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.
350 small block V8
Th350 automatic transmission
4 barrel Rochester carburator
Part time 4 wheel drive with high/low range
Manual locking hubs
Front disc brakes
Dual side gas tanks
Edelbrock intake manifold
Dual batteries with isolator (currently only 1 battery is installed)
Chrome step bumper with receiver hitch
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.

There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Fri, 31 May 2013 11:00:00 EST
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.

Opt for the 2.0-liter turbo and, while power holds steady at 259 hp, torque goes up by 14 percent to a striking 295 lb-ft (a figure Chevy calls best in the class). The final details include newly programmed transmission shift points and faster shifts, for better engaging and enjoying the added power.
Looks-wise, the grille's been reshaped to be more in line with the new Chevrolet look, a narrower upper grille hovering over a larger lower grille.
Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
