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.

ORIGINAL 3100 SHORTBED...ORIGINALLY CAME WITH A 6 CYLINDER...ORIGINAL 4 SPD TRUCK WITH GRANNY LOW .

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.,

CHROME VALVE COVERS,MOROSO AIR CLEANER,AND A NICE ALUM. RADIATOR.

ALSO A BRAND NEW BATTERY (12 VOLT) AND BATTERY TRAY.

NEW FUEL TANK AND SENDING UNIT IN CAB.

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 BED WOOD IS GONE AND HAS A PIECE OF 3/4" PLYWOOD IN THE FLOOR IT WORKS....

THE FENDERS ARE IN GOOD SHAPE I CANT FIND ANY REAL RUST EXCEPT FOR THE RUST I POINTED OUT ALREADY AND A FEW PICS OF THE BED SIDES WHERE IT MEETS THE STEP.(SEE PICS)

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.

IT LOOKS AS IF IT HAS A ANTENNA MOUNTED IN THE ROOF AT 1 TIME AND A CAB MOUNT RADIO ATTENA AT REAR ABOVE THE REAR WINDOW(IM GUESSING A PG&E CO.RADIO WAS IN THE TRUCK AT ONE TIME)

2014 Chevy Silverado priced from *$24,585, V8 gets better economy than Ford EcoBoost V6

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 13:27:00 EST

Chevrolet has thrown down the next hand in the pickup truck poker wars and revealed at least a couple of potential aces - depending on which numbers matter most to you. The 2014 2014 Silverado 1500 with its 5.3-liter EcoTec3 V8 gets 335 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic, can tow 11,500 pounds with the optional Max Trailer Package and costs the same as the outgoing Silverado, $24,585 (*including $995 destination fee). Chevy says the Silverado also stands atop the fuel economy charts when comparing any competitor with a V8 engine - and some competitors with V6 engines. The two-wheel drive model returns 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined in two-wheel drive guise and 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined as a four-wheel drive.
For context around those numbers, the most fuel efficient V8-powered 2013 Ford F-150 pickups lose about two mpg in every metric compared to the Silverado, the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost returning 16 city, 18 highway and 22 combined in two-wheel drive. However, that EcoBoost does have 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. You can get a Ram 1500 with a 3.6-liter V6 that gets 25 mpg highway, but it has 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of torque. The 2013 Ram with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 and its 395 hp and 407 lb-ft drops one mpg in every category to the Silverado. Its tow rating is 200 pounds beyond its nearest competitor, the F-150 with the Max Trailer Tow Package.
Elsewhere, the new Silverado gets a quieter cab with a redesigned interior, a new bed with improved load-management possibilities, disc brakes all around, tweaked steering and suspension, along with free standard scheduled maintenance for two years or 24,000 miles.

Corvette Stingray Convertible images mysteriously appear on web, so we add our own

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 13:29:00 EST

It was inevitable that we'd see the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray topless at some point, but that didn't make us any less interested when a pair of supposedly leaked official images showed up on theautoinsiderblog.com last week. We posted them on our Facebook page, but held off reporting on them here until we could get a little more information.
Those images, which feature a dark red car on a sterile black studio background, supposedly first appeared on the website of diecast model maker Maisto. A Chevrolet spokesman has been reported saying that they are "not official images released by Chevrolet PR," which isn't a denial they're the real deal, but neither is it a confirmation.
Close examination of the photos suggest they could be official shots of the Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while some have doubted their authenticity due to a lack of vents (which were seen on the C7s that debuted in Detroit last week), it could be that the images are of a base model car without the Z51 package that doesn't require the extra venting and cooling.

Race Recap: 2013 Indianapolis 500 better than Bollywood; all the emotion, none of the music [spoilers]

Mon, 27 May 2013 18:55:00 EST

If the 2013 Indy 500 were a movie it would be the one expected to win all the little statues come awards season, and if it were an athlete it would have made spectators watch in awe as it broke record after record. And this kind of talk comes after last year's race was considered one of the best ever - the last lap hijinks in 2012 and Takuma Sato's crash leading to a podium ceremony straight out of a Golden Globes tearjerker.
But this year's race delivered more than anyone expected, from the 250,000 fans to the commentators to the IndyCar series itself and, finally, to the guy who hopped through a two-mile window on Lap 197 to take the lead and keep it until the end.
