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!

GM throttles back Chevy Malibu, Buick LaCrosse production over swollen inventories

Wed, 06 Feb 2013 15:31:00 EST

As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.
Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze spied on its home turf

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 17:30:00 EST

The next Chevrolet Cruze isn't set to go into production for about another year, and we're just now seeing prototypes of the new compact running around here in the States. Not much more has been revealed since we saw the car blasting through the snow in Europe, but we can still clearly see new design elements like the larger grille, slimmer headlamps and redesigned taillamps.
Our spy photographers worked up a composite image of this Cruze prototype alongside the current model, and here, we can clearly see some big visual changes are in store for the new model. The 2015 Cruze's hood slopes downward more dramatically, the windshield is more heavily raked, and the roofline looks more fluid overall. The next-generation Cruze will ride on the new global Delta platform that will also underpin other General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
As for what's under the hood, we expect the normal range of gasoline four-cylinder engines (both naturally aspirated and turbocharged), and the compact's new turbodiesel four should carry over, as well. Have a look at the full brace of spy photos in the gallery above.

First 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray spotted crashed in the wild

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 21:47:00 EST

This restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is wearing manufacturer plates, and it appears to be the same one seen around the internet in various pictures lately. This crash is likely not part of the Chevrolet testing regimen, however. Digital Corvettes forum member gpetry posted the shot with a note: "got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week..." No circumstances are given, other than the incident occurred in the thick of a set of curvy roads, and the coupe ping-ponged off a guardrail and into the rock wall. Hopefully everyone involved in the incident walked away.
It may not be a pretty thing to see, a crashed sports car that's not even available for sale yet, but rest easy. Many pre-production cars are used for development and then unceremoniously crushed and scrapped, anyway. If that's the case here, that makes this wrecked 'Vette less of a tragedy and more of a case of exceptional efficiency.
