This is a 1968 Chevy C/10. All original as far as I can tell. 327-4bbl, with a 4 speed /granny low. Truck did not come with power steering, but I just bought a conversion from a 1971 C/10 with power steering. I have not installed the parts yet. I just repaired the fuel system. It was getting clogged, and not running right. I changed the fuel tank, flushed the steel (frame) line, replaced all rubber sections of hose, added an in-line fuel filter before the fuel pump, added a new fuel pump, added an in-line filter after the fuel pump, and replaced the fuel filter in the carb. Now it runs fine, and hasn't given me any problems yet. It has a brand new starter, but it needs to be shimmed. It was grinding a little when I started it, so I shimmed it up a bit, and it helped but there is still a slight whining. I just replaced the heater core which was leaking, and also added a new heater control assembly which is all hooked up, but I haven't got the fan working yet. I have no power to the blower motor. I ran out of time to work on it for now, so that is how it is being listed. 

The truck has a bit of rust through in a few places in the interior floor, also the kick panels, and the rockers have some rust. I have seen a lot worse than this. The good thing about this truck is the front fenders, both doors, and the box appear to be rust free. It is a custom cab with the dash intact. windows go up, and down, but need new weather stripping throughout. I put a new turn signal switch I it so now the head lights, tail lights, brake lights, turn signals are all working, but the side markers do not, and the front passenger side signal light lights up when the brake is applied. I was going to replace all the wiring if I kept the truck, but I have too many projects, and need to sell this so I can use the money towards the purchase of a dependable auto that is not a project.

 

The stock radio is in place, and I can hear the sound through the speakers when radio is turned on, but the antenna is broke so I can't tune in any stations. I would bet that it works, just don't know for sure. This truck could be driven as is, locally while the little issues it has are addressed, but it is still a project. I would not depend on it to get me 300 miles down the road and back just yet, but if you stay close to home until all the issues are resolved you should be fine. The truck runs good, smokes just a little at start-up, but doesn't knock, and runs smooth. I drive it to work all the time. The truck just sat for years down the street, and now I know why I never saw it driving around. It had about a dozen little problems when I got it, but I have it running, and dependable enough that it can be used locally while you work on it. It has a nice set of 6-lug slotted mag wheels 15X8 rear and 15X7 front, and a brand new set of BFG Radial T/A's. I also have a set of white spoke wheels mounted on Wild Country tires.

 

Winning bidder is responsible for transport of vehicle. A non-refundable deposit of $500 is due within 72 hours of the auctions end. Winning bidder can make transport arrangements, and I will accept the balance in cash only at the time the shipper picks up vehicle. I will accept PayPal for the deposit, and the balance, or PayPal for the deposit, and cash when shipper arrives for pick-up.

No checks at all!!!

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.

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

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.

Watch this creative way to pull a truck's engine

Fri, 08 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.
For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.
