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.

GM recalls full-size truck, SUVs and vans over faulty shifter mechanism

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 08:28:00 EST

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:31:00 EST

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
