Up for auction is a 1955 Chevy pickup. She isn't the prettiest thing on the block, but here she is! Looks like an amateur restoration in progress. This is a project that needs work. Truck had some rust in the typical areas and was somewhat repaired. From what I can tell, the cab was sandblasted and metal work has been done. I cant say how much or how well it was done, but I can see some new metal and welds from underneath. Looks to be a solid project truck. I did some small stuff to the truck, and reprimered it. The windows are blacked out and all need to be replaced. They were all cracked and partially sandblasted. There is a piece of metal welded in the inner upper windshield area and it looks like the typical outer section may need some attention before installing new glass. Its not as bad as some of the ones ive seen. The engine is a six cylinder that fires right up. I have it hooked to a small gas can. The tank needs to be flushed. I drove it a little, but there are no brakes and someone put a floor shifter in that is a pain to use. Truck has 4 17 inch wheels with decent tires. The bed is a floor is a piece of plywood and the inner bed and floors are done with a sprayed in bedliner. If the truck needs to be shipped, I will get one of the brakes working for loading and unloading on a transporter. Any questions or if you need more pics, call me at 570-299-1755. This truck is not one of the typical high quality trucks that I usually sell, therefore it is offered with no reserve and sold "as is" with no warranty of any kind. Feel free to shoot me an offer. I will add a few more pics as soon as I can. I have a clear Missouri title in hand for the truck. Good Luck!!!!

As promised, Chevrolet and GMC are offering a live webcast of the world premiere for the all-new 2014 Silverado 1500 and Sierra 1500. After being teased with spy shots and blurry images like the one above for ages, now is the time to see the trucks in the metal, for real (well, as 'real' as it gets on a webcast, at any rate).
Shift your eyes down just below to see the reveal as it happens, starting at 9:30 AM EST. We anticipate having loads of images full technical information to share after the webcast, too, so truck aficionados should stay tuned. We'll also be bringing you live images of both trucks too, when we see them on the show floor at next month's Detroit Auto Show.
A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?
