Drive Type: manual
Williamston, South Carolina, United States
Up for auction is this beautiful all original 1961 Chevrolet Apache 10 pickup truck. A true barn find & she is in great shape!. These trucks are very rare and getting harder and harder to come by, especially in this condition. It is a really clean straight truck without a bunch of dents and dings like many of these old farm trucks have. Also, it has a very clean interior with no rips or tears in the seat. The paint still takes wax and shines up well, as you can see in the photos. I don't see any body work in this truck and only a couple minor rust spots. One in the passenger door about the size of a quarter, and a small section just under the bowtie on the hood.(see pics)
The truck not only looks good it runs, drives, and stops just as it should. We just installed a new set of BF Goodrich tires and did a full tune up which includes the following:
-New brake pads & wheel cylinders
-New Master Cylinder
-New points, cap & rotor button
-New plugs & plug wires
-Changed all fluids engine oil, transmission, & rear end which we also replaced all the seals on as well
Everything on this truck Works!! lights, signals, gauges, dash lights, even right down to the horn. She is completely road worthy ready to drive anywhere. It was just taken on a road trip to the Rod Run in TN 400+ miles roundtrip with no problems. I have included a video link of the truck starting and running so you can see & here it for yourself:

As you can see in the pics & video this is a turn key truck that needs nothing, but a new owner. Please email or call me with any questions you may have. Jeremy 864-940-4576

So if you want it please don't wait until the last minute to bid as you may not get that chance. $500 non negotionable, non refundable deposit due within 24 hours of auction close. Thanks 4 looking and good luck!
With all of the attention given to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray lately, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's already well along in production, yet tooling up for the new C7 has only just begun. In fact, production of the outgoing C6 generation in Bowling Green, Kentucky just halted on Thursday.
As the C6 has aged, production numbers have predictably ebbed along with demand, but this year, the addition of the 427 and 60th anniversary models resulted in an uptick in vehicles built - this, despite a model year shortened by around 25 percent to accomodate the new model changeover. The final C6 Corvette ever, No. 13,466 built this year, was a white 427 Convertible destined for the General Motors Heritage Center museum. The car's 7.0-liter V8 heart was assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself.
In total, Bowling Green pushed out 215,100 C6 Corvettes over nine years. If you're still a C6 fan at heart and are hoping to get a good deal on a phase-out model, step lively - Chevrolet reportedly had about 6,100 unsold units, which Autoweek suggests is good for around five and a half months of supply at the model's current sales rates. Given that demand will likely slacken even further as the C7 draws closer, that should be a big enough stockpile to keep dealers satisfied until 2014 Stingrays begin showing up on their forecourts in December.
When it comes to technology used in racecars, we generally expect it to trickle down to production cars, not the other way around. Well, Pratt & Miller has developed a new rear-facing radar that operates in a similar fashion to what we're used to in modern blind spot detection systems, only it is also capable of tracking cars as they approach and relaying vital information to the driver via a large display screen.
The innovative radar system debuted at last weekend's 12 Hours of Sebring for Corvette Racing, and this system makes perfect sense for endurance races like this since the cars sometimes have to drive through the night and in poor weather conditions.
The radar can detect cars even with poor visibility, and uses easy-to-distinguish symbols for the driver to identify.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
