Very reliable great running 1969 Chevrolet C10 short bed pickup with a 350 SBC V8 engine and 350 turbo automatic transmission.
I have just had the engine tuned up with new plugs, wires, & rotor button.(HEI electronic ignition) I also recently changed the oil and installed a new battery. THIS TRUCK DOESN'T LEAK ANY FLUIDS!! The engine has a good rough idle cam with headers and dual exhaust that sounds great.(see video link) The 350 turbo transmission shifts through all the gears smoothly. And despite having manual steering and brakes the truck stops and steers easily. All brake, signals, and head lights work.
The body of the truck is very solid and straight as you can see in the pics. There is only the one rust through spot below the drivers side door pictured below that could be easily fixed if you wanted to paint the truck. Other than that the body and floor is solid any other rust seen on the is merely surface rust. It rides on 15" steel wheels with chevy bow tie dog dish style hub caps and 235/75 tires with about 85% of the tread left on them.
The truck has been lowered about 3" which gives a real nice stance and it gets lots of attention and thumbs up when driving around town, but its not so low that it can't still be used as a truck.
It is not a perfect show truck, but is a very nice, reliable turn key ride that needs nothing. It would make a great Shop truck, Hot Rod, Rat Rod, or drive it just as it is.
I reserve the right to end the auction early as the truck is also for sale locally. Email or call me with any questions or offers you have. Jeremy 864-940-4576 Thanks 4 looking...

It seems to be commonplace that when a new Corvette is in development, rumors swirl about a possible mid-engine layout. As is the case of Chevy's most recent C7 Corvette, these rumors never pan out.
In any case, the idea for a 'Vette with an engine mounted behind the driver can probably all be traced back to a single car, the 1964 XP-819 prototype. Built as an "engineering exercise" back in 1964, the prototype was designed with a rear-mounted engine. History tells us that the idea of a rear-engine Corvette fizzled, and the XP-819 was eventually cut up into pieces and stored at a shop in Daytona Beach, FL.
After sitting for untold years, a restoration project started on the car, and while it isn't yet fully completed, the current owner of the car, Mid America Motorworks, will have the car on display at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance as a "driveable chassis" with hopes of having a fully completed car ready to bring to next year's show.
UPDATE: The trucks have been revealed. Click here for all of the official details.
As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.
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.
