It has a carburetor, not fuel injection. The windows are manual as are the door locks. It is just an old truck."

This is a 1972 Chevrolet C10 truck. It is a Custom 10 series. The truck would be a great shop truck, drive while you restore or just a cool old everyday driver. The truck is still in the name of the buyer from back in March of 72. Yes, that would make it a one owner. The odometer shows 04,203. We are, by no means, trying to pass this truck off as only having 4,000 original miles. Common sense would make it 104,000 miles.

The truck has a good running small block, we assume it is a 350, with factory cast iron exhaust manifolds. It has a cast iron intake manifold as well but has had a Holley 600 carburetor installed. Carb works great on the stock small block, really responsive. It has also been upgraded to a later model HEI distributor so there are no issues with points and condenser. Has a new fuel pump and power steering pump. The fan shroud is busted, but most of them this old are. A new one is readily available through several aftermarket suppliers. The truck runs down the road like it should, shifts out , rides and drives like all these old trucks do.

A few issues, nothing major, to cover before we go on. The heater core leaks, again, available at any local parts store. There is no radio but it has not been cut out for an aftermarket cd player. The dome light works, is missing the lens. Seat cover is torn, but is still on the seat. That is the small odds and ends.

Now for the bigger things. It does not have a tailgate. The hinges are there, just not a tailgate. It has typical rust on the cab corners and rocker panels. There is a strip of rust through on the bed floor. The grill is bent up. The hood has a wad of body filler. The fenders have bumps and bruises, as do the bedsides. It has been used as a truck during its life and it does show wear and tear, but it is still all there and has not been cobbled up.

The good news. The doors open and close freely. It has the good outside mirrors, they look to be original. The doors do NOT have those awful speaker holes cut into them. The lights and wipers work. The sunvisos are still there. There is NO rust above the windshield where the visors attatch. I know you saw the cool era correct wooden steering wheel and the owner,, ?,, fabbed wooden arm rests.

The truck has a new, yes new, set of 10 inch wide white spokes with BF Goodrich tires. The brakes stop the truck like they should. It steers effortlessly like these trucks do. It is just a cool old truck.

Does it have some wear and tear,, yes. Is it a neat old truck that you could drive as is, drive while you restore or make a personalized shop truck, oh yeah. The cool thing about these old trucks is, everybody has parts for them. Tell you what, do the buy it now and I will include another hood (in much better shape, just not the one that came with this truck) and a good driver quality grill (again, in much better shape, just not the one that came with this truck). Thanks and good luck.

Chevy Corvette Stingray "colorizer" lets you chase the rainbow

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 16:29:00 EST

After you've convinced your better half to let you buy a new Corvette, then comes the hard part... actually figuring out which 'Vette you want. While Chevrolet has yet to release the official configurator for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, it did give us something else to kill some time playing around with.
The C7 Corvette "colorizer" recently went online, and it lets you look at the car in all of its available colors and wheel options from four different angles so that when this car does go on sale, you know exactly which one you want. It includes the Corvette's full pallet of colors including Torch Red, Laguna Blue and the hue you see above, Velocity Yellow. Toss in the black wheels, and we're sold. If you have some time this afternoon, be sure to check it out the Corvette colorizer for yourself, and even if you don't have the time, we've put together a gallery with all of the possible color combinations.

Chevy Sonic shreds like a skateboard

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 19:14:00 EST

Despite the fact that the 2013 Chevy Sonic is a fun, plucky little thing - especially in ever-so-slightly hotter RS guise - it is not, in fact, a skateboard. But don't tell that to rapper Theophilus London.
In General Motors' latest spot for the Chevrolet compact, London needs to make a quick run to the store for some milk. And even though, once again, the Sonic is not a skateboard, it ollies, pops and gets air because, you know, it's just so much fun to throw around.
If this video looks familiar to you, it's because this is the full ad that we first got a preview of in Chevy's longer, full-line spot, where the brand's "Find New Roads" tagline was introduced. Scroll down to see this dedicated Sonic spot, along with the older ad, and remember, the Sonic is still - still - not a skateboard.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
