Chevrolet Bel Air/150/210 Bel Air on 2040-cars
Avondale, Arizona, United States
As our retirement years have arrived, periodically we will be offering a few cherished classics, privately owned within our west coast collection Never any rust nor body issues. The undercarriage is very clean and painted, as shown within the current photos taken the day of this listing. No spray bombs here! Just honest quality as you can view the original floor pans and frame in excellent condition. The incredible Chevrolet Bel Air hard top was the beneficiary of a complete nut and bolt, no expense spared rotisserie restoration in 2011. It is a very high quality restoration, the expense of which is substantially much more than the "Buy it Now" price, let alone the initial acquisition cost. Sporting a deep beautiful PPG two stage paint, this 1958 Chevrolet has been painted only once. I will include prior photos with the car, evident of a wonderful no issue Arizona body prior to restoration. A 350 CID V-8, with polished Tune Port Injection. The engine looks like jewelry, within the pristine detailed engine compartment! A new 700R4 automatic transmission was installed. Sanderson jet coated headers as well. Rebuilt differential is 3.55, great for comfortable driving. Four bar rear suspension. Serpentine belt system with chrome pulleys. Stainless steel dual exhaust with Magnaflow mufflers. All new Ron Francis wiring and circuit panel. Tubular "A" arms. Power disc brakes 11" front, drum rear. Air ride Technologies suspension with controls in the glove box. Magnificent chrome. A 32 gallon custom aluminum gas tank.

General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.
According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.
It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.
Over the weekend, Chevrolet released its first images of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Now, ahead of the droptop's official introduction tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, the automaker has given us a few more shots of the softop C7 showing off the car's rump albeit from a high, strategically positioned angle.
From this angle, it's hard to get a sense for how long and flat the decklid really is, but we can easily see that, like the rest of the C7's design, the new convertible's decklid and tonneau cover are far more detailed than the current car. We also get a better look at the rear haunches sans brake vents, which have apparently been moved to underneath the car in order to accommodate the top's hard cover.
As for the overall styling of the C7 convertible, with the top erected, we get some idea of what a coupe design (as opposed to the Stingray's fastback shape) would look like on this car. The C5 Corvette most recently had a coupe model that did away with the large glass hatchback, and we recently reported on a low-cost "coupe" model potentially being added to the C7's repertoire.
