Up for sale here I have a rusty original 1949 Chevrolet 3100 short bed rat rod or parts truck. I would not advise buying this truck if you are wanting to build a shiny show truck it's to far gone but all the fenders are usable if you can work the dents out and the rockers are nice. There is rust in the frame on the passenger side between the cab and bed (see pic). The running boards and tailgate have lots of holes in them as we'll. The hood looks good but I'm sure there is rust in the brace by the hinges. There is rust in the floor, kick panels, cowl, cab corners, doors, beltline and all the other spots mentioned before. The truck is very complete and missing very few parts that I'm aware of. Mainly the top of the seat, the drivers side headlight trim, the carb, the air cleaner, and the hood side emblems. All the dash parts are on it as well as all the window garnish moldings. It has its original engine (locked up) and 3 speed trans. The key is still in the ignition. The truck has a clear Ks title in my name and is titled to the engine number by the dipstick which is how these trucks were titled when new. There's no body tag on the truck. The truck rolls fine and will have tires that hold air for easy loading. The brakes don't work at all. The factory bumpers are both on the truck and I think they're pretty straight. The glass is all in the truck and the only cracked piece is the rear window. All of the glass is old and the windshield is hazy around the edges. If you are wanting to build a rat rod that looks like its been in a field for 20 years than this is the truck for you but if your wanting to build a shiny custom it's not unless you want to rob some parts off of it. This is a no reserve auction and the truck is for sale locally so the auction may end at anytime before a bid is placed. If the truck doesn't bring the starting bid it will be parted out and crushed. Full payment due within 7 days and the buyer is responsible for shipping. Call 785-220-4411 with questions or email. Thanks and good luck.

Living in an apartment complex has its benefits, but for shade-tree mechanics who like/need to work on their own cars, it definitely has a number of disadvantages. Relatively simple tasks such as brake jobs and oil changes are difficult when you don't have dedicated driveway space, to say nothing of more in-depth repairs... like pulling an engine, for example.

For these types of challenges, a little ingenuity and plenty of muscle are needed to get the job done. Scroll down to watch these four men snatch the V8 out of a Chevrolet K1500 using nothing but a chain, landscape timber and good ol' fashioned brute strength. Good work, gentlemen.
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.
General Motors has finally dropped the curtain on the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra. Both trucks have undergone substantial revisions with updated versions of the company's 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 engines. In a shot across the bows of both Ford and Chrysler, GM says it won't use a V6 engine adapted from passenger car applications. Instead, it developed the 4.3-liter engine based on its proven truck-duty architecture.
All three mills will boast direct injection fuel systems as well as a new cylinder head design. Combined with a revised piston, the new engines feature a smaller combustion chamber with a compression ratio of 11:1 or higher depending on the application. Cylinder deactivation and continuously variable valve timing are all part of the recipe, and each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with auto grade breaking. So far, no fuel economy or horsepower figures have been released, though GM says the new engines will best their predecessors in both areas.
Outside, the trucks feature a number of enhancements to reduce drag and wind noise, and GM claims both the Silverado and Sierra will offer buyers some of the quietest cabins in the class. Extended cab models now feature front-hinged rear doors to allow easier access to the back passenger area, and Crew Cab buyers can now select between a five-foot, eight-inch bed or a six-foot, six-inch bed. Buyers with a mind toward going off road will also rejoice in the return of the Z71 package, complete with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and additional under-body protection.
