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.

Chevy Corvette Stingray "colorizer" lets you chase the rainbow

Thu, 14 Feb 2013 16:29:00 EST

After you've convinced your better half to let you buy a new Corvette, then comes the hard part... actually figuring out which 'Vette you want. While Chevrolet has yet to release the official configurator for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, it did give us something else to kill some time playing around with.
The C7 Corvette "colorizer" recently went online, and it lets you look at the car in all of its available colors and wheel options from four different angles so that when this car does go on sale, you know exactly which one you want. It includes the Corvette's full pallet of colors including Torch Red, Laguna Blue and the hue you see above, Velocity Yellow. Toss in the black wheels, and we're sold. If you have some time this afternoon, be sure to check it out the Corvette colorizer for yourself, and even if you don't have the time, we've put together a gallery with all of the possible color combinations.

Next-gen Chevy Cruze caught cruising in the cold

Wed, 13 Feb 2013 14:01:00 EST

Spy photographers have caught what looks like the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze out on snow patrol. The camo could be tricking our eyes, but it look like it has an even tidier, more rounded front end and even lower fenders in relation to the top of the hood. And either a chunk of camo has been wedged between the side mirrors and the doors, or the mirrors are up for revision, too.
The door handles have been moved up the side of the car, leading the way to a rear end that grows a bit in length. If the rumors are true, the coming second-generation Cruze sits on the new D2XX platform that will replace the Delta and Theta platforms at General Motors. A global architecture, the Cruze will be the first to get it, but it will underpin everything from next Chevrolet Volt to the Equinox and could be responsible for 2.5 million units by 2018. The next Cruze is expected to begin production in GM's Lordstown, Ohio plant in the third quarter of 2014.

Next Corvette ZR1 to get 700 horsepower?

Tue, 19 Feb 2013 18:30:00 EST

Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
