For Sale is a 1968 Chevelle SS 396 all original numbers matching car. Let me just take the time to say you don't find this every day and it is a rarity. This car I am selling with a story and the tattered remains of the buildsheet I discovered between the trunk pan and the gas tank. I was able to contact the second owner and get the history on the car from 1969 to present. The car was built in Framingham Mass. and originally purchased in New York. It moved to San Antonio in 1976. Being at these locations explains the rust issues the car has. It has rust in the typical locations the rear window shelf, lower front fenders, lower rear quarters, floors and the trunk. It is a shame this car was left outside but the good news is it can all be fixed and they make replacement panels for just about everything these days. I purchased the car with the intentions of doing a frame off restoration and saving this car from the crusher. Financially I can't afford to accomplish this anytime soon. This car restored would go for over $100,000 at a Barret Jackson Event due to the car retaining all of its original equiptment and correctness. It's definately worth saving and one day will be an incredible beauty again! The options are as follows: 396/350hp engine, M-21 4 speed muncie, 12 bolt posi rear axle with 3.55 gears, Paint code V-V (Sequoia Green Metallic), Black Bucket seat interior w/Console, imitation wood steering wheel and vertical "Roll" tach in the instrument cluster. This is a four wheel drum car and came with the sleeper steel wheels and the dog dish covers from the factory. I have decoded the entire car and everything is correct on the car except for the ralley wheels and Carb. I have since located and purchased the numbers matching carb and the correct coded steel wheels. The car does run but is not road worthy as the brakes need work and it has been sitting since 1981. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I know what this car is worth so please no low ballers or tire kickes. Again this car needs a full restoration and is not for the faint of heart. Clear Colorado Title in hand. Buyer is responsible for Shipping and Transportation method. Will Deliver Locally for additional fee. Full payment is Due within 7 days of Auction end. Thanks

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.
Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.

But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
It won't be long before we see the official, production-ready Chevrolet SS sedan (hint: it will be revealed this weekend). And to tide us over until all of the official details are released about the US-spec version, we have this: the Holden VF Commodore SS V show car, a performance-oriented brother to the Calais V that debuted earlier in the week.
What we really want to know about the SS V is what lies underhood, but General Motors' Australian arm is keeping that under wraps until the Chevy model breaks cover this weekend. Nevertheless, it's obvious that the SS V will be a serious performer, with all sorts of aggressive cues driving that home on the car's exterior. Take a look at those 20-inch billet aluminum wheels that hide big Brembo brake calipers up front, the sculpted hood and front fascia, the wide air intakes with LED running lights and the quad exhaust pipes out back. It's like the Pontiac G8 GXP never even left us.
Inside, there's a sporty-looking interior with aluminum accents that mix in with black leather and suede surfaces, all tied together in the middle with an eight-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment system. It looks great, and again, while we don't know anything regarding powertrain details, it makes us oh-so happy to see a manual shifter smack dab in the middle of the center console.
