Up for auction is my 1952 Chevrolet Sedan Delivery panel van which I initially put a lot of work into. It started life as a 6 cyl. which threw a rod and ended up in a closed down wrecking yard in town. I salvaged it and added a 283 small block with double hump heads, cam, clear distrib. cap, etc. It did have a 4 barrel double pumper and intake but it started acting up and I switched it over to a 2 barrel carb and intake I already had. I tried to keep it running and started off and on through the years till a couple of years ago. I have also kept it in primer the best I could to keep it from becoming too overly rusted. It has a Saginaw 4 Speed , shortened driveshaft and 1972 Chevelle 10 bolt rear-end, Gratiot Auto Supply front motor mount kit, Electric frame mounted fuel pump, Chevrolet Truck tandem master cylinder for the clutch and brake system, a Ron Francis wiring harness was installed with a smaller custom foam grip steering wheel. One guage panel was missing when I acquired it. The rear bumper is off the car but included ( they are both rusty). I installed real hardwood flooring in the rear, sanded and stained. Started putting panel board around the inside and top of the van to have something to attach carpet to.    This panel van originally had a window cut into the passenger rear side ( to see out better??) when I bought it, so I tack welded in a piece of flat metal from a 1957 Chevy hood and fiber-glassed over it. It looked good till a couple years ago when the weather started working on it. The fenders and body are mainly in very good shape, the hood has a strip tacked to it down the nose that warped the hood in a couple spots. The grille is rusted over now-see pictures. I have all the side chrome pieces I took off this car when I started working on it back in 1976. The glass would need to be replaced as some windows have chips cracks, etc. The rear door glass is good though. I have the original keys to the doors and the ignition. The passenger door is stuck now for some reason as I couldn't get it to open last time I tried.    The fenders and body are solid but the metal would have to be sanded really smooth to make it look nice again. The front floor boards are rusted out and would have to be replaced. As you can see in the pictures I have been using it for storage for parts of my other car projects. (sorry it takes away from the picture of the actual car)   The front bushings and king pins were replaced the first year or two I had it as was the gas tank taken out, cleaned and internally coated for rust prevention.  The motor has sat a few years without being cranked but last Summer I could turn the crank manually, but the oil on the dipstick is getting milky looking from condensation getting in it. (I've had the motor covered up with plastic in case the hood let water through at the center seam).  This is one reason I need to sell it before it ruins as I am losing my storage space and would rather see someone else get some use out of it as I've only got to drive it one time since I did all the work on it. I got sidetracked on it due to getting married, kids and a divorce as well as having too many other projects going at the same time.  It would make a nice cruiser, custom, Rat Rod , El Camino?? or Gasser with a Straight Axle under the front end and I'd like to know someone actually would get to finish this car and enjoy it as it should be!  I have a clear title to this car and the Winning bidder is to pay a deposit through Paypal and to pay the remaining amount with CASH ONLY when picking up the vehicle. This auction is for serious bidders only and must realize they are Responsible for picking up and hauling off the vehicle within a reasonable amount of time as I am losing my storage space for it. Also --The rear brakes may be locked up or rusted to the drums as we had trouble in the past trying to park it in the spot it is in now- had to drag it. The aluminum mag wheels are in okay shape but most of the tires are flat and may not air up. It uses 5 lug chevy 14" or 15" rims.  Since I've described this car to the best of my knowledge and knowing the amount of work in getting it restored, I am selling it AS-IS.

GM investing $167m in Spring Hill for new midsize vehicles

Tue, 06 Aug 2013 18:59:00 EST

General Motors has announced a large investment in its Spring Hill, Tennessee facility. The former home of Saturn production will be getting a $167 million addition to a previously announced $183 million, to cover a pair of new midsize vehicles. The investment is expected to create 1,800 jobs at the factory.
That $350 million is being divvied up for a pair of programs at Spring Hill. The first will take the bulk of the money ($223 million) and create 1,000 of the 1,800 jobs, while the other will take the remaining $127 million and generate the leftover 800 positions. But GM says the investment will cover "midsize vehicle programs." So what could they be?
The leading candidate in our minds is a new crossover for Buick, called the Anthem, that will slot between the Encore and Enclave, but will be slightly smaller than the Equinox and Terrain. As we've explained, the new model will likely be the first product to sport GM's new D2UX platform, which will eventually replace both the Delta and Theta platforms. Spring Hill is already building the Equinox, so there could be some credence to this theory.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible is the track car for sun worshippers

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:11:00 EST



Supercharged, 6.2-liter V8? Check. Seven-speed manual? Check. Obsession with weight? Check.
What did you expect when Chevrolet said it was bringing a new Corvette variant to the 2014 New York Auto Show? Maybe a sticker and trim package, like the C6 Corvette Grand Sport or a tie-in deal like the Black Widow car from Chicago? On the opposite end, maybe there was an even more hardcore Z06 waiting in the wings. Who knew?

2014 Chevrolet Silverado tows in new configurator, microsite

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 16:05:00 EST

Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.
