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!

Chevrolet Camaros at SEMA are a mobile accessory catalog

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 09:02:00 EST

Chevy's goal at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week seems to be to show as much of its Performance and Accessories catalog as possible. That's why it brought three different Camaros - two with V8s and one powered by a V6 - with all of the best goodies from the catalog already fitted.
We gave a more in-depth recap of the Performance Camaro V8 Concept, the Performance Camaro V6 Concept and the Performance Garage Concept already, but we figured you'd like a short recap for each. It should be noted, though, that you can order all of the items you see here for your own Camaro, so be sure to take a long, hard look at our live galleries, just in case you're in the market for some mods.
Essentially, the Performance Garage Concept and the Performance V8 Concept are the same car - the only difference is that the later features a whole host of aesthetic tweaks in addition to its aftermarket, shorty exhaust headers and 2.75-inch exhaust. (The Performance Garage Concept has been usefully placed on its side; the better to see the new parts added to the vehicle.) The Performance V6 Concept is notable because, despite being a V6, there's no shortage of performance goodies fitted. All three of the Performance Camaros benefit from items from the Camaro ZL1, which can also be ordered through the catalog.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Convertible offers a few more views before reveal

Mon, 04 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.

GM recalls full-size truck, SUVs and vans over faulty shifter mechanism

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 08:28:00 EST

Twelve different General Motors vehicles from the 2013 model year, up to 54,686 units in total, are being recalled over two potential issues with their steering columns. The models in question, all full-size trucks, SUVs or vans, are the: Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Savana, Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The affected vehicles were built with a fractured parking lock cable or "a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly." As a consequence, they could shift out of park without the brake pedal being applied or with the key removed or in the off position.
A bulletin from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that the recall should begin on January 17. GM will notify owners, at which time they can take their vehicles to their dealers for repair free of charge. Have a look at the bulletin below for more information.
