Umatilla, Florida, United States

1949 Chevy truck.  Shortbed 3100 on a 1994 Silverado Frame.  Truck has power steering, tilt column, power brakes, front disc brakes.  New shocks, 350 chevy engine with Holley 600 four barrell carb.  Steel headers and dual exhaust ran to the rear of the cab with two thrush mufflers.  This truck runs and drives great. The frame and drivetrain came out of a silverado with less than 80k miles on it.  Runs like a bear! Has new aluminum radiator with electric fan.  AC compressor is still on the engine for anyone who wants to add air. The frame swap was done right.  As you can see in the pics, the truck has a ton of new parts.  Im not going to go through and make a list.  Has all new glass and rubbers, upgraded to electric windshield wiper motor.  Has bi-xenon headlights.  All the lights work including turn signals. Seat is newly recovered with genuine leather  The dash has been customized to fit a kenwood dvd/ navigation stereo.  It is not currently installed or included.  Rear speakers are wired and installed.  I can include and install the stereo/gps for an additional $550 if the buyer choses to do so.  Paint is only a few months old. Color is House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl. Its a great looking paint job, but it is not show quality or flawless.  Bed rails and bed floor are stained and varnished oak.  Wheels are 15 inch with new tires. Has new gauges that are all operational including electronic speedometer.  I have only put a few miles on the truck as of today, but I will be driving it all week to work out any possible small problems like squeaks or rattles.  Right now the truck needs a few minor details to be taken care of including front end alignment, carb adjustment (new), and some detailing.  Any questions, call me at 570-299-1755.  Truck has a clear 1949 FL title in my name ready for transfer.  I would consider a partial trade on a 1930-1954 chevy truck project with cash.  Nothing else.  This is a big boy toy, so check with your wife, your mother, your dog, or whoever you need to before you bid.  Call me with any reasonable offers, but dont call me to ask how much I want.  

I can help arrange transport if needed.  

My pics were taken while the truck was still a little dusty and dirty.  I will get more on during the auction

On Apr-22-14 at 13:00:00 PDT, seller added the following information:

I added a few more pics now that the truck is clean.  Had a front end alignment done today and drove it around to get a few more miles on it.  Ive had a ton of questions about the truck.  The frame is a complete frame swap.  Not a partial clip.  Its a full size shortbed 94 silverado under the 49 body.  It drives just like a 94 silverado.  It drives great.  It needs a few small things to be complete.  Nothing major.  It needs carpet.  Right now the floor is sprayed with truck bedliner and mostly covered with sound deadening material as you can see in the pics.  The drivers window rolls up and down but it needs adjustment, or a new regulator.  It works but its a little grumpy.  I have a few people coming by for test drives tomorrow and Thurs.  I will likely have the truck at the Good Guys show in Kissimmee FL on friday or saturday.

Watch NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon put one over on a used car dealer... sorta

Wed, 13 Mar 2013

Full Disclosure: in my younger days, I loved nothing more than tormenting passengers with my behind-the-wheel hijinks. Once, after a particularly artful handbrake turn on a two-lane at around 50 miles per hour, I left one backseat occupant crying in their own lap. This isn't necessarily something to be proud of, but it gives you a glimpse into why it is that I find this ad from Pepsi so damn disappointing. The premise is beautiful. Take NASCAR legend Jeff Gordon, give him a disguise and set him loose upon some unsuspecting used car dealer. Hilarity ensues.
Except that this Pepsi Max commercial is so obviously staged, it can't help but feel like some ham-fisted marketing fail. From the strategically placed aftermarket cupholder mounted mid-dash for the hidden camera to the fact that the supposed dealer Camaro is displayed as a 2009 model (Hint: Chevrolet didn't make any), this clip is about as organic as a Twinkie. Still, we would never turn down a chance to watch Gordon thrash on a rental-spec coupe - only problem is, he probably didn't even do the driving himself. Check it out below.

Are you the 2014 Corvette Grand Sport?

Thu, 21 Feb 2013

When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.
The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.

GM dealers unhappy about pickup prices

Mon, 21 Oct 2013

The backlash is beginning. Following General Motors' price hike of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra last week, dealers across the country are expressing their ire over increasing prices in the face of rebates and discounts on trucks from Ford and Ram.
Speaking to Automotive News, Sam Pilato, the general manager at Dimmitt Chevrolet in Clearwater, FL, Silverados are "selling very poorly." W. Carrol Smith, the president of Monument Chevrolet in the heart of truck country, Texas, said, "[GM's] position is that the vehicle stands on its own and it doesn't need a bigger rebate. That's not what the market is telling us."
According to AN, that's the general attitude amongst Chevy and GMC dealers across the country, where the twin pickups are getting butchered in sales by competitors offering up to $9,000 off their sticker prices. Part of the problem for GM is that its trucks are arriving on the market near the end of the current F-150's lifecycle, a fact that Ford has taken advantage of.
