Ok guys, if you have a wife or girlfriend that will need some convincing now would be the time to break out the candles, nice bottle of wine, soft music and maybe even some chocolate covered strawberries to seal the deal!

 

Up for auction is my Chip Foose inspired 1972 Chevelle convertible that took almost three years to complete and has only been driving less than 2500 miles since completion.

This is not a true ss car. but everything on it looks to be one. all the emblems,dash,grill, bumpers, gauges.

You will love my Baby! I would drive this car anywhere, it has place in every show, usually 1st or 2nd. I am not trading,the only reason it is for sale I am selling to buy our retirement home we are wanting, so some of the toys have to go.

DRIVETRAIN:

New small block 350 4 bolt main ZZ4 crate motor with 355 horsepower, custom drive shaft, holley carb.,Hooker super comp ceramic coated shorty headers, Flowmaster mufflers, full 2 1/2" exhaust with a pre-fabricated X pipe, 12 bolt posi with 3:42 gears (new seals & bearing), 200R4 overdrive transmission, 2200 overdrive transmission, 2200 street stall, four core aluminum radiator, electric cooling fan, trans cooler, K&N air filter, new high torque mini starter, new battery, new alternator, new everything!!!

BRAKES & SUSPENSION:

Quick ratio steering box, rebuilt front end with new ball joints, tie rods and bushings. Hotchkis front & rear sway baars, F-41 style boxed upper and lower control arms, lowering springs, all new front & rear brakes (slotted & cross drilled front rotors, brake master cylinder & booster, brake  lines, rear drums, shoes, hardware and more)

WHEELS & TIRES:

American Racing 17" Torque Thrust II polished wheels front and rear with Goodyear Eagle F1's 245/45/ZR17 in front & 275/40/ZR17 in rear.

BODY & PAINT:

Chip Foose inspired two tone paint job, silver and black with red pin stripping. New cowl hood with SS hood pin kit. The firewall has also been flattened relocating the heater box to the interior of the vehicle. The convertible top, hydraulic lines, motor and real glass have all been replaced. There are some very superficial scratches in the paint just from normal use, but not one single ding or dent.

OPTIONS:

Vintage air conditioning (ICE COLD), tilt steering column, center console with horse shoe shifter, SS Dash with gauges and 5500 redline tach., power disc brakes, power steering, power convertible top, AM/FM cassette player and more.

INTERIOR:

Almost the entire interior has been replaced. New carpet, new sun visors, new door panels, new rear panels, new arm rest pads, new rear view mirror, LEATHER front and rear seats (NOT VINYL) Grant steering wheel, new seatbelts and much more.

Original owners manual-Protecto plate and part of a build sheet.

The Chevelle runs and drives excellent with a very raw crisp sound from the exhaust upon acceleration, but yet very smooth and quite at idle. the Chevelle also turns on a dime with its lowered suspension 2" front and 3" back and heavy duty sway bars. I can go on and on about the car, but you will have to come and experience it yourself.

Look closely at the bottom of this car, the detail, the workmanship! This is not been spray painted for these pictures. Look at the fine detail of the door jams, smooth as new born baby butt.

The bad...light scuffs by the hood pins, but would buff out. The drivers window has real light scuffs, would not show up on pictures. The tach has stopped working, just have not had time to look into that.

The Chevelle will be available for inspection anytime. With so much done to the car I am certain that I have left something out, but I will assure you this car is very high quality driver with less than 2500 miles since it was completed. The Chevelle receives compliments every time she is out on the road or at the local car shows. I have researched the pricing of the 71-72 convertible Chevelles and found they range from about $20k-$40k+, but none that I have seen comes close to this beauty. Imagine finding a solid Chevelle convertible and then building it from the ground up such as this and see what kind of money you will spend. It will be much, much, much higher than my asking price.

I will answer all emails as quickly as possible and post the answers as I go. Make sure to have funds available prior to bidding and I reserve the right to end the auction early due to local listings. I will help you get car transported anyway I can, but all expenses and arrangements are buyers responsibility.

I am located within 15 minutes of downtown St. Louis, MO. I can pick you up from Lambert Airport with prior arrangements.

Don't miss out on this one.

Call me anytime at 618-530-3725

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK!!

Corvette Stingray designer lists five goals of new exterior shape

Fri, 12 Apr 2013 18:00:00 EST

Redesigning an icon is a difficult task, especially when you've got a blank sheet of paper in front of you and the all-new C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is intended to be your final objective.
General Motors has released a new short video featuring Kirk Bennion of the Corvette's exterior design team, talking about the challenges of sculpting Chevrolet's new flagship sports car and the five goals the team had to keep in mind as it worked. In the end, Bennion's team had the pleasure of seeing their hard work take center stage as the Corvette captured the world's eyes at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year.

Corvette Stingray Convertible images mysteriously appear on web, so we add our own

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 13:29:00 EST

It was inevitable that we'd see the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray topless at some point, but that didn't make us any less interested when a pair of supposedly leaked official images showed up on theautoinsiderblog.com last week. We posted them on our Facebook page, but held off reporting on them here until we could get a little more information.
Those images, which feature a dark red car on a sterile black studio background, supposedly first appeared on the website of diecast model maker Maisto. A Chevrolet spokesman has been reported saying that they are "not official images released by Chevrolet PR," which isn't a denial they're the real deal, but neither is it a confirmation.
Close examination of the photos suggest they could be official shots of the Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while some have doubted their authenticity due to a lack of vents (which were seen on the C7s that debuted in Detroit last week), it could be that the images are of a base model car without the Z51 package that doesn't require the extra venting and cooling.

2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel destined for Chicago debut

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 13:30:00 EST

It's been a little over a year and a half since General Motors first confirmed plans to offer a diesel-powered Chevrolet Cruze here in the United States, and we've now learned that the oil-burning compact will debut under the lights of the Chicago Auto Show in February. According to GM Authority, the Cruze Eco-D will be introduced as part of the entire 2014 model year Cruze range, set to go on sale in the second quarter of this year.
Earlier reports have indicated that the diesel Cruze will be able to achieve fuel economy numbers in the range of 50 miles per gallon. For comparison, the similarly sized Volkswagen Jetta TDI is rated at 30/42 mpg city/highway, but as we found out in our long-term test of the 2011 model, hitting 50 mpg was a piece of cake.
Official specifications will be released at the time of the 2014 Cruze's unveiling, though reports have stated that the sedan will be powered by a reworked version of the 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four found in the Holden Cruze CDX overseas. In that application, the four-pot oil-burner produces 160 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque - increases of 20 hp and 29 lb-ft over the 2.0-liter engine used in VW's Jetta TDI.
