Up for sale is a 72 SS Chevelle with a date correct 402 big block with a muncie 4 speed, 3:31 posi rear and f41 suspension. This car brought to us from an elderly lady. Her husband owed the the car for the last 16 years which is noted on the title. He pasted away 12 years ago and its been sitting in her garage since. When we went to pick up the car. It started right up. I drove the car 60 miles to my shop at 65 mph with no issues what ever. I then put on the lift and inspected the under carriage. There is no rust in floor boards, trunk or frame at all. Then we went to interior tach, speedo work correct clock is not. Fasten seat belt light works great and still has the am/fm 8 track still installed.There is some small cracks in the driver and passenger front seats, rear is perfect. Needs dome light and sail panel material tightened up. No cracks in the dash pad. The 4 speed console is in the trunk not sure why its not installed its all in tact.We then went to the drive train hoping we had a numbers matching car. After running the stamp codes on the front on the block it came back as a 1972 402 LS3 from and automatic Chevelle.We decoded the trans and rear and they are also date correct.We then went to exterior body one rust spot on the right lower front fender and front of the hood that was it. It has dings and scratches I would guess from sitting in the garage because I had to help get boxes and sports equipment from around the car to get it out. I specialize in frame off restorations on Camaro's and Chevelle's. if would like us to do work for you. If the car doesn't sell we will start the frame off in April. Before the end of the listing we will do an oil change, tune up, install the rear valance, console and correct chrome tips on the exhaust. Car needs paint, carpeting (fading), seat cover 2 front seats, dome light to be a very nice 72 SS Big Block.
Thsi car can be driven anywhere. I can be contacted on my cell at 321-695-3740 PLEASE TEXT FIRST I dont answer calls I don't recognize because of the number of calls I get in a day. Thanks and good luck. Bill Howell
Can A Fleet Queen Become a Fullsize King?
On paper, the Chevrolet Impala is a pretty strong seller, posting annual sales that have hovered right around 170,000 units for the last two years, but it only takes one trip to practically any rental car agency to discover where the majority of those sales have come from. In fact, General Motors told Autoblog that a full 70 percent of Impala sales last year went to fleet companies for things like rental cars and government vehicles. Logic tells us that this is neither good for resale values nor name equity, so Chevrolet is getting ready to roll out an all-new Impala with improved comfort, styling and technology, hoping to turn the tables on its retail-to-fleet ratio.
Chevrolet's sedans have come on quite strong in the last few months with the introduction of the Cruze diesel and the SS sedan, but while these will likely be low-volume sellers, there's more pressure for the new Impala to perform well as GM looks to slash fleet sales and compete with the wide variety of full-size sub-luxury sedans. Riding on a platform shared with the Buick LaCrosse and Cadillac XTS, the 2014 Impala will compete against the Hyundai Azera, Ford Taurus and Toyota Avalon on the more traditional side, while also looking to take a bite out of somewhat sportier models like the Chrysler 300/Dodge Charger twins and the Nissan Maxima. We headed to sunny San Diego to see if this totally new Impala can stand on its own without the assistance of fleet companies and rental agencies. [w/video
'Tis the season... for road salt. And with that, comes rust. And what does rust bring? Well, for Ford and General Motors, a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation. According to The Detroit News, NHTSA is looking into potential recalls issues with Chevrolet Express vans and Ford Freestar minivans.
The feds have received five complaints that rust has caused leaking fuel filler pipes on 2003 Express vans. Separately, seven complaints have been filed over excessive rust in the rear wheel wells of 2004 Ford Freestar and Mercury Monterey minivans. The Freestar and Monterey went out of production in 2007. Neither issue has resulted in any crashes or injuries, according to the report.
Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.
So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.
