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.

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.

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 10:13:00 EST

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.

GM looks to combat high theft rates on SUVs with added tech

Tue, 24 Dec 2013 14:30:00 EST

The Cadillac Escalade has been at or near the top of most-stolen and insurance-loss lists for more than seven years, until it dropped to number six earlier this year. In 2011 it was fitted with a host of new security features to address its easy-to-override features and that has brought the number of thefts down, but when eight of the ten most stolen rides are large SUVs from General Motors, no one will argue that something else needs to be done.
Thus, GM has fitted this same theft-deterring tech to the 2015 Suburban, Tahoe and Yukon. The Suburban and Tahoe will get the steering lock that the Escalade and Yukon already get, plus bolted-down third-row seats to deter thefts like this, stronger door lock cylinders and shields, and side-cut keys to inhibit picking.
Additional security measures in a Theft Protection Package can be purchased for $395, consisting of sensors on the greenhouse glass and interior, an incline/tilt sensor and added "key control systems" to make it more difficult for the men in black balaclavas to steal what you bought.
