Rare 1955 Chevrolet 1/2 ton first series short bed pick-up.
I’m listing this truck for a friend; he drives this truck everyday as his daily driver. 1955 first series are very rare, they have a 1 piece windshield from the factory, they have open drive-line rear axle, and a unique bed with flat top rails and raised/embossed bed sides.
This truck is a nice driver with a modern 292 inline Chevrolet 6cyl, an S-10 5 speed transmission, and the original rear-end. The Truck has a “Sids” (
4” dropped front axle with new Kingpins, new tapered tie-rod ends, a new tie rod and drag-link, new “Timken” tapered front wheel bearings, new rear brakes including drums, new dual reservoir master cylinder, 4” lowering blocks in the rear, and new exhaust. The truck also has a new 12 volt heater fan motor and 12volt electric 2spd wipers, all the lights work except the dome light (it’s a new dome light just not hooked up). All the gauges work except the fuel gauge, and the truck also has an all new 12 volt wiring harness. The heater core has not been hooked up as of yet. The truck has 225/70/16 tires on 16” steel wheels; it has an original rare blade rear bumper also. This truck has the indent in the L-rear fender for the spare but a non-spare tire L-fender is included with the truck.
The truck appears to have some old “bondo” in the cab corners and some rust in the L-front cab corner. The fenders and doors are very solid as is the bed. The driver side window needs installed and the passenger wing window is cracked. This truck is an un-restored nice truck with nice patina that can be driven daily as is or you could paint it and make it your own, but all the mechanicals on the truck are in great shape.
This truck is currently a daily driver and will cruise at 65-70 all day and gets around 19-20 miles per gallon.
The owner is only selling the truck because he has to replace his shop roof.
The reserve is 5,000.00 I think that is more than fair for a solid driver, which needs nothing to be enjoyed as is. Good luck and bid to own. The owner would like a cashier’s check or cash in person for the truck. The truck must be paid for before it is shipped
 Good luck and thank you for looking at my item.
Please check my other auctions often as I’m cleaning out my shop with 25+ years of accumulation. I will also be selling more cars and project cars.     
Due to the fact that this is a 50+ year old used truck and I can not control how it will be used by the new owner there is no warranty or returns. This truck is sold as-is. What I have listed and what you see on the truck in the pictures is what I have and what you get.
I will need a $500.00 non-refundable deposit within 48hrs of sale, and then balance must be paid in full within 10 days of end of auction. If not paid within 10 days the truck will be re-listed and deposit not returned. (I will work with you if there is a good excuse. I will not lower price though). I will not charge storage on the truck, if the truck is paid for it can be stored at my home for awhile (1 or 2 months, not a year) until shipping is arranged. 
I will not arrange shipping for the truck that is up to you the buyer but I will work with you and your shipper in any way I can.

Steve McQueen's last movie car, now Pawn Stars-owned, up for auction [w/video]

Sun, 03 Feb 2013 17:03:00 EST

The last car Steve McQueen ever drove in a movie is officially up for auction. The 1951 Chevrolet Styline DeLuxe Convertible you see above is now owned by none other than Rick Harrison of Pawn Stars fame, but once ferried McQueen around the set of his last film, 1980's The Hunter. That flick saw the Bullit star play a bumbling bounty hunter and didn't exactly set the box office on fire. McQueen bought the car after production wrapped, and four years later it sold at his estate sale at the Imperial Palace in Las Vegas.
Flash forward to 2003, and the convertible received a full restoration back to near-stock specifications. Hagerty Insurance estimates the car to be worth around $45,000 without the significant providence. Given its ties to one of film's most popular gearheads, the old Chevrolet could fetch up to 10 times that when it goes under the gavel in Ft Luaderdale, Florida on March 22. You can head over to the Auctions America site for more information. You can also check out the trailer for The Hunter below.

GM warning 800,000 owners that their cars may need oil changes more frequently than they say

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:32:00 EST

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.'s latest test results in a familiar winner [w/video]

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 16:58:00 EST has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.
Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.
