1935 Chevy Truck Cab Rat Street Hot Rod Custom Chopped Project Barn Find on 2040-cars
Irvington, Alabama, United States
1935 Chevy truck cab, what is for sale is only the truck cab that you see in the pictures. This was built about 1 year ago, and was finished into a running driving truck, and then the guy decided he wanted something different and pulled the cab off the chassis and started building another body and I got the cab from him with the intention of using it, but I have way to many projects now so its for sale. The cab has been chopped, it has suicide doors, smooth firewall, and its body dropped. When it was on a tub chassis it sat really low. The motor that was used was a small block Chevy and the exhaust was ran down and under the front edge of the cab for a different look. It does have a front and back glass in it that appears to be very good, matter of fact the front glass still folds out. The cab still has its cowl vent installed and functional. The dash in the cab appears to be the original dash that came with the truck just painted yellow now. All the floors and tunnel are all made out of steel. The truck does come with the seat cushions all made, and you could always just have them recovered to your liking. In the center of the seats is a chrome hood ornament which adds a cool feature to the truck. The truck has also had a roll bar added to behind the seats in the back of the cab for added safety. Like I said this is just for the truck cab, its had a load of work already done to it, and you could basically just sit it right on your frame and go if you wanted. Its a great looking cab and would make someone a great rat rod. The truck cab is for sale locally and is subject to be taken off Ebay if sold. The truck is also sold as is with no warranty. The truck cab is also sold on bill of sale only. A 25% deposit is due within 3 days of the auctions end and the balance within 7 more when the truck is to be picked up or arrangements are made for the truck to be shipped. If you have any questions about the truck cab, please fill free to ask and I will gladly answer them to the best of my ability. Thanks and God Bless Kody 251-454-5455

As much as our digital lives have cut down on our trips to the post office, there are still times that sending "snail mail" is necessary. With us car lovers in mind and philately in their hearts, the good folks at the United States Postal Service will introduce a new stamp design called "Muscle Cars" starting on February 22.
Designed by artist Tom Fritz, the new collection of stamps consist of five classic muscle cars: 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1966 Pontiac GTO and 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda. In addition to just the stamps, the USPS is also commemorating the new series with plenty of collectable memorabilia. Previous car-related stamps include 50s Sporty Cars from 2005 and 50s Fins and Chrome from 2008.
Domestic manufacturers enjoyed a good year for heavy-duty pickup sales in 2012. PickupTrucks.com has taken a close look at exactly how those sales broke down between each manufacturer and between three-quarter and one-ton pickups. Ford sold some 67,786 F-250 Super Duty models last year with the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD falling just behind at 56,359 units. The Ram 2500 HD came in third at 41,918, while the GMC Sierra 2500 HD earned itself fourth place with 27,616 deliveries. While Ford held onto the top spot in the one-ton market, Ram easily nailed down second place by selling more 3500 HD models last year than General Motors sold Silverado 3500 HD and Sierra 3500 HD trucks combined.
So, did GM manage to sell more trucks than Ford with its two brands? Very nearly. Ford sold a total of 119,338 heavy-duty pickups to GM's 111,555. Ram, meanwhile, moved a distant 77,583. But perhaps more interesting is the diesel take rate in this segment. PickupTrucks.com says 80 percent of all domestic one-ton trucks roll from the dealer lot with a turbo-diesel under the hood. Head over to the site for a closer look at the breakdown.
Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.
