I have a slick 1963 Chevy Pickup for sale. Restoration cost 20k. The truck is maroon in color, looks awesome! Everywhere I go in the truck people stop and stare. The truck has a 327 under the hood (lots of chrome), 350 transmission, all leather custom interior, tilt bed, wood paneling along the bed, new shocks , new springs, new battery, all gauges work except speedometer and shows 39 miles on it, has cd player, recently installed exhaust pipes. I bought the truck from a guy who bought it from the original owner who spent over 20K on this truck. I have not done anything to the truck, what you see is what you get. Looks like someone fix the truck from the frame up, as you can see on the pics the entire frame has been primed and painted. Lots done to this truck, runs and drives great. Has a few chips on the paint here and there but nothing major. Rims have a bit of corrosion on them, not a lot though. Wood in bed is not treated and shows wear and cracking, may have to be replaced. Tilt bed works fine with switch behind driver seat. Lots of new parts. Wood railing comes off very easily if it is not your style. Has disc brakes in front and drums in the back. Any questions please feel free to ask, I will answer as best I can since I bought the truck like it sits. The truck is located in Memphis TN and buyer is responsible for shipping costs.

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.

At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
Ever since General Motors confirmed plans to produce a diesel-powered Cruze back in 2011, we've been eagerly awaiting its arrival. And as part of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet has pulled back the cover on its oil-burning compact sedan, set to go on sale in the near future with a starting price of $25,695, not including $810 for destination.

The heart and soul of the Cruze TD (that's its official name) is a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline four-cylinder engine rated at 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated solely to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine also has an overboost function that will increase torque to 280 lb-ft for up to ten seconds. The full brace of official specs haven't been released, but GM tells us that highway fuel economy will come in at 42 miles per gallon. If that number sounds familiar, it's because the Volkswagen Jetta TDI has the exact same rating. Unlike the Jetta, however, the Cruze TD can run on B20 biodiesel, where as the Volkswagen can only accept B5.
Model-specific changes to this 2014 Cruze TD include an aero kit and unique 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's a full leather interior, and Chevrolet will provide two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance, not to mention a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
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.
