1965 Chevelle Malibu Convertible Project, Nice Top And Interior on 2040-cars

Year:1965 Mileage:99000
Location:

Upton, Massachusetts, United States

Upton, Massachusetts, United States

 This car is not ready to drive home it will need some work. I bought it site unseen and it unfortunately was not was I was promised.

THE GOOD

It is a 65 chevelle convertible,

it is complete

the seats have been recovered and are in great shape, the top is on good shape and is very useable.

the frame is solid,

It has nice rally wheels with good useable tires, ( the torque Thurst wheel on the pass front will be swapped out)

Clear title (am waiting for it from the registry may take a few weeks)

The motor is a 400 Small Block a very rare motor (not numbers matching)


The BAD

Rust was repaired and the car was repaired very much less than professionally, (look at the photos) Has too much bondo.   It could be used as is as a RAT but it is a Chevelle convertible and I would restore it if I had the time.

It will need some wiring, I have not gotten it running, can get it to turnover with a screwdriver on the starter ( again I would restore)

The trim is banged up and screwed on poorly.


Overall a complete car that needs some work, could be gotten running or motor replaced and uses as is but personally I would do new quarters and a trunk floor. All parts are readable available on ebay or other places.

Plan on bringing a trailer.

It is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the auction early if it sells locally.


Please do not bid if you don't have permission to buy/ don't have the money or are not serious.

Use this PowerPoint when convincing your spouse to let you buy a Corvette

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 12:45:00 EST

When you are not the one in charge of the purse strings, creativity is a must when trying to get the string-holder to bankroll that next shiny object you just can't live without.
When I was a kid, I decided that life wasn't worth living if it weren't in pursuit of owning a GMC Typhoon. My 12-year-old self crafted a fiscal strategy that, when combined with my offer of a 49-percent share of ownership in the car in return for my parents' contribution of 80-percent of the purchase price, would see me behind the wheel of a Typhoon by the time I hit college. They walked away from the negotiating table and, the economic climate of the 8th grade being what it was at the time, another partner wasn't found before the Typhoon was discontinued.
Roy El-Rayes, however, has succeeded where 12-year-old me failed, and he did it by using the sort of professionalism that only a PowerPoint presentation can provide, along with some humor and bold-faced flattery.

2014 Chevrolet Cruze TD fires up its new diesel motor

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ever since General Motors confirmed plans to produce a diesel-powered Cruze back in 2011, we've been eagerly awaiting its arrival. And as part of the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, Chevrolet has pulled back the cover on its oil-burning compact sedan, set to go on sale in the near future with a starting price of $25,695, not including $810 for destination.
The heart and soul of the Cruze TD (that's its official name) is a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline four-cylinder engine rated at 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, mated solely to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine also has an overboost function that will increase torque to 280 lb-ft for up to ten seconds. The full brace of official specs haven't been released, but GM tells us that highway fuel economy will come in at 42 miles per gallon. If that number sounds familiar, it's because the Volkswagen Jetta TDI has the exact same rating. Unlike the Jetta, however, the Cruze TD can run on B20 biodiesel, where as the Volkswagen can only accept B5.
Model-specific changes to this 2014 Cruze TD include an aero kit and unique 17-inch alloy wheels. Inside, there's a full leather interior, and Chevrolet will provide two years of complimentary scheduled maintenance, not to mention a 100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Corvette Stingray Shooting Brake under consideration by Callaway [w/poll]

Mon, 18 Mar 2013 16:58:00 EST

Callaway has released a few renderings of a design study for a shooting brake version of the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The company says it wants to create a long-roof version of America's sports car to offer buyers more interior room and a vehicle with "unique style." The company says it will use structural carbon fiber for the new body bits, which suggests the conversion shouldn't add too much more weight to the Corvette. Along with a few mechanical tweaks, the Callaway Corvette Stingray AeroWagon could breeze past the 200 miles per hour barrier.
Provided that they get enough interest, Callaway estimates they will be able to effect the changes on the Chevrolet for around $15,000, and says the conversion work should be available through its network of dealers. You can check out the brief press release below for more information, or head over to the Callaway site to plunk down a deposit - but before you do, we want to know... do you find this C7 wagon interesting?
