Drive Type: 2wd
Big Island, Virginia, United States
This truck came from an older gentleman who collected Chevy and GMC trucks. This was his driver truck. It was driven until 2012 before the gentleman became ill. The truck has a straight 6 with HEI ignition (no points), 3-speed on the column, manual steering and brakes. The truck runs great (it has a lot of power for a 6), the shifter shifts smoother than any other 3 on the tree I've ever driven. The motor may have had the short block rebuilt (the short block has been painted but the head hasn't), there are also new gaskets visible on the motor indicating the truck was kept up. The heat and defrost work, wipers work, has a CD radio, reverse lights work (one needs a bulb), turn signals work, parking brake works, BRAKES need a little work ( the pedal is soft, brakes feel like they need to be bled). This truck runs and drive great, I have been using it around the house hauling junk and brush. This is NOT a four-wheel drive truck.
The body has the usual rust for these years, but the truck is NOT falling apart and has a fairly straight body with not dings or dents. This will make a great shop truck, rat rod , or you could create your own "farm" truck race truck like on TV.
This truck is for sale locally, I reserve the right to stop the auction any time. Also I can deliver (within a 200 mile radius of Lynchburg Virginia) for an added fee, if your are interested in delivery email me you address and I can tell you what the charge would be.
Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.
There could hardly be more riding on the next-generation General Motors full-size pickup trucks, so the automaker has wisely made sure to have a selection of different models on hand at the Detroit Auto Show to show off. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra were both officially introduced last month at a stand-alone reveal, and now they'll be on display for the public to see in various body configurations and trim levels.
The Silverado LTZ Crew Cab and Sierra SLE Extended Cab are aimed at providing more of a high-end pickup experience, while the Silverado LT Z71 Extended Cab and Sierra SLT Z71 Crew Cab should have off-road fans scouting out their favorite trails. The crew cab trucks won't go into production until sometime during the second quarter of this year - with other bodystyles coming later in the year - but we have plenty of live images from Detroit for you to enjoy.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.
Opt for the 2.0-liter turbo and, while power holds steady at 259 hp, torque goes up by 14 percent to a striking 295 lb-ft (a figure Chevy calls best in the class). The final details include newly programmed transmission shift points and faster shifts, for better engaging and enjoying the added power.
Looks-wise, the grille's been reshaped to be more in line with the new Chevrolet look, a narrower upper grille hovering over a larger lower grille.
