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.

The official debut of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is only part of the excitement for fans of Chevy's virtuoso sportscar. Although we got to see the car and some of its preliminary specs in Detroit and Geneva, there is still no word on pricing and some of the juicier data points we've been waiting for - such as confirmed power output, EPA estimated mileage figures and performance numbers. Until then, CorvetteBlogger has gotten its hands on the order guide for the coupe version of the car - in both base and Z51 iterations - revealing tidbits like standard and optional features and available color combinations.

Some other new details made it onto the order guide, such as our first interior specs for the coupe including slightly less hip room and headroom, more shoulder room and the same amount of legroom. To see the full order guide, head on over to CorvetteBlogger. From what we can gather, it sounds like more information will be revealed on April 25 during a party at the Corvette Museum, and for those sun worshipers patiently waiting for a convertible, it would appear you've got another model year to wait through.
This year's 12 Hours of Sebring wasn't exactly a foregone conclusion because we're still talking about racing, and anything can happen when the speeds are as high as the adrenaline and the desire. But we're still talking about Audi bringing it's two top-spec racers - and its huge budget and its nearly neurotic attention to detail - to a race that it uses as a test bed for The 24 Hours of Le Mans and as a way to open the endurance racing season with a victory.

Besides, 12 hours is a long time, especially at Sebring, and things didn't go all Audi's way. On top of that, although it was a pretty quiet race, behind the Audis things got even grimier, with plenty of battles, plenty of mechanical issues, and the new BMW Z4 GTE and Viper GTS-R being race tested. Oh, and that brand new chromed-out DeltaWing...
Kurt Busch will channel Ricky Bobby for another NASCAR race, this time driving a Wonder-sponsored Chevrolet SS, in this weekend's Camping World RV Sales 500 at the Talladega Motor Speedway. Unlike past tie-ins, though, there's actually an element of sponsorship here (the "Me" car was done when Busch was running on a team without sponsorship).
It was arranged by Flower Foods, the new owner of the Wonder brand. Wonder was part of the bankrupt Hostess company, which temporarily exited the US market 2012, and set off the Great Twinkie Shortage.
Busch has made something of a habit of channeling characters from famous racing movies, most recently running Tom Cruise's City Chevrolet livery from Days of Thunder in a Nationwide Series race earlier this year. Busch kicked off his movie-inspired antics, though, at Talladega in 2012, when he raced El Diablo's ("It's like... Spanish for like a fighting chicken") "Me" car complete with a cougar on the hood. He even went so far as to channel the lovable idiot that is Ricky Bobby during the race, dropping a few catchphrases about macchiatos and slingshots.
