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.

As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.

Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.

According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.
