1994 Chevy Chevrolet LS S10 S 10 4WD long bed pickup truck TRADE BARTER TRADES ?

 

I’m selling this truck to go back to a short bed  2wd version vehicle.

Possible trades and cash will be considered for the following newer vehicles:

  • Saturn Vue 2wd
  • Honda Pilot or CRV 2wd
  • Toyota Tacoma or smaller pickups 2wd
  • Ford Ranger 2wd
  • And possibly????  2wdJ.

 I rarely if ever use 4wd so I really don’t need it. And the 4wd on this vehicle works fine.

 

Let it be known, I will not use the word “loaded” when describing this truck.

I have no idea why dealers use this word unless a vehicle has “all” available options on the vehicle. Your comments on “loaded” will be kindly acknowledged.

 I’m not a dealer as this truck has been a daily commuter to the office for almost 4 years.

 Everything works on this truck. If it had an electrical or mechanical issue, it was properly & promptly repaired by this old time engineer.

 The overall condition is very good for a truck of this age. All original except for the normal wear & tear mechanical parts that were replaced for preventive & corrective maintenance reasons. Any parts that were replaced where high quality & not low cost run of the mill replacement parts for reliability purposes. I don't believe in taking shortcuts. 

 Keep in mind, this is a 1994 and some maintenance will be needed from time to time (like any other vehicle).

 Low miles for it’s age…<133K miles !!!

 Always parked & stored in a heated garage when not in use.

 Solid, straight body with (can I say this) no rust.

The undercarriage does have spots of light surface rust as well as the full length box/ladder frame. It has been treated with carwell rust proofing treatment by a local Mercedes mechanic to protect all exterior panels.

 The passenger side lower door does have a slight crease/scratch as seen in the pictures. No perforations or rust on this area. This crease was on the vehicle when I purchased the vehicle approximately 4 years ago.

 The interior is in near excellent condition. The seat have always been covered to protect the original upholstery. The is a small hole on the drivers seat door edge by the seat belt area but otherwise no further damage.

 This vehicle has the “known” & obvious options:

  • Vortec VIN W V6 engine.
  • Optional full gauge instrument cluster.
  • Intermittent windshield wipers.
  • 4 Wheel drive non-electronic shift package (very reliable).
  • Automatic transmission with overdrive (very smooth)
  • AM/FM cassette
  • Overhead illuminated vanity lights
  • Map lights
  • Tow package with the optional vortec v6 ????? I don’t know for sure. I have towed one large u-haul trailer down state once with no issues & plenty of power to climb hills in 2wd.

 Overall, this truck does not have all the electrical, convenience options however, this is what makes this truck very reliable from a mechanical standpoint.  

 When this vehicle was purchased approximately 4 years ago, our local GM dealer changed ALL the fluids (excluding the power steering fluid). This included the gearcases & transmission & coolant flush.

The fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel injection spider assembly & cat back exhaust was also replaced by a local GM dealer 3 years ago.

Newer all season Michelin radial truck tires. Brake pads, rotors, shoes & calipers replaced last year.

This truck has always utilized Mobile 1 synthetic 5w-30 motor oil & premium micronic grade oil filter. Does not use or burn oil.

I would feel very comfortable driving this truck anywhere across country as the radiator, water pump, all coolant hoses, coolant, Delco heavy duty battery, idler pulleys (2), vacuum lines & serpentine drive belt was replaced last summer.

 This quality truck does have zerk fitted grease joints not found on newer trucks.

***The only issue with this truck (since I purchased it approximately 4 years ago), is the play in the steering. The steering does not pull at highways speeds but in heavy winds, 1/2 inch CW and/or CCW steering correction will need to be exerted lightly to keep the vehicle going straight, at highway speeds in heavy winds. The looseness in the steering has been isolated down to the power steering gearbox. I have not replaced the gearbox but it is available @ Rock auto for $90+ including core charge. This is a common issue with old chevy trucks (as my old 1989 Silverado had this characteristic also) but easy to remedy by replacing the steering gearbox (unless there is an adjustment I don’t know about).


NOTE:

The buyer will ultimately be responsible for pickup & applicable shipping arrangements of this nice truck from my location.

I will assist the buyer in the paperwork from this location but not delivery of this vehicle from my location.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST

Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.
Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.
Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.

There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
