Here is a 1954 Chevy pick up with a four speed hydramatic transmission, a VERY RARE OPTION. It has an original 235 six cylinder solid lifter, full pressure oil system engine. It has been completely rebuilt with Chevy 350 ex. valves and hard seats installed for unleaded gas. It has the RARE 15 inch wheels with 5 new P235 75 R15 tires. It has been converted to 12 volt with a GM alternator. It has Fenton dual exhaust manifolds with a custom two into one stainless muffler and sounds great.The gas tank has been changed to under the bed with a flush mounted cap in the bed. The bed and tail gate are in near perfect condition. The cab and fenders have had body work done that was done to nice DRIVER quality. The paint job is nice driver quality. The bed wood is solid.It has a new aluminum radiator and never over heats. It has been completely rewired and all the lights work.The distributor has been upgraded with a pertronix electronic unit. It starts up fast and every time even when it is cold. The temp gauge and oil gauge work but don't read correctly. I installed a manual gauge to show the accurate oil pressure. SEE PICTURES. The gas gauge has been replaced with one that is compatable with the new tank.The interior is clean and nice. ALL the glass has been replaced.
The transmission shifts hard going into third gear. I have been told that it can be adjusted and is common. The transmission does NOT slip.
The truck is being sold at auction as is where is. The sale is final so be sure it is what you want before you bid. There is no warranty of any kind on any part of the truck. I will not handle shipping on the truck. This is up to you or pick it up yourself.
Under NO condition will the truck leave until it is paid in full. NO ACCEPTIONS. If you want to test drive it, and I suggest you do, send me a message with your phone # and we can set up a time for that.
I installed a Carter YF carburetor in place of the old Rochester. It has more power and responds better but it runs a little rich. This is probably do to the 5000 foot altitude here. It may be just fine at your altitude so I did not try to change it.
American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.
The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.
GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.
Put away your pixel paintbrushes, kids. Pack up your Photoshop. This is the real-deal 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible in its first official images. The droptop Chevrolet will roll into the bright lights of the Palexpo exhibition at next week's Geneva Motor Show, a four-wheeled statement of intent that General Motors is serious about taking its Corvette franchise global.
Chevy isn't providing anything in the way of further details with these two shots, but we've learned at least a couple of things about the car shown here. First off, the example seen in these images is fitted with the optional Z51 Performance Package - something that isn't immediately evident because there's no sign of the coupe model's prominent ductwork on its rear haunches. In order to accommodate the power folding hard tonneau cover, the vents that feed the transmission and differential coolers have been relocated to the underside of the car. The dark paint color on this example also does a good job of muting the contrasting black front fender vents and hood opening - Z51-spec design details that have proven to be somewhat controversial.
One other thing to note: These two shots also display the Stingray wearing different alloy wheels than the split five-spoke design shown at the hardtop's Detroit Auto Show unveiling in January. The simpler, thin five-spoke wheels should do a good job of showing off the Z51's upgraded brakes, and they'll be optional on the coupe as well.
The Performance Data Recorder with Valet Mode available on the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seems like a fantastic tool for many owners. Whether they are taking 720p video while lapping the track in their new 'Vette, or just want to protect their purchase from inconsiderate joyriders, the system offers a lot of functionality in one package. However, one of the PDR's features might get buyers in trouble with the law, and it has nothing to do with recording some illicit high-speed driving on a favorite back road. The problem hinges on the various state laws concerning a person's right to privacy.
According to a letter posted by Jalopnik, Chevy dealers are asking 2015 Corvette owners not to use the Valet Mode portion of the PDR because it records audio in the cabin, in addition to performance specs. That's a problem because privacy laws vary from state to state with some requiring just one side's consent to tape sound and others requiring all parties to agree. According Jalopnik, 15 states mandate everyone's permission beforehand, but it's not clear whether these numbers are up to date. (Actually, the report varies, saying 13 states in some places and 15 in a list.)
According to the letter, Chevy is already working on a software update for the near future to rectify the issue. It's possible that simply adding a warning to drivers and the ability to turn off the audio recording function in Valet Mode might solve the problem. Obviously, this doesn't preclude Corvette drivers from using the performance aspect of the PDR, and owners are free tape lap after lap at the track.
