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
It looks like there some changes in store for the Chevrolet Camaro - the only thing is that we just don't know what Chevy has up its sleeve. Looking at these spy shots, we'd initially be inclined to think that there is just a minor facelift or a new special edition, but upon closer inspection, there are a few oddities about this car that definitely have us intrigued.
The most obvious difference on this prototype is the slightly restyled front fascia with a smaller lower air inlet and the two-bar grille. Then we get to some of the car's mysterious details. For starters, this fascia has the SS vent above the grille, but it looks to be blocked off. Granted this could just be a one-off piece used for testing. What really piqued our interest was at the rear of the car where it has quad exhaust outlets that are used on the ZL1. Could this be the LS7-powered Camaro that we reported on back in December?
At this point, your guess is as good as ours as to what we're looking at here, so let us know in the comments what you think this could be.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
PickupTrucks.com has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.
Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to PickupTrucks.com to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.
