 Total Frame off restoration. '73 Nova front subframe with power disc brakes and power steering, all rebuilt. Truck is lowered about 5 inches all around and rides and drives very good. Everything has been replace on this truck: reconditioned American Racing "Daisies" wheels and new tires all around. Complete boxed frame plus extensive rust preventive treatment throughout chassis. Truck drives and handles very nicely. It has a 300 hp 327 ci engine taken from a 1965 Chevy Impala with only 56K original miles on it. I put an additional about 3k miles  myself on it. It is a joy to drive. It has a late'90s 5speed pickup truck manual transmission that works flawlessly and fits the trucks character perfectly. It has Magnaflow stainless steel mufflers on it along with a complete new dual exhaust system. The wiring has been completely replaced with an "easy wiring" wiring harness. The 4 gage instrument set are Autometer with the speedometer bein a very close matching electronic programmable model all on a new billet custom dash panal. It has a modern GM tilt steering column along with a new Grant Mahagany wheel. All chrome on the vehicle except the center grill section is new from Brother's Trucks. The bed has been done in treated pine 5/4" decking planks routed to fit the stainless strips, but before assembly the were coated with a deck restoration product you can get at Lows, it's called RESTORE. It can be mixed in ANY color, is easy to roll on and is the best wearing bed liner material I have ever saw. Plus if it did somehow get discolored just roll on a new coat.

The truck has new carpet and newly recovered door panels. It has a new headliner in it. It has all new rubber seals and wheatherstripping. I did not put a heat/air system in it. I meant to, just didn't get to it. The seats are out of a late 90's Chevy car, I think a lumina or something like that. But they fit the truck perfectly and are sooo comfortable. The truck has all new glass, tinted grey in back and on the sides, clear with green upper boarder on the windshield

This truck is a joy to drive and gets more thumbs up and approval than any car I've every had (and that has been quite a few).

Why the Corvette is Chevrolet's billion-dollar baby

Thu, 28 Feb 2013

Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.

Corvette Stingray Convertible images mysteriously appear on web, so we add our own

Tue, 22 Jan 2013

It was inevitable that we'd see the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray topless at some point, but that didn't make us any less interested when a pair of supposedly leaked official images showed up on theautoinsiderblog.com last week. We posted them on our Facebook page, but held off reporting on them here until we could get a little more information.
Those images, which feature a dark red car on a sterile black studio background, supposedly first appeared on the website of diecast model maker Maisto. A Chevrolet spokesman has been reported saying that they are "not official images released by Chevrolet PR," which isn't a denial they're the real deal, but neither is it a confirmation.
Close examination of the photos suggest they could be official shots of the Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while some have doubted their authenticity due to a lack of vents (which were seen on the C7s that debuted in Detroit last week), it could be that the images are of a base model car without the Z51 package that doesn't require the extra venting and cooling.
