Vehicle came out of Maryland. This car was acquired from the 3rd owner I believe. It was basically an original survivor that has had a repaint recently. Real SS car with some nice options! When I bought it I drove it all the way home to NY and did some minor work on it here and there as needed. Surprising how nice this car feels and rides. Almost everything in the car works, including the power windows, wipers, radio and even the horn!
Body is VERY STRAIGHT with excellent original gaps. Doors open and close flawlessly. I don't think you'll find a nicer original car for the money than this one!
Under the hood lies the factory 409ci/340hp 4bbl. motor. This is a REAL passenger car 409 with the "X" on the driver's side of the block, and even has the "409SS " on the dipstick. It has been upgraded with a Holley 750cfm 4bbl. double-pumper carburetor, MSD plug wires and external performance ignition coil, as well as full headers into dual exhaust. Radiator is also upgraded to an aluminum unit for better cooling (with original fan shroud mounted on it).
Mechanically it fires right up and sounds great. Transmission is solid and shifts good through all the gears without any noises or grinding. I drove the car about once a week, both around town and on the highway and it performs great. You can cruise with it on the highway all day at 65mph and I would trust it to drive anywhere at the drop of a hat. Very easy to drive with power steering and brakes.
Interior is basically all stock with no modifications. Seats are in good shape (small rip by lower driver's side from getting in and out). Carpet is older but presentable. Door panels are in decent shape, with a couple of small rips by the armrests. Headliner should be replaced. Dash has had a plastic "cap" put over the original, which had cracks in it. Steering wheel in fair shape with a few cracks. Console in fairly good shape. Sunvisors need to be redone/replaced. Overall very presentable for a nice driver. KEEP IN MIND THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE ORIGINAL AND UNMOLESTED INTERIOR IN THE CAR.
Underside has a GOOD FRAME on it. Normal scaly surface rust from decades of use. Floors appear to be in good shape overall with a couple of small areas that may need a small patch or two, but NO large holes. Trunk pan is SOLID and has had a patch on the middle flat section. Overall structurally sound and in good shape.
Chrome is original and presentable for a driver with some pitting throughout and minor surface rust. Bumpers should be replaced. Side trim looks fairly good but could use new tape inserts to make it pop.
Previous owner gave me a bunch of parts for this car as well so they are available to the winning bidder at an additional price if desired:
1) new gas tank
2) new trunk weatherstripping
3) used front bumper ends
4) new rear license plate trim piece
5) new rear taillight housings
6) new interior scuff plates
7) various other minor odds and ends
The old girl is NOT perfect by any means of course so please keep that in mind when bidding. Paint is in FAIR/GOOD overall shape throughout (could use a good wetsand and buff as it has some orange peel here and there and could have been prepped better before painting of course), with various imperfections throughout as it was NOT a $10K paintjob. Looks good from 20 feet. Not working: gas gauge (needs new sending unit), clock, windows work but are rather slow, tachometer (not connected), perhaps a bulb or two could use replacing. Carburetor needs to be primed when first started. Window trim is pitted and has rust spots in various places. Missing: cowl tag, door and trunk weatherstripping, driver's side sunvisor. A couple of the tires need replacing due to dry rot. Exhaust has a rattle and needs one hanger replaced.
So overall she is not perfect and to do it justice should be completely restored, or you can just drive it as is. Please note, I cannot remember every single issue with the car, nor do I know everything wrong with it, as it is after all over 50 years old so keep that in mind.
If you just want a GOOD LOOKING ORIGINAL SURVIVOR that runs/drives great and is loaded with rare options, then this is the car for you. If you want a show car, it will need a considerable amount of restoration to bring it up to that level of course. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE BIDDING OR SERIOUSLY INTERESTED TO COME LOOK AT IT IN PERSON. I WILL BE GLAD TO SHOW IT TO YOU TOP TO BOTTOM SO YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE GETTING INTO.

One of the things that dogs the full comeback of General Motors is the instability of its marketing. That part of the automaker got yet another big shakeup today when GM confirmed what I have been tweeting for a few days - strong rumors that the Chevrolet and Cadillac ad accounts are walking to new ad agencies. Cadillac, GM's luxury brand, is going into review from Fallon Worldwide, Minneapolis and the indications are that Campbell-Ewald, Chevy's old ad shop, will end up with most or all of it. C-E just announced that it was moving from its long-time home in Warren, MI to a new downtown Detroit office next to Ford Field, just blocks from GM. The other shoe to drop shortly will be the shift of GM's most important brand, Chevy, from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners of San Francisco to McCann-Erickson of Troy, MI. McCann used to be the agency for Buick and GMC, as well as GM's corporate advertising, and has retained some pieces of business over the last few years. Sources have even told us that it was McCann that did a lot of the creative work on Chevy's new ad platform, Find New Roads. (Not to be confused with a former McCann tagline for Saab, "Find Your Own Road.")
It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts. Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well. So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall notice for a small number of General Motors fullsize vans due to possible rollaway concerns. On certain 2013 Chevrolet Express and 2013 GMC Savana models, it is possible to remove the key from the ignition without the shifter being in park. Only 980 total units are being affected by this recall, and GM is fixing the issue by replacing the ignition cylinder and associated keys. Affected Chevy vans were built during most of November and December while its GMC counterpart was only built for a week in November. The recall goes into effect on January 23, and to find out if your vehicle applies to the recall, the GM and NHTSA contact numbers can be found on the official recall notice, which is posted below.
