Original Wheels and 6.70-15 Wide Whitewall tires in front, and 7.10-15 Wide Whitewall tires in back. It is missing part of the windshield frame as you can see in the photos.  The seats and seat frames were stored indoors and are in great condition for their age.  This Classic is very rare and you won't find these anymore. It is probably 99% Complete and original. It is a barn/field find and was stored for 53 years. It will need a restoration.  It does not run.  Body was hit in passenger hinge pillar area and there was damage to passenger floor, rocker panel, dash, passenger door and firewall. It does have a new passenger hinge pillar glued in, but it will need re-glued in correct location.  It will also come with a cowl section from a 58-62 corvette to use for repairs on passenger side, cowl section alone is worth $2k.  It will also come with a  very good condition passenger door for replacement. There was a previous panel replacement on right front I think, but can't tell, will need some glass work. It will need fiberglass work in some other areas, just to let you know so you don't expect it to be perfect. The wheels on it are off of my S-10 and don't go with it, It does have the 4 original wheels with 3 original hub caps. Owner lost the title 50 years ago, and therefore it does have a clear bonded title as 1956 corvette.  If your looking for a driver-keep looking, this is a project and needs someone who is willing to appreciate it and do what it needs.     Frame is in great condition with surface rust.  If you don't have the cash don't call. These opportunities don't come along every day. Call to come see, thanks.  If your serious about it call 402-305-1337.   

This is also advertised locally and I reserve the right to cancel the listing.  
Thanks for looking and good luck bidding.

Watch NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon put one over on a used car dealer... sorta

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 12:57:00 EST

Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.
Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.

Why Cadillac thinks it needs to succeed in Europe to sell cars elsewhere

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.

800k car names trademarked globally, suddenly alphanumerics seem reasonable

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 11:01:00 EST

What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.
That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
