Vehicle has its original 454 that is outfitted with a custom fit Banks exhaust system with an X pipe and cold air K&N filter intake. A catalytic converter will need to be added if you are moving the vehicle to a state that requires emissions (engine light is on currently due to emissions removal, will go out when re-installed). Rear seal on crank Shaft has a slight oil leak. This era Chevy 454 uses oil, and they always have. With that and the crank seal leak it is currently using about half a quart of oil (plus or minus) between oil changes (3500 miles) so the repair is by no means needed ASAP.

Tires are okay with about 50% (plus or minus) of their tread life left. The truck will require a final  front wheel alignment (preliminary already done) due to suspension modifications (the drop kit that was installed). Cruise control is currently not functioning (not sure why, never really cared). The A/C works and blows cold air, but has to be charged seasonally (I do it myself with a simple can of recharge from the local auto parts store, takes about five minutes.) Truck fires right up and drives very good (See Video Link Below) and gauges and instruments all work. (See List Above)


The driver's seat has cracking on the left side under the custom covers. The passenger seat and rear seats are very good. Windshield will need to be replaced. Overall condition of this vehicle is good+. It has a tow package (with actuator), plus an additional tow package for both fifth wheel and goose neck (bolted through the bed to the frame - 25K capacity). (Goose neck hitch is included with purchase of vehicle.) Vehicle can still tow fine even with the drop kit. I used this truck to haul horses, that's it. No heavy loads like RVs, but I am not the originally owner so I cannot say what it was used for before I bought it.

Paint overall is in good condition, but there are some flaws on the rear fenders. Duallys have a tendency to throw rocks up from the tires and hit the inner fenders. That's just the way it is with duallys of this era (no inner fender protection). The paint is not chipped or missing, but spidered.

This is a solid truck that you can drive right now without any worries. I don't care where in the country you live, you can drive this truck home as is, if you so choose. Does it have issues? Yes of course it does, it is almost twenty years old. I have listed the issues that I would like to know about if I was buying a vehicle. However, you can ask me any questions and I will answer them. I am an honest seller and have nothing to hide, but cannot pretend to know everything. If I do not disclose something it is because I am not aware of it - period. If, I do know something about this truck, then so will you. Contact me by “asking seller a question”. There is no reason you should not be completely happy with your purchase, just ask. I have taken care of this vehicle while I have been the owner and I am selling it because I bought a newer one and have no use for two duallys.

I have tried to describe this vehicle to the best of my ability, but each person's opinions can and do vary, so please ask questions. I have linked below to a video of the truck starting and running. The title is clean and clear. I'm happy to assist with shipping logistics if needed.

Why Cadillac thinks it needs to succeed in Europe to sell cars elsewhere

Tue, 26 Feb 2013 10:59:00 EST

Ward's Auto has taken an interesting look at the renewed focus General Motors is showing towards Cadillac in Europe. Susan Docherty, president and managing director of Chevrolet and Cadillac in Europe (pictured), says in order for the luxury brand to thrive in China, it first needs to succeed in the old country. The reason? Chinese buyers look to Europe for cues as to what's deemed worthy of the term "luxury." There are hurdles to the plan, however. In addition to the fact that the EU is flooded with high-end nameplates, GM doesn't necessarily have the distribution network in place to put buyers behind the wheel.
Combine that with persistent economic woes and Cadillac's checkered past marred by a lack of diesel engine options and a bankrupt distributor, and the road ahead for the brand looks like less of an uphill climb and more like a straight-up cliff face. But Docherty is optimistic and says she has a plan for the brand. We recommend heading over to Ward's for a closer look at the full read.

2013 Chevy COPO Camaro announced with two new engines and manual option

Thu, 07 Mar 2013 18:28:00 EST

Chevrolet is following up the 2012 COPO Camaro with another limited run of the drag-strip-ready production car for 2013. Ditching the superchargers, the 2013 COPO Camaro can only be equipped with one of three naturally aspirated V8 engines, and other new features include the option of a manual transmission, new front springs, some minor styling changes and a lower starting price of $86,000. All cars are designed to abide by the rules of the NHRA's Stock Eliminator or Super Stock classifications, depending on in which series buyers wish to enter their Chevrolet Camaro.
Returning for 2013 is the 427-cubic-inch V8 producing 425 horsepower, but the new engines include a 325-hp 350-CID V8 and a 375-hp 396-CID V8. Buyers can select to purchase all three engines, and each will be matched with the sequence number of that car; the track-only COPO cars will not have vehicle identification numbers and can't be registered for street use.
Chevrolet is also offering unique enthusiast-specific options such as a COPO Build Book and the opportunity for owners to help assemble their car's engine at the Chevrolet Performance Build Center in Wixom, MI.

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.
