1971 Gmc C1500 Sbc Th 350 Trans P/s P/b Shop Truck Drive While Restore on 2040-cars
Jackson, Missouri, United States
Looking for an inexpensive, low optioned, get in and go truck? This may be the one for you.
This is a 1971 GMC 1500 series 1/2 ton, two wheel drive pick up truck. It is a small block Chevy 350 V8 with the reliable TH350 automatic transmission. It is a pretty no-frills truck, it has power sterring and power brakes, about all you really need as far as options on these trucks.
The 350 engine has an aftermarket carburetor, Edelbrock I think, headers and later model HEI ignition system. Starts right up and runs down the road with no issues. It does have a typical annoying header gasket leak but don't they all. The coolant system is in good working condition and the engine does not smoke or rattle. The power steering pump does groan some when doing a hard turn. The transmission shifts out like it should going down the road, no issues there.
The interior has seen better days but is still all there. The windshield is cracked, of course. Wipers and lights work. It has an aftermarket CD player of some sort, not really my area. The steering wheel is cracked.
The body shows the trucks age. The rocker panels need replaced, floors near rockers need work. It has a Chevrolet tailgate that opens and closes, the tailgate is rusted at the bottom, but it has a tailgate. Has a good rear work bumper. The passenger door has been replaced and the passenger fender is an aftermarket that never was painted and is showing surface rust. It has a chrome front bumper, not the best but it does have one. There does not appear to be any rust through on the interior part of the roof above the windshield.
The wheels are aftermarket Hurricane style, really popular in the 80's and are a matching set. It has good tires front and rear, two different brands, but still very good tires.
We started to throw a quick satin black paint job on it but decided to just let everyone see exactly what they were getting, no cover-ups. This is just a good old get in and drive truck. It is not fancy, it needs work, but it is a truck that you can use to work with. Not like you would worry about scratching the paint now is it? It would be a good shop truck, work truck or just something to beat and bang around in. Put that kid in it and turn him loose, if he tears it up, it is cheap to fix.
To make the deal even better, i will throw in a new set of rocker panels and a new pair of header gaskets for the winning bidder. Just trying to help. Thanks.

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.
Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.

Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?

It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.
It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.
No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.
