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.

Pure Vision Design TT Camaro has 1,400 reasons to want it

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 13:00:00 EST

We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.
Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.

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.
