1952 Chevy Hot Rod Custom Built Pickup on 2040-cars
Tulsa, Oklahoma, United States
Completely built from the ground up on a 1994 Chevrolet S-10 frame with Advanced Design Engineering of California's subframe kit by Tom's Rod's and Customs. Body and bed were media blasted, primed and painted with PPG Silk Blue and a metal flake added to the clear coat on the cab for that "60's look". Tom had a sign painter create a logo for the doors....I like it, but if the new owner does not, a quart of the PPG paint comes with the truck. All receipts and manuals, wiring diagrams, etc. are included.
New GM Goodwrench crate 350 CID/290 HP engine with quadrajet carb, GM TH350 automatic transmission from Summit Racing, Lokar shift linkage on the floor.
Mallory HEI ignition, Holley electric fuel pump, new power front disc brakes and wheel bearings, rebuilt front end on Belltech drop spindles, Monroe Reflex rear shocks, rear drum brakes.
American Autowire wiring harness, new 30" steering column with tilt, Lobeck steering components, pedals and throttle linkage, Haneline gauge package, custom dual exhaust. Power-assisted steering.
New chrome Vintique 15"x7" rear wheels, 15"x6" front wheels shod with Coker American Classic radials (235 and 215).
New Vintage Air Conditioning/Defrost/Heat made expressly for this series of Chevy trucks, and it blows cold air. Temp gauge never gets over 190*. Cab roof and doors have been soundproofed and insulated. New headliner. New outside rearview mirrors.
New Stainless and Pine bed. Wood treated with Minwax Spar UV protected satin polyurethane. All the glass and rubber are new.
Truck was built to be super dependable and be a good driver and it is. A few minor scratches here and there, and the hood support springs vibrate a bit. Removed the little stereo Tom had in the glovebox but had to remove it to make way for the Vintage Air ductwork...but there is some good space behind the glovebox door for items, just not deep enough for a radio. Speakers are still in the doors. There are several AM/FM stereos that fit in the dash without cutting...just remove the plate behind the plugs. Classic Parts of America sells one for $180.00 and there are others to choose from.

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette really grinds Peter De Lorenzo's gears. Or, more accurately, the self-anointed Auto Extremist has an issue with what he sees as mismanagement of the legendary sports car by General Motors executives. In a new editorial on his website, De Lorenzo argues it's time to split Corvette off from Chevrolet to create an all-new brand, complete with a model range with at least three new takes on the sports car. Capable of fully leveraging the successes of the Corvette Racing program and brandishing the full might of GM's technical prowess, the Corvette brand would theoretically give Porsche something to sweat over.
Sure, that sounds like a party, but given GM's troubled track record when it comes to launching (let alone managing) brands, we say that's slippery slope that could just as easily end with the whole Corvette franchise in the scrap bin. Either way, the notion is certainly an interesting one. Head over to Auto Extremist to take in the full editorial, and then let us know what you think in Comments. Should GM split off its most storied nameplate?
Someone was bound to receive a free 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray during the Super Bowl XLVII festivities; it just wasn't who we thought it was going to be. Despite a report back in December that superstar Beyoncé Knowles would be getting an all-new Corvette during her halftime performance, that turned out not to be the case. Joe Flacco, starting quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, did in fact win a Corvette for his MVP performance.
So what transpired that prevented Beyoncé from rolling on stage in the new Chevrolet? Anyone who knows isn't telling, but according to Yahoo! Autos, General Motors said that for one reason or another a deal "did not work out," and it appears to have been an eleventh-hour change. Regardless of who's to blame or what prevented this from happening, we're sure Chevy has had no problems getting attention for the C7 Corvette since it was introduced last month.
We've talked about Pure Vision Design before, a California-based company that made waves at last year's SEMA show with its Martini-liveried, Indy-car-powered Ford Mustang. That same car later starred in a Petrolicious video we showed you just a few weeks back. The company's latest creation is a menacing car it calls the Pure Vision Design TT Camaro. Based on a 1972 model, this car shares the Martini Mustang's clean styling and obsession with details.
Unlike the Mustang, which draws its power from a mid-60s Lotus-Ford Indycar engine, the "TT" in this Camaro's name implies something far more potent. The Nelson Racing Engines 427-cubic-inch V8 has been fitted with a pair of turbochargers, with a claimed output of 1,400 horsepower. That's almost 1,000 more than the Martini Mustang.
A six-speed Magnum transmission dispatches that power to the ground, while Pirelli PZero tires are tasked with (somehow) trying to grip the road. Baer brakes hide behind those HRE rims, while JRI coilovers and HyperTech springs bless the Camaro with some degree of competency in the bends.
