Up for bid is a 1951 Chevy Cab Over Engine (COE) model 5700. This truck is all original and is rock solid. Just about everything works ,speedometer, oil pressure ,amp gauge, gas gauge, temp gauge, heater. Wipers are slow because I think there is a vacuum leak and have not looked for it. 2 speed rear has a new diaphragm and new lines to it, but not sure if it works because of vacuum leak. The fuel tank has been cleaned and sealed and has a new sending unit and new fill and vent hose. Front end has new wheel cylinders both sides and new brake hoses. Brake shoes were at least 75% so they we not changed. Right front has new wheel bearings and of course new seals both sides. I did not change any thing in back but have new rear seals for the back in boxes. Also have a new brake hose for the rear in a box just haven't put in on. New brake line to the rear end .Seat has been redone. There is absolutely no rot on this truck other than a little blistering at the cab corners .There are a few dents in the doors and fenders but are totally fixable. This truck could easily be restored because every thing is there. The original wiring is there but it is a bit brittle. Or some one could put it on another chassis and make a car hauler out of it . Either way its a great truck to work with they don't come much more solid than this. Also have a new back window rubber, new weather stripping for doors, new door opening weather stripping (goes on inside of cab, also new quickwire wire harness still in box.

Unibody Ford Ranger replacement
After months of speculation, Chevrolet has finally revealed the official starting price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The base MSRP for the 450-horsepower Stingray Coupe will be $51,995, while the Stingray Convertible will go for $56,995 (*both prices include a $995 destination fee). This means that the price increase from 2013 to 2014 is just $1,400 for the coupe and $2,395 for the convertible - pretty modest increases considering the upgrade in specifications. Of course, neither price accounts for the sort of dealer markup that might grace early C7 window stickers, especially since less than a third of all Chevrolet dealers will be allocated Corvette models to sell at the car's launch.

Now, these prices are for the base car, so if you're wondering how much a fully loaded Stingray will run, Chevy has given us a good indication of that as well. The coupe we saw on display at the Detroit Auto Show (shown above), for example, would run $73,360 including options such as the $2,800 Z51 Performance Package, $2,495 competition sport seats and the $1,795 Magnetic Ride Control option - just to name a few. Stepping up to the 3LT trim level that brings a full leather interior will run an extra $8,005 over the base price.
While $20,000 in options may seem like a lot, this "as-tested" price still has the C7 competitively priced against rival coupes like the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R. Speaking of price comparisons, Chevrolet also points out that the C7 Stingray Z51 costs $2,200 less than the C6 Grand Sport while delivering better acceleration (0-60 mph in less than four seconds) and improved track performance (including more than 1 g in cornering).
Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.
