1956 Chevrolet Other Pickups on 2040-cars
Century, Florida, United States
1956 Chevy 3200 long bed with LS engine
Custom made truck, I built this truck & I used a 04 Colorado frame with the stock suspension. I installed LM7 5.3
engine with 4L60E transmission. It came out from a wrecked 06 Avalanche with 94k miles. PCM & Stand-alone harness
conversion installed. It also has a new water pump, radiator, injectors, coils & etc.
New windshield, windows & all seals install. I used a Kwik Wire 14 Circuit Wire Harness kit & put a Tilt column
with an intellitronix Digital dash. I fabricated custom piston motorcycle tail lights. Truck rides on 22x9 steel
wheels on 265/30 tires. I hide the PCM & fuse box under dash & I custom made inner-fenders, firewall and engine
cover to make the engine bay super clean. Interior has beautiful black and grey seats and panels with seatbelts.
For exterior I was going to go with patina and after a little prep & first coat everyone convinced me to leave as
is so I just added a flat coat. I wanted to drive it daily & enjoy it; I didnít want to spend 7k on professional
paint job so I left it as is.
I drive the truck every day & Iíve already put 2500 miles with no issues at all. This is a super fun truck and
you get a lot of attention. If you are a shy person this is not for you! I will continue to use the truck until I
sell it. The only reason why Iím selling is because I have too many projects going on.
To have a completely show truck it needs A/C, radio, and windshield wipers motor (Linkage is there). Professional
paint and air ride suspension.

After you've convinced your better half to let you buy a new Corvette, then comes the hard part... actually figuring out which 'Vette you want. While Chevrolet has yet to release the official configurator for the 2014 Corvette Stingray, it did give us something else to kill some time playing around with.
The C7 Corvette "colorizer" recently went online, and it lets you look at the car in all of its available colors and wheel options from four different angles so that when this car does go on sale, you know exactly which one you want. It includes the Corvette's full pallet of colors including Torch Red, Laguna Blue and the hue you see above, Velocity Yellow. Toss in the black wheels, and we're sold. If you have some time this afternoon, be sure to check it out the Corvette colorizer for yourself, and even if you don't have the time, we've put together a gallery with all of the possible color combinations.

The Detroit Free Press is reporting that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may expand a recall campaign for faulty brake lamps. The agency is currently looking into complaints that certain 2004-2011 Chevrolet Malibu models as well as some 2007-2009 Saturn Aura sedans may have brake lights that do not illuminate when the driver presses the pedal. Alternatively, the lamps may also illuminate without input from the driver. General Motors recalled 8,000 Pontiac G6 models from the 2005 model year for the same problem, and NHTSA is currently investigating whether to add 550,000 more G6 models built between 2005 and 2009 to the list for the same issue.
In addition, investigators are currently examining 97 complaints from Malibu and Aura owners with the same trouble. If NHTSA adds those models to the recall campaign, more than one million units could be covered. GM, meanwhile, says there have been no accidents or injuries as a result of the problem.
According to a letter from General Motors to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, flaws in the build process of the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu have led to the recall of 8,519 cars. Units built between December 6, 2011 and January 15, 2013 may have been assembled with rear suspension cradles that had insufficient torque applied to certain bolts. That out-of-spec assembly could lead to issues ranging from slight noises to a loss of vehicle control.
The problem was first noticed in December of last year by a GM test fleet driver and eventually tracked back to the improperly torqued bolts on the suspension cradle assembled through July 2012 by a supplier located not too far from the Malibu's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly Plant. Since an official NHTSA recall notice has not been issued yet, it isn't clear whether or not Detroit-built Malibus were the only ones affected (the 2013 Malibu is also built at GM's Fairfax Assembly Plant in Kansas City, Kansas). Dealers will fix the problem by inspecting vehicles for proper torque specs, retightening if not within specs and, in some cases, perform a rear-wheel alignment.
