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.

The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.

Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.

Chevrolet Camaro in Korea - Click above for high-resolution image
There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
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.
