THIS IS A VERY SOLID 1957 CHEVY 4 X4 THAT RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT

THE OLD GIRL HAS GREAT BONES AND WOULD BE A GREAT CANIDATE FOR A FULL RESTORE OR YOU COULD DRIVE IT AS SHE SITS AND WORK ON HER A LITTLE AT A TIME.

I BELIEVE THIS IS A FACTORY 4X4 NAPCO,BUT I DONT KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT THEM TO BE 100% SURE.

I RAN THE VIN NUMBERS ON THE FRAME AND CAB AND THEY BOTH MATCH(3A57W109199) BUT IT DIDNT TELL ME IF IT WAS FACTORY 4 WHEEL DRIVE.

IT DOES HAVE THE PLATE ON THE DASH SHOWING HOW TO PUT THE TRUCK INTO 4 WHEEL DRIVE(SEE PIC),AND IT LOOKS AS OLD AS THE TRUCK DOES,DOESNT LOOK AS IF WAS ADDED LOOKS FACTORY TO ME.

I THINK THIS OLD CHEVY STARTED OUT AS A UTILITY SERVICE TRUCK FOR PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC CO (PG&E) UP HERE IN THE FOOTHILLS AS U NEED 4 WHEEL DRIVE UP HERE. AND SOMEONE SAVED IT FROM THE CRUSHER.

THIS IS WHAT I DO KNOW ABOUT THE TRUCK WHEN I DID A LITTLE RESEARCH.

NOW STEP AHEAD 50 YRS...IT NOW HAS BEEN UPGRADED WITH A CHEVROLET SMALL BLOCK V8...AND HEADERS,FLOWMASTERS...HEI. IGNITION,ELEBROCK INTAKE,CHROME UPGRADED FUEL PUMP,HOLLEY CARB.,

WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR ON DRIVERS SIDE YOU CAN SEE A FEW LITTLE SPOTS OF RUST THRU (SEE PICS) ITS NOTHING MAJOR BUT I WANTED TO POINT IT OUT,IT IS VERY SLOID WHEN YOU STEP UP INTO THE TRUCK.AND IM NOT A SMALL GUY.

ALSO THE FLOOR ON THE PASSENGERS SIDE HAS A COPULE OF SMALL RUST THRU SPOTS ANOUT THE SIZE OF A PENCIL TIP YOU CAN JUST START TO SEE LIGHT THRU IN A FEW SPOTS(SEE PICS)

CAB CORNERS LOOK AS IF THEY HAVE BEEN WORKED ON BUT TO WHAT EXTENT I HAVE NO IDEA.

THE TRUCK HAS A LIGHT COAT OF GREY PRIMER ON IT OVER THE FACTORY TAN AND BROWN (PG&E COLORS) TO KEEP IT FROM RUSTING I DID NOT DO THIS IT WAS THIS WAY WHEN I GOT THE TRUCK

MOTOR HAS GREAT OIL PRESSURE,AND STARTS RIGHT UP NO ISSUES.(THE CARB SEEMS TO BE RUNNING A LITTLE FAT) AND SHOULD BE DIALED IN OR REBUILT OR REPLACED..I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HOLLEY

 CARBS.,IF I KEPT IT I WOULD BOLT UP A NEW EDELBROCK CARB AND BE DONE WITH IT.

EXTERIOR..

BODY LOOKS SUPRISING STRAIGHT IT HAS HAD SOME WORK DONE TO IT OVER THE YRS.BUT COULD STAND MORE IN SOME PLACES(SEE PICS)

THE BED RAILS ARE NICE...THE TAIL GATE IS ALSO ORIGINAL AND IN SUPRISING SHAPE

THE FRONT WINDSHIELD IS OLD AND STARTING TO DELAMINATE AROUND THE EDGES BUT NO CRACKS AND ITS CLEAR.

THE CAB LOOKS PRETTY GOOD INSIDE AND OUT BUT I DONT KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN DONE AS FAR AS BODY WOK OR RUST REPAIR PRIOR TO ME OWNING THE TRUCK.

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.

More Corvette Stingray Factoids: Vanishing panel gaps and 26-mpg LT1

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 17:00:00 EST

During January's Detroit Auto Show, we managed a longer than expected wandering tag-team interview with C7 Corvette chief engineering exec Tadge Juechter (pictured above), and LT1 engine boss Jordan Lee (pictured below). They are, quite honestly, two of the very nicest bigshot lads to ever walk the engineering corridors of an American manufacturer. Both are enthralled by what they're doing for a day job. So are we.
We've followed the pre-sale anticipation for the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray like an Oreck vacuum yanking every speck of dirt from a well-trampled carpet. Everything is reportable and contains a grain of further knowledge about this dramatically important and cheered-for car, as it continues to be pressured into representing all that is superior about the American dream. The Corvette wears one heavy cloak.
So, most of what was talked about has been expertly reported already right here on Autoblog. But, looking through our notes again, both Jeuchter and Lee added facts to the buzzing mix.

Chevy SS prototype spotted wearing Pontiac G8 clothes

Tue, 28 Aug 2012 17:14:00 EST


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.
