We bought this truck while we were aggrivated with our own personal truck while it was getting some upgrades done. We thought we would just kick around in this one and put ours off to the side. Well, ours is finished and we are back to liking it again, so this one has to go.

It is a 1971 Chevrolet C10. It has a small block, not going to say it is a 350 as we have not ran any block numbers, but we think it is. The engine has had a few upgrades. It has a fairly new Edelbrock 600 cfm Performer carburetor, has been converted to HEI ignition, new spark plug wires, newer alternator and of course,, headers. The motor starts, runs and pulls the truck down the road just fine. It does not run hot and holds good oil pressure

The trans is a 3 speed manual that has been converted over to floor shift. Linkage is good and tight, shifts fine. The truck has power steering and manual disc brakes. It steers and stops just as it should.

The body has a few dents and boo boo's here and there, it is 42 years old you know. It needs a windshield, there is a dent in the roof, the right front fender is rusted out underneath the battery tray like they all do. The area above the windshield is not rusted out like so many of them we come across.

Tires are in pretty good shape. They are radials and mounted on rally wheels that are fully dressed with caps and rings. Front bumper has a dent, back bumper is gone and the bed floor is replaced with steel diamond tread. Tailgate functions, doors open and close good. It does have a trailer hitch.. Turn signal switch is bad, i have a new one I will include, just haven't taken the time to replace it.

All in all, this is a good drive while you restore or just drive as it is. It would be a great shop truck or an everyday beater. It isn't fancy, just an old truck that is not as good as some but better than most of it's age we come across.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

Pushing Back: GM expanding Chevrolet into Korea, Daewoo out

Chevrolet Camaro goes to South Korea - Click above for high-res image
General Motors decided several years ago to begin heavily promoting Chevrolet as its global mainstream brand even in markets where its existing brands like Opel and Daewoo were a dominant force. Today, at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, GM Daewoo president Mike Arcamone announced that the Camaro would lead the way in GM's efforts to market Chevrolet in South Korea.
For now at least Chevrolet and Daewoo-branded vehicles will coexist in the Korean market. However, while we were in China last week GM officials told us that the Daewoo brand, which has been somewhat tainted by past quality issues, would eventually be phased out in favor of Chevrolet. When the new Aveo launches next year it will likely be badged as a Chevrolet even though GM Daewoo is in charge of engineering the car.

More Corvette Stingray Factoids: Vanishing panel gaps and 26-mpg LT1

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 17:00:00 EST

During January's Detroit Auto Show, we managed a longer than expected wandering tag-team interview with C7 Corvette chief engineering exec Tadge Juechter (pictured above), and LT1 engine boss Jordan Lee (pictured below). They are, quite honestly, two of the very nicest bigshot lads to ever walk the engineering corridors of an American manufacturer. Both are enthralled by what they're doing for a day job. So are we.
We've followed the pre-sale anticipation for the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray like an Oreck vacuum yanking every speck of dirt from a well-trampled carpet. Everything is reportable and contains a grain of further knowledge about this dramatically important and cheered-for car, as it continues to be pressured into representing all that is superior about the American dream. The Corvette wears one heavy cloak.
So, most of what was talked about has been expertly reported already right here on Autoblog. But, looking through our notes again, both Jeuchter and Lee added facts to the buzzing mix.
