Custom 1996 Chevy Silverado 1500 Stepside Pickup 4x4 4wd 5.7l Vortec on 2040-cars
paint is still excellent
Washington, Iowa, United States
Custom 1996 Silverado Stepside Pickup 1/2 ton 4 wheel drive 5.7L Vortec , I have another Vortec engine and custom topper goes with this. I bought this vehicle new off show room floor. The interior is cloth seats with wood trim. Most exterior paint is still excellent. The vehicle hit a ditch and mail box in the winter. Then the motor started knocking so I placed it in storage for the past two years. Decided to sell it as I no longer have garage to repair. The box and two doors still are in beautiful condition. Hood and front fenders have clear coat flaking off. The motor will run but knocks and I started it yesterday and tried to move it and transmission now may have seals dried and causing transmission to need repaired. This is a one of a kind collector. Very sharp looking.

Motor in back of truck is not the 5.7L , picture was taken and added by mistake. I will add the 5.7L picture soon. I have a 2000 5.7L with 145,000 miles to go with this truck. Also have a Custom Step side Topper in great shape only has a few scratches. The 5.7 Vortec motor cost me $1200. And Topper was $1400. The Motor in the truck can be relisted after you install this motor. 5.7L Vortec motors go for 500-$1000 just as a rebuilder. The transmission is believed to now be ok. Mechanic said reason vehicle would not move was due to drive shaft taken out to move without key. I do have the ignition key.

Recently discovered General Motors trademark applications for LT4, LT5, LT88 and LTX have observers wondering what kind of high-performance offerings could be on their way. A new LT4 would mark a return of the engine designation first used on the Corvette Grand Sport, SLP Pontiac Firehawk and SLP Chevrolet Camaro SS from 1996 and 1997. Supposition at Corvette Forum - which provided advance intel on the C7 like these leaked images - believes a new LT4 could go into the high-performance trim of the next-gen, 2015 Camaro that would be more powerful than the 580-horsepower Camaro ZL1.

Seeing an LT5 again would also be déjà vu - in its former life it was a 5.7-liter V8 for the C4 Corvette ZR-1 from 1990-1994 designed by Lotus, producing from 370 hp to 405 hp. A mix of rumor and hope is that the new LT5 will be a supercharged evolution of the 6.2-liter LT1 (pictured) placed in the new C7 Corvette, and that it will go into the C7 version of the ZR1 pumping out something like 700 hp.
The LTX trademark is, as with that last letter, a complete mystery. If the "X" isn't a generic way to denote the whole LT family, it's wondered if it LTX could refer to a crate motor offering like the LSX.
The car you see above is the 2014 Chevrolet SS, and it's important both because it is the first rear-wheel-drive performance sedan from Chevy in 17 years, and because it will be the nameplate the brand uses on NASCAR tracks all across the country starting this year.

Though it wears a name as American as baseball and apple pie, the machine was actually designed and built in Australia, sharing most of its parts with the brand-new VF-model Holden Commodore. That said, the basic chassis bits are shared with other Chevrolet models like the Camaro and Caprice Police Patrol Vehicle.
While Chevrolet is happy to sell a Malibu or Impala to anyone looking for a mainstream family sedan, but the SS is reserved for buyers interested first and foremost in performance. Most sedans sold these days are front-wheel drive, which is great for everyday driving and when the weather goes bad, but the SS is instead a rear-wheel-drive vehicle aimed at enthusiasts who love to drive and who prefer speed and performance above all else.
Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.
We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.
