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 truck drives and steers great for an old truck. The brakes were redone and work fine.
The hood is another story. At some time someone has welded the seam to make it a one piece hood. It was not done properly and is warped and does not fit well. A nice used hood is included that will need finish body work and paint. The hood now latches fine and does not't affect the driving. It just looks bad.
I have tried to describe the truck as accurately as I can. If you have any questions please ask and I will do my best to answer


On Jul-11-13 at 17:47:19 PDT, seller added the following information:

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.

There is a small dent in the right rear fender. My fault, backing out of my garage. It is minor and dosen't even show in the pictures.
Most of the work was done by a previous owner and I am repeating what was told to me. The previous owner built the truck for his daughter to drive to high school. The truck was rebuilt here in Payson AZ.


On Jul-11-13 at 18:03:30 PDT, seller added the following information:

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.



On Jul-11-13 at 18:21:37 PDT, seller added the following information:

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.

Why the Corvette's Performance Data Recorder can be illegal in some states

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 13:28:00 EST

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.

Was the C7 Corvette cut from Beyonce's Super Bowl halftime show?

Tue, 05 Feb 2013 11:01:00 EST

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.

Chevy confirms Corvette Stingray Convertible for Geneva

Thu, 07 Feb 2013 16:31:00 EST

Want proof that General Motors has increased global ambitions for its 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray? It's staging the world premiere of the model's convertible variant at the Geneva Motor Show early next month.
As previously rumored, the droptop rendered above will debut at the Swiss show, making its first appearance anywhere on March 5. According to Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet, the location makes sense because Corvette "...is an icon that has long been recognized and admired even in countries where it's never officially been offered."
While neither Chevrolet nor the Corvette has a major sales presence in Switzerland, the Bowtie's European headquarters is located in Zurich (about three hours to the northeast of Geneva) and GM has made it clear that it wants to build the Chevrolet brand up across Europe.
