Henrico, Virginia, United States

Tinted glass all the way around. No power options
except for power windows. Pure American muscle! Everything works correctly except for the clock and the original
radio. The power antenna works, but the radio only emits a static/buzzing noise when turned on. The bumpers, chrome
and emblems are all extremely nice. All bonding strips intact. The only sign of damage I see is that the lower
front valance was replaced at some point. The car drives excellent, and has many new parts including 4 new shocks
and recent rear inner bearing replacement.
The car appears to be a factory equipped side exhaust car, as there is no evidence of rocker molding brackets
having been cut off.
The car has a 1967 427 block installed casting number 3904351 date coded J136 (Oct 13, 1966). The block has been
decked and the pad in front of the R/H cylinder head is blank.
I am confident it is an original 427/425HP car based on the following: 1) 6500 RPM redline tach. 2) 80 lb oil
pressure gauge. 3) LB sticker on back of dash cluster. 4) AZ code ( 3:55 Ratio) differential with date code 4 56
(April 4, 1966). The AZ code rear was used only in 427 cars. 5) The M21 transmission has the original tag
P/N388085. This P/N M21 was used only with the AZ code rear end. The VIN is stamped on the transmission along with
the date code of PO311 (March 11, 1966). 6) Half shafts have threaded bolts with caps. 7) Rear sway bar. 8) Has
correct fuel line on frame adjacent to fuel pump with 90 degree bend.

GM applies for LT5, LTX trademarks... are new small block variants coming?

Mon, 29 Apr 2013 17:29:00 EST

Recently discovered General Motors trademark applications for LT4, LT5, LT88 and LTX have observers wondering what kind of high-performance offerings could be on their way. A new LT4 would mark a return of the engine designation first used on the Corvette Grand Sport, SLP Pontiac Firehawk and SLP Chevrolet Camaro SS from 1996 and 1997. Supposition at Corvette Forum - which provided advance intel on the C7 like these leaked images - believes a new LT4 could go into the high-performance trim of the next-gen, 2015 Camaro that would be more powerful than the 580-horsepower Camaro ZL1.
Seeing an LT5 again would also be déjà vu - in its former life it was a 5.7-liter V8 for the C4 Corvette ZR-1 from 1990-1994 designed by Lotus, producing from 370 hp to 405 hp. A mix of rumor and hope is that the new LT5 will be a supercharged evolution of the 6.2-liter LT1 (pictured) placed in the new C7 Corvette, and that it will go into the C7 version of the ZR1 pumping out something like 700 hp.
The LTX trademark is, as with that last letter, a complete mystery. If the "X" isn't a generic way to denote the whole LT family, it's wondered if it LTX could refer to a crate motor offering like the LSX.

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.

GM recalls 8,500 Chevrolet Malibu models for rear suspension glitch

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 14:15:00 EST

According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
