1968 GMC 1500 series truck. Short wide bed. Straight 6 cylinder, 250 engine with three on the tree transmission. Runs and drives great.
This is a fun little truck. It does have its issues, just like all of them do, but they are nothing that keep it from being a cool little driver. It starts, runs, steers and stops as it should. It does ride a little rough, it has been lowered and GMC trucks are leaf sprung, they don't ride as well as Chevy C10 trucks do with the coil spring set up in the rear. The little 250 just putts down the road with no problems. It will never win any speed contests but the whole time you are driving it, you have a big grin on your face. The transmission shifts smoothly, no slop or binding on the linkage. It is unmolested under the hood. The factory air cleaner is intact with all hoses still attatched. Points type distributor fires right up and does not miss a beat.
The interior is all there, of course one of the previous owners hacked a hole in the dash for a cd player but there is a cover panel over it. The seat is just that, a seat. it will need recovering and a little padding replaced. Seatbelts are intact. Windows roll up and down, wipers, turn signals, headlights,, even the horn, they all work. It does need a windshiled. There is a small rust through on the drivers floorboard near the door opening. Nothing major.
Overall, the body is in good shape. It has had a bedside replaced at one time. The tailgate is intact, opens and shuts as it should. Bed floor is in real nice condition. There is a nasty looking dent behind the drivers door. It does not affect the door opening and closing but would really look better if it were fixed. The cab supports are good, the area above windshield is good, the doors are a lot better than most of these old trucks.
We went for the shop truck look with the red painted wheels. The tires are driver condition, I would want new ones if I were going to be driving this truck all the time and for any long trips. Please do not classify this truck as a Rat Rod,, it has the right grille, seats floorboards and dash. It is just a cool old hot rod style truck.
Is it a show truck? No. Is it loaded with luxury options and power accessories? No. Is it a cool old truck you can afford and drive while you fix or change the things you want? EXACTLY... Manual steering, manual drums, hand crank windows,, this is a real truck. You can buy this, throw your shop logo on it and have a neat little parts chaser.

2013 Detroit Auto Show
Chevrolet has thrown down the next hand in the pickup truck poker wars and revealed at least a couple of potential aces - depending on which numbers matter most to you. The 2014 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 335 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). Chevy says the Silverado also stands atop the fuel economy charts when comparing any competitor with a V8 engine - and some competitors with V6 engines. The two-wheel drive model returns 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined in two-wheel drive guise and 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined as a four-wheel drive.

For context around those numbers, the most fuel efficient V8-powered 2013 Ford F-150 pickups lose about two mpg in every metric compared to the Silverado, the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost returning 16 city, 18 highway and 22 combined in two-wheel drive. However, that EcoBoost does have 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. You can get a Ram 1500 with a 3.6-liter V6 that gets 25 mpg highway, but it has 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Ram with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and its 395 hp and 407 lb-ft drops one mpg in every category to the Silverado. Its tow rating is 200 pounds beyond its nearest competitor, the F-150 with the Max Trailer Tow Package.
Elsewhere, the new Silverado gets a quieter cab with a redesigned interior, a new bed with improved load-management possibilities, disc brakes all around, tweaked steering and suspension, along with free standard scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles.
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.
