It is totally original except for noted recent work done. Truck was owned since new June '58 by a Kansas farmer. It was used on the farm and trips to town only until 1984 when they bought a new Chevy truck, it was then parked in the barn and still has the 1984 Kansas farm tags on it! We have the original title. She is a 3600 heavy duty stepside long bed. At some point the 17" split rims were replaced with 19.5" tubeless tires. The light blue paint is original, with light surface rust, and 2 rust areas behind front wheel wells. The patina is awesome. This truck also has the original interior, rubber floor mats, 235 6cyl "thrift master" engine, 4 speed transmission, spare tire, wood bed, optional wood side rail extensions, and the original owners manual in the glove box. This week: new gas tank, new brakes and master, new battery, new plugs and wires, new fuel pump, clean carb, etc. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! ALL ORIGINAL!"
My son and I bought this truck at the farm auction in the barn where it sat 39 years. We transported it by trailer to our mechanic who specializes in old Chevys. We love this truck, but he is expecting a baby and I have too many other projects now, so she goes up for auction: Odometer shows 12,489 miles, actual could be 112,489, but this farmer did not drive except to town maybe once a week at most, a 20 mile trip.

The current wait time for a new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is well, not short. With word of a strike at the Bowling Green, KY factory responsible for seventh-generation sports car, though, that wait time could end up growing substantially.

Now, a strike is still a ways off. UAW Local 2164, which represents the 800 workers responsible for screwing the Corvette together, is set to vote on authorizing a strike today, but even if the employees give the action a go, it's far from a sure thing. According to The Tennessean, both regional and national union officials would need to put their stamp of approval on strike action.
"The membership has to vote to strike, but it's just a step in the process," said Gary Casteel, the UAW's Region 8 director and one of the people that would need to authorize a strike action. Casteel told The Tennessean, "It's purely a local situation, though. They are having some issues with the local management."
Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.

So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.
