This is a no reserve auction. Please do not send me messages asking what the reserve is.
Please do not bid on my truck if you are not serious. If you and a buddy are pulling a scam by bidding my truck up and then backing out at the last minute to scare off other bidders, I will report you to Ebay for auction tampering.
Please feel free to ask questions about the truck before bidding, but please don't wait until the last hours of the auction. Also, please be patient with my responses as I am usually quite busy.
Up on the auction block is my 1977 Chevrolet Cheyenne truck. It is a pretty clean mostly original truck. As far as the body is concerned, it is above average for the age of the truck. I am pretty sure this truck has been in the Colorado desert it's whole life. There are no rust outs now as I have replaced both lower cab corners and both front fender lower rear sections with new patch panels from LMC truck. I also modified the inner panels to not hold dirt and debris in these areas anymore as to prevent future rust issues. Everything else is solid and rust free. I have had a few of these trucks and this by far is the most rust free one I have ever seen.
Obviously it has been repainted. The paint was faded and I just decided to respray the whole thing after the rust was repaired. It has 3 fresh coats of PPG Omni factory color code GM 25 light blue metallic on it. The paint looks really good, but it does have some flaws. If you are expecting a perfect show quality paint job this probably isn't the truck for you.
Mechanically it is in decent shape. I have replaced the spark plugs, ignition coil, cleaned the distributor grounds, replaced the starter, set ignition timing and adjusted the carb. The engine runs good, starts every time, runs nice and cool and has great oil pressure.
The brakes have plenty of material left on both the front pads and rear shoes. All brake components seem to be in good shape other than a couple of grooves in the left front brake rotor.
It cruises nice and smooth down the highway.
I have disassembled, cleaned and greased the shift lever for the 4 wheel drive so it shifts into 4x4 with ease.
All dash gauges, lights and accessories work except as described below in the "Problems" section.
I do have the A/C compressor and brackets, but it is currently not installed.
350 small block V8
Th350 automatic transmission
4 barrel Rochester carburator
Part time 4 wheel drive with high/low range
Manual locking hubs
Front disc brakes
Dual side gas tanks
Edelbrock intake manifold
Dual batteries with isolator (currently only 1 battery is installed)
Chrome step bumper with receiver hitch
Left side fuel tank not hooked up
Front left brake rotor has grooves, but brake pads are still good.
Front drive shaft CV joint is loose
Carpet is worn
Dash pad has some splits
General wear for age
Missing stereo ( I do have a brand new, still in the box aftermarket tape deck that can be purchased separately. Please message me if you want pictures of it)
Tailgate is dented
A/C not working
I am offering to the winner of this auction the option of repairing all of the above items except for the A/C at a super discounted labor price of $18.00 per flat rate hour. The winner is responsible for all parts costs if they choose to use my services. I am more than happy to give a price quote on all or some of these items if you are interested prior to the auction ending.
As with every auction I've ever done, I am sure there is something I have forgotten. Again, please feel free to contact me about any questions you have or if you want some more pictures.
Thanks for looking and good luck.

If you're burnt out on musings about the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll want to go ahead and skip this post. Motor Trend reports General Motors is hard at work on a low-cost version of the seventh-generation sports car for 2015. Rumored to be called the Corvette Coupe, the car will forgo the Stingray and skip the 450-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 engine in favor of a 5.3-liter V8 with under 400 ponies. If you're keeping track, that's a shade of the same engine found behind the headlights of the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.

The report also suggests the Coupe will receive a number of aesthetic tweaks to separate it from the Stingray, including different front and rear fascias as well as new front fenders and a rear diffuser. Motor Trend says the point of all this is to cut the car's price tag, which means we may see a Corvette on showroom floors for less than $50,000 if this car comes to fruition.
General Motors hadn't had a recall in India since 1995. That changed when it was discovered that certain employees were playing tricks with local emissions testing in order to ensure passing grades for engines. More than ten GM Powertrain employees in India and the US have been let go over the ensuing emissions flap, including Sam Winegarden, VP of global engine engineering, a man who has been with the company since 1969, leading development of some marquee powerplants.

According to Automotive News, an internal investigation revealed that employees "violated testing procedures," sometimes swapping specially prepared low-emissions engines during testing regimes for the Chevrolet Tavera SUV equipped with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines. Employees were also manipulating weights in order to get vehicles placed into different emissions categories. The discovery has led to GM recall the 114,000 Taveras produced over an eight-year period and halting their production and sale.
The Economic Times of India reports that the issue is due to "a faulty component." GM has developed a solution to the issue, and once it is validated in testing and approved by the Indian authorities, the recalled vehicles will be fixed at dealers and production will resume.
Word has it General Motors may offer as much as 700 horsepower in the C7 Corvette ZR1. Motor Trend reports the next Corvette Z06 will continue to rely on its naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 engine for thrust, but the lump will deliver substantially more power. How much more? MT says the engine could deliver up to 600 ponies. That's a jump of 95 horsepower over the current Z06, though no figures have been finalized as of yet. Right now, GM is reportedly waiting to see what sort of grunt it can glean from the next ZR1.
The automaker has already made it clear it will resurrect the LT5 name for the new supercharged V8, and if GM is already pulling 600 from the Z06, the big dog ZR1 would theoretically offer 700 horsepower. Either way, the range-topping Corvette will be suitably insulated from its less potent siblings. Stay tuned. We aren't likely to see the Z06 for at least a year, with the ZR1 trailing along at some point there after.
