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.


Features include:
350 small block V8
Th350 automatic transmission
4 barrel Rochester carburator
Part time 4 wheel drive with high/low range
Manual locking hubs
Power steering
Power brakes
Front disc brakes
A/C
Tilt column
Dual side gas tanks

Modifications made:
Dual exhaust
Edelbrock intake manifold
Dual batteries with isolator   (currently only 1 battery is installed)
Chrome step bumper with receiver hitch

Problems include:
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.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012 11:27:00 EST

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.

Chevrolet planning low-cost Corvette under Stingray?

Wed, 27 Feb 2013 13:31:00 EST

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.

Subprime financing on the rise in new car sales, leasing too

Fri, 07 Dec 2012 08:44:00 EST

We all remember the financial crisis that began several years back. At its core was a splurge of subprime lending for housing loans. The housing bubble burst, triggering a collapse of the mortgage-backed securities market. Apparently, those types of loans still exist in the automotive industry, and the market share for these types of "nonprime, subprime, and deep subprime," loans has grown 13.6 percent compared to the third quarter a year ago.
According to an Automotive News report, high-risk lending expanded to 24.8 percent of total loans in Q3, up from 21.9 percent for this time last year. As this level increased, average credit scores of borrowers dropped to 755, down from 763 a year ago. In that time, the average financing amount increased $90 per vehicle, to $25,963.
At 818, Volvo maintains the highest per-owner credit score, while Mitsubishi has the lowest, at 694. The highest rate of borrowers was at Toyota, with 14 percent of the market, followed by Ford with 13.1 percent and Chevrolet at 11.1.
