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

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.

Who sold the most heavy-duty pickups in 2012? PickupTrucks.com investigates

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 08:44:00 EST

Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.
So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.

GM warning 800,000 owners that their cars may need oil changes more frequently than they say

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:32:00 EST

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.
As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.

2015 Chevrolet Cruze spied on its home turf

Tue, 23 Apr 2013 17:30:00 EST

The next Chevrolet Cruze isn't set to go into production for about another year, and we're just now seeing prototypes of the new compact running around here in the States. Not much more has been revealed since we saw the car blasting through the snow in Europe, but we can still clearly see new design elements like the larger grille, slimmer headlamps and redesigned taillamps.
Our spy photographers worked up a composite image of this Cruze prototype alongside the current model, and here, we can clearly see some big visual changes are in store for the new model. The 2015 Cruze's hood slopes downward more dramatically, the windshield is more heavily raked, and the roofline looks more fluid overall. The next-generation Cruze will ride on the new global Delta platform that will also underpin other General Motors vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt and Equinox.
As for what's under the hood, we expect the normal range of gasoline four-cylinder engines (both naturally aspirated and turbocharged), and the compact's new turbodiesel four should carry over, as well. Have a look at the full brace of spy photos in the gallery above.
