This 1970 Chevrolet C10 has been garaged for the last 8 years. The paint was done just before that, as well as the interior. Everything functions as it should and the truck drives nicely. The paint job is a fairly good one except for occasional runs in the clear near the bottom and it needs repair to the driver's side cab corner. There are various small flaws that require very close inspection to see. This pickup is not a show truck & isn't intended to be. It's for driving and enjoying. I was going to repair the flaws on the lower part of the body and have the local Line-X shop paint their tough bed liner material from the lower body line down around the bottom of the sheet metal, but decided to leave it be for the next owner to decide what to do with. Not everybody likes the look of the lower parts being "armor plated" (4x4's look good to me with it & it's practical), so it remains as-is. The engine is a 350 and the transmission is a TH350. The exhaust is good, & the truck doesn't need anything on the mechanical side. It does need an antenna and if you'd like side mirrors you'll have to add them. If you'd like to arrange for an inspection prior to bidding, I'd encourage you to do so for your own peace of mind. I've taken pictures of those areas where these pickups are known to have problems and have made the best attempt I can to fairly represent this pickup. Feel free to message with any questions and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks!

General Motors must be pretty pleased with sales of its two newest pickups, the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado, as it's announced price hikes for both models, as part of a planned price tweak.
Mon, 29 Apr 2013 10:15:00 EST
Prices will be bumped by as much as $1,500, although weirdly, they'll be offset by as much as $1,500 in cash-back offers through the end of October. Fox Business reports that GM spokesman Jim Cain said of the price hike, "With the sell down of the '13 models nearly complete, this price adjustment was planned and is a normal part of business."
The move, as Fox is quick to point out, is an interesting one, as sales of the twin pickups struggled last month relative to the Ford F-Series, while both of GM's crosstown competitors have been aggressively undercutting Silverado and Sierra prices. The F-150 starts at $24,070 and the Ram 1500 comes in at $23,600, not counting any cash on the hood. A base Silverado, meanwhile, retails at $25,575.
Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.

As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.
