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
Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.
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.
