Up for auction is one 1993 Chevy S10 King Cab Pickup. This has been a project of mine for the past year or so. It is only for sale because I have acquired an S10 Blazer project and can't keep both. This truck has been my daily driver and parts hauler for my street rod business since I have owned it. I wouldn't be afraid to drive it anywhere. The truck itself has just over 198,000 miles but the engine has been replaced. I was told it was a GM replacement but I have NO proof of that all I can tell you is that at a 3,000 mile oil change the oil is still brown, not dirty and black, and that it doesn't use oil between changes. It is fuel injected and runs, drives, idles excellent. It drives like the ones I had back in the 90's when they were new. I believe it has the original clutch in it and I have not replaced that. I have spent over $3,000 on it in the time I have owned it. I intended to put a V8 in it but after seeing how good it runs and finding that it gets 24-25MPG hwy, I decided to leave the engine alone. The AC has been converted to 134a and has a VERY slow leak. It could stand Freon right now. The AC was charged almost a year ago and it has taken until now to leak down. My intent was to gas it and leave it alone since it stayed up almost a year. Under the hood is very clean and the exposed surfaces of the motor are still aluminum colored not oily and dirty. The following are the new parts I have installed since I owned it:

 

17x7 American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels with 215/45 and 235/55 Nexen tires ( approximately 3,000 miles )

Western Chassis 2" drop spindles

Western Chassis 2" drop coils

3" rear drop blocks

Front Brake Hoses

Front Ceramic Brake Pads

Inner and outer wheel bearings

Brake Rotors

Wheel Seals

Front Shocks

New Rear Window Rubber (Replaced Sliding Window with a flat glass)

New Pop Out King Cab Window hardware (pivots and latch hardware, screws, etc)

Tinted Windows

New Tailpipe (muffler had been replaced when I bought it)

Grille

Front Marker Lights

Front Parking Lights

Taillights

Front Smooth Bumper

Blazer Rear Bumper

Aluminum Fender Trim

Billet Specialties Shifter

Outside mirrors replaced with smaller style mirrors

It just had the oil changed and a new air filter installed

Front air dam

Drivers side door hinge pins and bushings.

The interior is what you would expect from a 1993 truck with 198K miles. The seats aren't torn but they are stained in places and the carpet also has some stains. The cloth on the door panels could stand attention. The pics of the interior are worth a thousand words.

 

Over all this is a really good truck you can go to a cruise in as is or you could continue to make a few improvements and have a really nice truck. It gets compliments everywhere we take it and when we wanna hit a cruise in and leave the old car at home, we have been driving the S10. Its very comfortable and cruises at highway speeds no problem. It never runs hot. It drips a small drip from the trans seal but that's all. The rearend seems to be fine and doesn't make noise.

 

The only problems I know with the truck are the following:

It has had the king cab jump seats removed. I intended to put the speakers in the sides of the cab but didn't get that completed

The headliner board is out and will be included so the new owner can re-cover it or LMC has the updated ABS plastic one.

It has rust  (Visible but not holes) in the left lower cab corner that will need addressed if the truck is painted. Right now you don't really notice it when the truck is sitting unless you get down and look.

The AC needs Freon as mentioned above

It has its share of dings and scratches you'd expect for its age. Its had the plastic bed liner removed which shows typical rubbing on the bed ribs from the liner. The bed isn't beat up and dented up though. I had intended to do a spray in. The body has some shallow dents that aren't easy to get a photo to show and that aren't visible in all light conditions.

 

This is a really solid truck and I have done my best to describe it fairly and accurately. I believe in fair eBay listings.  I have looked for a good king cab for a long time and this is the one I chose. That speaks for its condition. I have owned many of these.  Its better than 95% of the ones you will find of its age. I wouldn't be selling it if I hadn't found an S10 Blazer just as solid. If you are local, come have a look, bring cash and someone to drive your old truck home because you will buy this truck! If you have questions call 423-823-2111 before 10PM EST and I will be glad to talk to you and/or answer your questions. I have a reserve set for the truck and the Buy It Now price. You would be hard pressed to find one then put this much new stuff on it, for the Buy It Now price.


Truck sold AS IS WHERE IS. It is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end this auction at any time. Continental US Bidders only. Shipping is the responsibility of the buyer and I will try and make it easy for your shipper to pickup as I can. Payment is by cash in person or wire transfer ONLY. Title will NOT BE RELEASED until payment is made in FULL. Thanks for looking.

GM won't pay owners of recalled cars for lost value

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:30:00 EST

Kenneth Feinberg, the man in charge of the General Motors compensation fund dealing with the its widespread ignition switch woes, has issued an informal, two-letter response to the plaintiffs in more than 70 lawsuits seeking redress for lost resale value of their Cobalts: "No." The cases were recently combined into one, but Feinberg told The Detroit News that the fund will deal "only with death and physical injury claims," and that "perceived diminished value" will get no consideration.
ALG, the firm specializing in establishing residual values, determined that Cobalt owners had lost $300 compared to the segment competition and doesn't envision any long-term effects from the recall situation. Feinberg's statement comes in advance of public details on how the compensation fund will work and adheres to GM's long-held position on the matter. The company has already asked a judge to throw out such suits using the pre-bankruptcy defense, even as it stopped using that defense in cases of injury and death.
With plenty of potential gain from the GM suit, however, don't expect the plaintiffs to give up yet. When Toyota was sued for the same reason during the unintended acceleration debacle, it eventually settled the case for between $1 billion and $1.4 billion just to get it over with. Since the 85 law firms involved in the Toyota litigation took home more than $250 million of that total, we shouldn't expect the attorneys to give up on a GM payout, either.

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.

New Bright creating exclusive 1:8 scale radio-controlled C7 Corvette

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 17:45:00 EST

If you want a new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette but can't quite save up enough pennies for the monthly payment, we have good news for you. Toymaker New Bright has pulled the covers off of its 1:8 scale remote-controlled version of the American sports car. Complete with a very detailed interior and LED headlights, this large-scale R/C is as close as most of us will ever come to having one of the menacing Chevrolet models to call our very own. New Bright still hasn't released pricing or availability, but word has it the coupe should hit the market soon.
Right now, it appears as if the C7 will hit shelves in Torch Red, though we don't know if other colors are planned as well. The good news is that New Bright isn't exactly turning its back on the old C6 - representatives say the company will continue to make its popular C6R racecar for those who prefer round taillights.
