The windshield and driver/passenger glass will need to be replaced. Bench seat needs restoration, fuel tank has rust holes, but is commonly replaced since originally located inside the cab. It will need restoration but the body is in solid shape, and I have all the original pieces of chrome, that has been re-chromed to look new again. I have $3,000 invested in the chrome alone. 327 V-8 Engine did run, but has been filled with oil and stored for 10 years."
1959 Fleetside "Double Deluxe" Chevy Apache Pick-up truck. RARE find with every piece of chrome included, even the strips on the bullets (along both sides of the bed.) This truck has a clear Texas Title, V-8 4 barrel carb 327, with 3 on the tree (column shift). I had most of the chrome re-chromed professionally for $3,000. The chrome has been stored indoors for about 10 years and is in great shape. One minor problem was one strip of chrome for the bed has been bent, but can be repaired easy enough. This truck has everything and isn't missing any major parts, it just need to be restored. Pictures taken do not show the wheels, but I do have them. Just needs tires.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
Spy photographers have caught what looks like the next-generation Chevrolet Cruze out on snow patrol. The camo could be tricking our eyes, but it look like it has an even tidier, more rounded front end and even lower fenders in relation to the top of the hood. And either a chunk of camo has been wedged between the side mirrors and the doors, or the mirrors are up for revision, too.

The door handles have been moved up the side of the car, leading the way to a rear end that grows a bit in length. If the rumors are true, the coming second-generation Cruze sits on the new D2XX platform that will replace the Delta and Theta platforms at General Motors. A global architecture, the Cruze will be the first to get it, but it will underpin everything from next Chevrolet Volt to the Equinox and could be responsible for 2.5 million units by 2018. The next Cruze is expected to begin production in GM's Lordstown, Ohio plant in the third quarter of 2014.
Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.
