**Full Disclosure**

I was asked to sell this vehicle for a family member whose husband recently passed away. They asked me because I have been a collector of classic cars over the years (lucky me). I do not usually sell vehicles that I don't know the total history on, but I was asked to help. From what I was able to find out from his (the previous owner) neighbor, who apparently would come over and hang out as he (the previous owner) worked on it—I know the following about this vehicle, but cannot vouch for its condition other than what I was told.

It was explained to me that this truck was originally scheduled for a complete restoration inside and out. However, it appears that the previous owner was only able to complete the mechanical portion of the project. The truck is currently equipped with a fully rebuilt 454 big block bored 30 over and a rebuilt 400 turbo 3 speed transmission with a custom Flow Master exhaust system with H pipe (engine and transmission currently have less than 100 miles on them and are still in break-in period.)

The first stage of break-in (the first running, idle hold, and then high rpm hold) was done and the oil was then dumped and the second stage break-in oil is currently in the motor. The vehicle has not really been driven except for a couple runs around the block and was told that —he—(the previous owner) felt it had further adjustments to be made after more miles were added (usually 400-500).

The truck itself has body issues with regard to some dents and there are signs of some less than great body work as well as some rust on the front right fender. Not regular rust, but looks as it was due to a leak from the battery a long time ago (See Pic #24) I have not inspected this vehicle for rust, but I did notice some by the lower front doors (forward by the jam, but on the door not the frame). The floor pans look okay (possibly replaced), windshield will need to be replaced and the interior is not complete. Trim is rough and the front bumper is no beauty queen (I assume this would have been the next stage of the restoration.) The underside of the truck is clean and he (the previous owner) must have recently gone through it and then sealed it. (See Pics.)

Truck fires right up (See Video Link Below) and gauges and instruments seem to all work. (See List Above.) Drives fine, although I only took it for a run around the neighborhood myself. Not sure what adjustments it would require, as I am not an engine builder/ mechanic, but it seemed to run pretty good (the thing is a beast.) Brakes will need adjustment (four wheel drum.) Looks like the beginning of a good project to me, but I am more knowledgeable of classic cars than classic trucks.

I have tried to describe this vehicle to the best of my ability but each person's opinions do vary, so please ask questions. The reserve is set pretty low (well under NADA low side condition 4) and I don't know if this is the best deal in the world or the worst. I have linked below to a video of the truck starting and running. I am happy to answer any questions, but please keep in mind I do not know the full history of this vehicle and will answer what I can. I currently have the vehicle in my possession and the title is in my name now. It is clean and clear from the state of New Mexico. I'm happy to assist with shipping logistics if needed.

Why does the Corvette Stingray have so many vents? Here's why

Sun, 27 Jan 2013 19:57:00 EST

Just looking at the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's not hard to see that the car's design was created with aerodynamics at the forefront, but Chevrolet designers point out exactly what went into designing the iconic coupe in a pair of recently released videos. The videos show the Corvette going through early design phases, including clay models and wind tunnel tests, as well as talking to the car's chief engineer, Tadge Juechter.
Both videos help explain various aspects of the C7 Corvette, but it's the aero tuning of the car that is most interesting. This includes extra attention paid to the lower air dam and vented hood to help reduce drag and lift, while the rear quarter inlets are for differential and transmission cooling. Juechter said that some of these aero-tuned elements were inspired from GM's involvement in racing.
If you have about five minutes and you can't get enough information about the new 'Vette, then check out the videos posted below.

Pics Aplenty: Meet the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 20:01:00 EST

Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.
We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.

2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel arrives with 42 mpg for $25,695*

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 00:01:00 EST

The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
