85 Chevy 1/2 Ton 4x4 On 1 Ton Chassis. Fresh 454, Trans, Transfer Case And Diffs on 2040-cars
Saint Clair Shores, Michigan, United States
|Hi everyone, I'm selling my 85 chevy "1/2" ton 4x4. It currently sits on a 1 ton suspension with 8+ inches of lift. The engine is a fresh 454 big block with a performance RV cam, Edelbrock intake and Edelbrock 750 cfm carb. Blaster coil. Roller rockers! All the good stuff pushing around 450hp.Trans is a freshly rebuilt automatic with 2200 RPM stall. Transfer case was rebuilt at the same time. Rancho shocks all the way around. 14 bolt detroit locker rearend with fresh 4:56 gears. Front diff just had new seals and fresh 4:56 gears installed also. Hedman headers into dual exhaust. Runs strong! With the 37x12.5x15 Super Swampers, she'll climb up and through nearly anything you throw at her. B&M floor shifter gets that annoying lever out of your way while heading of road. Though it has been off road it has never ben beat on! Brakes are good all around!
The body is very solid for a 28 year old truck...but it does have a couple of areas that rust have set in. I will include pictures of these areas. Rockers are solid! Just the very end of both doors and right behind the rear tires...but nothing beyond repair. Truck still presents very well. I would recommend different tires if you plan to drive this truck on the highway.
Interior has 2 racing bucket seats with 5 point harnesses. Full gauge cluster and tach. Awesome running truck. Heater has been deleted...but I have everything to install heater back in place.
As much as I hate to part with it...the wife needs a new car since the arrival of our grandson. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I'll answer them as quickly as possible.
I will not deliver...local pick up only. However...I will work with any shipper you arrange.
No warranty offered or implied
Good luck and happy bidding everyone.
Would entertain trade or partial trade for nice Jeep Wrangler...extended cab diesel 4x4...or nice nova.

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.

For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.
Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.

So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" tagline has finally been run into the ground, replaced with the Bowtie brand's "Find New Roads" slogan that's part of parent General Motors' plan to unify its everyday brand's marketing efforts worldwide. The new Chevrolet campaign was ushered in on prime time last night during the Grammy Awards on CBS, and the first spot, a 90-second full-line ad, also marks the first appearance of the 2014 Corvette Stingray in a commercial.
Being a full-line ad, the commercial is composed of vignettes centered on different vehicles in the brand's lineup. The all-new 2014 Impala also makes its first commercial appearance in dapper fashion, and time is spent on a skateboarding Sonic and a bouquet of brightly colored Spark hatchbacks driven by fashionable women. The ad starts and ends with Chevy's green halo car, the Volt, along with a young girl with her robotic dog (yes, really).
Chevrolet's "Runs Deep" campaign got off to a rocky start in the fall of 2010, but it did last for a couple of years with some tweaks. This new one, "Find New Roads" seems more intent on drawing new customers into the fold than the outgoing tagline, which seemed to play more toward the brand faithful. It admittedly reminds us more than a little the short-lived "Find Your Own Road" Saab motto (which, we note, was conceived while the Swedish brand was under GM's control), but no matter, we still think it's got more long-term potential than "Runs Deep."
