your Own Road" Saab motto (which, we note, was conceived while the Swedish brand was under GM's control), but no matter, we still think it's got more long-term potential than "Runs Deep."

Race Recap: 2013 Twelve Hours of Sebring, cakewalk up front, grindfest out back [w/spoilers]

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 09:33:00 EST

This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
