Offered for sale is a very rare 1967 Caprice convertible. Absolutely unmolested, unrestored and ready to be driven to shows and meets. The 427 engine growls as it should and the Caprice runs flawlessly. The three-speed turbo-hydramatic transmission shifts fine. The car has just over 90,000 original miles and has recently come out of an estate owned by a serious Chevrolet collector. This powerful car spent most of its life in Kalispell, Montana. Engine code "IJ" is correct for the car. Has lots of options: air conditioning (all the parts are there but it is not hooked up), power windows, power top, factory AM/FM radio, and tilt column.  The radio actually plays but faintly--I would guess a new speaker.The ragtop looks good from twenty feet..closer inspection reveals a few minor items which need to be dealt with if someone planned to show the car. A couple of seams in the front bench seat have separated, there are a couple of small cracks in the padded dash, the windshield has one small rock pit but it is in line with the mirror and out of driver's field of vision. The body could also use a little TLC..a couple of places where rust is showing, a small crease in the LH fender, deck lid shows repaint over a previous repair on the lid's upper surface. Although the car can be driven and enjoyed with pride just like it is, the poor repaint does little justice to this highly collectable car. A paint job would improve things a lot. The ride is smooth but a new set of narrow whites would be a fine complement to the correct factory rally wheels. More photos available upon request. Car is advertised locally.

A final note: The top mechanism works as it should and the black paint on the rails still has its gloss. The top? Well, it would keep out the rain but the seam below the glass back window is coming loose. If you plan on driving this in Seattle in March, buy a new top (I don't know who would do a damned fool thing like that anyway?). Other minor issue---arm rest pads could be replaced as well as the front kick panels. Nothing serious--just cosmetic flaws. The door trim panels are good and solid but there are small spots on the upper vinyl which could either be touched up or the full description states, this big block Chevrolet is an UNRESTORED classic. With the low reserve price I have set, there is lots of money left over to dress this convertible out and still own a true classic on the cheap. If it doesn't sell, I'll drive the beast all summer and garage it this winter...and make small cosmetic improvements as time goes by.

Okay...Thanks to some sharp eyed Ebayers, I have done more checking myself and it seems that this car which I bought out of an estate, is not quite what the Montana title says it is: a Caprice convertible. This car started out its life as a two door hardtop! Whenever the conversion was done, it was done very, very well. I have been around collector Chevrolets most of my life and I was still certtain that a mistake had been in the VIN somewhere..until I crawled underneath the car. Yep...hardtop frame. Thusly I am making the first bidder an opportunity ti withdraw his bid and we will start this over again. Sorry...I guess you can never completely trust a title.

Watch this time-lapse build of the Chevy SS for NASCAR

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 12:43:00 EST

There's only about a week left until we get our first look at the production version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS sedan, but Chevrolet NASCAR teams have been looking at the race version of the car all winter. Autoweek has posted a really neat time-lapse video showing just a portion of what it takes to build one of NASCAR's new Gen6 stock cars.
Though the video is quite brief, it does show almost the entire build process starting with just the car's nose, and it gives us a good look at how integral the template is to the final product. As a bonus, Hendrick Motorsports also provided some videos showing two of its teams performing pit stop tests over the winter. The second video shows some of the more detailed aspects of the racecar's rear end, including the stock-looking trunk cutout and a newly mandated rear bumper extension that will be used on super speedways like Daytona and Talladega.
To see what Team Chevy has been up to all off-season, check out all three videos posted after the jump.

Race Recap: 2013 Twelve Hours of Sebring, cakewalk up front, grindfest out back [w/spoilers]

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 09:33:00 EST

This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...

Chevy to show redesigned Captiva in Geneva, will it come to US rental lots?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 08:46:00 EST

Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.
