This is a 1969 Chevy C10 two wheel drive long bed truck. It is the typical truck of this era, has some rust, some mechanical issues, a few cosmetic flaws and lots of character and potential. It is NOT a numbers matching show truck, a concours restoration or a time capsule unmolested truck. it is a good old work/shop truck with a good base to start with or just keep it like it is and drive the wheels off of it. It does have it's good points as well as bad, I will try to cover both sides as best as I can.

First, mechanical condition.. It is a small block Chevy, not really sure what size. It starts right up, idles fine and pulls down the road. It has been converted to HEI ignition and should really have a new set of spark plug wires, the ones on it are pretty shabby. It has a Holley 600 carburetor on a factory intake. Has shiney valve covers and air cleaner but they have seen better days. Cast iron exhaust manifolds with dual exhaust. It is a three speed manual transmission , 3OTT (three on the tree). If you know these old trucks you know what is coming next, the shifter linkage needs adjusting. It drives and shifts but you have to know the "touch". To go to second, you almost slide up into reverse, then back down and up n over into second. The shift collar has been broken at one time and looks like it was JB Welded back together. Again, nothing major but a common problem with these old trucks and would really need to be fixed before doing a lot of everyday driving. The truck was an air coditioned model but the a/c components are long gone. Power steering works good and brakes stop like they should. Lights burn, wipers wipe.

Next, cosmetic condition. It has rust, has had some rust repaired and still needs body work. Chrome front and rear bumpers, pretty nice grille and has had the passenger fender replaced at one time, although it has a dent in it now. Tailgate has a big dent along the top but still functons as it should and bed is in real good shape. Rockers are rusty, inner front fenders are like they all are,, rusty. The good point is the area above the windshield does not appear to be rusted out like a lot of these trucks do. Doors open and close, passenger side outside door handle button is broken but you can still open the door with it. Paint job looks like a home shop effort but color is good. It is popping off in some spots. Interior needs a drivers side door panel.

I know i was pretty rough on the truck but had rather talk it down than mislead anyone about it. Does it need work, oh yeah. Would it be a good drive it while you work on it truck, oh yeah. Would I take off to either coast in it,, oh no, no way. All in all, it is just a good old truck that could make you a good shop truck, work truck or with effort and money a really nice cruiser. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask as I am sure I missed some things. We are flexible enough that we can work with your shipper if at all possible. Thanks and good luck.

GM won't pay owners of recalled cars for lost value

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:30:00 EST

Kenneth Feinberg, the man in charge of the General Motors compensation fund dealing with the its widespread ignition switch woes, has issued an informal, two-letter response to the plaintiffs in more than 70 lawsuits seeking redress for lost resale value of their Cobalts: "No." The cases were recently combined into one, but Feinberg told The Detroit News that the fund will deal "only with death and physical injury claims," and that "perceived diminished value" will get no consideration.
ALG, the firm specializing in establishing residual values, determined that Cobalt owners had lost $300 compared to the segment competition and doesn't envision any long-term effects from the recall situation. Feinberg's statement comes in advance of public details on how the compensation fund will work and adheres to GM's long-held position on the matter. The company has already asked a judge to throw out such suits using the pre-bankruptcy defense, even as it stopped using that defense in cases of injury and death.
With plenty of potential gain from the GM suit, however, don't expect the plaintiffs to give up yet. When Toyota was sued for the same reason during the unintended acceleration debacle, it eventually settled the case for between $1 billion and $1.4 billion just to get it over with. Since the 85 law firms involved in the Toyota litigation took home more than $250 million of that total, we shouldn't expect the attorneys to give up on a GM payout, either.

Chevrolet Malibu gets across-the-board price cuts, hopes to dig out of slump

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 16:33:00 EST

To say that things aren't going well for the newly redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is a pretty sizable understatement. Reports have been swirling about the Malibu getting an emergency design refresh, less than a year after its introduction, as well as having its production at the Fairfax Assembly Plant halted twice already this year for excessive inventory. Now, Motor Trend is reporting that the midsize sedan will be receiving price drops across the board ranging from $300 on a number of models up to $770 on the 1LT trim; offsetting some of MSRP drop, though, the destination charge has increased from $760 to $810.
Without destination, the entry-level Malibu LS now starts at $21,995, which is still about $300 more than a Honda Accord and about $300 less than the segment's top-selling Toyota Camry. This new pricing also drops the price of the Eco, 2LT and 3LT trims by $300. The LTZ trim has dropped by $415, meaning that the Malibu's top dog now starts at just under $30,000, excluding destination.
Here are the new starting prices for all eight of the Malibu trim levels compared to the previous prices for the 2013 model year (including destination):

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.
