This is a true daily driver. It has a brand new crate 350 with less than 6000 miles straight from GM. Every item bolted to the engine is new such as starter, alt, electronic distr, headers, radiator, 4barrel holly, and all bolted to a 700r transmission that was taken down to the last bolt and reworked. This is a power steering power disc front brake truck. All lights work as do the gauges. There is a new fuel tank and sending unit but gauge still bounces in dash. Speedo works but also bounces some. All original dash and not cut up. Has new wiper motor and switch and a new lock kit for doors and glove box. Front and rear glass is new with new seals. Has new rubber seal for healiner but the liner itself is not there. Brand new tires and American racing wheels. The rear end is changed over to a late model 5 lug also. This is a very solid truck. No rust however there is a crack in an older repair in cab corner. Floors are rust free. Paint is fair but as pictures show, gas has caused paint damage where it over flowed causing peel. I drive this truck down the interstate at highway speeds without a glitch. Turns 2100 rpm at 65mph. Beds wood and solid and I drive and use the truck. Has new front and rear bumpers. Also just installed a factory correct speaker system but has no radio. Brand new Battery, there is a bit of filler on one kick panel under passenger door. Think its just glazing but could have been smoother. Late model steering colume and fuse box. No heat or a/c. True dual exhaust that sounds amazing. For more info call or text 731-446-7099. First time bidders with 0 history contact me first as i may delete your bid. Sorry but so many people who dont finish a transaction these days so we do this to prevent relist fees. This is a tight old truck but im looking more for a earlier model truck is the only reason shes for sale. Just like the 1920-1950s style myself these days. I have clear title in hand.

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.
General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.
As we continue to put together all the data for the year-end edition of By The Numbers, General Motors has announced that it sold more than a million vehicles in the US last year that achieved at least 30 miles per gallon on the highway. More impressively, GM managed this feat using multiple strategies including small vehicle size, turbocharged engines and hybrid or plug-in technologies across four brands (Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC) accounting for 13 separate models. This number will grow even more in 2013 thanks to cars like the all-electric Spark, the diesel Cruze, the range-extended Cadillac ELR and the Buick Encore compact CUV.
GM's small car sales were up 39 percent last year helping to attain this million-sales mark for 30-mpg models, and almost 40 percent of all GM sales consisted of cars with fuel-efficient I4 engines. In regards to more advanced means of improving fuel economy, GM says that it plans on having 500,000 vehicles with "some form of electrification" on the road by 2017.
