Overall Details:

 

You are looking at an amazing work or Art. Must be seen in person to appreciate the quality of this frame off restoration. No expense was spared and there are no short cuts whatsoever. It also only had the very best skilled experts touch it during throughout the entire build process. No shade tree 90% effort as seen on most restorations….. rather Barret Jackson Quality Craftsman that have perfected what they do. The detailed pics should show some of what I am talking about so you can get the idea. Of course, you can come see the car and inspect it, you will be speechless.

 

This truck has been driven enough to sort out any new build kinks and that could have been present. From the first start though, it has started, ran and driven perfect. In total, I’ve driven it 385 miles to be exact. It is 100%, no issues whatsoever. It drives much better than when it was new in 1967. Mechanically perfect, no issues of any kind. It drives straight, stops great, runs cool and handles excellent. Quality sound deadener was used throughout the interior compartment to cancel road noise, it is very quiet inside now and has a very solid, new car feel to it. The driving experience is nothing like you would expect from a 67 era truck, it is nothing short of exceptional in every way. The exhaust note is deep and throaty with some rumble, but not at all offensive or annoying like some. Turn key and go and it puts a smile on your face that just won’t go away. On a scale of 1-10 in the following categories I’d rate is has follows:

 

Quality of paint and body       10

Interior                                    10

Running and driving               10

Creature comforts                     8 (no ac)

Power / performance               10

 

 

 

Listing everything would take hours, here is a

Summary:

 

Paint and body / Frame off rotisserie Restoration                            $25,000

Interior / Gauges / Column / Stereo / Wiring                                    $  2,500

496 CI BBC Hot Street Engine / 400 Built Trans / Rear                  $12,500

Suspension / Wheels / Fuel System / Cooling / Exhaust                  $11,000

 

TOTAL:         $51,000

 

This build is extensively documented and will come with a huge pile or receipts and details. I have most, but not all of the build paper work.

 

That build dollar is not counting misc little things or the price of the truck to begin with. This is real money and some would try to recover 100% of the build cost or more. The way the truck looks and drives I think that would not be out of line. I took over the process on my dollar when a friend hit a ‘brick wall’ financially speaking to finish it due to the auto plant where he worked closing. I had a complete car that needed nothing so we made a trade. At that point, the truck was 70%-75% complete. I got into it from what I felt was a great deal and will pass that along and more to sell it. I knew the complete history of the build and had full confidence in all work that had been performed as I know the shop that did most of hit as well as him. I have a restoration shop, the remainder of the work was done by me.

 

 

Build Highlights:

 

Body, Paint and Frame:

 

The entire process started by with a complete disassembly of the truck, down to every single nut and bolt being removed, bagged and labeled. From there, all parts that were to be reused were media blasted and epoxy primed for excellent paint adhesion. This included the frame, cab body and all misc parts. Then, all new body panels were purchased – including fenders, bed sides, inner wheel openings, tail gate, doors, hood, rockers and cab corners all new. Each panel was installed and straightened as needed to perfection. Then, the car was put together to fit all panels and achieve perfect body gaps. Finally, it was block sanded several times and then its’ beautiful Code 81 Flame Red Base Coat Lear coat was carefully applied and buffed to perfection by one of the best painters in our area. The bed was done in beautiful Oak and it turned out perfect. This phase of the build was done by a restoration shop called Custom auto works by the renowned Wally Enders.

 

 

Engine and Drivetrain:

 

Next came the engine build, no corners cut here. I wanted a great street motor with power to spare. To achieve that, a totally race prepped short block was acquired from a local racer and sent to a top notch machine shop for the works. A set of rare and highly sought after corvette L88 heads were totally gone through as well with all new valves and race valve job. A healthy but not too radical Competition Cams cam was purchased and the engine was completed with an Team G aluminum intake,  Pro Systems 1,000 cfm holley carb, MSD distributor and custom ceramic coated Cooks 2 and 1/8th” headers with a custom full mandrel bent 3” aluminum coated exhaust out the back. It ended up making plenty of power . Yet, it drives very tame when you do not press the gas pedal too hard – which was exactly what I hoped for. I’d estimate the horsepower to be at least 550hp but closer to 590-610hp. It is a rush for sure, I did not build it to be a race car, but it is very powerful and if you like horsepower you will LOVE this truck.

 

All the supporting cast is top notch as well. Fully pro built automatic 400 turbo trans, Transmission Specialties torque converter spec’d for this build, built rear end, drive shaft, etc. Complete professional wiring from Painless, cooling system and fuel system all the best money can buy.

 

 

 

SUMMARY

 

This truck runs, looks and drives amazing. It lacks nothing, turn key and drive to any show and take first place.

 

I’ve built dozens and show cars and have been doing type work for a living for over 25 years, so I have a trained eye. This truck is second to none, top to bottom. Bid with confidence as there is zero chance of being disappointed.  PLEASE look closely at the pics, they were all just taken and I used a high resolution camera to try to show the details well. There is no photo shop stuff the pro’s do to make things look better and nor am I a photographer, but I assure you the truck looks as good or better than the pics show it, no surprises here. Title is clean, free and clear and in my hand.

 

NO SCAMS – NO TRADES – NO PICTURE COLLECTORS – NO DREAMERS. Please, serious buyers only with the funds to buy inquire or bid on this truck. The truck will not leave my shop until it’s paid for in full. I have spent a lot of time describing the vehicle so as not to waste you time, please do not waste mine.

 

636-744-3800 – SERIOUS BUYER ONLY please, text or call.

 

Thank you for looking!!!

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible is a Swiss hit

Mon, 04 Mar 2013

We've just received an early peek at the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible here at the Geneva Motor Show. General Motors was kind enough to let us attend the final dress-rehearsal for its press conference scheduled for tomorrow's opening media day, and we've come away with a good look at the droptop C7 in person.
In the metal, the new Corvette Convertible seems somehow less avant-garde than the Coupe, even in Z51 Performance Package guise. That's not necessarily a bad thing - more of an observation. That initial impression may be because the C7's new greenhouse is one of its most prominent departures from Corvettes past. While we didn't get to see the top erected, there's no rear side window in the stock images that Chevy has already released, suggesting the C7 convertible's profile will look a lot like its C6 predecessor. And with the new power tonneau cover in place, there are also no rear ducts that come as part of the Z51 package (they've been moved under the car).
As with its predecessor, the tonneau is a handsome double-bubble piece, and the body-color "waterfall" element into the cabin between the seats has made it to the new model as well. Thus, the overall look with the top down should be a bit more familiar to prior-gen C6 owners - if you're one of those put off by the C7's new shape, you'll probably appreciate the convertible bodystyle more than the coupe.

Hot Wheels' Twitter-enabled vending machine coughs up free Camaro diecasts

Wed, 27 Feb 2013

There are still plenty of companies that haven't gotten the whole social media thing down pat yet, but Hot Wheels isn't one of them. During the recent Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, Hot Wheels created a lot of buzz for itself by using a vending machine filled with Chevrolet Camaro models, but instead of money to get the cars, show attendees just had to use Twitter.
To get the free car, people were asked to send a tweet to Hot Wheels Canada saying what they liked about the new Hot Wheels Edition Camaro, and including the #ChevyCIAS hashtag. This seemed to be a popular marketing tool, too, as AdWeek reports that the @HotWheelsCanada account more than tripled in followers during the course of the 10-day show. Looking ahead, this could open up even more innovative marketing possibilities using social media.
Check out the video posted below to watch how it works, and while the auto show has ended and the free-car giveaway has too, we're almost certain that some of the 1,500 freebies will make their way onto eBay.

General Motors Recalls Nearly 780,000 Cars To Fix Deadly Problem

Thu, Feb 13 2014

General Motors is recalling nearly 780,000 compact cars in North America because the engines can shut down unexpectedly and cause crashes. The company says six people have been killed in crashes related to the problem. The recall affects Chevrolet Cobalts and Pontiac G5s from the 2005 through 2007 model years. U.S. safety regulators say the weight of the key ring and rough roads can move the ignition switch out of the run position, cutting the engine and electricity. If that happens, air bags may not work. GM says there have been 22 crashes from the problem. All happened at high speeds. Dealers will replace the ignition switch for free. GM says owners should remove nonessential items from key rings until the problem is fixed.
