1971 Chevrolet Ck Pickup 2500 on 2040-cars
Pe Ell, Washington, United States
Auto restoration shop offers the owner’s personal 1971 Chevy K20 4x4 Pickup. We built this truck for the owner,
just test/tune miles since completion. This is a factory K20, the 4x4’s never got a big block from the factory,
we built a nice 454 for this truck, the big block conversion was done correctly. This is a rust free high desert
Oregon truck. This truck has some nice options, built to be driven and used. This truck could be proudly shown at
any car show, but was not built with than intention. We have quite a bit more money in this build than it’s
worth, shop owner has been selling off some of his vintage car collection for business expansion. This is his last
and favorite Chevy pickup. This truck is big, loud, fast and mean. Everywhere this truck has been driven gets
conversations, photo requests and thumbs up. Not many factory 4x4’s out there built to this level. I believe the
1971/2 Chevy K20 was the best pickup ever built.
We started with a 70’s Gen IV Big Block 454. Large oval port “781” casting heads, forged internals, Comp 282
hydraulic camshaft, Crane roller rockers, balanced rotating assembly. Edelbrock aluminum intake, 750 CFM Edelbrock
4 barrel carburetor electric choke, HEI (electronic) ignition. Headers are long tube for a Chevelle, best setup for
this conversion. Aluminum valve covers and air cleaner. 454 built for torque, with a bumpy cam, with incredible
low-mid range power you want in a 4x4. We never Dynoed this motor but guess it’s in the 425-450 Horse & 500+ ft
lb TQ range. We’ve seen so many times guys go too far on a BBC 4x4 build with rectangle port car heads and a huge
cam which gives only top end power you don’t want in a 4x4. We have the ignition timing set for premium pump
fuel. Dual 2 ½ in exhaust to dual 40 series Flowmaster mufflers. Power steering, large hub open knuckle disc brake
front axle, heavy duty Eaton rear axle, both original to the truck, 4.10 gears. Rebuilt TH-350 automatic
transmission with shift kit to rebuilt 205 gear driven transfer case. Part time T-Case with 2H 4H N 4L. Skyjacker
lift kit and shocks, brand new 35’s on new aluminum wheels.
We believe this to be one of the best 67-72 4x4 trucks out there, built tough to be used. This is not a 1000 point
trailer queen show car, it is a very nice excellent condition driver. Finding a solid restorable 4x4, restoring,
converting to big block would cost near double the asking price and take time to build, save money and time to buy

General Motors is recalling some 426,240 sedans that may have a faulty transmission shift cable, according to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report this morning. The recall concerns a fault within four-speed automatic transmissions equipped on 2007-2010 Saturn Aura models, and 2008-2010 Chevrolet Malibu and Pontiac G6 models.
The report specifies that tabs on the transmission shift cable may fracture and separate. Such a fault could cause a discrepancy between the actual position of the transmission and the apparent position of the shift lever.
GM is currently working to notify owners of the vehicles in question, and dealers will check and replace shift cables free of charge. Scroll down to read the complete NHTSA report.
Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
Where else would you expect the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to show up first? Although this time it isn't exactly in Jay Leno's Garage, Leno instead playing an away game at Brown's Classic Auto in Scottsdale, Arizona. Nor does Leno drive the car, instead taking an 11-minute walkaround of the new American sports car with General Motors design head Ed Welburn, the same man who recently brought by a string of classic Corvettes to the talk show host's California compound.
It is, admittedly, a love-fest for the American sports car now featuring 450 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque, but one that also features admissions about previous Corvette seats like "they were kinda rough," and the explanation that labeling the coupe "Stingray" means not having to call it "the base Corvette." On top of that, Welburn also explains the proper application of the term "dashboard." You can watch it all in the video below.
