Nice Original 1978 Chevy Silverado Short Box Stepside 4x4. This is a California Truck I bought 3 years ago. The previous owners claim the miles are original, but I have no documentation to support that, but it appears to be. The only reason I am selling is that I need the room and money to buy my son a car for high school.
400 small block (original)
Nice body and paint a couple dings and a few chips(minor details, it really shines up good)
No rust and no bondo that I can tell (it is very straight and very solid)
Nice original wood in bed (previous owner left a slide in camper on it so it stayed protected)
It has a cracked grille and windshield (common for the antenna windshield)
Seat has some rips and the passenger window crank broke off right at the time of listing(cheap to replace)
This truck runs like a top and always starts right up. It is fun to drive and is snappy with 373 geared rearend.
4 wheel drive works great! It has always been kept in my heated shop and never driven in the winter.
I will not accept "0" feedback bidders unless they have contacted me.
I urge you to come and inspect this vehicle (just email,text or call to set a time to see it)
This truck is sold as is where is and is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction early at any time.
Reserve is low for this caliber of truck.
Payment: Down payment of $500.00 via PayPal within 48 hrs of auction close. Balance to be paid within 7 days of auctions close. Payment to be cash, cashiers check or bank to bank wire

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.

At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.

Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...
Quentin Tarantino fans will likely remember Vincent Vega's cherry 1964 Chevrolet Malibu Convertible in Pulp Fiction. In a movie drenched in automotive references, the Malibu is very nearly a character in and of itself, and it serves as the subject of Vega's soliloquy about the kind of man who vandalizes another's automobile. It also happened to be Tarantino's personal car when the film was shot, and was apparently stolen shortly after production wrapped. Now police have located the car some 19 years later.
As it turns out, the thieves cloned the vehicle identification number from another '64 Malibu and had the car registered under the new digits. It was then sold to an unsuspecting buyer. Police happened upon the duplicate VINs while investigating another potential theft. Right now, it's unclear whether Tarantino has taken possession of the Chevrolet, if it has remained in the possession of the fraud victim, or whether it's caught somewhere in the gears of justice. Either way, you can catch Vega's memorable thoughts on the car keying in the Pulp Fiction clip below. But consider yourself warned: the video contains explicit language as Not Safe For Work as it comes.
