This is a very nice surviving, unrestored car with matching numbers. Always garaged. I purchased this car about
nine years ago from a Corvette dealer based on the no-hit body, integrity and overall originality. Other than the
4-Speed, radio, shoulder belts and the fully tinted glass, it is a no option car. As a road race enthusiast, I
wanted it this way to feel the briskness of the road and the simplicity in ownership.
The original color is Goodwood Green. The car was painted in lacquer 35 years ago and it is holding up great with
no cracking but does have some nicks. This color is Riverside Gold that the original owner thought might look good
and he wanted a change. The Interior is 100 percent untouched original and only the carpet is showing any signs of
age. Even the original clear plastic floor mats are still with the car.
About nine out of ten mid-year Corvettes have blemishes and imperfections in the paint. It is just an inherent
trait with older fiberglass cars. So, in a sense, these cars always need paint jobs.
The original door waist seals and fuzzies are present and are in very good condition. This is where the window goes
down into the door...those outer seals.
The engine is matching numbers to the carís original and unmolested data plate under the dash. It has never been
apart. All engine bay components are original and matching to the car. Only the water pump was replaced (original
is included). The engine does feature the dealer added correct 350hp alloy valve covers. I rebuilt the original
Holley carb with ethanol friendly components and used the blue Holley gaskets. I also just installed an ethanol
friendly OEM fuel pump.
In my ownership, I have replaced the rear mufflers with Magnaflows, added new stainless rear tips and new chrome
bezels. I replaced the rocker panel covers and replaced the sill covers. I rebuilt the left headlight motor so that
it matched the speed of the right side and I had the front end aligned with the steering wheel perfectly centered.
This cars drives tight and smooth. They are only original once.
The stance is excellent, nice and low and level from left to right. The car tracks perfectly down the highway and
is a joy to drive. There are no cracks on the dash top and no rips or tears in the seat upholstery. The engine is
quiet, transmission shifts perfectly and rear axle geared 3.36:1 is quite.
This is a great candidate to restore, scuff and respray back to Goodwood Green, convert to a 427 clone or
Pro-Tourer. I looked at over 25 cars before buying this car for itís originality and perfect panel fit. The
bumpers were replaced with NOS units and they are pristine.

General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.
According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.
The 2014 Chevrolet Malibu, having stared at the Impala across the showroom floor for a year, gets nips and tucks all over inspired by its larger brother. The 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the base car will get a stop-start system and 23 city miles per gallon, 35 highway, each number representing a one-mpg improvement over the 2013 car. Output is 196 horsepower and 186 pound-feet of torque.
Opt for the 2.0-liter turbo and, while power holds steady at 259 hp, torque goes up by 14 percent to a striking 295 lb-ft (a figure Chevy calls best in the class). The final details include newly programmed transmission shift points and faster shifts, for better engaging and enjoying the added power.
Looks-wise, the grille's been reshaped to be more in line with the new Chevrolet look, a narrower upper grille hovering over a larger lower grille.
If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.
The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.
