Up for sale is a REAL 1965 SS Malibu Convertible 138 vin car. In 1964 Pontiac introduced the GTO by stuffing a 389
into a Lemans and started the muscle car craze. So in 1965 Chevrolet had to find an answer, what they came up with
the Z16! There were 201 of them made, 200 hardtops and 1 convertible. That convertible was lost to history and if
ever found would be a priceless "1 of 1". This car was made to look like what the second one would have been.
It has a big block 454 in it and is a 4 speed. Featuring the power convertible top, woodgrain steering wheel, dash
mounted clock and the under dash Kleenex dispenser; all super rare options for the '65. It also has the same Z16
wheel covers in near perfect condition. I also hunted down and rebuilt the original number Holley carburetor that
came on the Z16. Both the transmission and motor were rebuilt before I bought it and have approximately 15,000 -
20,000 miles on them, although I do not have the documentation.
This car looks stunning in it's Teal Blue paint; with it's white top and interior, it's a perfect combination. If
you tried to build this car today, it would probably cost close to 100K. Especially if you were lucky enough to
find all the rare options this car has.
As in any 50 year old car there are a couple of minor things that will need to be tended to if you want to make it
perfect. The top drivers side latch for the convertible top is very thin metal, I would probably reinforce it with
a brace or add more metal to it. The rear window is made of real glass, not plastic and the zipper that goes around
the top has skipped a tooth. I had it priced to replace at a local interior shop for $125.

Final C6 Corvette built in Bowling Green

Fri, 01 Mar 2013

With all of the attention given to the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray lately, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's already well along in production, yet tooling up for the new C7 has only just begun. In fact, production of the outgoing C6 generation in Bowling Green, Kentucky just halted on Thursday.
As the C6 has aged, production numbers have predictably ebbed along with demand, but this year, the addition of the 427 and 60th anniversary models resulted in an uptick in vehicles built - this, despite a model year shortened by around 25 percent to accomodate the new model changeover. The final C6 Corvette ever, No. 13,466 built this year, was a white 427 Convertible destined for the General Motors Heritage Center museum. The car's 7.0-liter V8 heart was assembled by Corvette chief engineer Tadge Juechter himself.
In total, Bowling Green pushed out 215,100 C6 Corvettes over nine years. If you're still a C6 fan at heart and are hoping to get a good deal on a phase-out model, step lively - Chevrolet reportedly had about 6,100 unsold units, which Autoweek suggests is good for around five and a half months of supply at the model's current sales rates. Given that demand will likely slacken even further as the C7 draws closer, that should be a big enough stockpile to keep dealers satisfied until 2014 Stingrays begin showing up on their forecourts in December.

Chevy Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo concept blends the past and the future

Wed, 19 Nov 2014

The Chevrolet Chaparral 2X Vision Gran Turismo is the rare concept car that salutes a seminal moment in history, yet also borders on science fiction.
Revealed Wednesday at the Los Angeles Auto Show, the concept uses the name of one of Chevy's historic racing partnerships, with Chaparral Racing, which dates to the 1960s. Chaparrals raced successfully at a range of levels, including IndyCar, Trans-Am and SCCA competition.
But the history ends there, as the concept's main purpose is as a racecar in a downloadable update for the PlayStation 3 game Gran Turismo 6.

Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th

Tue, 15 Apr 2014

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.
