I have a slick 1963 Chevy Pickup for sale. Restoration cost 20k. The truck is maroon in color, looks awesome! Everywhere I go in the truck people stop and stare. The truck has a 327 under the hood (lots of chrome), 350 transmission, all leather custom interior, tilt bed, wood paneling along the bed, new shocks , new springs, new battery, all gauges work except speedometer and shows 39 miles on it, has cd player, recently installed exhaust pipes. I bought the truck from a guy who bought it from the original owner who spent over 20K on this truck. I have not done anything to the truck, what you see is what you get. Looks like someone fix the truck from the frame up, as you can see on the pics the entire frame has been primed and painted. Lots done to this truck, runs and drives great. Has a few chips on the paint here and there but nothing major. Rims have a bit of corrosion on them, not a lot though. Wood in bed is not treated and shows wear and cracking, may have to be replaced. Tilt bed works fine with switch behind driver seat. Lots of new parts. Wood railing comes off very easily if it is not your style. Has disc brakes in front and drums in the back. Any questions please feel free to ask, I will answer as best I can since I bought the truck like it sits. The truck is located in Memphis TN and buyer is responsible for shipping costs. I will require a $800 dollar deposit within 48 hours of end of auction. I do have a reserve set on this auction. Thanks for looking and good luck bidding. I will try to get a video of the truck soon.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
It's been a good week for heavy-duty truck buyers. First, Ram revealed the Black Package for its HD trucks, then it rolled out its new Power Wagon, and now Chevy's getting in on the action with its Silverado High Country HD. Okay, so it may not pack quite the attitude of Ram's latest 2500-series offerings, but the High Country HD will come as a welcome addition to the Chevy Trucks range to those looking to pull their horse, boat or other trailer without skimping on creature comforts.

Rolled out a little under a year ago, the High Country trim is Chevy's answer to the likes of the GMC Denali, Ford King Ranch and Ram Longhorn. It has until now only been offered on the light duty, 1500-series Silverado, but now extends to the 2500 and 3500-series HD models, as well.
So what sets a High Country pickup apart from lesser Chevy trucks? You'll be able to pick it out based on its chrome horizontal grille, body-color bumpers, 6-inch tubular side steps, 20-inch chrome wheels (18-inch on the 3500 and 17-inch on the dualie) and, of course, plenty of special badging. But it's inside where the High Country makes its mark, with a cabin decked out in saddle brown perforated leather, seats that are both heated and cooled, eight-inch touchscreen with full MyLink suite, Bose audio and park assist functions front and rear to keep those color-keyed bumpers looking fresh. (Though Chevy hasn't yet showed us the interior of the HD model, it'll presumably look mostly the same as the cab in the 1500 High Country in the gallery below.)
Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.
