1955 first series 1/2 ton, purchased new at Theo Money Chevrolet here in Waldron, I am the fifth owner. This truck is very solid, has accumulated a few "beauty marks"  and the perfect surface patina that only time can produce, but in my opinion is very straight for its age. It would be an easy restoration, or just enjoy it the way it is.

Engine - 235 inline six, starts and runs great, no smoke or leaks.  I removed/cleaned the fuel tank, installed new sending unit, cleaned fuel line, installed new filler neck hoses, new filter, cleaned carburetor, installed new points/condenser, and battery.  Needs new muffler/tail pipe.

Transmission - Clutch works great, transmission is quiet and shifts as it should. Very small leak on tail housing shaft where drive shaft yolk sips in (very easy fix, just install new seal).

Brakes - Stops ok, little soft. I have rebuilt the master cylinder. I would recommend to pull drums and inspect the shoes and wheel cylinders.

Body - Very solid. I pulled what was left of the floor mat out and cleaned and treated with POR-15, looks good.  Cab corners have some rust bubbles coming thru.  Body has a few dings here and there, the worst being a crease in front of driver's door on side cowl.  Still has original wood in bed and solid for the most part.  Grille is dented mainly on lower "bull nose." I installed new cowl vent rubber and drain hose.  I also have the spare tire that will be included, I think it looks better without it. 

Electrical - Converted to 12 volt, headlights, park lights, tail lights, brake lights, dash lights, dome light, and heater all work.  All gauges work with the exception of fuel gauge.

Glass - Has all original glass, few glass bubbles around edges of door glass.  Door glass rolls up and down with ease.  Will need new window felts and rubber around doors and windshield.

Interior - Truck ordered with rare unison (ride control) seat.  Still has most of the original cover, but needs to be redone.  Needs headliner, door panels and floor mat.  I installed new glove box liner.  Dash is all "uncut" original and in great shape.  Ignition key still fits glove box lock and door locks.

Feel free to contact me with any questions @ 479-207-2946, 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. CST or through Ebay messages.  Buyer is responsible for shipping.  I will be happy to assist in loading.  $500 deposit required within 24 hours of auction end, remainder of balance due within 7 days of auction end.  Payment must clear before pickup.  Thanks for looking!!

Auto blog'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.

Race Recap: 2013 Twelve Hours of Sebring, cakewalk up front, grindfest out back [w/spoilers]

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 09:33:00 EST

This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.
Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...

First 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray spotted crashed in the wild

Tue, 12 Feb 2013 21:47:00 EST

This restyled blue 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is wearing manufacturer plates, and it appears to be the same one seen around the internet in various pictures lately. This crash is likely not part of the Chevrolet testing regimen, however. Digital Corvettes forum member gpetry posted the shot with a note: "got this picture e-mailed from a friend in Arizona last week..." No circumstances are given, other than the incident occurred in the thick of a set of curvy roads, and the coupe ping-ponged off a guardrail and into the rock wall. Hopefully everyone involved in the incident walked away.
It may not be a pretty thing to see, a crashed sports car that's not even available for sale yet, but rest easy. Many pre-production cars are used for development and then unceremoniously crushed and scrapped, anyway. If that's the case here, that makes this wrecked 'Vette less of a tragedy and more of a case of exceptional efficiency.
