I TRADED FOR THIS TRUCK RECENTLY BUT AM NOW MOVING AND WON'T HAVE THE SPACE FOR A 3RD VEHICLE - SO MUST SELL BEFORE MOVING.
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
THE PREVIOUS OWNER PUT A NEW RADIATOR IN (WITH COOLER), NEW WATER PUMP, NEW BILLET GRILLE ON THE FRONT, NEW IGNITION BARREL (APPARENTLY KEY GOT STUCK IN THE BARREL AND COULDN'T BE REMOVED), INSTALLED LARGE CHROME DUAL EXHAUST TIPS THAT COME OUT THE SIDES OF THE TRUCK JUST FORWARD OF THE REAR WHEELS, THERE'S A NEWER BLUE BENCH SEAT, NEWER BLUE HEADLINER. POWER WINDOWS / LOCKS WORK - GAUGES LOOK LIKE THEY WORK BUT HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED FULLY (THERE'S A GAUGE UNDER THE DASH WHICH ISN'T WIRED AND I'M NOT SURE WHAT IT'S FOR). THIS HAS DUAL GAS TANKS - BUT PREVIOUS OWNER ONLY USED RIGHT SIDE TANK.
400 TURBO TRANSMISSION JUST INSTALLED, AND I WILL GIVE BUYER THE OLD 400 TRANSMISSION (THIS WAS RECENTLY REBUILT - LOOKS CLEAN - BUT HAD AN ISSUE GOING INTO 2ND GEAR - HENCE THE OTHER TRANSMISSION BEING INSTALLED). TRUCK IS BY NO MEANS PERFECT, IT IS NO WHERE NEAR A SHOW TRUCK - IT WAS JUST BUILT TO LOOK GOOD AND BE NOTICED GOING DOWN THE ROAD (WHICH IT DOES - I STOPPED TO PUT GAS IN IT AND EVERYONE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT OR COMMENT HOW COOL IT IS)...THE BODY HAS A NUMBER OF SMALL DENTS, THE PAINT IS NOT PERFECT (LOOKS GOOD FROM A DISTANCE), CRUISE CONTROL / WIPERS NOT WORKING (DON'T KNOW IF THEY'RE NOT HOOKED UP OR DON'T WORK). NO AC - BUT CAN BE EASILY ADDED TO THESE OLDER TRUCKS. FAN SEEMS TO BLOW UNDER THE DASH (HAS COOLED TRUCK IN SUMMER). I WAS TOLD THE STARTER WIRING IS CLOSE TO THE HEADERS BY THE MECHANIC THAT PUT IN THE TRANSMISSION AND SHOULD BE MOVED AT SOME POINT (NOT SURE HOW SIMPLE THAT IS). CURRENTLY AT MY HOME WITH A FLAT BATTERY FROM SITTING (I WAS TOLD BATTERY WAS NEW). WHEN PICKING UP BRING JUMPER CABLES! DOES RUN THOUGH - AS WITH MOST OF THESE 350 CHEVROLETS THEY ARE CHEAP TO WORK ON AND LAST FOR A LONG TIME. MILEAGE OF APPROX. 88,000 IS BELIEVED TO BE TRUE - BUT NO WAY OF KNOWING. IF I WAS GOING TO KEEP IT I WOULD SWAP OUT THE CARPET AND MAKE SURE THE WIPERS WORKED.
I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE TRUCK AND AS MENTIONED IT WAS A TRADE AND I HAVEN'T HAD THE TIME TO DO ANYTHING ELSE TO THE TRUCK OR CHECK ANYTHING...ALL I KNOW IS THAT IT SEEMS TO RUN WELL (KICKS YOU BACK IN YOUR SEAT WHEN TRANSMISSION SHIFTS UP). OBVIOUSLY SOLD AS IS WITH NO WARRANTY IMPLIED. BUYER TO PAY WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION CLOSE WITH $500 DEPOSIT WITHIN 24 HOURS OF AUCTION END. HAPPY TO HELP WITH SHIPPING - BUT AT BUYERS EXPENSE. TRUCK IS CURRENTLY IN CENTRAL FLORIDA JUST NORTH OF ORLANDO.
2 KEYS COME WITH TRUCK - CLEAR TITLE. PHOTOS SHOW CONDITION - BUT DON'T ASSUME ANYTHING - PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING.

It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.

The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.
It seems to be commonplace that when a new Corvette is in development, rumors swirl about a possible mid-engine layout. As is the case of Chevy's most recent C7 Corvette, these rumors never pan out.

In any case, the idea for a 'Vette with an engine mounted behind the driver can probably all be traced back to a single car, the 1964 XP-819 prototype. Built as an "engineering exercise" back in 1964, the prototype was designed with a rear-mounted engine. History tells us that the idea of a rear-engine Corvette fizzled, and the XP-819 was eventually cut up into pieces and stored at a shop in Daytona Beach, FL.
After sitting for untold years, a restoration project started on the car, and while it isn't yet fully completed, the current owner of the car, Mid America Motorworks, will have the car on display at the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance as a "driveable chassis" with hopes of having a fully completed car ready to bring to next year's show.
While this year marks 60 years of the Chevrolet Corvette, the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance focused on one of the coupe's most sought after models, the 1963 Sting Ray. General Motors design boss Ed Welburn was on hand to show off the all-new C7 Corvette, but even the hard-edged styling of the 2014 Stingray couldn't take away from the beautiful 1963 models sitting out on the field.
In addition to the original Sting Ray and the 1959 Sting Ray Concept, some of the other classic 'Vettes included "Big Tank" racecars, an interesting cutaway coupe, a right-hand-drive Z06 and the attention-grabbing 1963 Corvette Rondine by Pininfarina. Another impressive Corvette was the 1964 Corvette XP-819 rear-engine prototype. Owner Mike Yager had the car finished as a driving chassis for this year's show, but promises the car will be back to its original glory in time for next year's event.
