This is a no reserve auction.  Please do not send me messages asking what the reserve is.


Please do not bid on my truck if you are not serious.  If you and a buddy are pulling a scam by bidding my truck up and then backing out at the last minute to scare off other bidders, I will report you to Ebay for auction tampering.  

Please feel free to ask questions about the truck before bidding, but please don't wait until the last hours of the auction.  Also, please be patient with my responses as I am usually quite busy.

Up on the auction block is my 1977 Chevrolet Cheyenne truck.  It is a pretty clean mostly original truck.  As far as the body is concerned, it is above average for the age of the truck.  I am pretty sure this truck has been in the Colorado desert it's whole life.  There are no rust outs now as I have replaced both lower cab corners and both front fender lower rear sections with new patch panels from LMC truck.  I also modified the inner panels to not hold dirt and debris in these areas anymore as to prevent future rust issues. Everything else is solid and rust free.  I have had a few of these trucks and this by far is the most rust free one I have ever seen. 

Obviously it has been repainted. The paint was faded and I just decided to respray the whole thing after the rust was repaired.   It has 3 fresh coats of PPG Omni factory color code GM 25 light blue metallic on it.  The paint looks really good, but it does have some flaws.  If you are expecting a perfect show quality paint job this probably isn't the truck for you.

Mechanically it is in decent shape.  I have replaced the spark plugs, ignition coil, cleaned the distributor grounds, replaced the starter, set ignition timing and adjusted the carb.  The engine runs good, starts every time, runs nice and cool and has great oil pressure.  

The brakes have plenty of material left on both the front pads and rear shoes.  All brake components seem to be in good shape other than a couple of grooves in the left front brake rotor.

It cruises nice and smooth down the highway.   

I have disassembled, cleaned and greased the shift lever for the 4 wheel drive so it shifts into 4x4 with ease.

All dash gauges, lights and accessories work except as described below in the "Problems" section.

I do have the A/C compressor and brackets, but it is currently not installed.


Features include:
350 small block V8
Th350 automatic transmission
4 barrel Rochester carburator
Part time 4 wheel drive with high/low range
Manual locking hubs
Power steering
Power brakes
Front disc brakes
A/C
Tilt column
Dual side gas tanks

Modifications made:
Dual exhaust
Edelbrock intake manifold
Dual batteries with isolator   (currently only 1 battery is installed)
Chrome step bumper with receiver hitch

Problems include:
Left side fuel tank not hooked up
Front left brake rotor has grooves, but brake pads are still good.
Front drive shaft CV joint is loose
Carpet is worn
Dash pad has some splits
General wear for age
Missing stereo  ( I do have a brand new, still in the box aftermarket tape deck that can be purchased separately.  Please message me if you want pictures of it)
Tailgate is dented
A/C not working

I am offering to the winner of this auction the option of  repairing all of the above items except for the A/C at a super discounted labor price of $18.00 per flat rate hour.  The winner is responsible for all parts costs if they choose to use my services.  I am more than happy to give a price quote on all or some of these items if you are interested prior to the auction ending.

As with every auction I've ever done, I am sure there is something I have forgotten.  Again, please feel free to contact me about any questions you have or if you want some more pictures.

 Thanks for looking and good luck.

Use this PowerPoint when convincing your spouse to let you buy a Corvette

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.
When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.

C7 Corvette turbo with 1,000 horsepower promised from Hennessey

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 19:01:00 EST

If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.
Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you - or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet - but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.
