1948 GMC truck on a late 80's S10 chassis. Has 3.8l V6 This truck runs and drives great. Just like an s10. All the lights work. Has aftermarket wiper setup. I bought this truck as a project that someone started and took it to the next level. The frame was extended to fit the right wheelbase. New floors and firewall were fabricated to use the S10 dash. The work that was done is very nice and solid. The truck had metalwork done in all the usual places. The bodywork is ok but not great. Same with the paint. Looks nice, but its not a showpiece. I recently hooked the AC back up. It blows cold, but not very strong. It works good in the Florida heat. Has all new glass and rubbers. I also replaced the clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing. Has plenty of new parts here and there including idler pulley, battery, starter, mirror and arm, oak bed floor and wear strips, door handles and much more. The windows roll up and down fine. Has a brand new set of 4 meaty tires. Less than 200 miles on them. Any questions, give me a call at 570-299-1755. The reserve is extremely low for this truck since its not exactly the high quality truck I usually build. Clear Title in hand ready to go.
Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.
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.
