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!!

Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free Camaro diecasts

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 19:29:00 EST

There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.
To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.

Chevy to show redesigned Captiva in Geneva, will it come to US rental lots?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 08:46:00 EST

Unless you're renting a car or driving through Orlando, Florida (the rental car capital of the US), you'll probably never see a Chevrolet Captiva - the rebadged, fleet-only version of the old Saturn Vue - on our roads, but this crossover is popular in many other parts of the world. As such, Chevrolet announced that the Captiva will be getting an update for 2013, which will be unveiled next week at the Geneva Motor Show.
Coming off a pretty extensive refresh in 2011, the 2013 model year will bring even more changes to the Captiva like LED taillights, new 18-inch wheels and revised fascias with a new grille and fog lights up front and inset chrome exhaust outlets at the rear. New interior features include heated rear seats, dual-zone climate control as well as available options on some of the upper trim levels such as leather seating and keyless entry and start. We have yet to hear back from Chevrolet as to whether or not the updated Captiva will be making its way to a rental lot near you, as the model is only available in the US to fleet buyers.
Alongside the updated Captiva, Chevy is also showing off its new Trax in Europe, where the subcompact crossover will go on sale this spring. GM's press release for these two Geneva-bound models is posted below.

Hot Wheels Camaro to make big debut at Indy

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 13:45:00 EST

Chevrolet handed over the keys to 33 Hot Wheels Camaro Convertible Indianapolis 500 festival cars this week. Race directors get the luxury of driving the droptops around Indianapolis in an ongoing tradition with roots all the way back to the 1960s. The stunt is supposed to remind area residents that the Indy 500 is right around the corner. The cars are our first look at the special Camaro Hot Wheels Edition in convertible form, and they are slated to head to dealers after a one-time production run. The cars also represent the first time in history full-size Hot Wheels have been offered for sale by an automaker.
The cars will be available in both the previously seen coupe bodystyle and this convertible configuration, and will feature metallic blue paint and special wheels with the iconic redline accent. Buyers will be able to choose between the V6-powered 2LT trim and the V8-powered 2SS guise.
Hot Wheels says the original Custom Camaro toy was one of the original 16 1:64-scale diecasts, and it remains one of the company's most valuable collector items today.
