Drive Type: AUTOMATIC
Model: Other Pickups
Williamston, South Carolina, United States
Up for auction is this 1956 Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck. This truck has that perfect patina and stance everyone is looking for and turns heads everywhere it goes! The best part about it is it has all the modern amenities like V8 power, automatic transmission, power steering and power disc brakes! NOT the typical manual everything 3 on the tree that you have to fight down the road. This truck has been fitted to a cutlass frame and drives like a car going down the road. You can literally drive this truck down the road 65-70mph and let go of the wheel and it goes straight as an arrow. It is a very reliable truck. I just drove it roundtrip 400+ miles to the Shades of the past car show in Pigeon Forge TN last weekend without issue.(My wife actually drove it home so that speaks to how confident I am on this vehicle)
The 307 V8 engine is fed by a Quadrajet carb. It fires up the 1st time every time, and sounds great with its all new aluminized exhaust with Thrush muffler.(See Video Link Below) It rides on new Boss 338 wheels 18x7 up front and 18x9 in the rear. It has been lettered up as a shop truck and had the grill, bumpers, and headlight bezels painted in cream white to contrast the blue body. It just has so many cool features like the wood bed, chrome fuel cell, and Mexican blanket interior that includes the door and kick panels. Even modern tilt steering with the old 50s steering wheel fitted to it.
This truck is obviously no show truck and not being represented as such. It has some rust in the usual truck places, but is certainly no rust bucket and far better than most. However, it is a very cool old truck that is very reliable and I would drive it anywhere. I have had dozens of these old trucks with cut springs, lowered springs, and even air ride, but this one hands down rides the best.
Again, this is a reliable turn key truck that is ready to go anywhere. All it needs is a new owner. Please email or call with any questions you may have
-I reserve the right to end the auction early as I also have it for sale locally

Do not adjust your computer screen, you are not seeing the rebirth of the Pontiac brand. General Motors has chosen to use a G8 to disguise a test mule for the latest prototype of the forthcoming Chevrolet SS. The G8 was closely related to the Holden Commodore and Vauxhall VXR, the platform upon which the new Chevrolet performance model will be based. It should come as little surprise, then, that GM has opted to use the cladding from the former G8.
Thought the front clip of this mule is pure Pontiac, note the vents immediately behind the front wheel. That is a distinctive design hallmark of the Vauxhall VXR. Also note that this vehicle is right-hand drive, as the Holden and its Chevy counterpart will be very closely related. That likely includes potential drivetrains. The spy photos of this mule also reveal very wide rear tires, and rear wheels that do not match the fronts.
Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.
We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
