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.
When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.
The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.
General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.
We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.
Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.
