We have a 1941 Chevy truck. Think it is a 1/2 ton, not sure. Took a lot of pics, look at them good as they say it all. Was told it sat for 20 years in field from who we bought it from. They drove it there and parked it. We tracked down the last known registered owner as the truck came without a title, but had a newer vin number on door for Oregon. So fortunately found him. 28 years had passed since he owned it. He told us that it was used on his grandfathers farm. Well used with dings and dangs. Said there was a crack on the block. Outside but they sealed it and it kept on running. It ran when he sold it.  Went home and looked at the engine and sure enough we saw where they did the fix. We were told that it was a nearly all original truck. Original engine, transmission, rear end. Missing some things here and there. The truck did not roll (rear end) when we got it. Trani was in neutral.  I recently PB blasted the passenger side rear drum. As I had another car that did the same thing. Checked the easy first. And that was a stuck brake.  Was the same for this truck. Let it sit for a few days after spraying, hooked up a tow rope and pulled it a couple of feet and pop its free. Truck now rolls. The transmission can be moved into gears. The more you move them the easier it gets. The clutch pedal still can be pushed and returns with out binding. Nothing for brake pedal or gas pedal. Just there. The Engine does turn by hand. Well my hand could not fit so used a crow bar. Moved with out problem.  We don't have any keys for it.  It looks like it is still 6 volts. Can see that the push button on the starter looks like it is stuck in engage. Sprayed it with WD-40 but nothing loosened. Not going to mess with it any more than that. Dip stick shows old oil is in it. Radiator looks dry inside. Carburetor looks amazingly clean. That is the most I can say about the engine. Block number is JAA40957I (eye). 

Inside seat is tore up from critters. Springs look good on both pieces though. Glove box door latches and works with the push button and still has the spring for return. Gauge cluster has seen better days. Look at pics. Windshield wiper motors are there and I  think by reading having two was an option. Not possitive. Do NOT know if anything electrical works. Thought about getting it keyed and throwing a battery in there to see. But don't want to fry anything with a 12 volt battery. Don't know enough to try. 
You can see in the pictures there is rust. Metal bed is bolted in over the old wood bed. Can see the old wood from under the truck. Some of it is falling down from under there. Windshield is not cracked and hinges for opening it work. As you can push the lower end of windshield out and it moves. Windshield crank does not move the windshield though. Don't know if it is not connected under there or broken. Passenger door handle does not open door. Just moves. The door catch is there but stuck inside the jam. So that door does not close all the way. Reason for seeing the bungie cord from steering wheel to that door. Drivers door latches and opens just fine. Both doors have lots of rust and rust holes on the bottom of them. Tires will hold air for a good amount of days. But the drivers side will flatten after a while. Surprised they hold air at all. They look pretty tatored. If I can think of anything else, I will update. Ask us questions, we will answer to the best of our knowledge. Look at the pics.

This is being sold as-is without any warranty of any kind. What is described is to our visual limited knowledge as we are not certified mechanics. Just the home mechanic, doing projects we like and have to teach ourselves about. Shipping or picking the truck up is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. Must be paid in full through pay pal within 7 days of auction end before the truck leaves our property, no exceptions. A non-refundable deposit of 500.00 must be paid within 24 hours of auction end. 

Please don't bid if you don't have the funds to cover it, it only makes sense. Thank You and happy bidding!

Mother's Day Suggestion No. 2,506

Thu, 02 May 2013 19:59:00 EST

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.

GM recalling 426,000 sedans over faulty transmission shift cable

Fri, 21 Sep 2012 09:58:00 EST

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.

2014 Chevy Cruze Diesel arrives with 42 mpg for $25,695*

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 00:01:00 EST

The last time General Motors had a diesel passenger car in the US, it was the 1.8-liter 1986 Chevette. At the 2013 Chicago Auto Show today, GM is unveiling the much-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. The compact bows with a 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that boasts 148 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with full twist coming on at just 2,000 rpm. What's more, the common-rail, direct-injection diesel features an overboost function that allows the engine to deliver up to 280 lb-ft of torque for 10 seconds at a time. Even with 10 more horsepower and 110 more pound-feet of torque than the available turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder in the Cruze, the 2.0-liter diesel engine can return up to 42 mpg (highway) bolted to its six-speed automatic transmission.
If you're counting, that figure meets the less powerful Cruze Eco with a six-speed manual transmission. More importantly, the auto transmission Cruze Diesel matches its main competition, the Volkswagen Jetta TDI, in highway fuel economy. The Cruze 2.0 TD (as it will be badged) can also handle up to 20 percent biodiesel (B20), whereas the Jetta is rated only for B5. General Motors has not released city fuel economy for its newest diesel, but we do know how much it will cost you to jump behind the driver's seat.
GM will kindly ask for $25,695, plus an $810 destination fee. That marks a $2,115 premium over a loaded Cruze LTZ Auto and $2,640 more than the Jetta TDI, though the MSRP will net you a leather interior, 17-inch alloy wheels and an Aero Performance Package, as well as a two-year maintenance plan and five-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Compared to the gas-powered Cruze, you also lose a couple cubic feet of rear cargo space thanks to a 17-liter diesel emission fluid tank. That urea fluid, which helps put the clean in clean diesel, will need to be refilled at least every 10,000 miles.
