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

General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.

According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.
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.
Supercharged, 6.2-liter V8? Check. Seven-speed manual? Check. Obsession with weight? Check.
What did you expect when Chevrolet said it was bringing a new Corvette variant to the 2014 New York Auto Show? Maybe a sticker and trim package, like the C6 Corvette Grand Sport or a tie-in deal like the Black Widow car from Chicago? On the opposite end, maybe there was an even more hardcore Z06 waiting in the wings. Who knew?
