1972 Chevy K10 4x4 frame off restored pickup completed three weeks ago with 350 test/tune miles on it. This truck
was built for a family member to be a daily driving show quality vehicle. This truck was spared no expense, dream
vehicle intended to keep for many years, unforeseen circumstances force sale. Iíve restored 3 dozen 67-72 Chevy
& GMC trucks, this is the best one Iíve done, this truck was the best core to start with Iíve seen. Iíll
briefly describe the major points below, more detail in the video. I live in the prime region for rust free trucks,
I found this truck in the high desert of eastern Oregon, 1 family owned. This truck blew its original motor in
1981 with 36k original miles, was parked in a garage until I bought it in 2014. Not one pin hole of rot in this
entire truck prior to restoration, all metal is original to truck. This is a factory 1972 4x4 pickup. Everything is
new or refurbished, our shop cost was $56,800 on this build, paying any shop retail would be quite a bit more, near
impossible to find a 100% rust and accident free 72 4x4 Chevy truck to begin with. Not too many 4x4 pickups built
like this, costs quite a bit more than a 2wd to build. Save money and time, buy this truck and be driving it within
a few days
Small Block Chevy balanced 383 stroker. Complete SCAT bottom end, forged everything, 1 piece LT1 block, Edelbrock
Performer RPM aluminum heads, hydraulic roller cam and rockers (no constant adjustment with hydraulic), aluminum
intake, Edelbrock 4 barrel electric choke carburetor, stainless headers, HEI electronic distributor, all ARP
fasteners, electric fuel pump. Built to run on 91/92 premium fuel, motor is 450 HP 500 FT TQ with this carburetor.
We opted for the Edelbrock for ease of use, this motor can get close to 500 HP with a performance Holley, but less
reliable. This is a $9400 motor with the best of the best name brand parts, everything new. The motor was broke in
prior to installation. Dual exhaust with Flowmaster 50 series mufflers (great sound without being obnoxious).
Oversize 4 core radiator with dual electric adjustable fans on custom made shroud. Rebuilt TH-350 automatic
transmission with a shift kit and hole-shot TQ converter set up perfect for this 4x4. Custom strengthened and
balanced drive lines, rebuilt gear driven bullet proof 205 transfer case. Front and rear axles have 4340 chromoly
axle shafts, they have Richmond 4.11 gears, both axles have Richmond limited slip lockers, they are the street
friendly versions, put the power to it in snow or mud and you have 4 wheel posi. Front axle has power disc brakes,
Warn hubs, 6 in lift kit on the front and a 4 in on the back with proper steering geometry, stabilizer and extended
stainless brake lines. Most lifts have a rake to them, we engineered this lift to be level as we think it looks
much better. Rebuilt power steering (1 finger turn). 35/13.5./15 Toyo Mud Terrain tires on 10 in wide aluminum
wheels with full size spare. All Chevy front axles track wider than the rear, the look is terrible, so we evened up
the rear with wheel spacers so the tires are aligned correctly. We gave this truck incredible attention to all the
little details. Under power when 1st shifts to 2nd it will bark these 35ís. Synthetic fluids in everything. We
built the truck to handle the power and torque of this motor.
All original metal/panels/frame it was born with. 100% rot free to begin with, time capsule as the motor let go in
1981, sat garaged until I bought in 2014. Everything completely disassembled and painted with high quality base
coat clear coat in Ice Cream White (color code taped inside glove box). Wet sanded for a beautiful smooth finish.
Best drip rails Iíve ever seen on a 67-72 truck. We Linexed under the hood, inner fenders, fender wells, bed,
under bed, under cab and the front lip of the bed that typically gets rock chips. Linex is great for sound
deadening, heat and chip protection. The cab and inner doors are insulated for sound and heat protection. The frame
is coated semi-gloss with POR-15. The reproduction parts came from LMC truck which are the most expensive, but best
in quality. Rather than list every new part, Iíll just say itís all new. Uncut radio dash, we installed a new
IPOD ready stereo that looks vintage, with 4 quality speakers (we did not cut up the doors) 2 speakers under dash,
2 speakers behind the seats hard mounted. We removed the in cab fuel tank and installed an aftermarket tank under
the bed. We did not do the eye sore 67-72 fuel door install that is common, but custom welded in a clean hatch.
Autometer tachometer mounted inside the gauge cluster. Notice you donít see wires or hoses going everywhere,
extensive time spent looming and hiding all of it that we could for that clean look. We installed large side
mirrors so we can actually use them, the little sport mirrors are near worthless. All these upgrades come from
experienced people whom have owned and built dozens of these trucks, weíve found out over trial and error what
does and doesnít work.
This truck was a restorerís dream come true at the start. The end result is so much better with a start like
this, there was no body damage or rust, so very little body work was needed. There is no way anyone could build a
67-72 truck to this level to sell, the cost exceeds the value, take advantage of this situation, this is a brand
new restoration with test/tune miles on it only. There is a big difference between a 15 year old restoration and a
brand new one that may not show up in pics, but surely do in person.

Indian tuner turns Chevy Optra into Mustang 'Eleanor' replica

Fri, 03 Aug 2012 08:28:00 EST

If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.
The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.

Chevrolet Malibu gets across-the-board price cuts, hopes to dig out of slump

Mon, 11 Feb 2013 16:33:00 EST

To say that things aren't going well for the newly redesigned 2013 Chevrolet Malibu is a pretty sizable understatement. Reports have been swirling about the Malibu getting an emergency design refresh, less than a year after its introduction, as well as having its production at the Fairfax Assembly Plant halted twice already this year for excessive inventory. Now, Motor Trend is reporting that the midsize sedan will be receiving price drops across the board ranging from $300 on a number of models up to $770 on the 1LT trim; offsetting some of MSRP drop, though, the destination charge has increased from $760 to $810.
Without destination, the entry-level Malibu LS now starts at $21,995, which is still about $300 more than a Honda Accord and about $300 less than the segment's top-selling Toyota Camry. This new pricing also drops the price of the Eco, 2LT and 3LT trims by $300. The LTZ trim has dropped by $415, meaning that the Malibu's top dog now starts at just under $30,000, excluding destination.
Here are the new starting prices for all eight of the Malibu trim levels compared to the previous prices for the 2013 model year (including destination):
