Nice Original 1978 Chevy Silverado Short Box Stepside 4x4. This is a California Truck I bought 3 years ago. The previous owners claim the miles are original, but I have no documentation to support that, but it appears to be. The only reason I am selling is that I need the room and money to buy my son a car for high school.
400 small block (original)
Nice body and paint a couple dings and a few chips(minor details, it really shines up good)
No rust and no bondo that I can tell (it is very straight and very solid)
Nice original wood in bed (previous owner left a slide in camper on it so it stayed protected)
It has a cracked grille and windshield (common for the antenna windshield)
Seat has some rips and the passenger window crank broke off right at the time of listing(cheap to replace)
This truck runs like a top and always starts right up. It is fun to drive and is snappy with 373 geared rearend.
4 wheel drive works great! It has always been kept in my heated shop and never driven in the winter.
I will not accept "0" feedback bidders unless they have contacted me.
I urge you to come and inspect this vehicle (just email,text or call to set a time to see it)
This truck is sold as is where is and is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end this auction early at any time.
Reserve is low for this caliber of truck.
Payment: Down payment of $500.00 via PayPal within 48 hrs of auction close. Balance to be paid within 7 days of auctions close. Payment to be cash, cashiers check or bank to bank wire

General Motors isn't the first automaker to deliver in-car Internet access, but a proposed plan announced today could make the technology more widespread than any of its competitors have offered. By the 2015 model year, most Chevrolet, Buick, Cadillac and GMC products in the US and Canada will offer 4G LTE mobile broadband access. Initially, GM will just be pairing with AT&T to deliver this service, but additional carriers will be revealed in the future.

Current in-car Wi-Fi hot spots are limited to 3G, but GM says that 4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G service and will allow for full Internet access, including streaming video for entertainment as well as services like real-time traffic updates and navigation driving directions. There is also no need for a paired smartphone with this new system, which should make it easier to use, and GM and AT&T will also be working together to develop new apps for customers.
Buyers can expect to start seeing 4G LTE in their cars starting next year, and GM is already planning to expand the service to other global markets as well. All of the information from GM's announcement is posted in a press release below.
You wouldn't believe it by looking at the Corvette in these pictures, but the driver of the Chevrolet that slammed into the back of this moving truck survived with only non-life threatening injuries. The crash occurred near Los Angeles on the southbound 405 Freeway on Monday, March 4. Fire crews reportedly had to raise the moving truck in order to extricate the driver, who escaped perhaps the worst possible death imaginable - decapitation - by simply ducking prior to impact.
What's supposed to prevent a crash like this from becoming lethal is a Mansfield Bar, so named because the low-hanging bar affixed to the rear of semi truck trailers became mandated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the death of popular movie actress Jayne Mansfield in 1967 from a rear-end collision with a tractor trailer.
The Mansfield Bar is designed to prevent under-riding, and in 1998, the rules governing them were revised to lower the bar to 22 inches off the ground. Even at the height, some vehicles, including sports cars like the Corvette, have leading edges that are low enough to clear them. That's particularly true when the car in question is braking hard and its weight is pitched forward, lowering the nose even more).
