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.

Chevrolet planning low-cost Corvette under Stingray?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST

If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.

Mother's Day Suggestion No. 2,506

Thu, 02 May 2013 19:59:00 EST

With Mother's Day coming up, we're always looking for new gift ideas to celebrate the occasion, but hot laps around a track might not be the best suggestion for Darius Khashabi. In a video posted on YouTube, Khashabi straps his mom into the passenger seat of his C6 Corvette Z06 for some laps around Sonoma Raceway (formerly Infineon Raceway) at "60 percent" with comical results.
Now this isn't the first time Mama Khashabi has gotten seat time in her son's car around a track, as his YouTube page shows him pulling a similar stunt - with similar results - around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca last year. Scroll down for the video, but know that the action really gets going at around the 1:40 mark.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:31:00 EST

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.
